Google Pixel 6
Got my Japan Pixel 6 today. Turns out the SKU info is stored in devinfo partition. Replace the original "GR1YH" with global SKU "GB7N6" and it's done. No wipe/reflash required.

This is what I did. For Pixel 5 Japan + Root, run the following command to change phone model to Global.
Bash:
echo -n GTT9Q | dd of=/dev/block/by-name/cdt bs=1 seek=422 conv=notrunc
Reboot and Open camera setting, the camera sound toggle should be there.

    Especially to avoid such cases there is a script: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...xel-6-to-global-version.4365275/post-86025249
    If you didn't make a copy of your original partition, you can send me to PM the wrong one. I will try to help you.

    Ok.
    1. Unlock your bootloader
    2. Boot to TWRP. Today it is test9 version and it works on Android 11 (So, downgrade if you are on A12)
    3. From TWRP run (menu - install) this script: MID_Changer_v1.02-TWRP.zip
    4. Choose GTT9Q Model ID (it is Euro Union, Australia) for changing
    5. Flash global version Factory Image with device wiping (it can be A12 one)
    6. Lock the bootloader. Done
    Enjoy

    Is there anyone who tried this and confirmed to be working? I am a bit hesitant to try this but I also want to get rid of the camera shutter. Thanks.
    I confirm it's working on a Pixel 5 imported from Japan. For anyone who might need more help, this is how I did it coming from Android 12. Root is not needed. Your data will be lost, so make a backup.

    1. Unlock your bootloader and downgrade to Android 11. For this I followed this guide until step 6 (including step 6). Something it's not mentioned in the guide is that on Windows, you'll have to also install this driver first.

    2. In Android 11, download the file from step 3 and leave it there in Downloads: MID_Changer_v1.02-TWRP.zip

    3. Boot to TWRP. For this I followed this video until minute 4.03. In minute 4.04, when it tells you to flash the TWRP, instead I used the command fastboot boot filename.img, just to make it a temporary boot.

    4. From TWRP, I chose Install and then I looked for the previous .zip. When installing, I simply swiped to install, I didn't change any option.

    5. I chose GTT9Q Model ID as indicated.

    6. I restarted and I flashed the latest Android 12 (like in step #1).

    7. I restarted again, and locked the bootloader, following the first guide.

    No more Japanese crap.

    if after I do this to my pixel 5a, can I still receive google/phone updates as normal?
    Yes, no problem.
