Any news about hacking the new sony readers (600/300)??

Hi,
I'm thinking of buying a PRS600 but the only thing that stops me is the reader doesn't support unicode. So, does anyone know about the unicode hacking??

Many thanks.

All Sony Readers support Unicode. However, the built-in fonts have only glyphs for Western texts. You can quite easily use EPUB files with embedded fonts or references to external fonts.

Thanks for the quick reply. So, I can reference to external fonts using the same method for PRS505 (thread: Unicode Font support without flashing)?

No, that approach still needs autorun support. However, you can use this technique.

Hi,
One more question: is this method 'reference to external fonts' can shows the book title in unicode (especially in chinese)?? Or just only shows the text inside the document??

Many thanks.
