Perhaps if you could find a correct English ROM image for that model you could put that on a card and use a bootloader technique to flash the ROM. I've no idea how that's done, but it has been reported as being successful with some models, for some users. Seems risky. To my knowledge legitimate OEM update packages do not allow for region/language swapping. You'd need to use developer tools of the sort which are not available to end users.

Hi,
Officially HP would have to flash the 6300 for you. I suggest that you contact HP support for assistance.

As I said, I do not know how it is done, nor even whether it can be done with this model. Further, it is not legal to distribute WM ROM images among end users; only HP could legally provide this.
