How to get Emoji (japanese emoticons) on any iPhone with firmware 2.2. The first thing you need to do is jailbreak your iPhone. Easiest way to accomplish this is via QuickPwn. After you have jailbroken your device, you need to edit the file located at /User/Library/Preferences/

Download the file via SCP and add the following boolean key as ‘true’: KeyboardEmojiEverywhere

Then go to the Keyboards section of the Settings app, hit Japanese, and turn on Emoji.
This works for any text field/view in the OS, websites, AND including the titles of items on SpringBoard (e.g. if you save a bookmark to the home screen).

    In Cydia there is an Emoji app from Ispazio under the tweaks section. Just download it and go to general>settings> keyboard etc…

    Since most people don’t have it all they see is a square box….what is the point unless you have all your friends do it.

    Why only give japan the ability to do this ..makes no sense.
