Default R1 region codes: Differences? How to change it?

Since many people asked about that and still ask, maybe that would help everyone to sum up:

-What are the differences between the region codes?
-How to change the region code?

There are basically many different region codes: KR (Korea), US (USA), EU (Europe), FR (France), RU (Russia), CN (China), WA (West Asia) and still some others...

You can check the region code in settings>system>about

Samsung R1

-No PC connection setting: MSC(=UMS) mode only
-No RDS but the R1 has in memory all FM stations available in Korea. Displays thus the station's name
-Lyrics feature
Adding lyrics requires EmoDio (Korean set up), the old Samsung Lyrics Station or Cowon LDB Manager. See the end of this post for more information
-No battery widget
-Korean subway map
-Eng-Kr Dictionary (to be downloaded)

-RDS support for the FM tuner

The R1 displays the station's name and potentially other informations (traffic, song's name, artist and genre) in countries where this feature is available
-PC connection setting: MSC(=UMS) or MTP.

Same as the EU code but with max volume limited (5mW/ch instead of 20mW/ch)

Same as the EU region code but there is no RDS

Same as the EU region code but no MTP PC connection mode available

Same as the KR region code but both the battery widget and lyrics are working, the dictionary and subway icon do not display on the default UCI

So how to change the region code?
You just have to put a config.dat file at the root of the R1.
Put this one for EU or this one for KR.
If you read carrefully above, you should have understood that the other region codes (except CN) are useless. But if you really want another region code though, you can either download all region codes in attachment or make your own config.dat file containing:
Just replace XX XX XXX by:
etc etc
