    Hardmac is just an English translation of a French rumor site, Macbidouille. I think it might even be machine translated (e.g. Babel Fish or the like).

    Right. Here's the original MB article also:

    http://www.macbidouille.com/news/2009-01-20/#17808

    The article suggests that you can also just SSH onto the phone and change the appropriate dynamic library text file (they list the one for French; most of us would change the one for English -- EN -- and our locale, in the same location). You could, in principle, download this file to your computer, I think, and add a large custom library to it.
