If you want to set the timezone on your phone correctly, do the following:
- ipkg install tzdata
- ipkg install your desired tzdata-
* packages. For instance, I use “tzdata-australia“.
- Enable your desired timezone by symlinking it to “/etc/localtime“. Adjust the following example command line for your locality.
- ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Adelaide /etc/localtime
Note that this technique should work on any OpenEmbedded-based Linux distribution.
