Samsung Combination Firmware Compatibility Codes

This is a tutorial to help you check the compatibility of any Samsung stock firmware/flash file or Combination file before flashing it to your Samsung device.

First of all, what’s a Samsung Combination file/firmware or flash file and what is it used for?

Combination firmware or flash file is professional service firmware or flash file for professionals or engineers.

It could also be called a developer software because it is used to test all hardware features like back camera, front camera, sensors, RAM memory, ROM memory, screen/display, Bluetooth, WiFi, Radio, etc via a service/test menu.

A combination file or firmware can’t be used as a daily driver because it’s limited in the basic features you will need for a working smartphone. It’s just like the safe mode in a smartphone.

Why should you check the Samsung stock firmware to know if it’s compatible before flashing it to your Samsung device?

Uses of a Samsung combination firmware are:

  • To remove Google Account FRP(Factory Reset Protection) lock
  • Enable ADB/Fastboot access on the locked Samsung phone using the ENG S.boot file
  • To remove the Samsung Account lock or Samsung Factory Reset Protection
  • Troubleshooting of your Samsung Galaxy device
  • Restoring to factory defaults
  • It enables the Service menu / Test mode to test the Samsung device.
  • A combination file can be used to downgrade the Android version.
  • Fix the error: The device does not have the key-DRK issue.
  • Fix Samsung device that’s stuck, hang or stopping in recovery mode.
  • Fix a device that’s stuck on the Samsung logo.
  • Fix or repair IMEI, Serial Number, and other connectivity related IDs
  • Repair Knox
  • Change CSC of your Samsung device

Whatever you want to do with a combination firmware, make sure you flash the one that matches your device and also have the official working stock ROM to restore your device to its normal state for daily usage.

Flashing the combination files can be done via Samsung Odin Flashtool, Z3X Box, CM2 Samsung Module, Octoplus Box, Miracle Box, and other professional tools.

  1. Hello, I’m trying to recover my Samsung Tab A T387VVRU1AR15. I was doing Verizon updates when it crashed, I think it was update 7 that caused it. So when trying to power up, it states “This is old binary. Please update to latest binary.” So I am assuming I need stock firmware, and not the combination firmware? Where can I grab the firmware? I finished downloading the Samsung drivers and Odin 3b. Thank you for any assistance you can provide! I appreciate it.

    • Odin3b was created for a specific purpose and not what you’re trying to do. Recomended for your tab is Odin3 v3.13.3. Your tablet is using binary 1 when you should be using binary 2. This is the build number you should be using. T387VVRS2BSK2

  2. Hello. IK seem to be having difficulties finding the correct combination file for the Galaxy Tab A (2019) SM T510 with firmware listed as T510XXS2ASK1. Can anyone assist me with directions or a link?

  3. Hi, I’m trying to remove FRP on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Model SM-N950NZKAKTO. I’m confused about the correct version of ODIN, combination file/firmware and the stock firmware for this model. Could you help me , please? Thanks a lot.

  5. Hi,
    Can you help me , please. My ROM information is R16NW/G930FxxSX6esI4 I am try to find the correct combination file.

    Many thanks for your help

    • If you’re trying to flash a combination file into your phone I’m curious why. Are you having difficulties with your phone. Combination files are used to bring your device to a certain state. The Binaries have to be correct or the flash will fail. Your binary structure is listed as 6 if the Build No. (not ROM) is correct. You should find a combination file that is similar, (if you look at your Build No, “G930FxxSX6esI4” you’ll see where the 6 is which indicates the Binary. Find a file that has a 6 in the same place with whatever version of Android your device is running. Hope you are using Odin3.14 to flash.

  6. This is for a phone I had a few years ago. I want to give it to someone but I cannot get past FRP. I gave read a combination rom can this??

    Many thanks for your suggestion.

    • Using a combination file doesn’t usually bypass FRP. The Google sign in FRP that is. If you were in “Custom Binary Blocked” mode then these combination files usually help. These are two different FRP locks. This is why I mentioned the binary structure. I have heard it could be used to bypass the Google sign-in, however, the many time I tried this it never worked for the intended purpose. I’ve had my best results bypassing the Google sign in FRP by using YouTube videos. Sometimes this can be time-consuming because there are so many different but similar methods. When and if you take this avenue to fix your issue keep in mind your phone model and what latest security patch the device is using. Here is a link to one. Be advised that the SIM Card method in the video is the most widely used method for these devices.

