Unicode support via decompiling FW


New member

Hi all,

Is there anyone interested/capable of decompiling the original FW and adding extended characters support?

Full Unicode may be a no go due to possible size limitations, however substituting some characters may be easy if one knows what to look for.

Greek language for instance shares some characters with the ASCII alphabet.

I know this has been done with the Pebble watch FW in the past. There is a website that allows anyone to create his customised FW - no rocket science required.

Could a kind technical person among you take a look at this?

Expecting MS to do it is futile - I think.

Thank you in advance!

Best regards
