Thank you, pepak.

Is the software and process safe to use with a PRS-600? the guide seems to only talk about the PRD-505.

The answer is both YES and NO.

The font issues are the same and SonyFont works the same, too. The principle of the update is the same as well. But the actual flashing is a completely different beast and while it's not difficult per se, it requires extreme concentration and care and should be done by someone who is at least very familiar with computers if not the Sony hacking. I would strongly recommend first getting experience with hacking PRS505 (including changing system files by modifying the fsk image - that is, experience with just PRS+ or PRS Customizer or Universal Flasher IS NOT ENOUGH!) and when you are comfortable with that, you can apply eevrything you've learned to PRS600.

The reason I recommend this approach is that it is very hard to irretrievably brick a PRS-505, but it is relatively simple with PRS-600. You can learn your ways in a safe environment of PRS-505 and once you know what you are doing, hacking PRS-600 shouldn't be too dangerous. But it IS dangerous without the knowledge.

Heh, thanks. But I don't have access to a PRS-505 to fool around with... I guess I'll be stuck with the default fonts

I guess flashing for the prs 700 is out of the question? I'm really annoyed by the '?' substitution as well

It's not "out of the question", but I have no first-hand knowledge of anyone who successfully tried it. Theoretically, it is similar to flashing PRS600, which has been done a number of times.
