UniFEP 2.0 (developer: NFO Co., Ltd.) and Japanese fonts are required to input Japanese.’

That’s why ‘2.0-J 516205’ and ‘2.0-J 526205’ are listed in the FAQ as system updates, not ROM versions.

Although, I’m fairly sure that my Japanese Bunn Warmer prototype has a beta Japanese 1.x ROM, without an UniFEP packages.

I’ll have to dig that out and double check.
