Hi Some questions
1. Are these features dependent on the type of processor Snapdragon / Exynos. For eg some feature set require parameters to be provided, would they change depending on the processor especially network related features (eg: enabling VOLTE)
2. Lets say i root the phone and make changes to the CSCFeatures file. Now if i unroot the phone by flashing the stock AP file back using ODIN, then technically i have unrooted the phone and since i did not flash the CSC file, the changes made should continue to be there. Would the changes and files written to the system/csc areas continue to be there after i flash it with the stock AP file ?

1)Though Some Features are related with CPU but almost all are hardware
Since these tweaks are Software related should work without any conflict between CPU's
VoLte is totally CSC related thing n ofcourse needs to be supported by network carrier provider within country
(For unlocked devices it might would be used as many other guides would be there to enable native VoLte feature on Network unlocked devices Since CPU versions varies accordingly markets and many people prefer to use snapdragon or exynos as per own choices hence needs sometimes unlocking of network)

2)For making changes in omc-csc obviously you needs to be rooted point granted. But if you unroot to stock by flashing Stock Firmware using odin saved changes will lost as Odin flashing does complete wipe including Internal storage (Not confirmed as sometimes it doesn't wipes internal storage dramatically but in every case it does. I guess especially in case of flashing Stock over Stock it doesn't wipe internal storage but In case of complete unroot from Custom to Stock it wipes as well as you yourself need to wipe internal storage to avoid odin flashing errors)

3)Also AP (One File Firmware Contains Home_CSC Pre Included In Cache.img if you extract it you can even get flashable zip for your Home_csc in Case if you want to use native features like eg.VoLte on Other CSC Based Custom Roms), So ofcourse changes you previously done will be lost after flashing omc-csc alone OR whole AP/Four Files Full Firmware through Odin

Thanks for the detailed explanation. But one clarification required again. In the option where i am trying to unroot the deivce i only flash the AP file (not the one file that contains all files) but one of the 4 firmware files. I uncompressed it and found it to contain - boot.img, recovery.imk and system.img.ext4. So will that still overwrite the CSC files that were modified when root was in place. ?

1)Odin Is Designed To Flash Specifically .tar/.tar.md5 files afaik So even if you decompress Stock One File Firmware AP Into 4 Files Likes .img, Odin Will Not Flash It So No Further Discussion Here
(As You Can only Flash Single AP.tar.md5 file in case of One File Firmware So Obviously your whole data will be reset including previous changes you done while on Root using custom Rom)

2)In case of 4 files Full firmware which includes .tar.md5 files for AP/CP/BL/CSC Etc to be added in Odin's respective Tabs
You will also loose your previous changes made while on Root As flashing Odin will completely unroot your device so no access to system/root directory
(In simple way, Odin flash will lead your device to complete stock experience without root only Knox flag tripped exception OR else your device gets in Factory manner after flashing Stock firmware through odin)

Apologies, I just dont seem to able to articulate my point/query. So further questions.

In the second case you mentioned (of 4 files Full firmware which includes .tar.md5 files for AP/CP/BL/CSC Etc to be added in Odin's respective Tabs) what if i only flash the AP file and leave the other tabs blank. Will it still wipe out the CSC area ?

1)Yes It Will erase your previous CSC contains specially if you were on different CSC And Modified It Per Your Requirements While on Root

2)As I Already Mentioned In my earlier post that CSC features are packed within one file firmware too in cache.img format That's why stock Firmwares are specifically categorised according to country for eg. like INS/XSG/XXV/BTU/XME Etc.Which suggests Home_CSC Codes

3)So the conclusion is that either flash 1 file i.e. AP through Odin Or Flash Separate 4 Files Firmware You Will Loose Modified CSC Contains while On Root/On Different CSC Because Odin totally resets your device to factory state/Unroot it So Obviously Modifications Done While On Root Would Be Erased

Hello guys... I'm trying to put up a few things(data speed and count) in my stock nougat ROM for galaxy s6 . There's something that's bothering me... that I don't have the omc folder in my root and in csc/others.xml I can't locate as to where should I type the code.
I know it's CscFeature_ like something mentioned in the OP but I can't find the headings under which the OP states the code is to be put.
I'll appreciate this help.
Please tell if you need screenshot.

Edit: Thanks for consideration (if anyone did !;) ) but I figured out my way. Now I have what I wanted.
Thanks for the codes.
Regards
