How to add Hebrew fonts to your BlackBerry

24 Comments

Ronen has posted a great little how to for getting a Hebrew font on your BB. You can also do this by installing a multilingual OS on your device but hunting for the right one is a pain.

Smartmouth let me know that created a download page where you can easily find the right files to install Hebrew fonts on your device. The best part is that you do not need to reinstall your OS to get Hebrew fonts since this installs like an application. Smartmouth set it up that you can even add some of the read only fonts OTA but if you want to be able to write with the fonts you will need to do this using the desktop install files on the same page.

Check it out at www.cheservices.com/blackberry/

Right now this method supports:

OTA Hebrew Read Only & Menus:
o BlackBerry Storm, 83XX Curve Series, 88XX Series, 82XX Pearl Flip Series, Bold 90XX Series, & 7290

Desktop Manager Hebrew Read & Write support:
o BlackBerry 8900 Curve, 83XX Curve Series, 88XX Series, 82XX Pearl Flip Series, Bold 90XX Series

    The easiest way I found to install other languages on the device, is through the desktop manager, just do as follows:

    Open desktop manager(should have version 4.7)
    App loader
    Add/delete apps
    Click on advanced

    And select the languages you want to install and PRESTO

    Thanks for the link. Before, I was getting black boxes where the Hebrew letters should be.

    BTW, I love that clip. I don’t know how many other people are going to get the joke, though. YALLA LASHEM!!!!!

    Help Help Help!!!!!!

    While using the setup wizard ( i dont know why i did that considering that I switched devices ), I accidentally allowed all other languages to be deleted to save space. I forgot to select arabic to remain.
     
    How can i restore default settings on th phone? Or do I have to download the language settings from the net again?
