    Change CSC to XSP

    Hello,

    After trying out the Android Beta 7.0, I decided to switch back to my original firmware (XSP 6.0.1). I downloaded the XSP firmware for my S7E, but after flashing I get THL firmware. I CANNOT open Preconfig as *#272*IMEI# does not do anything. How do I change back? *#272*IMEI# works on XSP firmware but not THL

    This is one of the drawbacks of changing your CSC.
    After installing the XSP firmware, android looks for the CSC code on your phone to match the csc's in the firmware.
    But of course to get on the beta programme you installed another firmware and that csc is not in your XSP firmware.

    In these cases android selects the default CSC code, which as you have found out is THL.

    If SmartSwitch will not re-install your original XSP code then you are stuck with THL.

    On the Phone Info Samsung app, my Original CSC is listed as blank. Will it change to XSP?
    probably not, but try putting phone in download mode when connecting to SmartSwitch
    But why won't *#272*IMEI# work on THL? It works on XSP.
    It shows how random this is.
    Some firmware allows the short code to be used and some do not.
    The authority will be written into the firmware - probably in the CSC.

    Is there any other way to open Preconfig? Is there any SINGLE XSP CSC ROM?

    There is no single CSC XSP firmware.
    Maybe with a Z3X or Octoplus box the CSC will change.
    Ask at you local mobile repair shop.

    It still doesn't work. I simply cannot get Preconfig to open. Is rooting the only method? 83052020100812173552301071192687, 22623277326634424320 and 9920 do not work either. Am I stuck with THL until I root?

    So Samsung basically made a trap for THL. Is it possible to open Preconfig via Service Mode?
