    Change CSC from KOR to XEU

    My friend got his Samsung galaxy s from a phone shop in the UK and it came with Android 2.2.1 preinstalled...it was not branded in any way.

    However, he told me that he couldn't get an update to 2.3.3 (JVO) through Kies, even though I could - we were both running JPY at the time.

    Today he told me he still couldn't get the update so I asked him to write down his IMEI number and then on his dialpad type in *#272IMEI# and it came up with his CSC being set to KOR (even though it should be XEU?).

    I asked him whether he could choose a different option and he said he had about 5 different ones available including XEU. I told him not to change it and install XEU because I wasn't sure if it would impact his phone in any way.

    He told me he had already backed up his phone when he heard about the gingerbread update and he was prepared to change it.

    Just want to ask you guys, if he did change from KOR to XEU, and installed it and rebooted his phone - is this safe??

    My friend really wants to update to JVO and this is the only thing holding up the update.

    So guys, what's your opinion? Let me know as soon as you can.

    Thanks!

    Changing CSC

    Hi there if your friend changes csc this will have the affect of wiping his phone, so as long as he had it all backed up this should be ok. What had he used to back this up? I would recommend Titanium back up, but his phone would need to be rooted.

    I think he used Kies? But if he was to change from KOR>XEU, he would take the following steps:
    go to CSC menu > click on XEU > INSTALL > REBOOT

    Is that correct?? Thanks.

    Hi

    Yes that is correct but as stated that will have the affect of a factory reset so all settings and programs will go. But as mentioned if all backed up then he should be fine, it is a perfectly plausible option to change the csc code

    That's great, thanks for responding. Will tell him to make sure that he has backed up everything as necessary.

    Cheers for making this clear!

    just want to make a correction: it should be dialpad type in *#272*IMEI#

    thank you for posting this. it is a great help.
