Uninstall ME and install XP. Can use 2 Different languages of an operating system. Wont allow for an upgrade or such unless it ame language. Only option is to install only XP fresh.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

I do care about data, yes. it doesn't seem to be possible to switch languages. when I run the compatibility test beforehand, I get a message that says upgrade cannot be done becuz of different languages. are you saying I can choose languages when I do a clean install?
