    You went through that trouble for nothing, Samsung and google don't allow this anymore

    Not all that familiar with Samsung phones and Odin, but I believe you have to flash it back to stock firmware.

    I've not actually used Odin, but the first thing I'd do (if you haven't already) is try and flash it back to the original region...

    Damn that sucks. It's an actual physical fuse on the motherboard that gets blown? That's rough.

    Not only that it can make Google play store uncertified, banking apps most likely not work

    They really don't want you messing with your phone I guess huh? Haha geez. It should just void warranty, that's it, in my opinion. I've never owned a Samsung phone

    How can i find the stock firmware? There is a lot of builds... Odin don't allow me to flash android 11/10, only 12. Even if i install an ZTO firmware i don't have google play on the phone.
