Hi all!

I assume that the SE update-app is the same for all languages, and phone models. What came into my mind is that the app at some point decides what language-version the phone is provided with. Now if i could somehow trick the update-app to think the phone has a different language installed, then it would simply download and install an other language instead...

has anyone thought anything about this approach?

Well, i have no use of this, because i can't find a tool to re-flash the phone with these roms.. So the easiest thing would be to just tweak the Update application, and let this app do the job..

follow steps. Unless you have windows 7, then you need to install some alternate drivers or run a virtual XP and from there install it.

Pick what ever rom you want, or any rom from the forum, place it on your sd card and rename it tho kovsimg.nbh.
Backup all stuff you don't want to lose!!!
shut down phone, press the left and right silver buttons, simultaneously with the power button, keep them all pressed until you feel the phone vibrating, then release the power button, follow onscreen instructions.
Done
