Hello
I did a short tutorial on how to change csc on Gear S3 R760. (possible to work with other Gear S3 models)
I'm not an English speaker, so excuse my mistakes.
I'm not a developer, and this tutorial is not my merit. I found the informations here and here.

Do this at your own risk, I do not take any responsibility.

thanks to @adfree

I tested this tutorial in my Gear S3 Frontier R760, Tizen 3.0.0.2, Rom R760XXU2CRC3

I do not know if this tutorial works in any version of firmware but you can try.


1)Go to settings/about gear/ and activate "Debugging"

2)Go to settings/connetion/Wi-Fi/ and set to "always on" then connect to your preferred network.

3)Go to settings/connetion/Wi-Fi/Wi-Fi networks/your connected network/ and scroll down until
you find "IP Address" and save somewhere that address.

4) Download to your Desktop "sdb tool" from here and extract the arhive SDBstarterKidv1.zip,
in the extracted folder you will find more archives.
You have to extract sdb_2.2.60_windows-64.zip if you are using 64 bit Windows or sdb_2.2.60_windows-32.zip
if you are using 32 bit Windows. I will use in this tutorial the version for 64 bit Windows.

5)Navigate to: C:\Users\EMP83\Desktop\SDBstarterKidv1\sdb_2.2.60_ windows-64\data\tools
and launch the command prompt here.

6)Enter 1 by 1 the following commands:

6a)
HTML Code:
sdb shell
after this command you will be prompted by windows firewall and you have to hit "Allow"

6b)
HTML Code:
sdb connect 192.168.1.73:26101
change 192.168.1.73 with ip address from your watch (the one you saved earlier from Wi-Fi settings).

after this command you will be prompted in your watch to allow a RSA Authorization Key( you must allow it)

6c)
HTML Code:
sdb shell
6d)
HTML Code:
launch_app csc-manager.csc-pre-configuration
after this command a list with all available csc should apear in your watch. Select the one that you whant.
I changed from United Emirates Arab CSC to France CSC.
after this step all your data will be deleted and the device reset to factory settings.

Command works fine for R765A... but lose your hope... it only shows ATT.

Thanks anyway... if we could at least inject other CSC codes...

Sorry, I don't understand.....
I can only find
SDBstarterKidv1.zip
DebuggingANDfindIP.7z
SDBconnectRTLv1.7z

But there is no file called "SDB tool" or something like that.... --> Do you mean SDBstarterKidv1.zip ? (and the sdb_2.2.60_windows-64.zip inside ?)

EDIT :
I have understand what happened for me. ...
I had no connection because of the windows firewall and not a missing "SDB tool" file or something else.

It works now, I had change my CSC without problem

@yan74s

You are able to unpack archiv files?

Unzip or unpack?
With 7Zip for instance... if you are Windows user...


Depend on your OS... if you want 64 bit or 32 bit sdb.exe...

If you search harder... you will find sdb.exe
Code:
sdb.exe
Best Regards

Thanks for your help, It was my firewall that gave me errors, and I though I need something called "SDB tool" to get the connexion.
(Even answering "yes" to the firewall didn't give me the connexion, I had to disable It)
