Default [Q] Change Nordic 2.1 build.prop possible?

I'm currently running 2.1 Nordic on X10 mini pro. When my country's (SG) version 2.1 is out, is it possible to just change the build.prop in current Nordic version to SG and re-flash via SEUS?

Is there any other thing i should be aware of before i try that?

Thanx in advance.

****, because that's what i wanted to do when the german 2.1 is out. so, if that isn't possible, what do we do then?

edit: i read so much stuff on here the last days, what i'm going to try is de/reinstall SEUS after that, at least move or rename the /db/ folder.

You can flash back to 1.6, root, change build.prop and update again via seus.

I stand corrected. you canīt downgrade to 1.6, but can switch to another version of 2.1 via editing build.prop

It is a good idea to reinstall seus, and delete all directories of Sony Ericssson before making any drastic changes.

Yeh u can just delete the settings db and temp folders instead of reinstalling seus I think. Something like that anyway, don't remember the exact folders

For 1.6, all we need to do was change the country/product in build.prop and just update via seus. So i'm assuming the same applies to 2.1 as well, unless I'm wrong.

PS: U can't downgrade to 1.6 via SEUS but u can flash to 1.6 via flashtool.

Apparently when you tell PC Companion to Repair, it will obey whatever is in build.prop regardless of the current firmware, thus allowing you to shuttle between different 2.1 firmwares.

Allegedly, anyway. I haven't test this myself.
