    Default International setting for keyboard
    Thought I would share this howto for those who needs International keyboard.

    The International settings (including localizations, languages, and keyboards) are all present in the iPhone 1.1.1 firmware, but are by default disabled by Apple, probably because development is not yet completed for these features and/or because the iPhone has not yet been released outside the U.S. Nonetheless, they seem to work without causing any issues if you enable them. To do so:

    1. Use an SFTP client on your iPhone (Cyberduck, Winscp, etc)
    2. Log into your iPhone via SFTP from your computer
    3. Copy the file /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/M68AP.plist to your computer.
    4. Open M68AP.plist, and change the boolean /root/capabilities/International from NO to YES, then save the file.
    5. Upload the modified M68AP.plist to your iPhone, overwriting the original
    6. Restart your iPhone
    7. Now look in Settings->General->International

    enjoy.

    enjoy.
    i.e. Change the "false" to "true"

    BTW, works great, and this is why I upgraded to 1.1.1 and was disappointed when it wasn't there, as promised by SJ on his iPod touch keynote.

    make sure that you have SSH installed and activated
    if you havent install ssh, you can install it from apptapp.
    youll need to install bsd subsystem as well.
    both are located in the apptap>system>

    if this helps pls thank me.
    thank you

    What languages are present there?
    Is this method can also show international keyboard for 1.1.2 firmware? I mean the languages that are not yet implemented/finished.

    what is bsd subsystem? i am using windows and keeping getting network error: connection refused

  10. #10
    check if u hav open ssh installed. if not, then install it. you can only install open ssh if bsd subsystem is installed so install that too. next thing u shoul check is if u have a wifi network, if u do check if ur pc and iphone is under the same subnet. check ur phone ip, and use that to connect.

    hope this fix ur problem. if not we go deeper. check if ur firewall or windows firewall is blocking port 22.

    just tell me if u hav any questons or require instruction on the how tos of the above.

    sent from my iphone

    I have openssh installed, but noticed that bsd subsystem folder is missing. looked in unistalled and reinstalled it 4 times. It seems like it's not doing anything. Also, i have wi-fi connection and tried disabling my firewall. Apparantely no luck so far. Even tired changing SFTP to SCP

    any one else know why this could be happening?

    I can't find the "Enable International Menu" in the Installer/All Packages. I have 1.1.2 OTB 4.6 BL. Is there any way to get that App?

    I can't find the Cyberduck or Winscp in the Installer. Is there some SFTP client in it? Where could I find the Winscp or Cyberduck? I'm using 1.1.2 OTB 4.6 BL. Thanks.

    I used this patch to use japanese keyboard in 1.1.1
    now I upgraded to 1.1.3, naturally, the hack was wiped out but I edited it again, but now I can only see a few keyboards (english, french, german, and 2-3 more) but no japanese... how can I enable that specific keyboard.
    it was enabled in 1.1.3 immediately after upgrade (I've enabled it in 1.1.1) so i'm sure it's there somewhere, but once I opened preferences app, it was wiped out.

    Same problem here from Spain. My country does no appear in the "Region" settings.. but Botswana does!!! :-D

    no one can help? same problem here.

    This will do it.
    I noticed one problem, though. It killed my maps. So take maps.app out of the applications folder before installing it onto your phone. Can anyone get their maps.app and fileshare it to me? I really don't want to have to restore my phone.
    All other programs are fine, though.