  7. Please I have a G965N s9+ duos but only 1 sim slot working, how do I convert it to international version with the 2 sim slots fully functional

      • When I initially got the phone it was in Korean single sim so I gave it to an engineer to make it dual sim, now my build number is ‘LamLazy Rom s9+ – azmobile’. My reception for both sim is now weak maybe because they share the same IMEI number cos on all other dual sim phones I have been seeing they have separate IMEI for each sim.

  8. It was android 10 in korean and now android 9, model number should now read SM-G965F/DS instead it reads SM-G965F and shares on IMEI number thereby making the reception very weak. Now I’m thinking of returning it back to the korean version then look for an official SM-G965F/DS firmware to flash on it, can you help me sir.

    • Okay, what you’re saying is, your device is currently detecting and working as dual sim right? If yes, then there’s no need to convert it to a dual sim variant anymore. Concerning the IMEI number, you can repair the second IMEI by using professional tools for flashing Samsung devices like Chimera, Z3X, etc.

      You can leave a comment here if you want remote assistance or if you need something else.


      • Thank you very much sir, please I will like to repair the IMEI, my camera app too keeps crashing which is why I want to do this all afresh.

        • So the issue is no longer about dual sim support again, right? Just to repair the IMEI on slot 2. About the camera app crashing, if it started recently, you could consider performing a factory data reset. If you want to reinstall the firmware, you can as well let me know so I can share you some links. Regarding the IMEI repair, reach me through

          • I would actually like to reinstall the firmware sir, with the hope that it will fix the crashing issue. Thanks so much.

          • Okay. Here’s a tutorial you can easily follow to install the Galaxy S9+ G965N Convert To G965F Dual Sim firmware on your device.

            G965N U2 stock firmware –
            G965X…TWRP recovery –
            G965N CONVERT TO G965F DUAL SIM –

            Steps aren’t hard if you follow it properly.

            Install Samsung USB drivers and download Odin
            Flash the stock firmware to your device
            Enable developer options and make sure OEM unlocking and USB Debugging is turned on
            Turn off the device and boot into Odin/Download mode
            Connect it to the PC and then open Odin
            Extract the TWRP file and load it via AP in Odin
            Turn off Auto Reboot under Options in Odin
            Flash the TWRP file
            After flashing, reboot to recovery mode directly using Power + Volume Up + Bixby button

            In recovery mode, click on Wipe and select Format data and type yes to confirm. This is to decrypt your internal storage

            Copy the Convert ROM you downloaded to your device’s internal storage via MTP

            After copying the ROM, click on Wipe on the recovery menu and select Advanced Wipe, then mark system, Dalvik cache, data, and cache to Swipe to wipe.
            Go back and click Install, then select the ROM zip file you copied to your device internal storage.

            Allow it to flash completely and that’s all.

            Video tutorial –

            Check if everything works perfectly.

            You can then use this for the remote IMEI repair –

    • Hi my phone os note 9 SCV40
      SM-N960J.ITS JAPANESE.can i download another firmware for another country like emirate SM-N960F? THANK YOU

  9. Hi,

    Do you have combination firmware for S6



    Binary 4

    Trying to remove reactivation lock, but I can’t find it any anywhere
    only can find binary 1, 2 and 3

  10. HI,

    I need combination firmware for

    Samsung Galaxy s6 (sm-g920i)

    Android 7

    g920i dvu4frd3

    Binary 4

    Does this even exist? All i can find is for binaries 1,2,3

    Needed for FRP BYPASS

          • Hi,

            I can bypass the samsung account, but the problem is it cannot be removed in settings anymore as reactivation lock will not allow you to factory reset anymore when it is turned on. It makes no difference if you sign in with your own Samsung account, it still asks for previous email and password of the previous Samsung account no matter what.

          • If the firmware file I provided a link to doesn’t work for you, lemmie know when a good time to chat with you is. I’ll give you a link you can follow and we’ll do a video chat so I can walk you through the proceedure to access the device,

          • Hi Cas,

            Thank you I will give it a try, but I’m not sure this will work as the
            combination file I need is for

            Samsung Galaxy s6 (sm-g920i)

            Android 7


            Binary 4

      • Cas Once again the link you are providing is a text document which sends you back to the same site to download a completely different combination firmware from the same site,. Have you even opened the downloaded file to see this?

