Im going to try and change my generic_SG to generic_UK after hearing its better. Requesting the extracted files for easy of access for everyone to try to change their language roms.

So this is the steps Im going to try as SOON as somebody generous can upload the extracted UK cabs:

Complete R3A Generic_UK Cab pack : http://www.megaupload.com/?d=35LZ05OO thanks to rx.


NOTE: BEFORE you do ANY of the steps below, make sure to DELETE C:\Program Files\Sony Ericsson\Update Service\db from my computer or you won't get MR2!

1) Do clean install of WM 6.5.2 using the soft-reset during SE customization bootscreen OR just simply clear phone memory located in settings -> system -> clear phone memory.

Detailed steps:

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.

4) Install ALL cabs to device, soft reset.
5) Update on SEUS, it will say latest firmware already, say YES to install anyway
6) Grats on Generic_UK and hello to MR2 =)

I would strongly recommend deleting all the files in this folder:

C:\Program Files\Sony Ericsson\Update Service\db

That is where any SEUS updates that have been previously downloaded are stored.

i've also given up waiting for GENERIC_SG so am giving the above a try. i'm about half way through installing the cabs.

its good to see that they have supplied us with Opera so we can choose between Opera and IE

Im going to try and change my generic_SG to generic_UK after hearing its better, but I am hoping someone can upload the extracted cabs. I KNOW ultra has posted how to do it, but thats why I am requesting the extracted files for easy of access for everyone to try to change their language roms.

So this is the steps Im going to try as SOON as somebody generous can upload the extracted UK cabs:

1) Do steps explained in first step up to the retry but and say NO
2) Download R3A UK rom
3) Extracted cabs from UK rom on SD card
4) On clean WM install ALL cabs? (Is this necessary?)
5) Update on SEUS again, say YES
6) Hopefully it will update it to generic UK

It works that way, I had GENERIC EN, I cleaned up the phone to bare Win Mo 6.5.2 (MR1 without SE cabs), downloaded R3a Firmware, extracted the cabs, installed them, upgraded the phone via seus (forced install since SEUS reads the phone and thinks it has MR2 install), and it installed the MR2 :)

So I have a Generic UK phone now ;)

Can someone help with how to extract whats needed from the downloaded ROM? I've downloaded UK_R3AA035 and have followed the instructions but get an error during extraction (error 5 I believe) and it fails to create the files I should have according to your posts. Or could someone post the cabs to copy over?

I have just found out how to avoid the manual installation of those cabs :) Very proud of myself.

Use SASHIMI 8 for an automated process of installing the cabs.

I think the manual installation was the most annoing part, and now we've managed to skip it :)

you have to soft reset when you see the "now installing customizations" screen.
after you start the x2 again it will ask you if you want to retry applying the customizations> there's the no button you'll have to tap on!!!:)
