This enables Chinese in Rockbox v2.2. Or more

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
to English. But I do not know how to do with the patch.
Could you help with this problem of mine? Thanks.

Thanks a lot for your work on the chinese patch. Just
curious, is this patch for simplified chinese or traditional

The patch has been tested with traditional (big5) and
simplified (gb). You simply need an appropriate font and
character conversion table.

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

You can grab the binary from the files section in the
ChineseRockbox group:

The main guys there have JBR V2 also.