        • It appears that you have one of the more difficult issues. These postings are getting a bit crowded and some of your posts are getting hard to locate. I apologize that some of my links and files are useless at the moment and I’ll suggest that you contact me through my personal email. I’d like another try at this. I don’t like leaving anyone with this difficulty. There are a few avenues to try. I’d like to start this over, I always do this with these kinds of issues. If you still need assistance I’m still willing to help.

  11. Hey Samsung? You people should know full well that is an incomplete tutorial for flashing firmware.
    Steps aren’t hard if you follow it properly.

    Install Samsung USB drivers and download Odin ( Most current Drivers and you should use Odin3_v3.14.1)

    Flash the stock firmware to your device. (If you have the 4File it’s not just that easy. However, this is definately not next up on the list of things to do.)
    Enable developer options and make sure OEM unlocking and USB Debugging is turned on. ( if you have access to the device yes enable developer options and turn on OEM unlock. This is your “Bootloader” it has to be unlocked or you won’t be able to flash anything.. It is not necessary to turn on USB Debugging. You are not going to be using ADB [Android Device Bridge] that’s a different way to install files)
    Turn off the device and boot into Odin/Download mode. (Boot into download mode by pressing: bixby, volume down and power).
    Connect it to the PC and then open Odin. (You can open Odin beforehand then connect the device. When you have a connection a section to the left that says ID-COM should turn blue).
    Extract the TWRP file and load it via AP in Odin. (that means click the AP box and your files show up. Navigate through it and find the TWRP you wish to apply. After it loads click the START tab at the bottom.
    Turn off Auto Reboot under Options in Odin. (none of the options should be checked and you do this before you flash it).
    Flash the TWRP file
    After flashing, reboot to recovery mode directly using Power + Volume Up + Bixby button

    In recovery mode, click on Wipe and select Format data and type yes to confirm. This is to decrypt your internal storage

    Copy the Convert ROM you downloaded to your device’s internal storage via MTP (Mass Transfer Protocal)

    (Usually I use a 4 file firmware that is in “tar. md5” format. Odin3 will flash only .tar files. md5 is the sum-check to verify the file isn’t currupted). 4files have the BL (bootloader), AP (Android Program), CP (Central Processor) and the CSC (Consumer information)

    After copying the ROM, click on Wipe on the recovery menu and select Advanced Wipe, then mark system, Dalvik cache, data, and cache to Swipe to wipe.
    Go back and click Install, then select the ROM zip file you copied to your device internal storage.

    Allow it to flash completely and that’s all.

      • I used to have so much trouble following tutorials. Almost every time something wasn’t explained. From there a whole list of things can go wrong, especially in the middle of flashing. That’s usually bad.

      • I expect this information is already widely available to anyone Samsung Flashfiles. I also think Cas is giving misleading information and links

          • Thanks Samsung. You’re right I should have known to give him the Binary 3 firmware, (that he already tried) in the first place. Later I gave him (sorry if yer not a him Brookland) a link to what he originally asked for which was the Binary 4 firmware you say wasn’t usefull. Actually I think he had it right to begin with when asking for the Austrailian G920idvu4frd3 firmware. Thats what I used to clear mine. But then my files had an issue, my bad!

    • Hi Cas,

      Thanks for helping much appreciated 🙂 but every time I go to this link you have mentioned it will not allow the download of the file, it just constantly states this below and has been like this everyday for months.

      Sorry, you can’t view or download this file at this time.

      Too many users have viewed or downloaded this file recently. Please try accessing the file again later. If the file you are trying to access is particularly large or is shared with many people, it may take up to 24 hours to be able to view or download the file. If you still can’t access a file after 24 hours, contact your domain administrator.

      • Ok finally got the file to download and it does not contain any combination firmware. It is a text document giving you another link which sends you back to same site and provides this combination firmware below which is pointless

        G920IDVS3EQA7_6.0.1 FIRMWARE BY

  12. I need stock firmware for Galaxy tab3 sm T210 with UK based csc code for compatability. The screen logo just loops/sticks and will not load.

    • This is called a Bootloop and shows that your operating system (IOS) is currupted or incomplete, so it won’t load. Reinstall firmware.

