Android uses ICU and CLDR, and my Android 5.1.1 phone is not broken. If I change
my phone’s Language to “Português (Brasil)”, and set time zones manually, it
lists that time zone as “Horário Padrão de Brasília”.
Perhaps the user’s phone has an older or manufacturer-modified Android version.
Or perhaps the user’s phone language is “Português (Portugal)”; in that language
the time zone is listed as “São Paulo” on my phone, which is arguably not the
best choice. If so, the workaround is obvious: switch to Brazilian Portuguese.
This is all outside the scope of the tzdata project. It’s possibly a CLDR
problem. Marcio, please see <http://site.icu-project.org/bugs> and
