SONY PRS900 for Chinese - problem with book title

Two friends and I bought a Sony PRS900 each, we would like to be able to read English and Chinese books. We managed to hack the PRS900 by installing the Russian boroda s/w Version 1.05a.

I can now read Chinese (ePub and PDF), but the problem is I cannot read the Chinese book titles, they all appear as 口口口口, can anyone help us??????

Thanks Pikoman and your hack package.This alansuyalun from Hi-pda. What's new in your new hack for 900? And can u add some new feathers like 650 into 900? To Poi and your friend: U can download the hack file from my mobile iDisk and please DO NOT use any software to download it,Just use IE,Firefox or Chrome.

Hi Alansuyalun,

Do you happen to have a solution to the Chinesization for Sony PRS-950? Can you help me how?

Thanks in advance.

Serif or Sans-Seriv (don't remember) is used for displaying book titles.
Replacing /opt/sony/ebooki/FONT with your own Chinese using mount --bind should do the trick.

As far as I see at least on x50 models there is enough space in flash to have built-in Chinese without resorting to mount --bind. (on 300/500 it wasn't the case).
