Graffiti Classic Retrofitting

And now, a public service announcement from the Graffiti Classic Retrofitting Council.

Today I was reminded that I'd never mentioned the process of retrofitting a Graffiti 2 device with Classic Graffiti. Back in August of 2003 when this was a hot topic, others were covering this well, so I felt no urgency to repeat their efforts.

However, my brother Steve asked me about this today, so I thought it might be nice to mention the method again for those who might have missed it the first time. Actually, I'm just going to mention GearBits and Palm Infocenter's pages on the procedure rather than re-invent the wheel.

I have done something in addition to retrofitting my Tungsten E — I've saved the two library files (Graffiti Library.prc and Graffiti Library_enUS.prc) for Graffiti Classic on my SD card. This way I have them in case of a hard reset on the road, or to share with other Palm OS owners who might want to revert to Graffiti Classic. This has worked very well, especially for helping others get Graffiti Classic back on their devices.

Go forth and retrofit! ;-)

Update 2004-07-15: Gene wrote in with a link to download the Grafitti Classic libraries i'd mentioned in the post, over at Zan's Palm Stuff. Thanks Gene!

Update 2008-10-29: Here's a more reliable location for those Files for Palm OS 5.4 devices including the Tungsten T5, TE 2, Z22 and Palm TX in a single .zip package.

I have been meaning to do this for some time now, but I never knew where to do to get the 411. Thank you for making this post! I'll have to retro-fit my T|C this afternoon. :)
