    I recently purchased another g1 after mine slipping out of my pocket and down a storm water drain when getting out of a car. It was also during a storm and my phone was washed away in seconds. Anyway I was eager to get another g1 and couldn't find it anywhere and found a supposed new one on ebay that said supported optus. I received it and it turns out it has a different rom installed called hiapk. Even though the localisation is English Chinese shows up in various places and when ever i try to use the keyboard i start typing Chinese.
    I can not read the hiapk webpage because it is not in my language. It looks rather interesting i have access to console and a recent update of android(which doesn't seem to happen in aus). Though it is useless to me at the moment.
    What should i do and can I do?

    managed to work out how to get the keyboard to work in English. Only issue now is the market is in chinese and in a few other places.

    Not sure if this helps...but at least the site is a little more readable.
