I want to test the TS.43 flow by changing some of the carrier configuration (cc) parameters as described in: IMS Service Entitlement | Android Open Source Project
For that, I use:
Samsung Galaxy A52
According to documentation, for that I require the root access and I actually managed to set this up with magisk and Odin.
However, I would still get the error message “cc: Permission denied.” when running the shell command in root mode.
I have tried to find information about it but the best I could find was the following:
Here on lines 908 and 1481, I can see the check for whether we are running in root mode AND also validation for whether we have user build type.
From TelephonyUtils - boolean IS_USER = “user”.equals(android.os.Build.Type);
From Build.TYPE - /** The type of build, like “user” or “eng”. */
public static final String TYPE = getString(“ro.build.type”);
I am not too familiar with Android development, so I would like to ask the following.
How do I get the ro.build.type as something other than “user”?
As I understand, I would need to download the Samsung firmware for my phone which has the ro.build.type=eng OR ro.build.type=userdebug ? Where can I get such ROM? As eng and userdebug are for testing, does Samsung even provides such firmware?
If I am mistaken, could you please generally advise me on such issues and propose some possible solutions?
Note: I understand that what I do might void my phone of warranty and block some applications. This device is for testing purposes only and it is not going to be used in common user activities.
