Bought an S20 FE in China. Has Google play services but had to download Google Play. Also has Chinese apps embedded like Baidu. Also random things won't work e.g. Voice wake up for Google Assistant, Netflix "not compatible with this device" in app store etc.

Would be ideal to install the standard international OS but don't want to brick the phone. Wondering if possible? Is there an Odin and ROM available?

Thanks

Already a real answer to this? I did order the S20 FE 5G , SM-G7810 from Hongkong.......

Curious if call-recording works out of the box on the HK-firmware

there are some S20 firmwares floating around on sammobile.com/firmwares but not for your specific model. The FW's have been cross compatible for the last 5 galaxy s devices so long that youre using the FW for the processor type you have. I have a 781u1, for which there isnt a FW available for downloading ATM. If its a qualcomm, you should be able to flash any other qualcomm based FW, but youll likely need patched Odin to do it so it can ignore the version errors that surely will crop up

Hello. I live in Italy and will receive the same phone in the next few days. I have already downloaded the firmware for my country, but it is for the SM-G781B version, do you think I can flash it with Odin, or I get errors. I would like to do the operation, even before doing the first start, to make everything clean! What do you recommend, based on your experience? Or do I leave it like this and use it regularly? Thanks.

I also follow, I'm in Italy, in 15 days I'll get the:
SM-G7810 S20 FE 5G 8GB/128GB.

Have you discovered or tried how to put SM-G781B Region ITV Firmware?

This information will also be useful for other people who will find themselves in our situation in other countries!

Sorry, I can't be of help to you and other users, in the same conditions, but I will refuse delivery of the package! I decided to buy a European version SM-G781

中国大陆版本与香港版本完全相同,因此可以书写。如果要写入其他版本的ROM,请确保它们具有相同的硬件。

Translation: The Chinese version is exactly the same as the Hong Kong version, so it can be written. If you want to write to other versions of ROM, make sure they have the same hardware.

Hello! I am also in mainland China and kind of stuck in there for a while and I'm planning on buying the S21 Ultra. Do you think it will be able to flash the Hong-Kong Rom as well? I heard that the Chinese Rom has some compatibility issues with Netflix and perhaps with VPN I don't know 🤔

According to past experience, Samsung mobile phone version of mainland China and Hongkong version of the same hardware, ROM can be universal, but before the official release of S21, no one can be sure.

The mobile phone software system of any mainland China brand is bloated and complex, so I immediately wrote it to Hongkong version ROM after receiving the goods, so I have no conditions to recommend the use of the mainland China Version System.

So it means that if I buy the s21 ultra in mainland China I can flash the HK firmware on it, if they have the same hardware, right?

Because of my foreigner ID I can't go to Hong-Kong and go back to mainland. And I don't know if it's possible to buy HK version of the s21 series from China. That's why I plan to buy the Chinese version and flash the HK version on it

According to the experience of S20 series, it is recommended that S21 should pay attention to hardware configuration and pay attention to relevant forums in Chinese mainland after listing, because no one here cares about the relationship between Hongkong and Chinese mainland ROM.:unsure:

I also bought the Chines version (SM-G7810) which was flashed to Hong Kong version by Etoren store. I would like to flash to a European frimware. BUT the Chinese version has 8GB of Ram. In Europe etc it has 6GB of ram. Will that cause issues?

On a Hong Kong version I was able to flash the Chinese ROM. I did it because call-recorder is working then and essential for me.

I suppose the other way, from Chinese tot Hong Kong rom will also work.
