Download CSC Changer for Samsung Galaxy Devices

Want to change CSC on your Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note II? You still can use the old method ~ type *#272*Device IMEI# at Phone dial pad on older Samsung Galaxy S3 firmware. However, latest firmware (like XXELLA) disabled this shortcut. And this method totally won’t work on Samsung Galaxy Note 2. How to change CSC then? No worry, CSC Changer application comes to rescue. Thanks to XDA Developer, bassie1995. However, root access is required.

Note – Changing CSC will factory reset your phone. Everything will be deleted. Do backup before perform this task.

  1. Hi Jayce,

    Downloaded the zip file but couldn’t install from recovery. I then went over to xda and downloaded via QR code but the app have limited choices and XME is not in the list.

    Any idea? Am now using Android HD ROM V.18

  2. Have brand-new Samsung Galaxy Note 2, nothing on it yet, haven’t even activated it yet. Should I download CSC changer before putting anything on it? Does it void the warranty? Thanks so much!

  3. I need change my note 2 CSC. My phone come from Afghanistan so I need to change my csc to XME = Malaysia. If I change the csc I can update firmware on Kies and OTA to get new jellybean 4.1.2 from malaysia? What the effect if I change the csc?

  4. Hi jayce
    I want to change my device status from modified to normal to be able to get new updated by OTA, please can you help me with that ? I will be so appreciate to you. Also does the CSC changer will can do that if i download it ?
    Many thanks

  5. Is Samsung SIII mini compatible to all firmware spec of SIII? Do you think it is worth of money to spend SIII mini instead of SIII?

  6. Hi Jayce!
    I have a SGN2 but my CSC is Portugal ver, i want to change it to Australian ver [ordered phone online and it came as portugal ver] . Is there another option apart from root access to change CSC on SGN2?

    If you can run me through the steps it’d be great!



  7. I updated my S3 with this file: GT-I8190-DBT-I8190XXAMB3
    But now my CSC is unknow, also is the phone no longer supported by KIES.
    CSC changer is not working.
    Any solution for this? Is there any dowside by having an unknown CSC?

    thanks in advance

  9. hi
    1-i have galaxy s2 GT I9100 .i changed csc code to XXS but i don’t remember the original csc code of my phone.. I want to update my phone but it say no update. i downloaded a jelly bean software with odin that have csc FOD on pc but i am not sure if it will work properly on my phone!!

    2- if i changed csc code, pda code will change ?

    10x a lot πŸ™‚

      • 10x for reply πŸ™‚
        1- If i do a factory reset for my phone, CSC code will reurn to the original one ? or it will stay on XSS ( XSS not XXS sorry)? because i want the original CSC and i don’t remember it :S

        2- what you advice me to do to update my phone ?

          • 10x a lot
            I connected my phone to computer and open Samsung kies it say your device is not supported
            it is possible that is because of changing CSC ?
            – what is XSS code mean which country and 10x a lot plz reply … πŸ™‚

              • ok 10x a lot. till now I have any update for my phone. my phone android version is 2.3.5 it is too old. I contact Samsung company for this problem but they said to update via kies, but it is not working for me :(.
                So I installed I9100XWLS8_I9100FOPLS3_FOP, which is jelly bean 4.1.2, firmware on my pc with odin. FOD mean Spain I think, But I am from Lebanon (Middle east). If I flash it for my phone it will work properly?

                2- If I am from Lebanon which CSC code do I use ? 10x a lot again

                  • 10x a lot now because of you now I am sure what I am doing. but one final question if I installed this firmware and didn’t work properly there is any method to return back my previous software, another that installing the 2.3.5 and flash it again ?

                    2-if I do a factory reset it can return me to 2.3.5 android or it only erase content?

  12. Hi!
    Bought my phone from TIGO PARAGUAY… moved to USA and changed to AT&T so unlocked and rooted it… freezing started after rooting it so I unrooted it but as I was not able to find a TIGO PARAGUAY ROM I installed the ORANGE FRANCE one… now it seems that my firmware and csc does not match… (not sure) and I’ve tried the CSC changer but only got FTM option and it says MUST BE THREE CHARTS
    my phone looks like this:
    AP: N7100XXDMF1
    i would really love to find a way to get SOFTWARES UPDATES FOR US REGION but cannot figure out how to do it still… also.. my phone is rooted again cause i cant stand the built in apps that came with the Orange ROM
    If you have any solution i would really apreciate the help. thanks!

  13. AP : I9300XXUFME7
    CP: I9300XXUFME7
    CSC: I9300OXAFME7

    it is ok with my phone ..GT_I9300 4.2.2
    Can i change this method..????

  14. Hey Jayce,

    Do you think this will help me improve network signal if I’m using international version and select specific CSC for US?


  15. Hello there, I have a Sony e4g and I tried the *#272*IMEI# but it is not working saying “unknown application” Do you know what I should do ? Many thanks

  16. hello sir jayce ask ku lang ginamit ku xme sa pa free con fig.ku sa csc panu ko ba maibalik sa dati kasi na lock lahat sa globe j5 2016 gamit ku salamat

  17. Hi Jayce, thanks for the method. I’m really cracking my head looking for the correct CSC. Each time I download the firmware (XME), I always get the vietnam CSC. Finally a simple solution. The code still still works. Thanks man.
