Cool [GUIDE] UK Language settings for USfirmware

Quick guide for all anyone who has installed the US firmware on a UK Xoom and wants it to UK language.

First step keyboard

Settings>Language & input>Current input method>Configure input methods>Active input methods...

untick "Use system language"
Tick "english (UK) keyboard
Untick the rest.


Now for the "system language"

go to market and install MoreLocate 2 ( does not need root)
http://t.co/hvXhoZ3

open the app

click options (grid icon)

"add Locate"

Label - UK
Language - en
Country - GB

then click add

should now say English (united Kingdom) at the top if not tap UK


Hope this helps everyone.

Things its solved I can now use the app movies ( review app not google one) from the market before it just forced closed.

Okay also got UK bluetooth keyboard working as it should.

I checked out the android bug tracker thing, and there's a few people asking for different layouts, incl. dvorak to be able to be switched to and one android dev said they were working on it.
i left a comment anyway, as moto said it would be in their version of 3.1 - so who knows what will happen...

i was really hoping this would be in for 3.2 though