      • Cas I think it might be best if you leave the replies to site owner Samsung Flashfiles!!! I don’t mean to sound rude, but a lot of your advice and the links you are providing are false

        • I disagree. If you look at your first request you’ll see that I provided what you asked for. I also mentioned on another reply that Samsung here could not help you because your device didn’t have a binary 4 file becuase they didn’t make an update after the last one and they weren’t going to make another. You may think this is easy to do but I implore you to think otherwise. The reason I suggested that you continue this on XDA Developers is because that’s the best place for you to go and get something you can use to get past your difficulty. The only other place that may be able to help you would be GSM Developers.

      • ha!! what’s wrong with you man (and/or woman, I don’t judge)? you are all over this comment section. all you do is post false info and unusable links for people and for what? just for the sake of being an ass? get off of here and go troll YouTube, that’s what its there for. these two are just being polite but you need to get lost, go try your foolishness face-to-face with someone on the street and see how far you get. time wasting p.o.s.

  13. Okay, sorry Brookland it’s been a while since I’ve been there. I’m currently uploading the firmware to my Google Drive. It’s 1.7 Gb so it’s going to take a bit. I’ll have a link to the firmware for you this time tomorrow.

  14. Hi Cas,

    Yeah unfortunately it does not work.

    I am going to have wait as Samsung Flashfiles mentioned on their site here until
    the correct combination file for G920idvu4frd3 binary 4 is released, but thank you anyway
    for trying to help me.

      • Hi Cas, unfortunately this does not contain the combination firmware for G920idvu4frd3 binary 4….once you extract the rar file it only shows a text document as shown below which is a link taking you back to the same site and provides a totally different combination firmware than stated SAMSUNG G920IDVS3EQA7 6.0.1 FIRMWARE

        1. Flash BOOT _ Recovery_ System_ Cache From this firmware
        2.after flash to wifi go again to wifi setting
        4.choose a wifi and go to advance setting of wifi write Combinefile in api setting select (Combinefile) word, you will have (Google Assistant)
        5.go to setting then make hard reset
        6. the device will ask you for samsung account (new account) >>> (Just login with your samsung account) after that
        7. go to
        8. login with same email which you added to the device make unlock
        all done

        • I apologize that I seem to be sending you empty files. And flashing in a binary 3 file is not going to brick your phone or you would already have had that issue. Some of the unmentioned tricks you can use are firmwares from other regions such as Austrailia. Or as I mentioned in the email I sent you the firmware for G925I can also be used. Then you have to flash the proper firmware into the device to return it to the state you want. This is how difficult it can get sometimes. At this point I feel somewhat at a loss finding my files are being difficult. Samsung has policy guidelines they can’t go outside of and given the age of your device there is no other firmware for your device nor will there be in the future. My suggestion is to come to XDA Developers where we can solve your issue by use of possibly”unofficial” firmware. Contact me there and I will help you fix your problem or hand you off to someone that is more knowledgable than I. Thank you, CY

      • Cas this is misleading information you are giving. The combination file I need is for binary 4 for Samsung Galaxy S6 – SM- G920i – Combination Firmware G920IDVU4FRD3

        not 3…please stop sending me the same links to an empty folder that contains a text link to download binary 3 from the same site it is false. I suggest you open this folder in the link you are providing

        All this does is brick peoples phones

        • I’m looking into your issue Brookland and this one may be a little difficult at the moment. I’m trying to reconstruct some of my files as it appears some of them have been corrupted. And I have a back up I haven’t located yet. From what I’ve gone through Samsung here cannot help you because they haven’t made a binary 4 file nor will they since the device is pre UI 1. As I have mentioned I would like to further help you with your issue and request that you proceed to the link I will provide to our forum at XDA Developers, specifically related to the Galaxy S6 being Binary Blocked. Once you get there please define your dilemma. Thank you.

        • why are you still giving this jerk your time? he (or she, I don’t judge) is just wasting your time. they are trying to get you to brick your phone, or send them private info, or “meet up so they can help you”, or even something far worse. just stop communicating with them. he (again…or she, still not judging) is a troll.

          • You misjudge me Jeff. I am actually trying to help. If you think you know so much about these kinds of difficulties you can jump in here anytime. Otherwise I’ll suggest you refrain from stupid comments like the ones you’re posting!

