    UPDATED to work with 1.2

    Here's how it's done. You'll need to have access to the Linux subsystem. You also may need to mount the file system
    Code:
    sudo mount -o remount,rw /
    Type this into your terminal:

    Code:
    cd /usr/palm/frameworks/mojo/submissions/200.18/resources/en_us
    Now:

    Code:
    sudo mv alternatechars_table.json alternatechars_table.json.old
    Now type:

    Code:
    sudo wget http://files.getdropbox.com/u/1517634/alternatechars_table.json
    Reboot your phone.

    Whenever you want to type a smiley you'll now have two options.

    <sym><k> will give you this:
    messaging_2009-26-07_182417.jpg

    and

    <sym><z> will give you this:

    messaging_2009-26-07_185203.jpg

    I would recommend the first, just because it's not so broken looking, but it does all work...

    Hey no problem. I need to redo the file though. It appears that although the smilies like >:-) should work, however it doesn't make the actual smiley. I will have it done in a few :-)

    File is fixed. For whatever reason, the true angry and evil smiley faces do not work, you have to use :mad and :evil. File reflects that now :-)

    If I reload this will it overwrite the previous file?

    No, type this in

    Code:
    sudo rm alternatechars_table.json
    then

    Code:
    sudo wget http://files.getdropbox.com/u/1517634/alternatechars_table.json
    And unfortunately you'll have to reboot again.

    Have you ever considered adding Japanese style smilies, kaomoji?

    Good question, I don't know. It's really just a text file, but if it is possible, it's beyond my current capabilities.

    @Kyusaku that wouldn't be hard at all to change the smilies. Would just have to upload your new set to the directory and make sure the filenames match.

    If you root your phone and gain access to the operating system you can have kaomoji.

    I did and I changed the emoticons icons with emoji's. So much better.

    This is great, and I'm using it, but since I'm not really up on my smileys, I don't know what most of the symbols will turn into after I click them, and it doesn't show until I actually send it.

    Is there any way to get the actual .png to show up when you push <sym><k> instead of the key strokes?

    I followed the instructions and rebooted. When I hit sym k I only get 3 smilies. When i hit sym z i get the standard alternate chars? I don't know where I went wrong, can someone please advise.
