Steps to install ProductCode of ur choice-
My original product code was ProductCode: GT-S8500BAAFOP.
When I installed the S8500XXJID_Flash Full, and chose XEU in preconfiguration setting,
my product code was changed to GT-S8500BAAXEU in registry.
I tried to revert back to my original GT-S8500BAAFOP by installing all available
full firmwares, starting with S8500XXJF1 to S8500XXJH3 (using OXC CSC) but the registry
still showed my product code as GT-S8500BAAXEU.
At last I found the solution. And with this method, you can freely now choose the product code you
want for your phone. Just follow the steps below:
1. Install S8500XXJID_Full with the CSC file that contains the product code of your choice
(Example 1: OXA for SKT, XEO, XEF. XEU, ITV, DBT (Germany, France,UK, Italy, etc
2: OXC for FOP, THP, EUR (Spain, Portugal, Greece, etc)
3. etc, etc.
2. After installation, hard reset phone. Then go to admin mode => preconfiguration => and
install the CSC of your choice. Whichever you install will now be your product code.
Connect phone to KIES and check your windows registry.
NOTE: If you install S8500XXJID_Full with the default CSC file (in example 1 above) it's all easy.
But if you install with any other CSC file, phone will normally reboot constantly if you try to go
into MENU and setting. Don't worry, just install, hard reset, then enter admin mode to install your preferred CSC.
Once done, your product code will now be that of the CSC you have installed.
You can now put off phone, and flash your phone with that country's firmware and update to latest firmware via KIES.
OBSERVATION: I have tried this experiment with 2 XX phones and it worked perfectly for me.
Others should try and give feedback.
ADVANTAGES: If you have, for example, product code GT-S8500BAAFOP (Spain) with latest firmware as JH1.
And in Gemany, for eample, KIES has newer firmware, say JH7.
You can easily change your product code to GT-S8500BAADBT and upgrade via KIES.

Whether it is ok to flash the european software onto your phone I honestly don't know. That is a risk you will have to think about.

It has to do with changing some registry entries. Google it. That way you can change your FW officially, without using multiloader.
