hi, there, thanks for the work of adding a Chinese patch. I am
desperately want the rockbox to be able to support Chinese
because I have a lot of Chinese MP3 songs amd music bearing
Chinese names ot ID3 tags. It is a big pain to covert them all

Could you help with this problem of mine? Thanks.

I wonder if you can provide a compiled version of Rockbox
with the Chinese patch? Thanks!
