I bought an S3 Mini in Canada, but have noticed that I do not have a language option for Portuguese. I have done some research, and found that it is likely that the Portuguese language is included on the ROM, but is not accessible with my carriers version of Android. I can modify some language xml and config files in order to enable access as per this link http://www.pcwired.com/2013/07/how-to-add-international-languages-into-settings-on-android-samsung-galaxy-s4
However, the problem is that I need root access to do this, and there isn't a confirmed root for the Canadian version of the phone as there is with AT&T and Verizon versions of the S3 Mini.
Can anyone give me some advice on how to enable Portuguese language on this phone either through a rooting method that will work, or through another approach?
Am I out of luck until there is a root? I am disappointed that the carrier would hide this language as an option when it is, as I understand, already baked into the ROM.
