Changing the language

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.

How do I change the language in my Mio 168 pc, from italian to english ?

I had exactly this problem with my pocket PC Mio 168. but thank goodness, i could resolve it about 8 months ago.

you can't change the language of your pocket PC , I mean to say if you change some options or settings in your pocket PC. to resolve this problem you have to flash the Rom of your pocket PC with an other one witch contains the language you want. for example Rom with English language.

so, first you have to download the Rom and software witch it will help you to flash your actual Rom.

sorry for my english
