For anyone who may be following this thread, I was successfully able to get emoji SMSs on my phone using T. Perl's fix: http://thp.io/2014/emojifix/

Additionally, I copied the /home/user/* files from the Harmoji .deb into my home directory and I can even view the emojis. Here's the .deb file: https://code.google.com/p/harmoji/downloads/list

I did a full backup of my OS before doing this as he mentioned that it isn't tested in the n900 and I would recommend the same. However, it doesn't look like the modifications can do anything but break SMS for you, which is reversable by coping back your libsms-* so file.

mikegioia, just to get this clear...
1-install Harmoji .deb
2-un-tar libsms-utils and run patcher script
3-receive(and make?) emoji SMSs?

(edit) see correct instructions downthread

1. wget https://thp.io/2014/emojifix/emojifix-bin.tar.gz
2. tar xzvf emojifix-bin.tar.gz
3. cd emojifix-bin
4. ./patcher /usr/lib/libsms-utils.so.0.0.0 libemojitils.so.0
5. cp /usr/lib/libsms-utils.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/libsms-utils.so.0.0.0.orig
6. cp libemojitils.so.0 libsms-utils.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/
# Now for the ability to read emojis
7a. Download/Extract the deb or tar then navigate to the fonts dir. It will look something like the below.
harmoji_0.6.6_armel.deb\data.tar\home\user\.fonts\https://harmoji.googlecode.com/files....6.6_armel.deb
or if you don't know how to extract deb files
7b. Download the tar'd fonts then extract https://www.dropbox.com/s/e9656lbkm3...ji.tar.gz?dl=0
8. cp AndroidEmoji.ttf SoftbankOSXMLEmoji.ttf /opt/usr/share/fonts/.
9. Reboot

That part is where the buggy original libsms-utils is replaced by the one with correct handling of unicode emojis.

They're just commands so you should be able to copy and paste but I'll try to expand.

Steps are done on the n900.

2. Extract the file :
(Note: You have to be in the same directory as the file you downloaded)
Code:
tar xzvf emojifix-bin.tar.gz
3. Navigate to the newly created directory :
Code:
cd emojifix-bin
4. Run the binary patcher :
Code:
./patcher /usr/lib/libsms-utils.so.0.0.0 libemojitils.so.0
5. Make a backup of the lib you're about to replace :
Code:
cp /usr/lib/libsms-utils.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/libsms-utils.so.0.0.0.orig
6. Copy the the newly created fix and patched lib files to /usr/lib/ :
(Note: You will need permissions for this)
Code:
cp libemojitils.so.0 libsms-utils.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/

If we wanted to add an emoji to our SMSs would we need to write a keyboard plugin?
Trying to think of other way to get them into a SMS, maybe cut/paste from text file?

Even if we dont have a way to send emoji this receive fix needs to be included in CSSU so emoji SMSs are not just ignored by the N900 but ack'ed as received to sender.

Cut/paste of emoji from http://getemoji.com and wikipedia into the N900's SMS conversations appear properly when pasted but is causing me to get unsendable SMSs, receive mightg work, can't tell though as wife and I both have N900s.