  15. Hi, Ive been trying to bypass the FRP on a SM-G930AUCS4APK1. I have a really hard time finding the correct files to download. I do have the stock firmware but need help finding the correct combination files. I have watched and tried so many Youtube videos. Please help. Thank you so much, Ive been working on this for over a month now

  16. Good day

    I have Samsung A205F/DS and it stuck on the logo I tried to flash it but still stuck there, is there any firmware that I may use to solve this problem?

        • If you’re stuck on the Logo screen how did you try to flash it? This seems to indicate you are not stuck in a Bootloop. If you have access to the Recovery Menu try resetting the device to factory. If you tried that and are still stuck in a bootloop yes the stock firmware should correct the matter. If you are still stuck in a bootloop let us know what exactly you are doing and we’ll help you along.

      • This is an odd comment. If the device is stuck on the logo screen, (in a sense locked in a Bootloop) how are they supposed to flash it which requires either using ADB or Download Mode?

        • It’s not an odd comment. A device in bootloop can always get to download mode even if recovery mode fails. Flashing stock firmwares is always done via Odin mode/Download mode which is accessible without ADB.

          • I have been in contact with Mr Bennie off site. There may be some reason for a reluctance to give some specific information I’ve requested that I do not understand. The device owner admits he can access recovery which apparently is non-functional. I suspect a custom recovery was installed and subsequently rejected as Samsungs will do upon restart unlessa root is installed immediately afterwards. There is no indication of a Custom Binary Blocked by FRP lock. Owner as of yet has not relayed the Build number that can be found on either recovery or download mode. Soft Brick is a high probability. I cannot help this person without knowing the actual binary structure the device is using. Forced to give up due to lack of info. Warranty is void by policy. And I’m out of options. maybe one of you technicians would be kind enough to help him, he’s not letting me. Thank you Samsung and good luck with this one.

        • I don’t believe Samsung offers direct help unless you pay for some third party remote assistance, which usually can be very reasonable. However I’d love a more hands on approach I can settle for a video chat if you have Facebook But I don’t think I’m allowed to give a direct link to that here. Write me at [email protected]. I can’t guarantee fixing your issues being that I’m somewhat unfamiliar with the s20 but the process is usually similar. At the least I can figure out your issue so you can continue on here If I can’t help fully. This site is ruining my averages of fixes but they seem to be the more difficult ones I’ve worked with. Kinda why I’m still here, to learn more. These combination files don’t always work. And Samsung and I seem to be doing 50/50 in success.

  17. I was trying to confirm if Bennie had access to the recovery mode or download mode or was he stuck on the logo screen and couldn’t do anything. However he mentions “everything in Odin checks out”. Does this mean he already tried flashing in stock firmware and still has an issue? That would be significant in correcting the problem.

  18. What I noticed is that, when the phone reboot after using Odin is get stuck on the (Installing System Update) then it reboot again to the Samsung Logo and get stuck there.

  19. I can’t be certain about which android version it was but I am guessing 9.0 or the early version of 10. I am not sure.

    I have a similar A20 phone which runs version 10 and the updates were done in July in it, I am not sure how that might help us.

  20. Hey thanks for the support you provide! I have a Note 10+ 5G SM-N976V That I am trying to remove Knox enroller on. Used my works sim card to set up device now after reset its Knox thinks its Enrolled and I can not remove it.
    Recovery info says

    Have tried odin Nand and partition settings but upon reboot device is required to connect to wifi as it’s still recognized in knox enrollment. Thanks a million for any response!

  21. I have Samsung galaxy S7 unlocked G930U Build R16NW G930UUES8CRK2 that is rooted. It was on tracfone on tmobile, but I want to use it on Verizon. It will not accept the SIM card, it keeps telling me : “service provider update” “your devide will restart to configure features supported by the new SIM card. ” My only option is “ok” and then it reboots when I click on ok, goes into bootloader mode where I have to restart or power off. Can you advise? I’d really like to be able to fix it without factory reset, if possible, so I don’t have to lose my data. I do have it backed up, but always nicer if I don’t have to factory reset and restore the data/programs.

  22. I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 build R16NW baseband G930UUES8CRK2. It’s supposed to be compatible with t-mobile, at&t, and Verizon. I was able to use it with a t-mobile SIM, but t-mobile is horrible in this area. So, I have a Verizon SIM and it gives me a message “service provider update” saying it needs to update the phone for SIM, only option is to say ok. When I say ok, it reboots into android recovery mode.

