I bought HTC Desire HD and I want to change UI language to Russian. The issue is that I see in settings only English, German, Italian and French.

Is it possible to add other language without rooting phone?


You can use the same app that I found for my problem to fix yours:

Custom Locale

Custom Locale QR Code

Just install it and then select Russian as your predefined language and you're good to go mate.

You can try using MoreLocale2, for an easy locale change.


I have added my language using morelocale2..

Language : ta (Tamil) Country : IN (India)


I am able to add and select my language. But, It is not changing the default language of the device.. Still i could it see the things in english .. any suggestions?
