The serial of my T63 is T63AH1606XXXXX, so it's a pre-Dec'16 production and is T63-TC1 apparently.

1) For the backup, I don't have an access to a Windows computer but I'm pretty handy with Linux and command line. Can you link to a thread explaining how can I back up (and restore) the partitions thru ADB/fastboot?

2) Finally, is there an English-capable firmware available for my model of T63? Because if there isn't, why would I need to back up all partitions?

Thanks!
Regarding 1) (Backup)
Look at this, Backup all Partitions (important):
https://www.cnx-software.com/2013/11...ware-in-linux/

2) There are several English images of the system partition, which you could try, but not before having a backup of all the partitions. I did it without a backup and now I'm stuck with a bricked reader and no access to backups to reactivate the thing, desperately hoping to find a kind donor of a backup.
(T63, 1024x758 Display)

Edit:
Be sure to get a copy of the parameter file too, how is explained here:

Sadly, I didn't find any for T63-TC1 from the cursory look at the forum. Anyone can point me to a valid link to a compatible **english** system partition which would be newer than Boyue version 1.0?

Also, PMed you about partition backups. Can you get your device to boot bootloader?

Big news for T63 owners (the 300dpi one, 1448x1072 resolution), this image has the Likebook T63S version 2.0.0 which can be flashed on the older T63 devices: https://yadi.sk/d/uwTXZWIAM4fvXA. Supports lots of European languages.

Google Services (and Play Store) are installed, but not accessible thru the default launcher, I've sideloaded Nova to get access to them.

I have it working on mine. I have been told that there're different hardware revisions, so YMMV. Make a backup of everything first.
