    Is it still possible to change the CSC code with the Diagnostics Tool on GDR3 (build 8.0.10517.150)?
    I can't launch it anymore after updating to GDR3.

    Yes ##634#
    *#32164733
    still works for me.

    Hey guys!
    I wanted to test my Diagnostics Tool (just curios) and after entering ##634#, I saw "Odyssey _121205" on the screen, in red. Whats that all about? I have a T899M model, bought from ebay.de (Germany) and apparently, God knows how, its from Canada (Bell), unlocked. oh, and I live in Romania.

    Device: Samsung ATIV S i8750
    OS: WP8, GDR3, v8.0.10517.150
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Code: ##634# - Installing Diagnosis automatically and get you in right away (Odyssey_121205 is Diagnosis)
    Code (in Diagnosis numpad): *#321647335 or *#78*598031 opens CSC Converter
    After choosing a different CSC, the phone will require a Hard Reset. Backup everything you need to backup before doing this, cuz it will make your phone to Factory Reset, in other words will wipe out everything you saved on your phone
    It is pretty much easy, but if you are still wondering "Should I do it?", then my advice is Don't Do It?. Reasearch and read before you do anything on your phone. :)

    You didn't get me. I can't change my CSC. After I select other CSC, the phone doesn't ask for reset.

    I was not referring to you, i was just writing codes and what it does. since your phone doesn't ask for hard reset after changing then hard reset yourself, see if the CSC has changed. Anyway here is what you can do:
    Method 1 - If when you change the CSC and phone doesn't prompt you for hard reset, get out of the Diagnosis (back, back back...), soft reset your phone and get in Diagnosis again, and try again, if it worked and ask you for hard reset, you are good to go.
    Method 2 - If Method 1 didn't work, manually hard reset your phone, then try to change your CSC previously using codes i mention in the post above for installing Diagnosis and entering the CSC Converter. It should work in my opinion, but if that doesn't work, something is wrong with your phone.
    This work on ATIV S with WP8, haven't test it with ATIV S with WP8.1 DP, since i am not installing that before it rolls out in Official version.

    I've tried manual hard reset and it didn't work.

    I have used method #3 - reinstall Diagnosis (after HR it was reinstalled). The phone did't ask for hard reset as usually, but I did a soft reset and it worked.
    Funny thing, at my local repair service installing DP doesn't void warranty but changing CSC does.

    So installing a beta OS is approved but changing the CSC which loads carrier specific settings that are already loaded but not activated voids the warranty? Sounds like the shop does not know what they are talking about.
    Is the shop assuming that you are flashing the device?

    Changing CSC, does NOT void your warranty, cuz you can always change it back to your carrier's CSC. Any service shop (or Carrier tech service) who will say to you that by changing your CSC you voided your warranty is doing that cuz of 2 things:
    1. Doesn't know what they're doing.
    2. Doesn't want to repair your phone.
    By flashing a new ROM over OTA, also is not considered as voiding your warranty cuz that's the OFFICIAL way, but if you side-flash a new ROM, that will void your warranty cuz those are considered custom ROMs, which in this case to be able to do that, you will have to have your phone "jailbreaked" or in other words, has to be interop-unlock, which WILL void your warranty.

    Well, you pretty much merge 2 of the methods i gave you and you made a Method 3, which is great, you are actually thinking and acting, not just asking questions around. Well done my friend, glad you solve your problem :)

    Thank you! Sometimes the simplest method is the right method.

    More details on warranty:
    - the offical repair service says - "Instaling DP is perfectly okay because it was released Microsoft. This will not impact your warranty."
    - also - "We cannot accept phone with altered CSC. You must change it back to original, and then we will repair it."

    So, it doesn't void warranty if your'e able to change to CSC to original.
