How to enable traditional / simplified Chinese on HTC HD2 WWE ROM

How to enable traditional / simplified Chinese on HTC HD2 WWE ROM

47

One of the things that stop me to try Windows Mobile 6.5.X custom ROM is lacking of Chinese language support. Most of the custom ROMs out there don’t have it. Only a few of them have it. Without it, you will see lot of block shape on those Chinese characters. Finally, I found a solution to enable traditional and simplified Chinese on HTC HD2 Cookie Energy WWE ROM.

There are several “All-in-One” solutions from xda-developers ~ LEO_TC_HKCW_Fonts_IME_w_Global_Region, LEO_TC_HKCW_Fonts_IME_Only and LEO_Mingliu_IME_NLS_SSung. Tried all of them. Found out only MingLiu font can support Microsoft PowerPoint. AR HeiU20 Medium (gray) font and Arphic Crystal font do not support it. In the end, I installed the custom solution that matches my need as I don’t need to use Samsung IME.

HTC Ezinput IME V4 supports ZhuYin, PinYin, CangJie, Stroke and Handwriting with HK Common Word. And it integrated LEO08843-02 ~ improve HTC HD2 Handwriting Stability and LEO07879 ~ addition Hong Kong Common word.

If you are using WWE custom ROM like Energy ROM Series 23569, Duttys Leo HG V3.9 23569, CleanEX HyperRom v11.5, ChuckyROM-23123-Tabtastic with SFX, CleanEX OzROM V3.40 WM6.5 21905, Artemis v21.5 Level A WWE and TOUCH X-TREME 2 Build 2.0.00.01 23569 and wanted to type or read Chinese, this is the solution for you…

      You are in handwriting mode. You can change to other Chinese input like PinYin.

      • Shawn

        I do not know how to do that or see it anywhere, can you step by step show me. And another thing this is a new HTC hD2 (t-mobile) it is not install with these yet, Energy ROM Series 23569, Duttys Leo HG V3.9 23569, CleanEX HyperRom v11.5, ChuckyROM-23123-Tabtastic with SFX, CleanEX OzROM V3.40 WM6.5 21905, Artemis v21.5 Level A WWE and TOUCH X-TREME 2 Build 2.0.00.01 23569. I dont even know how to find these too

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Not sure it works on stock ROM or not. To change input setting, click on the keyboard on center bottom.

  • Shawn

    these step is so confusing, and my htc hd2 for t-mobile cant reset by holding the volume down key :(

    You can select which SPL version to install in “Choose SPL” screen. To check your SPL version, hold the Volume Down button and do a reset.
    It is possible to downgrade to this SPL, by just flashing to an Official ROM with this SPL version.

    3) Features
    – Disabled CID Check, so you can flash any official ROM without using a Gold Card.
    – Security Level = 0, so you can use all the boot loader commands (for developers).
    – This HSPL will not get overwritten when flashing a full NBH with SPL via RUU.
    – No NBH signatures check, so you can flash unsigned ROM images.

    4) Warranty Issues
    Be warned, Installing HSPL may void your warranty.
    If you need to send your device to a Repair Centre, make sure that you uninstall HSPL!

    5) Uninstallation
    Only way to remove the HSPL is to flash an original SPL from SD card.
    – Take any “RUU_signed.nbh” from a ship ROM and copy it to SD card.
    – Rename it to “leoimg.nbh”
    – Reset the device while pressing the volume down button.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Gregory, you are most welcome here. :)

      For weather animation ~ use Edit Quick Links – Insert new link – Select Toggle Switch – Pick Weather Toggle. You can on / off weather animation with it.

      For Opera browser ~ Go to Settings – Select Display – Untick Mobile View. Or change the setting on that particular website.

  • Gregory

    but for the Opera browser, i have done as what you mentioned above, the Mobile view is “Untick” by default, so the display still maintain the same as Mobile view even i the checkbox is unticked. Is there any way to make it display like normal computer view?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hmm… I don’t have GPS issue with Energy ROM + Chinese input. No setting is needed. Try reset phone and see. If cannot, hard reset it. If still cannot, try other version Energy ROM.

      • Jack Quah

  • Tim

    thank you very much, so far so good. it is working…..

  • Timothy

    Thank you very much for the information. I tried all three files on my T-Mobile HD2. Character display and input worked great. Well, at least until I did a soft reset. Then, the input completely flaked out. The icon at the bottom center morphed into a indiscernible hazy cloud. And, hitting it shifted the bottom part of the screen, but no type of keyboard would appear. No type of input, Chinese or English, was possible after that point. And, this is with a stock ROM (3.14.531.1). After removing both IME_CHT_LEO_HKCW_V4.zip and UseMyNLS_Global_Region.zip, but leaving the fonts, the input keyboard returned to normal, I’m able to see Chinese characters. So, at least it’s still an improvement.

    BTW, do you have any idea how to get accented pinyin characters to display? Basically the 3rd tone vowels with the exception of ‘e’ show up as blank square boxes.

    Thanks!

  • kc
