Here it also works with

,---- myjadetex.ini
| \let\savedump\dump
| \let\dump\relax
| \input latex.ini
| \let\dump\savedump
| \input jadetex.ltx
| \dump
| \endinput

,---- from fmtutil.cnf
| myjadetex	pdfetex	language.dat	translate-file=cp227.tcx *myjadetex.ini

Well, but the place where format creation failed on Norbert's system was
after loading


So I also installed texlive-lang-cyrillic, but still I can create
jadetex.fmt and myjadetex.fmt.  I think something's amiss on your
