For some reason I need to change system locale temporarily. Can I change system locale using some command? or script? So that i can run it with tasker's built-in shell.

Couldn't figure that one out -- but maybe this answer may help you meanwhile for a work-around on faster switching locales. – Izzy Aug 24 '12 at 20:54

You can do this with the Secure Settings plugin. Parts of it require root, so I'm not sure whether this will work if you're un-rooted. It works perfectly for me, but I'm rooted.
