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:

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.

However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
