its just the country sales code, I wouldn't worry about it. Basically you can change it but it does a full factory reset which includes your internal SD card so unless you need to leave as is.

Not sure what mine is could be polish but depends on rom you flash and I've never had call to chnage it.

Keeping the CSC correct to the rom is a good idea as OTA updates will work as intended moving forward.

I think I used the Samsung Galaxy S / S2 CSC

Please note it wipes everything on phone not just rom/apps

well I was under the impression once phone is rooted and flashed you won't get OTA updates?

Yes OTA doesn't seem to work with insecure kernel but flashing a stock rom without root should give you OTA no problem, OP never mentioned if root access was required

Depending on the firmware, you can change the CSC by editing the /system/csc/salescode.dat file and just changing the 3 letters to the CSC that you want (XEU is the "open europe" CSC which is probably most likely to be useful). That said, I believe that most of the Polish firmware already _are_ XEU, in which case there's probably little benefit.

In _most_ cases this change is all that is required as it identifies to the market etc. what region you're in. The other changes in the CSC package are rarely in th relevant as long as it's an "open" firmware to start with.

I'm quoting the file path from memory, it's been a while since I used a CSC-based firmware so I can't check.
