    Well you cant buy paid market apps .That said I have been running european firmware for long time in India with no hassles till the old Indian firmware was uploaded.Of course if anything does happen to your phone I am not responsible.
    EDIT : If mini uses four file flash and if your original firmware is listed .
    Download both firmwares .Uses CSC of Asian firmware and pda,phone,boot of gingerbread .Win-Win for everyone.Thats what I did after my firmware was listed.

    I've flashed the European firmware from samfirmware.com. It works fine. UI has not changed a lot though. I think because it is still using touch wiz. You'll notice the status bar icons have changed though. But if any of you use Link2SD or a similar app, just take not that it will not work. The app will install fine but your phone will restart when it tries to mount the partition. That said, I flashed 2.2 back on my phone and will just wait for Link2SD to work on Gingerbread.

    The gingerbread on samfirmware is a leaked copy for european region. It's not available via KIES anywhere. Samsung will probably make the update available in a few days on KEIS. So finally it's your call if you can wait then wait for it to come on KIES if you can't download from samfirmware and flash.