    I’ve done backups with titanium, my backup, and smart switch (yes, I hate losing data).

    Can I install the Verizon firmware G930UUESBCTA3_G930UOYMBCTA3_VZW to fix this? Or do I need to do a factory reset?

    • Sorry for approving your previous comments late. Since your data is backed up, insert the Verizon sim card, then boot into recovery mode and *wipe cache only*, then reboot the device. Since your Galaxy S7 G930U isn’t locked to a specific carrier, you should be able yo use VZW, AT&T or Tmobile sim cards without issues.

      If after these the issues persist, kindly leave a follow up comment and I will be glad to assist you.

      • Thanks. The first thing I tried was to put the VZ sim card in, boot into recovery mode, wipe cache, and reboot. That didn’t help at all. I used Odin to load the G930UUES8CRK2_G930UOYM8CRK2_XAA and it works fine now, so I guess something had gotten kludged in the old firmware.

        All is working good now, thank you for your help and for having the firmware files here!

      • Cas,

        Yes, thank you, I had already gone through the activation steps, that was not the issue. The issue was my firmware was not accepting the SIM. Once I got the firmware issue resolved as per my previous post, all worked fine. Everything is working fine now – calls, text, etc. No issues.

        Thank you, again, for your help. No further help is needed here, thanks.

  23. Hi, can you please help me. My ph is galaxy S7 edge during factory reset cannot not boot up anymore hang at samsung logo. I use Odin & to flash but cannot connect. Odin show fail. How should I continue.

  24. Hello. My Samsung Galaxy S7 edge SM-G935F was restarted and “custom binary block by FRP lock” came at the top of the screen in red at the start up. need some help to resolve this.

  25. Hi so I got a S7 edge. I use tmobile and when I reset the phone it keeps saying use previous synced email. I know the email and password but it keeps saying use a previous one even though it is the correct one.

    The back cover says 935p. When i open the back cover a sticker says 935t. I go into recovery mode and the version says


    What combination file would i use as I confused on if it’s 935t or 935p. And also all for both are using 6.0 android which different version numbers like 1, 3, 4, 5 etc.


  26. I have NOTE 10+ 5G, model number SM-N976B, Baseband version N976NKOU1CTG2. My device is rooted i want to unroot device as original kindly help me in this regard.

  27. I’m trying to obtain the combination file for Samsung Tab E , SM-T560NU, but keep having Odin 3.12 and 3.13, state that the MD5 value is incorrect, which prevents any further use of the file(s).
    I download the rar, extract files using WinRAR, and fail. Tried it a few times.
    Just wondering if I’m having tragic luck with the download, missing a step or what. Just seems weird.

  28. Hie guys my samsung j530f is stuck on samsung logo. only official released binaries are allowed to be flashed. How can i fix this

  29. Hi, I have Galaxy S7 G935S and has a firmware 8.0.0/R16NW G935SKSU3ETB2
    lost google account and FRP locked all. I couldn’t find a combination file for this firmware. I couldn’t manage to downgrade. I am stuck please help!

  30. Hi I have some problems with my new Samsung S9 Plus I am trying to find the combination firmware for my phone but I understood that I have to consider the boot loader version. But now the problem is that with S9 the number of the baseband has been changed in such a way that your method no longer works to see which bootloader version is on a device. Nowadays the number looks like this g965fxxsbeth2. Do you happen to know the new Firmware number method or are you going to describe it later on your website? Can you please help me get my phone back up and running if it’s just a nudge in the right direction. my thanks will be enormous. You can even get a cup of coffee through PayPal as they call it these days. Best regards skip

      • Apologies I had not yet seen that I had already received an answer. I was already waiting hahahaha I downloaded it But I don’t dare to put it on it yet. I’m afraid if it’s the wrong one I’m going to be full brig soon. That is why I awaited your answer to your advice. I understood that the boot loader version was quite important. And I don’t know how to find out my bootloader version because the song looks so different. Samsung itself did not want to tell. And thanks for your answer by the way, greetings skip

      • Can you please tell me how I can tell from this code (g965fxxsbeth2) which boot loader I have and What combination of firmware I need. I am very afraid of bricking my phone if I choose the wrong firmware.


