    Hey Boris, thanks for the super fast reply. I also have CSC: BTU, DBT, ITV, and XEF as other region options. So I guess I can change to either of those three that have gotten WP 8.1 and I should be fine right? I wonder if ITV, XEF, and XEO on my phone will get WP 8.1 since my other three region options have gotten it..any ideas?

    Always go with the ones that already got it. ATO is Austrian, BTU is UK (I think), DBT is German, So first try with just changing CSC's, it might pick up the update right away, but it might take it an hour or so before pick it up. If that doesn't work. Try with changing regions. For example: If you choose ATO, change the region to Austria, then try with BTU (region changed to United Kingdom) or DBT (region change it to Germany. I am not promising this will help, but these are combinations that you can do.
    Well, I guess you have around 6 hard resets to do, LOL. (Changing CSC causes hard reset, that's normal)
    Report back what did you do and if you succeeded :)

    It's weird on my Ativ S. I changed CSC like crazy (at least 40 times) and I only had a hard reset twice on the phone all the way at the start when I used it to finally get the GDR2 and 3 updates. After that, and it currently still is like that, I can change CSC without doing a hard reset.

    cptnMorg, everytime you select/change the CSC, there should be an message prompting you to restart your phone but you do have the option of saying yes or cancel. Maybe you hit cancel?

    But hey Boris! Awesome news! My phone is now updated with WP 8.1 update. I use CSC ATO and I only change just the CSC. The update was found right away when I went to search for the updates. My phone downloaded/installed an 8.0 preparation update first than to WP 8.1 update. Both of the those updates took about 40 minutes total, 15 for the prep and 25 for WP 8.1 update. So far, I'm loving it! It's finally what a smartphone should be. Thanks for the help and info Boris. Keep it up!

    Awesome, I am glad that you manage to update to the latest. Enjoy it now. I know i did and still am. My ATIV S was reborn with this latest OS+FW. Now, make sure you got up to 10 posts count and we expect screenshots from your "new phone" :)
    And you are welcomed for any help, but it was not just me who helped, here is Papale and others too. It's a joint effort.
    If you have any other question, feel free to ask.
    About hard reset issue that cptnMorg have, well, if it works then just leave it that way. If i was there, even tho changing CSC didn't needed a hard reset, I would do it myself, just because to be sure it all went as it should. cptnMorg is not the only one having this, few others did reported here in this thread previously. :)

    My phone had only CSC ZTO (Brasil) and now it has win 8.1.1 (CSC ATO). I did everything explained on page 1. Now I have 6 CSCs: ATO, BTU, DBT, ITV, XEF, and XEO. Everything is Ok. Just one problem : I receive alerts from my mobile operator every minute. I don't know what is that. I think the return to CSC ZTO would remove this problem, but there isn't this choice. Some suggestions ? Apply interop-unlock ? Thank's.........

    How could I do this flash ? What file can I use ? I'm not so expert doing this. I follow exactly the explanation on page 1, using WP8 SMD binary USB Downloader Ver. 3.47.exe. To modify only the CSC using a file (and, what file ?), I don't know how. Thanks again.....

    To flash just the CSC only select the CSC radio button.

    That is possible only if your phone is interop-unlocked, in Android vocabulary that means rooted. And you have to know how to tweak registry. :)

    I did everything explained on page 1, again. In ATO i donwloaded and installed every versions. When the phone begin downloading Win 8.1.1, only downloading (not installing), you turn off it and install only CSC ZTO (GT-I8750_VJALL3_P.csc). After this, you turn on the phone, go to update software and it will continue downloading Win 8.1.1 and installing it. Now, everything works well. When installing, it uses the new csc ZTO. I followed the instructions posted in youtube by someone...........Thanks to all........

    So, bottom line: Your ATIV S is running now on Official WP8.1.1 (including official Samsung firmware), is that correct?

    Hi guys!
    I flashed my phone, with the method from the opening post, i was on t mobile DTM, and could change to TNL and MAX, and neither of those cscs got 8.1.1.
    While flashing it and then updating it everything went smoothly, but I have a problem with camera. When language is set to Serbian my camera does not work, when I revert it back to english t works.
    Dusan Randj mentioned that problem somwhere around page 50, but it was in developers preview, not official 8.1.1.
    And one more question, after updating it,I had Cortana installed, but after update I did a harde reset, and now she's gone, I can't find it in the store, what happened?
    03-03-2015 01:29 AM

    Hi, camera doesn't work on Serbian on official 8.1.. You have to change to English or other language and it'll work. No way around sobfar.
    Check regional settings and language. It have to be set to US English and etc. for Cortana.

    The camera problem is still there with serbian, but seeing that ATIV SE received the firmware update we might expect samsung to finally release Ativ Camera that will be alternative to integrated MS one.
