Dear GT-I9100G community :D
This is a safe way To switch between Chinese I9100G & international I9100G

NOTE:THIS Method work for u if u want to install Stock Roms ... So if u want AOSP / AKOP / ROOTBOX .. ROMS u Don't Need this !!
Warning :This TUTORIAL Is FOR I9100G. WILL NOT WORK ON OTHER DEVICES. I DON'T TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY IF YOU MESS UP AND BRICK YOUR DEVICE OR ANYTHING ELSE. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.


INSTRUCTIONS
First Do a Full Wipe From Recovery (Cache .. Data ..etc)
- Then Remove the battery and connect your i9100g with a USB cable !
- Manual Load Driver for OMAP4430 From usb_drv_windows folder (included in download content )
- if the device keep reconnecting automatically... then it's okey it's not a problem !
- If everything is okey then run omap4430hs_espresso_Inter i9100g.bat
- if it's done should take like 7s ... remove your i9100g from usb cable... boot into Download Mod You should be able to read ur Product Name... if it's I9100G_CHN_CHN then u didn't do like i say if u found Product name I9100G then Congratulation :)
- So If Product Name is i9100g Flash Any Stock ROM u want not Chinese Stock ROMS.
- when u finish flashing a stock rom make a full wipe again ( data ; cache ).
- Reboot
-DONE
- If u got Inter I9100g or u want back your Chinese Stock ROMS Do the same but run this omap4430hs_espresso_Chines i9100g.bat

Thank you for your discovery. I have a Chinese I9100G myself, but I have no need for this at the moment as there are advantages to having a Chinese bootloader IMO. I will keep this for future reference though.

Dies this mean chinese version has better roms than what international g has right now?

great job dude ! it's nice for the people with chinese bootloaders to have this option.
and it's good for us too so that we can try the chinese rom leaks :) .cuz,they are fast on relaeasing ROMs lol

I compared this: This is from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1701471 with yours but i did not find any changes. That omap4430hs_1200MHZ is the same, what did you changed to get international ?

The key here seems to be that OMAPFlash will bypass the restriction of not allowing a different bootloader to be flashed onto the device.

What's different about the 2 zips in the OP is that they feature different sbl.bin (Secondary bootloader) files from Chinese versions and international versions respectively, which can be successfully flashed with this tool and therefore, transform your device from Chinese to Intl. or vice versa.

    Thank you for the guide, successfully changed to Chinese Bootloader :)

    @greatbridge
    Manual Load Driver here means you have to manually install the drivers that are given in the download. When you plug in your device look at device manager it'll show a yellow triangle next to OMAP4430. You'll have to do this step quite fast as it connects and disconnects your phone , open up device manager. connect your phone. when OMAP4430 comes up right click and install driver
