@EurekaLabs Just to be sure, we may send out another survey to get better answers to this topic. Don't get anxious - we'll do it soon, but not today, and we'll do it in an effort to get everything to work correctly.
I want to be sure teams and XPRIZE both understand what's being requested. Some teams have asked us to ensure nothing happens to the tablets before the judges turn them on, to ensure the full first-boot experience is available to the judges. We obviously can't do that if we are expected to change the language setting before the judges get the tablets. And it's possible that a team has hidden or disabled that setting so it can't be changed.
We want teams to understand just what we will do if that's requested. And we can't have custom requests for each team; remember that we're dealing with hundreds of tablets, so the choices are likely to be (a) set the appropriate language or (b) do nothing. It may be better to ask the judges to make any change themselves.
