    Default Add words to iPhones spellcheck dictionary?
    Hey guys. Just a general question really. I've noticed that some words get added to the iPhones dictionary if you type them enough. But some words don't get added no matter what. For example, when I'm trying to say "****", it always changes it to "shot". I'm sure you can guess what word I mean . I barely ever use the word "shot" so it's very annoying when I type the other word and it gets changed to this.

    So is there a file I can access via iFile or SSH and manually add words to the dictionary so that they won't get changed? Thanks in advance

    Search the forums first, there is countless threads on this..
    But as your here, apparently these don't work in 4.1 but try adding the words into a note, or make a contact and just put the words in the name, search the words on tinternet or YouTube, these have all worked for me in the past but as I said, no guarantee for 4.1

    I tried a search and didn't find anything...

    But as for those methods you posted, you're right, they don't work on 4.1. Thanks for trying anyway.

    So does anyone know if I can manually add these words into the dictionary with iFile or SSH'ing into the iPhone? Thanks!

    Go to /library/dictionaries/apple dictionary there are a few data sheets and an XML file which looks like it's controlled by CSS.. It looks interesting but I can't understand it's use...
    For example look at the picture and you will see some shizz about what an album is, in iPhoto? What? I found that in the dictionary.xml

    Ah I see, I'm not too sure about that either iNT3Rv3NTiONZz. I'll wait until you get to a computer so you can have another look at these before I go messing stuff up :P Thanks for your help!
