Hi guys, has anyone flashed a Chinese version of a phone with a global ROM. I have a Vivo Nex Dual Display but everything is in Chinese. Just wondering if it was possible to flash a global ROM on there. I don't even know if the bootloader is unlocked etc becuase everything is in Chinese.

Can't you just change the language to English and region to the place you stay.
That ought to solve the problem.

One more thing. Do you know whether the hardware can access the bandwidth in your region?
Basically, inspite of software inhibitions. is the phone usable in your region.

To answer your question, I think that yes, as it is a chinese phone, you can install any Global ROM on it.
Just unlock the bootloader to install the ROM of your choice.
