Hi All,

I would like to change the SW Revision and HW Revision to my own strings, is that possible ? where does the galaxy (Original ROM ) saves this data and print it to the screen when you type *#12580369# (SW & HW Info)

i just want it to display different values that would match other applications that verify this to do other stuff...
(I know that the device won't actually change by that)
thanks

following up im told the hw revision is coded to the board because of the boards revision number like computer parts makes me wonder if its changeable im sure it is but it wont actually reflect that.

Anything is changeable, you just have to know how to change it ;)
