Default Project Discovery -- NEEDS YOU :)

Soo here it is, the project that will find the ultimate firmware region code... maybe...probably not.
This is basically a volunteer based report for testing different firmware regions... there's a vague idea that Samsung may have a "master" region code used to test all features (Dictionary, RDS etc.) at once. Check it out for more details, hope you participate

YP-P2 size/color:4 GB/ Wine Red

Region code tested: AF
after downgrade: it said US
after upgrade: it said US

Firmware version: before upgrade: 1.15
after upgrading: 5.10

Features:

Everything still seems to be the same

--EDIT--
I tested CA too, same way as AF, same results, I kind of see a pattern, Im on CS now, and do I have to upgrade back to 5.10? dsnt seem like it'll make a difference, you think they'll change the region with every new release?

--EDIT TWO--
I tried CN, that actually changed something, as in, now it doesn't show US, other than that, the features and everything still seem the same as before

--EDIT THREE--
My list of tried fw, that also didnt affect anything
(you think any of the extra folders can become useful? service, system, mypack, etc.)
AF (X)
CA(X)
CS(X)
CN(X)
BB(X) (only added the Rhapsody Channel, and replaced the file browser)
DA(X) (after using BB and tryin to switch to this one, I had to format, cause I thought region got stuck, this is also a non-working/non-existent region)
DE (la)
EL
EN (la)
ES (la)
ET
FA

Do you think that you could fill out the form (seems like more than one) on the site and email it like the instructions say? For each region you tried? It's not too clear what codes have what features here. Thanks for participating .

well, what Im saying, is there seems to be no difference what firmware version it is, shouldn't the 'master region' still work with older firmware? and also, whats X'd on the list is what I've tried, and all remains the same, as in nothing changed, exept for the fact that some of the regions like KR and US etc, can have their own features, like KR has dictionary, which we should all obviously know, do I have to email it? I rather not, Id rather keep one list I can edit at any time

Not all region-specific features were implemented in the fist release of the firmware, so to catch all features, upgrading to 5.10+ is necessary.

well, do we have to do the obvious regions? can those be taken off the list? cause we already know what they do, or are all these real regions that are already there that we know? *dizzy* im confusing my self

The obvious ones are intended for users who are currently using those firmwares... just so we can have a complete selection.
