Hi,
I follow your step and everything seems good. However, I stuck with step 5th, could you please describe how I can modify build.prop (you can find build.prop in "/system"). Set ro.product.locale.language=nl & ro.product.locale.region=NL (I found these records twice in build.prop and I changed both)?

Thanks,

There's more than one way to do it, but I did it using ES File Explorer.
You'll find build.prop by going all the way to the root of your filesystem and then enter the system folder (/system).
When you scroll down you'll find build.prop. Open it using ES notepad (or whatever is the name your local language).
Open the menu in the top right corner and choose "modify" (or whatever it says in your local language).
Find the records ro.product.locale.language & ro.product.locale.region and enter the right codes for your country and language.
Afterwards I had local feeds in Blinkfeed (I had to manualy delete the old chinese content though).

I found it, but when I edit and try to save, it shows error and it will not be saved.

Are you sure you are s-off and did you grant root permission to ES File Explorer in SuperSu app?

1. unlock the phone (see www.htcdev.com)

3. gain s-off (http://theroot.ninja/)
4. write Super CID (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2317536)
5. modify build.prop (you can find build.prop in "/system"). Set ro.product.locale.language=nl & ro.product.locale.region=NL (I found these records twice in build.prop and I changed both)
6. go to play store, remove Blinkfeed and then reinstall Blinkfeed.

I now have local news and/or feeds in dutch on my HTC One E8 (m8sw), you can probably get them in any language you like.

Thank you very much
You helped me to correct my butterfly s, 9060 which was showing only chinese feeds. now i am able to get English as well as local language (Hindi)
