    B"H I managed to restore my Lumia 520 to 8.1 latest stable release, using Lumia Software Recovry Tool) but apparently I lost my original language's firmware since I can't change back to Hebrew interface (I know, language>add language<hebrew. Gives me the word "Hebrew", not anything else. The hebrew keyboard is already there)
    Is there a way to use LSRT to get the original firmware?
    Thanks

    Did you already check for "phone updates" it is possible that you need to download some language files.

    Thanks but it's not it. I think the variant has changed after the WP10 technical preview upgrade and then rollback. When I opened the language settings, I got UK English and Persian. Seems like they think I'm Iranian or something.

    If that happened then it is a very strange glitch.
    Are you sure your 520 in a country variant Israel.
    To check this go to extras+info
    Check what your "Mobile operator" is.
    It should be 000-IS

    Is it possible that you bought it in a shop that may have had the Iranian Country Variant, but had set it up with Hebrew Language, Keyboard etc. before resale?

    So the 000-55 is a "Generic" Middle East Region...

    ...with no assigned Country Variant.

    Most likely it was set up with Hebrew either before Import or by the Israeli distributor or by the retailer you purchased from. They may even have flashed an Israeli ROM on to it. I have no way of knowing that from here.

    Myself I have a generic Latin America Region 1520 marked Operator 000-22. It comes preinstalled with Espanol (Mexico) Language and keyboard. If I use a recovery tool it reverts to that. The reversion to Persian (:D) is exactly the same for your Regional Variant. It returns to type designated by hardware which the Recovery Tool reads. The Recovery tool won't change your type, but if type was changed earlier, it will revert it to correct type.

    However, I have no issues installing alternate Languages or Keyboards on my 1520.

    Best case scenario : a Hard Reset or another run with Lumia Software Recovery Tool will restore your ability to download and designate as default your chosen display language and keyboard.

    Alternatively: Return to the retailer and see if they will flash an Israeli ROM.
