I nearly...give up

1. So first, download SDBstarterKidv1 from the following link please:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...&postcount=330

WARNING: This will reset your watch, so make sure you back it up so you can restore it later.

2. Next make sure your watch is set up as follows:
- Debugging Mode turned ON
- Connect watch to WiFi and get its IP address (To find the IP address on Galaxy Watch: Settings > Connections > Wifi > Wifi Networks > [your network] > Scroll down to IP address)

3. Next, from SDBstarterKidv1 double click on 'install.bat' (it will not install, it just flashes a window, but this step is required)
4. From the subfolder data\tools double click on 'sdb.exe' (it will not install, it just flashes a window, but this step is required too)

After noting IP address of the Galaxy Watch, Launch ‘Ansicon.exe’ from sdb_2.2.60_windows-64\data\tools (this thing will open a command prompt window, and all the action is done here)

5. Type: sdb connect [IP of Galaxy Watch]

6. Look at Galaxy Watch, it will prompt you to accept a message
7. If you try the sdb connect [IP address] again, it will say "already connected". This means we are connected and good to continue.

8. Type: sdb shell and Enter

9. Copy Paste: launch_app csc-manager.csc-pre-configuration and Enter

So this lets you change the region of the watch. Now for me I changed mine to UK. The code for UK is BTU you change this on the watch itself!

Once the watch is reset, pair it back up with your phone.

10. Once pared with your phone you will need to:
- Turn on developer mode again
- Turn on debugging mode
- Turn off the watch and turn it back on again.
- You may need to wait a few minutes.

Having some issues changing csc on my galaxy watch active sm-r500. Im trying to change it over to BTU. I select the BTU option on my watch which tells me its installing BTU for around 3 seconds and then resets. I then reconnect to my phone as requested and turn on developer mode and debugging... I then reboot and leave it for a few hours... check for updates and nothing. My phone reports my Software is R500XXU1CSH3/R500OXA1CSH3. I've tried a few times on different laptops too. Im in the UK and have tried what feels like every option. Any help would be really appreciated.

Many thanks :D

:confused:

No idea what you are trying to achieve...

1.
BTU SM-R500 is still on CSH3:
Code:
<latest>R500XXU1CSH3/R500OXA1CSH3/</latest>

2.
Why not flash DSL1 for SM-R500 via netOdin?

If your Goal is to have DSL1 Firmware...

Best Regards

Damn, I misunderstood.. my bad.
I thought BTU had updated already... So the process I followed worked but its still on CSH3. I thought UK got the update already.

Thanks

Info for SM-R500 user(s)...

Only 7 CSC/Sales Code still on CSH3... all others now DSL1 ready...




Best Regards
I assume I have ITV version, being in Italy...
It's a shame to see that almost everyone already have the new update while our country still drowning into the waiting game...

Incredible...

I've always said that software updates it's the major letdown in Samsung mobile hardware products...

I just received the update (R500 ITV)

Thank you very much for info.

Now all CSC/Sales Codes are now on DSL1. :good:

My post from today is obsolete... :D
https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=81499153&postcount=369

Summary...

ALL SM-R500 DSL1 latest
ALL SM-R800 DSL1 latest
ALL SM-R810 DSL1 latest

If somebody can not update to DSL1 from these 3 devices... then something is maybe wrong/blocked...

Best Regards

Any info on R805USQU1BSE3? The US LTE version of Galaxy Watch? Samsung says they will not send out the update, but the wireless provider will. I don't feel like paying $40 just to get the update and not use the LTE. That's asinine. I hope someone knows a way for me to bypass that and flash it somehow.

Is this really a thing in the USA? it's not the first time I've read someone suggesting that you have to pay network operator for a firmware update...

Pretty sure Samsung delivers incremental updates region by region as part of a service level agreement for the commercial life of the product everywhere else and is not handled by network operators at all.

Looks like us Galaxy Watch LTE users in Canada with R805W variant will have to wait till Jan 30th at the very least (most likely early February due to staged rollout) for this One UI 1.5:https://forum.telus.com/t5/Mobility/Software-Update-Schedule/ta-p/53566

Damn Telus is SLOW!!? One update per year and buggy release is terrible.
Maybe a way to fetch this SL3 firmware earlier?

Edit: Instead my Huawei P30 Pro is constantly asking me to update to Android 10 that I don't even need. Yet when there is something wrong with firmware there is never an update lol. Oh maybe Samsung is just bad with updates here in Canada...

Yeah I confirmed a few days ago. Samsung is not sending the update directly to the LTE devices. The carrier must send the update to the LTE devices. I confirmed with AT&T that they have the update ready. I just couldn't receive it because my watch wasn't subscribed to their network. I have no choice but to pay for LTE service to get the update. How lame.

    Not looked into the Netodin route. But tempted except eas told by samsung store that if it goes wrong it will invalidate warranty. Is it easy? I know there is a ppt i could read (and will) just wanted opinion? Thanks guys and happy Christmas
    It is not difficult. I've done it quite a few times without problems. The tricky part for me is to maintain connection while loading the AP BT and CSC files in NetOdin. I sometimes have to start all over again when the connection got lost (= the IP address is not showed anymore in NetOdin).
    Once the files are loaded and the IP address is still shown, it's just a matter of pressing the start button and leave watch and laptop for about 20 mins.
    One tip: disconnect any network cable from the laptop before you start. NetOdin can have difficulties connecting to your watch if you don't remove the cable.

    About when to expect the DSL1 update in Europe: it took the CSG4 update 17 days to cross the ocean after release in the US. DSL1 was released December 10th in the US, so it looks like it will take a few more days if crossing the ocean takes as long as it did for CSG4.
