    R750XXU1BOA7 is older firmware than R750XXU2BOK1.
    The downgrade has been blocked.

    Try the same or a newer version.

    Installing a firmware with 'OJV' in the csc code will give you an XSG csc code.
    XSG (for the UAE) is the default code in the firmware.
    The default is set if your Gear does not have a csc that is in the firmware.

    used the AP button. I just need to know if there is a way to flash the latest firmware that is listed under country South Africa

    The BTU firmware is newer than your original firmware, and so would install ok.

    Your csc is now BTU and firmware R750XXU2BOL2.

    If you try to install a South Africa firmware it will fail as the latest SA firmware is older than the BTU firmware you now have.

    Even if you wait for an update to the SA firmware you will not get an SA csc code.