        • The bootloader loads the operating system. From what I gather you may possibly have the Austrailian or Europian version of sofware. The G965FXXSBETH2 build was released on 1/09/2020. On 1/11/2020 the build G965FXXUCFTK1 was released. As far as I can tell that is the firmware you should currently be using. Here is the complete details for both. The 1/09/2020 release,

          The 1/11/2020 Firmware can be found here.

          • First of all Thank you very much for your answer and yes that’s right I have a European device. I just bought this second-hand. And my mobile has been nagging for an update for a while, but I deliberately waited until I could root it and provide it with a new ROM. It has happened to me that it was suddenly no longer possible after firmware update.I will also download this version. But can you tell me which combination of firmware versions I could use because that’s what it’s all about.

          • Ever since XDA Developers created Odin3 it’s difficult to actually “Brick” a Samsung device although not impossible. Android 8 repartitions the device which would give you problems of sorts. If your device is Rooted there are usually two choices to follow. Liniage ROMS will update the same as stock firmware. But that’s not always an option. I have a rule of thumb. Whenever I run into problems with Custom ROMs I start over by returning the device to stock firmware..Here is a link to explain what a combination fileis used for however this doesn’t sound like your issue.
            The following link is for what is called repair firmware for your device. You’ll find yours about halfway down. And I hope you are familiar with using Odin3.This is the 4file firmware. Put each file in the respective place, Use HOME CSC not the CSC file so you can keep your App data. .

  31. I have an SM-G935FD, build no. G935FXXS8ETI2, IMEI is correct, but IMEI (2) is 0000000000000 (ng_none),

    I tried to fix the second IMEI with z3x , but failed, it shows “read data error.

    There is currently no combination firmware for g935f/fd binary 8.

    So only one SIM card is working, second SIM shows emergency calls only.

    How do I fix this?

    • hy,
      do you can tell me please how i can see with combifirmware i need with ,buildnumber g965fxxsbeth2
      I would greatly appreciate your help.

  34. hello, a dutch SM-A750FN user here. Do you know why is is as good as impossible to twrp or root this app from 2018? For 2 weeks ihave tried all kinds of solutions (xda, Youtube, samsung forum) to give the phone a custom recovery, but they ended in a bootloop. I succeede in flashing one PBRP recovery, but the phone stuck in the Samsung logo. All other attempts did not make it further than a 4 seconds Twrp logo and thats it. Here the firmware I have on the app:
    BL: A750FNXX45CUD3
    PA: A750FNXX45CUD3
    Basic: A750FNXX45CUD2
    Do you know a solution? greets Bennie

    • Its against Samsung policy for Samsung Representatives to do anything that would void any warranties or could ethically tarnish their company.
      As a Senior Member of XDA Developers I have tried to lend some assistance to this discussion with what limited knowledge that I have. It’s not prefect.
      Speaking for Samsung and myself. We are not responsible should you brick your device, or worse.
      Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) was an effort to create a more user friendly Recovery menu for samsung phones so devbice owners could access and program their devices in a variety of ways. Rooting gives the user Read and Write control of the device. There are reasons for this control such as eliminating bloatware commonly installed by whatever carrier the device is sold by. There are other ways this can be used but this is for advanced users.
      For you your issue seeem to be related to wishing to Root the device. If this is done incorrectly the device will reject all programing. Usually the device falls into what’s called a Bootloop and fails to load the operationg system.
      Whenever I have difficulties with Rooting, flashing other firmwares and I end up either bricking, placing the device into a Bootloopor any other similar difficulty a commoin rule of thumb is to return to where you started from. Flash the original official firmware into the device should remedy your issue.
      Please do not try to flash unofficial firmware into your device.There is seldom a need to do so. We at XDA Developers like to experiment with our devices to gain certain functionalities. However, this is something average users may need to be cautioned of doing.

  35. I’ve tried & eventually succeeded in flashing firmware for my A51/A516U, but the FRP lock is still there even though it passed in Odin. Can anyone provide info on what other files I need to download, extract, etc? I think I need the combo file & the binary 4 & maybe the order in which I use them? Thank you.

  36. Buenas, tengo un Samsung Galaxi sm-j415g/ds
    no encuentro el firmware para venezuela.
    le servira un de cualquier pais, es liberado (unlocked)
