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.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
