Japanese IME for HTC Desire
You want to write in Japanese on your HTC Desire, but you do not want to flash to original Softbank X06HT ROM?
There are several solutions on the market for Japanese keyboards, but I prefer the original HTC one from the Softbank ROM. So I got my hands on a Softbank ROM with the update to Android 2.2 and extracted everything needed for the keyboard.
There is a step-by-step instruction for the installation somewhere on the internet, but I wanted something easier, so I created a signed ZIP file that you can flash from recovery mode. You can find the file on my downloads page.
To install the keyboard, copy the iWNN-IME.zip file to your SDcard, boot into recovery mode and flash the file from there.
|You can switch between latin IME, number input and Japanese input with the lower left button.
Once in Japanese input mode you type and see the Katakana in the input field and the Kanji proposals below.
