Prompt Upgrading via Kies...is there a way???

Hi guys.

I was wondering if there is a way we can trick Kies to recognize the phone (S2 plus NFC) that it belongs to a country that has already received the official Android 4.2. I ask this because for Romania has not yet given update to 4.2 and I do not want to use any Odin. Also, if you can fool Kies it is possible to lose your phone warranty?

If we fool Kies it is possible to return to the basic android?

Thx Adisan...its quite easy to change CSC as i seen in videos....but the million dollar question is...DO I LOSE WARRANTY? And also by reverting back to original CSC i get the official update for Romania (if there is any :P )

For warranty I think you need install original stock firmware you had when you've bought phone (for Vodafone I don't think you have one on Sammobile..)
If it will be an official update for Romania (Vodafone), you can install it via Odin from Sammobile firmware list. CSC will be modified to the stock's one.

So if i change, for ex,to Spain CSC, and upgrade to official spanish 4.2 i will lose warranty? And to get back warranty i just need to get back to COA csc (because my phone has COA)?
Sorry i'm such a pain but i really dont wanna lose warranty by changing CSC!!!
