Not any more I'm afraid. I've had a long dialogue with the Moderator on Sammobile who confirms that on a multi csc ROM like BTU there is no way to change the default csc. 

A csc and ROM mismatch will work fine but there won't be OTA updates.

I can confirm, Neilm's statement. I have a mismatch to get a generic (non-Voda) ROM and it doesn't get OTA updates.

Ouch, not good there. I'm very glad I'm SIM free at this point!

It isn't as simple as SIM free or not- it depends on the source for SIM free models.

Those supplied direct or via Samsung's sales channel have the BTU range ROMs but SIM free models via other resellers have the XEU range. 

So sellers like Clove or Mobile Fun probably have access to the direct channel and are on fast updates but those supplied by CPW etc, even though SIM free might be on the slow channel shared with operator supplied phones.

Very confusing and is hacking a lot of people off!

Ooh right a real dogs breakfast in that case. Mid holiday bad head at the moment but pretty sure I got mine directly from Samsung.
