Newsletter 0.4 - customize a part of newsletter subscription form

I try to have a subscription form on all my pages. So i add this function in my Page_Controller in Page.php (and i use it in my template) :

function NewsletterSubscribeForm($newsletterTitle){
   $subscribeForm = DataObject::get_one('SubscribeForm', "`Title`='$newsletterTitle'");

   if($subscribeForm) {
         $locale = Translatable::get_current_locale();
         $subscribeForm = $subscribeForm->getTranslation($locale);

      $formController = new SubscribeForm_Controller($subscribeForm);

      return $formController->Form()->renderWith('MyNewsletterSubscribeForm', 'Form');

   return false;

It's OK, it works.

But I have only one newsletter and i don't want to select a newsletter in the list... I would like to default checked this newsletter. I try to add this code juste before the return in my function :

// I get the source to have the keys
$source = $formController->Form()->Fields()->fieldByName('Newsletters')->getSource();
$values = array();

// I create an array "values" with source keys and values set to 1 (to have HTML 'checked="checked"' when the form will render)
foreach($source as $index => $item) {
   if ( is_a($item, 'DataObject') ) $key = $item->ID;
   else $key = $index;

   $values[$key] = 1;

// I set Value for this CheckboxSetField

But it doesn't work :'(
