English ROM for HTC Touch
Nov 12 2007, 10:23 PM EST | Post edited: Nov 12 2007, 10:23 PM EST
I bought a German HTC Touch and want to change the language of the operating system from German to English. To do this, I'll need an English-version ROM software and HTC are unwilling to do this for me. Can anyone help me?

Thanks,
F

I was able to acquire the ROM through HTC Asia (RUU_Elf_DOPODASIA_WWE_1.17.707.2B_4.1.13.46_02.97.90_BLUE_Ship) for my Elf. They have everything on that sie as opposed to HTC America.

Just follw the link that Rainman provided above, You will need to CID unlock your phone andthen reflash with an English (WWE) rom.

The procedure is all there.

Just look up the 6.1 update and ask it to install in English. It gives you the choice. 0  out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?

WITHOUT PREJUDICE >> I am only writing about how I did this and providing the links I found on the internet.

I have done it this way on an UNLOCKED HTC HD (Blackstone) device. Total time takes less than 30 minutes provided you have already downloaded all the necessary software and relevant rom for your device. I am not certain this will work for LOCKED devices.

1. Make sure u install Microsoft ActiveSync on ur pc... then do a first time sync between device and pc.
2. Disable screensavers, hibernation on pc.
3. Sync and again and flash with the HardSPL rom from OliNex. You can find this HardSPL software from here >> http://wiki.xda-developers.com/uploads/Unsigned_HardSPL_for_Blackstone_OliNex.zip
The flashing completes in under 2 minutes.
4. Reboot device. TouchFlo3D will launch into the native language the device originally came in. Don't fret, the new rom now enables you to flash other language roms, even official ones from HTC, bypassing licensing and verification checks (of cos you must have the relevant rom in the first place).
5. Finally, flash again with the newset WWE (world wide english, if it's english you want) rom. You can find a depository of roms here >> Official HTC Touch HD Rom's
It takes more than 15 minutes this time.
6. Device reboots in english, or the language of the rom you flashed.

BEWARE >> your product warranty is now no longer valid! Any further problems you encounter will be your own FULL RESPONSIBILITY! So be forewarned!

Usually phones in germany are already programmed with their native language installed, as is the english ones. Why do so many people buy phones from other regions? Maybe I am naive... but I just don't understand the logic behind it. 2  out of 5 found this valuable. Do you?
