Hi!

This is interesting information for owners of the Xperia X2 that want to change the device language to Spanish, and for others who want to study a new ways to change it to other languages.

The people in a Spanish forum have managed to unbrand a Spanish Vodafone based X2 using a trick to foil SEUS: the way is aborting the phone custiomization process, and then, installing manually a lot of CABs. This method also is useful to change the language from Stock English to Stock Spanish MR1.

I've already tried on my English based X2 already Updated to MR1, and it worked. Now I have a Generic Spanish X2 with MR1 installed.

The curious thing is that, this Spanish Stock ROM is far more stable that the same R1BA024 in English. I've used the phone with the original MR1 English for a couple of days an it was a real mess. But, this Spanish ROM is a little faster and it hasn't give me so many problems. The phone is really more stable (not perfect, but nearly close).

This is the link (all credits goes to dreamcrawler):

The instructions are of course in Spanish.

Cheers.

Jolo.

You need Flash Hard-SPL first. Then Flash ROM with another language.
But there is not any Hard-SPL for X2 yet.

Since its me who made it i guess ill take the task of translating it

TUTORIAL: DEBRANDING AND UPDATING YOUR XPERIA X2

1º Open SEUS, start a new update. EVEN IF IT SAYS YOU HAVE LATEST VERS, UPDATE IT ANYWAY.

2º ONCE IT REBOOTS, CALIBRATION SCREEN APPEARS. RIGHT AFTER CLICKING ON THE CROSSES, IT WILL APPEAR THE SONY ERICSSON LOGO, AND IT WILL START APPLYING THE CABS. PUSH THE RESET RIGHT after it starts applying (hidden behind the stilus, opening the battery cover).

3º After rebooting, the Sony Logo will appear again asking to retry. Press NO.

4º Now you will need a pack with all the cabs from the language firmware you want to change & update your X2. No matter if they are from the old firmware or the last one.The important part is they must come from the firmware with the language you want to turn your cellphone into. you can find how to extract said cabs here:

(damn forum, it wont let me post a link, in this same forum theres a post explaining how to extract roms, seek for it)

5º Once you have the cabs on your SD Card, you have to install them all, one by one. Once you are done, restart the cellphone.

6º Start SEUS again, run another update, force it if it says you have last version and you will get your X2 updated on your desired language.



I also made a tutorial to make your x2 stable, run it with SPB shell 3.5.3, and many other fixes. tell me if interested so i can translate.
