let's say you wanna update your phone without wiping the data u have on it. you use the home csc. If u have custom recovery and custom rom and you wanna go back to stock firmware you flash the csc file.

But what's the difference between CSC and HOME_CSC?

Didn't he already answer that question?
Home_CSC: Flash the firmware without wiping the data (if you just want to update the ROM)
CSC: Flash the firmware along with a complete wipe including data (mostly used in cases like bricked phones or Go-Back-To-Stock situations)

I always backup data and do a clean install with CSC ! Its recommended.

When I wanted to swap the firmware from (V) Verizon to (U) Unlocked, I had to use CSC simple, the Home_CSC gave an error. So I assumed the existing data cannot be "saved" when firmware are of different types.
I have asked about this and I wasn't that lucky to get an answer, so I just tried it (trial and error).
However, I think the data wipe is just a side-effect, not the purpose of CSC. Changing the CSC will always wipe data, including any custom software from the previous carrier:
https://productioncommunity.publicm...ung-Phone-Info/m-p/53208/highlight/true#M6228

In my case the original Home_CSC, had only VZW (Verizon) code available. The new unlocked firmware brought in 15 different CSC codes that can be applied when a SIM from one of those providers is introduced in the phone. Phone INFO shows those codes.

@NaJeEb303 He did answer, but he didn't make it clear. Only after knowing the answer I can understand what he meant. So thanks to you for clarifying.

Brother when you are flashing firmware with same csc as your previous firmware then you can use Home_csc and if you are flashing different csc firmware then you have to use file which starts with csc. You will lose data when not using home_csc because it contains different partition information and flashing this will delete you previous partition resulting loss of data but a successful flashing if you are stuck with home_csc. Hope you got your answer.

Hey all,

i just used Odin3-v3.13.1 to upgrade from:
G935FXXU2EREM - GALAXY S7 EDGE SM-G935F DBT GERMANY

to:
G935FXXU2ERG2 - GALAXY S7 EDGE SM-G935F DBT GERMANY

First i selected all AP, BL, CP and HOME_CSC and started flasching. At the very last step (think it was the csc part) it failed.

The Phone said i thould have to use SmartSwitch to get Recovery. So i just opened odin again and just selected AP, BL and CP no csc this time.

That worked. Phone booted, did a bit upgrading and optimizing and now iam on 01.July upgraded. All fine!

But now iam really confused about csc in general.. what is it doing? And is it safe to just leave any csc file empty in odin when doing an upgrade?

How to modify CSC to prevent wipe of my files?

Hello!
How to wipe android OS, but keep my files, like documents, pictures, audio and video in SAMSUNG SM-N9005 memory? 'Android system' package was disabled in 'packagedisabler pro', and now SM-N9005 sticks during booting with animated SAMSUNG logo. Flashing with HOME firmware does not recover because it does not enable 'Android system' package.

I was answered this on Reddit

I started a thread on Reddit about how to get OTA after stock ROM flash, and the guy said that if I used the CSC file in the CSC field in Odin, I should still get OTA, so I guess it just means you would get OTAs on it. I think it depends on other factors such as build number and others too though, so I would research first.
