Question about ViewSonic V35 Pocket PC
My grandmother ran into 2 pocket pcs at a yard sale. We tried to change the language so many times. We went to like every document on that whole thing but it stayed chinese. I expected it to be under setting and region, but it still didn't change.
First thing is to find out if there is even a rom available. I believe there is a rom update for that model on xda developers website

Hi, Pocket PC's have Windows OS installed on them. As with computers, you woun't find any option to change the language of the operating system. Your computer comes with english Windows, and however you try, it woun't be an option to change the language of the whole OS. It is the same with PDA's. But even harder than that, each PDA comes with a specific Windows, altrought it is the same version to other PDA's it has some specific things to each model. You can't install a Windows made for HP Ipaq to a Dell PDA because it will simply not work. Also, the language wich is skipped with a PDA is not to be changed. The producing company will consider this ilegal in some cases. I don't know why but they simply woun't want to change the language for you. However, there some triks to do that your self. To change a language means to change the whole operating system installed in the ROM memory. But like I said, the producers woun't simply allow that, and when you will try to install a diferent language ROM on the PDA it will give you some errors. I know of some ways to deal with this, but it works only for HP PDA's. It will be risky to try it on your own PDA. Also it is a fairly complicated process, involving hexazecimal editing and decompiling a ROM image. The simplest thing you can do is to go to a service center (other that viewsonic's one or major service facilities) and ask them to do that for you.
