hi,

i've ben trying to get japanese handwriting to work on my US SL6000. Using the input files from older models doesn't work. I can't seem to find any japanese SL6000 roms from which i can extract the necessary files. if there is someone out there who has an japanese sl6000 and wouldn't mind helping me out, i'd like to have a copy of the rom or just the IME files. if there aren't any with these files, perhaps the IME files from a newer model C3x00 might work.... thanks in advance.

Here is the Japanese ROM in NAND backup form. You can flash your 6000 with this and then copy all the files to a memory card.

well, so much for tinkering...

i remember about more than a year ago i managed to extract the japanese handwriting files from a C series zaurus (which didn't work on the SL-6000) which was in a cramfs image. but things are rusty these days (old age catching up probably) and i can't manage to extract anything from the above nand backup file. i used a extraction script i found via google cache on a forum from the site where i got the file above (http://externe.net/zaurus). edited it to work with SL6000 (partitions 7, 25 and 32mb) but none of the files worked.

i know i can use the above file to flash the whole zaurus, but i only want to do that as a last resort.

So if someone can help me out and explain how i can extract files from the above nand backup i would be eternally grateful.

Yes you could extract them the hard way, by using a script that strips the OOB NAND data, splitting it into partitions, and using the blkmtd driver and a loopback device to mount the jffs2 image.

But.. your "last resort" idea is just so much easier and faster. Just make a NAND backup of your current state, flash the JP image, get the files, and then restore your backup.

i flashed the nand (but made a backup of the current condition first) and it all worked fine. japanese rom running fine, except that the keyboard layout is messed up, which doesn't really matter coz i only flashed to get to the files i needed. but i decided to keep the jap rom because i deleted my nand backup with the US image *doh*. but now i need the keycode.tbl for the US version. if you have that for me, it would be appreciated =)
