Russification of the iPhone keyboard



Russification remained perhaps the only problem stopping potential buyers of the iPhone from buying a phone. Since the problem has reached alarming proportions (blondes and generally far from IT people are terribly afraid to buy an iPhone) , then the fans report that they decided to Russify the phone themselves. Russification of the keyboard is a professional apple-programmer Slava (slavikus) Karpenko, he's SKa in copyright on the screenshot.

Some features of the operation have become known, for example
Keyboard switching is planned to be implemented through the left key next to Space, the third push is the working version at the moment. Everything is packed in .pkg, the installation is fully automated. We are looking forward to the completion of the work.

Here's what the scorpios33 itself says about Russification:

The keyboard, unlike the interface, is quite complex and a new software package, there you need not just to change pictures, but to rewrite native Applet files signed with a native certificate. And so that they are adopted by the system. Try, for example, to change your native fonts - you got instant reaction of the system and full restore. Unfortunately, this work can be done by a very limited number of professionals, especially in our country, where they are not accustomed to writing and writing for natural unix (and not for Linux!).
