I don't know. I'm surprised to hear that the A100 intended for the Japanese market doesn't allow for language selection, and I don't know if the same thing would apply to the A700 or not.

Sometimes firmware files are identical between regions and sometimes, they're not, depending on the model. You'd probably need to download them and compare them to find out using a utility like WinDiff designed for that purpose.

If you look at this thread, it appears that there is a one byte difference in the header controlling the region if you compare A100 firmware, based on the last post I see from lunarHonour
