Default replace wince.nls on WM5

I created a wince.nls file using the platfom builder.
I was able to replace the wince.nls file on the device
and changed the HKYLM\nls values to a different locale,
but for some reason the system does not use my file
and the locale is English
does anyone have an idea?
Thanks
Micha

wince.nls is read before the storage filesystem is fully initialized, and it is read from IMGFS section of ROM. So when you replace it with your own version it is not yet seen by OS. The same with registry settings. OS uses its own small registry from unmodifiable boot.hv file. Currently I'm looking for a method of modifying ROM so that we can add/replace files in IMGFS.

mamaich,
Take a look into the jasjar extended rom especially the arabizer suit cabs,bcz IMAGINET were able to arabize it, Mate, just take a look into those cab files, it might help you to how it worked. As I remember there's a cab has dll files that replaces the system files.
I'm back to the loyal device....
