    Stuck with Chinese Market

    Hi there,

    New to the forum and new to the world of Android. Very happy with my pad but as an expat living in Shanghai I have purchase a model that has a chinese version (including chinese language) of the Market app installed. is there a way that I can install the english UK/US version?

    Any help very much appreciated

    Did you have any luck getting the English Market working on your transformer? I am in China and am wanting to buy the transformer. I see that there is a 3.1 English update floating around the internet. I assume that this would work, but I keep getting dead links

    Though I live in Finland, I ordered my TF from Hong Kong.
    When you first boot your TF, you'll have to do the setup. In my case, I chose English for language and keyboard,
    but Finnish for regional settings. My market is in english, as well as everything else, just like I wanted it to be.
    Also, everything related to my location works perfectly; The clock is on the right timezone, GPS location acts as it should, etc.
    So I'm guessing you could try resetting to factory defaults and do the system setup again.
    IF you don't wanna do that, you could use another market place, such as applanet or something corresponding.

    I think the hk model is different. Can you please check the `about tablet` settings. Mine has CN. Others are US and WW. I just brought mine today so i am going to make sure every thing is working properly before trying anything
    My android phone is from hk and has the market but my wives is from China and doesnt. If i was smart i should have got my tablet from hk too :-)

    My understanding is that you cannot flash your tablet with another region firmware.
    ie if you bought your model from China, you cannot flash it with a US or WW kernel.

    More info on this at the ASUS website - check for the file called WW SKU_Firmware Update SOP

    Maybe some of the rooting experts could comment on whether rooting allows this. (rooting is a process where you gain complete control admin over the device, which of course also includes the opportunity to totally screw it up).

    I have read that if your device then you call install the google account and market. If i can't put another rom in it hopefully the other method will work
