The bit about switching to UK language, are the system apps localised? And is there a British English dictionary? (so colour instead of color, etc.)

I'm on 3.2 now and loving it - it's so much faster! Thanks for the instructions (though I updated on Linux and ended up having to compile fastboot myself...)
