I am using the 2007.2 ( and the qtopia image, from SD card) image and I 
am using Hebrew in my FreeRunner (include right - to -left) read and write.

in the qtopia image I can read Hebrew SMS massages (right-to- left) but 
I didn't try to change / re-map the keyboard to Hebrew .

works fine for me.
