    Hi, maybe i found place, where is info about language stored, so you can try to create folder with localization, mod this file and reboot - you will see...
    /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist
    It's again binary plist file.
    warning - .files are usualy not visible on Unix OSes, like Mac OS X - i can't see this file in Finder, but it's there (and i can modify it with plist editor)
    I don't have iPhone at hand, i found this file on system restore image. I hope that it will work.

    can't make it. need to find the place to change whole language setting. perhaps will need to get more idea form OS X.

    Hi MaLer,

    you were saying to create the folder under os x and get the file from there? since I can't find this file on iPhone. I will make a test now. finger crossed it's working. And Thanks.

    jerrylee: i can't say you, if it's REALY there, but it should, because it's on restore image. And if you can't see it - maybe it's hidden because of unix file system, unfortunately i can't say this for sure. But try to find help from someone with iPhone before creating this file there.

    Sorry, i can't help you more

    MaLer!!! You are the MAN!!

    just made another test with .GlobalPreferences.plist, and this time I changed the order of AppleLanguage. replaced en with zh-TW in first place.

    Reboot & Boom!! it's there.
    so that means we can put other languages into it and without touch original system.
    Appreciate for the advice, Maler!!

    Pendalf,
    Yes, you can also add other languages into and change the language setting.
    too bad, I have no idea about programing, can't help with tools.
    I will make another try on German to see what will it happen.

    This is really cool. If iPhone can't find the zh-TW folder, it will switch back english. Am I right, jerry?

    That's correct, Glen.tw.
    if system can't find folder zh_TW, it will reads strings from English.lproj. ^^

    Hi fedorr,

    First, you need a tool to convert binary format of these file to text/ascii ones. Try this. Then you need a editor to edit it. Notepad might not be a good one. I am using UltraEdit here.

    Can you simply put the ASCII files back on the phone, or do you have to do another conversion?
