Just go to "USB Recovery" (Programming -> Recovery) then select firmware you want to Download/Flash and you dont even have to change product code for this!
Make sure that you are not in "offline mode" then, choose "Find Online..." Select and newest APAC1 (variant name) var with your color code. -> Let the program download the Firmware and then press start!

Easy as a pie.

Ok, I've got two questions for anybody who can provie answers.

1. Can someone post a valid download link for Nokia Care Suite. Everywhere i've tried, the rapidshare links have expired.

2. Once I've successfully flashed my phone with a ROM, is it possible for me to restore my phone using a previous backup i've made from Zune.

And I have one question more: if I flash this 7.8 with these "unofficial methods" (Care Suite), can I after that update my phone officially with Zune, when Nokia and Microsoft releases updates in future?

nokia care suite with RM817 and is an older version : http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?2e2bal5g7hjs52j

and after flash you cannot restore to previous zune backup.

its not actually unofficial because you still using official nokia ROM and official Nokia Care Flash tools, and yes even after a flash you can update with zune for further updates

So is there any way to restore backup for a flashed rom, or the only way is to go back is to flash a lower version through NCS?

Thanks. Just flashed my lumia 800 to wp7.8. went smooth as butter.

Some observations (will keep updating with usage):

1. Zune is detecting the phone but in the device summary section, the memory bar (at the bottom of the page) is not showing anything. Content transfer is working fine.
