These are instructions on how to patch the iPhone Region Format Settings to unlock all locales! Notice when you normally go to Settings:General:International:Region Format only a few countries are available. This patch will open the list to all countries!

This solution was created by timschuerewegen. We have only packaged it for your convenience. He deserves all the credit for it!

Before you start make sure you have BSD Subsystem Installed on your iPhone.

Also you will need to have added the iClarified Source if you don't have it already. To know how to do this follow this tutorial:

Step One
Launch Installer by pressing its icon on your SpringBoard.

Step Two
Press to select the Install tab at the bottom of the screen.

Step Three
Press to select iClarified from the list of Categories.

Step Four
Press to select Region Format Patch (1.1.3) from the list of Packages.

Step Five
Press to select the Install button at the top right of the screen.

Step Six
Press the large red Install button to begin the installation.

Step Seven
A Notice will appear telling you that this process will patch your Region Format Settings and to make sure you are on the 1.1.3 firmware. Press the large OK button.

Step Eight
Once the install has completed a Notice will appear telling you that Region Format is patched. Also you will have to restart your iPhone for the changes to take effect. Click the large OK button.

Step Nine
You will be returned to the Categories menu. Press the Home button to return to your springboard. Now hold down the Sleep/Wake button for 3 seconds to power off your iPhone. Drag the power slider that appears to the right.

After the iPhone turns off you may restart it and finally set your Region Format!

This solution was entirely developed by timschuerewegen. Please give him your thanks!
