Within a month getting problems with setting localtime. As far as I can
see there is a wrapper in /etc/timezone, where a timezone should be
written. Put there 'Europe/Moscow'(without quotes) and u have to restart
 to make changes to it.

It seems that symlinking /usr/share/zoneinfo/whateverzone to
/etc/localtime is dangerous as the FSO wrapper edits the file
/etc/localtime. So instead of restarting the phone u may just copy
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Moscow to /etc/localtime and check with
$(date) command that shows that tz has correctly changed to MSD.

But if u restart, soon after entering the PIN the timezone will fall
back to EET.

It always falls back to EET.
