Now use xs++ or far manager to upload xy.lng and xy.t9 files from your computer to tpa/preset/system/language in phone.

Also in tpa/preset/system/language in phone delete the setting File “allowed Languages ” or delete the lng.dat file. Just find out the file in which you think the settings are stored and delete it. The file is mostly named as lng.dat or allowed languages.

Then upload the customize.xml that you created to tpa\preset\custom\**here**

Restart phone. Backup Contact and Do Master Reset ! New language will be added
