PDA Language Change

Hello, I hope somebody can help me..

I have a PDA that was purchased in another country (Portugual)  but now that I have relocated; I now would like the OS language to be in English.

This is an Dell Axim x51 using Windows Mobile 5.0.

Any ideas what i need to do this?

Thanks

You need to update your little friend to latest English ROM image.

You can download it from Dell website:

http://support.euro.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=uk&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R114959&SystemID=PDA_AXIM_X51&os=PPM&osl=en&deviceid=7643&devlib=0&typecnt=1&vercnt=2&formatcnt=1&libid=7&fileid=151479

But be very careful! This update only for Dell Axim X51V 624Mhz.
Backup all your data and read all instructions before you start

Good luck!

The instructions are the same. For dell you just run the update for the model and it Rewrites the ROM

One of the problems is that I cannot find the Portuguese image file on the pda nor anywhere else (web).  Any ideas?

Just follow the steps I posted in my first answer. I have recently updated friend's X51V to English - no problems. Forget about Portugese ROM image - you dont need it.
