    vs2 figured it out HERE.

    I confirm it works fine. I switiched my T-mobile USA firmware to the Videotron Canadian one as I wanted French and not Spanish as my 2nd language.

    From vs2:
    Try it without the master clear at the end. I am unlocked and rooted. When I did the master clear it wiped my unlocked status away; I had to re-enter my unlock code. When I tried it without the Master Clear, all of my installed apps STAYED!


    You can download the various .update files from the Garmin site: Garmin-Asus - Connect. Communicate. Navigate. Just click on the world map in the top right corner and select one.

    This is not a custom ROM, but at least it's a change from the usual.

    Some of the Garmin updates for different countries come as an .exe file. You can extract the .update from that with winrar manually.


    Run the .exe file which will connect to the phone, download the latest .update file and put it into the /Garmin/Update file. It will try to launch the updater and fail when the version check occurs. Just cut/paste that .update to the SD card mentioned above by vS2 and follow the process as he described. It works fine.
