Well it would only update to SG versions. As for it detecting US apps in the Market I have no Idea.

Yes, right. I bought mine in us and brought it back in france. The system remains _US.
I remember a post where somebody told how is system gone from canadian to us...may be with a manual update.

Correct. Doesn't matter where you bought the hardware, once the rom is changed to another country, you can continue to load roms/updates from the same country moving forward.

In the majority of cases this will work, but if a hardware revision for your device is different than what the rom you are installing supports, there is a small chance you might lose some functionlity. Rare, but a small chance for this certainly.
