1. So first, download SDBstarterKidv1 from the following link please:
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.
BTU updated last week. My watch was DBT. I changed to BTU.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.
I assume I have ITV version, being in Italy...Info for SM-R500 user(s)...
Only 7 CSC/Sales Code still on CSH3... all others now DSL1 ready...

I just received the update (R500 ITV)
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.
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).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
