When I follow your video I don't see Русский in the list of languages. I have tried: I followed your instructions. I think it was caused by: Something is missing in your instructions - on my list of languages there are only 7 languages - NO Russian

Did Android OS have the Russian language on all type devices?
I'm planning to buy a New RCA 11 Maven Pro Tablet 2 in 1 Android 5.0 and not sure about the option to switch to the Russian language
These languages are installed based on Regions of sale. Before you purchase, ask them to check the system language options for Russian.
What do you mean by root of my C drive on my Computer? Just into C drive or in specific folders?
I don't understand what you mean by "Extract the ADB Folder into the root of your C drive." Do I just put it into my C drive? Or into a specific folder?
Root means into C:\ directly and not into any folder.
Possibility to change everything in the phone from Hungarian to English?
Bought a brand new Samsung S8 64 GB from Amazon and when I switched on the phone everything was in Hungarian. Is it possible to have everything on the phone in English? When I mean everything I mean everything
