XPERIA X2 ROM Region Change

Although there hasn’t been a SPL for the X2 (and hence no custom ROMs), xda-devs member hertell has posted a method of spoofing the X2’s region code, which allows X2 owners to flash (officially released) ROMs that weren’t designed for their original country.

This method has been used to change X2s to GENERIC_UK, in order to obtain the new MR2 update. It is also possible to change to a completely different language; the following are available:

Originally posted by hertell

Belgium - GENERIC_BE
Czech - GENERIC_CZ
Danish - GENERIC_DK
Dutch - GENERIC_NL
English (Generic) - GENERIC_EN
English (UK) - GENERIC_UK
Finnish - GENERIC_FI
French - GENERIC_FR
German - GENERIC_DE
Greek - GENERIC_GR
Indian - GENERIC_IN
Middle East - GENERIC_MEA
Polish - GENERIC_PL
Portuguese - GENERIC_PT
Russian - GENERIC_RU
Singapore - GENERIC_SG
Spanish - GENERIC_ES
Swedish - GENERIC_SE
Taiwan - GENERIC_TW

This message is now updated with a 100% working, and quick way of changing your language for the X2 device. I have now tested with 4 different languages (fi, en, se and de), and all worked. I also updated the cabs to report to the Update Software that the phone has an old version. Now it does not complain that the latest version is installed!

Proceed to the thread for instructions and the cab downloads.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
