If you want to know your Samsung Galaxy’s CSC region code, there are a few ways to do it.
The easiest way is to open the Settings app and go to General > About Device. Scroll down until you see the CSC region code listed under “Device information.”
Alternatively, you can open the dialer and enter *#1234#. This will bring up the phone’s software information, including the CSC region code.
How to change the GSC Code
If you want to change your Galaxy’s CSC region code, there are a few methods you can try.
Samsung Smart Switch App
The easiest way is to use the Samsung Smart Switch app. This app allows you to transfer data between devices, including your phone’s CSC region code.
Another way to change your Galaxy’s CSC region code is to use the Odin software tool. This tool allows you to flash firmware files on your device, and it also includes an option to change the CSC region code. However, using Odin can be risky and may damage your device if not used correctly.
Editing build.prop file
Finally, if you have root access on your Galaxy device, you can also change the CSC region code by editing the build.prop file. This file contains system properties and is located in the /system subfolder. It’s a good idea to make a backup of this file, as it can be used as an undo function if you change your mind later.
Go to Settings > About Device > Software Information and tap on Build Number 7 times until it says “You are now a Developer.” Go back and enter Developer Options.
Scroll down until you see “Root access” and set it to either “Apps and ADB” or “Apps only.” Exit Developer Options and enter the newly created option (in this case, Apps and ADB), find the root app of choice (we recommend Kingroot) and open it; we’ll be using Kingroot for this guide). Once opened, tap on “One Click Root” and wait for it to finish.
Once the device finishes rooting, tap on “Set up” then “Allow/Grant” when prompted with a Superuser Request. Go back one screen and you will see that your CSC has been successfully changed!
If you want to revert the changes, just follow these same steps but instead of tapping on “One Click Root” and “Set up,” tap on “Unroot.” This will restore your device to its original state.
How Do I change My CSC Code on Samsung Galaxy devices?
Samsung Galaxy devices contain a hidden menu that can be accessed by inputting a specific code. The code is *2767*CSC%code%, where %code% is the four-letter CSC region code for the country or region you want to activate.
So, for example, if you want to activate the Chinese language pack on your Samsung Galaxy S6, you would enter *2767*CSC_CHN into the phone’s dialer.
Can I Change My CSC Code?
Yes, it is possible to change your Samsung Galaxy’s CSC code. However, this should only be done by experienced users as it can cause problems with the phone’s software.
To change your CSC code, you need to access the hidden menu mentioned earlier and enter a new code into the field marked CSC Code. Be sure to carefully enter the correct code, as entering the wrong code can have serious consequences.
What Happens If I Don’t Change My CSC Code?
If you don’t change your Samsung Galaxy’s CSC code, it will default to the code for the country or region that the phone was originally purchased in. This may not be the desired outcome, as certain features (such as language packs and country-specific apps) may not be activated or may not work correctly.
Is It Safe to Change My CSC Code?
Changing your Samsung Galaxy’s CSC code can cause problems. If the CSC code is incorrect, it may not activate certain features on your phone.
However, if it is correct but doesn’t correspond to your specific country or region, you may find that some language packs are not activated or other issues arise.
As such, changing your CSC code carries some risk and should only be attempted by experienced users.
What is CscFeature_CorpRegionLock?
CscFeature_CorpRegionLock will allow you (on a Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note5) to change the CSC code of your device without any restrictions. That is, you can use any CSC code that is available, regardless of your location or country. This feature is not available on other Galaxy devices like Galaxy A20 or similar.
What Does “CscFeature_NoSimLock” Do?
This option (found on a Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note5) will remove the SIM lock from your device so that it can be used with any carrier. Keep in mind that this will also void your warranty.
Samsung Galaxy devices contain a hidden menu that can be accessed by inputting a specific code. This menu contains options that allow you to change your CSC code, which can activate certain features or change the language pack on your phone.
Changing your CSC code can cause problems, so it should only be attempted by experienced users. There is also a way to permanently change the region code of a Samsung Galaxy device without any restrictions.
This is not available on all devices and can cause problems, so it should only be attempted by experienced users as well.
