The software mod did not work at all. Then I initially cut the track leading from the resistor, without actually removing the resistor. This opened up the 1.2m band (220 Mhz, which was not available prior to cutting the track)but did not expand the other bands.

Later, I actually removed the resistor. This opened up the other bands, the 2 meter band now has a working bottom edge at 140 Mhz, everything (including ARS) works.

I suspect that the software mod would now also work, and I could change the country code as described in an earlier post, but I haven't bothered as there isn't anything in the 130 - 140 Mhz range I am currently interested in. If anyone has a similar experience and also tries changing the country code via the software mod I would be interested in hearing about the experience.
