No as of now you can't go back or change the CSC code again using this method this code works only once in a device.
But this is not permanent we can change it as of now we don't have the combination files once the combination files are available we can change it to any region and multiple times.
have anyone found out the solution to go back or a solution to get updates?
I've successfully switched to region, but now am stuck with no OTA Updates

When will we get these combination files?

Only as info.

Meawhile confirmed by more then me userS...

It is possible to change active CSC
WITHOUT Root
WITHOUT Combination Firmware
WITHOUT soldered wires... aka USB cable

Latest confirmed Firmware Version is GVK6 (SM-R875F) LTE

So IMHO GVK7 should also work...

You can go in every direction you want... more then 1 time... you can test every CSC inside your Firmware...

It is based on this Exploit trick to bring system user... system shell...

No idea how long Samsung need to fix this... I think not so fast with AWA3 Firmware...

If you are able to use ADB... then IMHO not impossible...

Its not perfect How to... but tiny beginning...


If I can help... then I will try to help...

Only as info...

Should work also on GW5 including AWA3 Firmware Version...

Best Regards

    I just purchased a Galaxy Watch 4 in my country (Israel) and when setting it up I found out that it is a grey import with the country list being limited to a small group of Mid-South American Spanish speaking countries (Cuba, Colombia, Guatemala, etc.).

    I understand this affects my ability to use Samsung Pay in my country. Would the region lock affect anything else in addition to this?
    Also, Would it be possible to somehow change the region of the watch?

    I changed my country on my non LTE version Samsung Watch 4 Classic .

    This is what I did ( using the tools provided on this forum) :

    I first followed the steps in this video ( I had to do this in order for my BP & ECG to work) - https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...estriction-removed-19th-january-2022.4322527/

    Then followed the steps below to change country ( worked 100%) :

    Steps on phone :
    • open Samsung Health app
    • click on the "3 dots" in right hand top corner
    • click on "settings"
    • click on " about Samsung health"
    • click on "set features"
    • click on "common"
    • change "CSC Country code" to (whatever you want)
    • close
    • Force STOP "Samsung Health app" - via phone settings / Apps
    • reopen "Samsung Health app"
    • country changed

    Hello. can you describe step by step what to do after you enter the code
    Sure
    Note* This method can be done if it is LTE varient
    Step 1: your watch dial pad enter the following
    *#272*IMEI# ( enter IMEI number of your watch)

    Step 2 : Select the region code or Russia (SER)
    And select the option install (the watch will reset and reboot automatically)

    Step 3 : pair with Mobile again and install the samsung pay plugin in your mobile

    Step 4: open samsung pay in your watch and follow the steps it will prompt to mobile to add the card

    I'm in India after doing these steps even LTE works fine and I get samsung pay too

    I have attached the samsung pay watch plug-in for the mobile
