Hi!
Anyone knows how it is possible to enable native call recording on the 9860 model?
Maybe extract apk from another firmwire with enabled call recording?
Is there any way to enable it?

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately we can't use the "Thai SIM / reset" trick that worked wonders on my old Note 9.
Because it doesn't work on SM-N9860 (I'm very sad). Already tried several factory reset's with my Thai SIM and still no "call recording" feature...

Any alternatives "without root" (Yes, Idon't want to lose Knox / Banking apps / Netflix / etc)? For all purposes Addhell does all that I want/need, but without root, and no warranty loss ;).

Maybe by changing the CSC code? But so far all that I have read (not possible yet).
Regards,

FJorgeR.

Check post number 6. That works, because I'm using that one.and my phone is not rooted.

Hi android-incredible,

What do you mean?
Are you referring to :

Code:
inningsedefeat500	Link not working
But I can confirm Boldbeast works after rooting, and premium features is great with cloud sync etc

Because, it refers that "Works after rooting" and it uses a "non-integrated" extra app. Right?
I mean Boldbeast works more or less "has some issues" and the performance (caller audio "speaker" recording is rather poor).
I used it on my Note 9 with mix results and stopped working after Android 9/10 update.
But then I used the "Thai SIM/reset" trick (that does not work for the SM-N9860) and left it "Boldbeast" for good.
I will give it a try again, maybe it has Android 10 support now!

Nonetheless, we were all looking for the official "Samsung" app ;)

Thanks.
Regards,

FJorgeR.

I think Samkey can help after through CSC change they provide support for Note20 Ultra variants, currently no support for any N986x models ...
BTW : I asked them and replied they will provide support soon !.
Any one , have an idea which CSCs are supporting native Call Recorder ?

Call recorder and WiFi call

I also have the sm-n9860, very happy with it so far. Only issue is lack of call recording and lack of WiFi calling although I wonder if the latter is due to my carrier - anyone else have WiFi calling on sm-n9860?

I just checked the csc code for my sm-n9860 and it's BRI which I understand is Taiwan? Not Hong Kong? Any clarification?

Only way to enable the native call recording is to use CHC firmware.
So far it is running fine on my G9860, didn't face any problem with google apps, installed the google play store and google play services and every google service is running fine.
The only issue is the samsung pass is not supported and dual messenger for whatsapp/facebook/instagram is not supported but it is easily fixable by third party app.
All Chinese apps can be uninstalled directly.
Call recording is very important for me, and all the apps didn't work like it should. I was really disappointed to change this great phone for another but thanks for the CHC rom.

ACR works fine, app of Galaxy Store.
I don't understand how do you guys get it to work? Some reports it works and some doesn't. What is the trick? does it depend on the device itself?
I tried ACR from galaxy store, tried boldbeast, tried cube ACR. It will just record your voice, and the other side voice is very low and sometimes no sound at all. trying different settings without anticipated results.
so far the CHC rom working fine and I keep it till the next generation hoping the exynos 1000 will be on par with SD

    Not sure if this works on the Note20, but you could have a look at it: (For some reason won't let me post the link - hope that wasn't a violation of forum rules, but you can just Google 'Change CSC on Samsung Devices – Samsung CSC Codes')

    Successfully changed CSC from TGY to CHC and enabled Native Call Recording

    Guys have a great news! I have successfully changed the CSC to CHC from TGY on TGY rom. My steps:
    1. On latest TGY rom changed the CSC to CHC with SamKEY (got confirmation ok) after this step the Service provider still remained TGY/TGY,TGY/TGY and no call recording.
    2. Factory Reset your phone (remove any screen locks and google account)
    3. Flash CSC (not home_csc!) file from the latest CHC rom with odin.
    4. The phone reboots and enters recovery mode, don't exit and do Factory Reset and Wipe Cache, after that reboot your phone.

    That's it, your phone on CHC/CHC,CHC/TGY region with native call recording and on TGY rom with all the google services working including google assistant, Samsung pass, Samsung health.
    Enjoy! )
