To set the default regional format: The OEM must edit the BootLocale section of the OEMInput.xml file before building the device image.

The following example demonstrates how to set the default regional format to Japan (ja-JP) in the OEMInput.xml file.

  <SupportedLanguages>
    <UserInterface>
      <Language>en-US</Language>
      <Language>ja-JP</Language>
      <Language>nl-NL</Language>
    </UserInterface>
    <Keyboard>
      <Language>en-US</Language>
    </Keyboard>
    <Speech>
      <Language>en-US</Language>
    </Speech>
  </SupportedLanguages>
  <BootUILanguage>ja-JP</BootUILanguage>
  <BootLocale>ja-JP</BootLocale>

Testing steps:

  1. Flash the build containing this customization to a device.

  2. During initial device setup, do not change the device language.

  3. Go to the Region screen in Settings > Time & language.

  4. Look at the Country/Region field to verify that the country or region is set according to the value you specified in the OEMInput.xml file.
