How to Find Correct Firmware for Samsung Device?



How to Find Correct Firmware for Samsung Device?
There are different binary versions of each model number in the Samsung device software, as well as a unique way to find the correct firmware synchronized with the device. In this article, I will explain how to find the right firmware file for the Samsung devices.

We need to know some information from our mobile phone. It is imperative to know, such as the mobile model number, and binary number. Below is a list of information that we need to know before looking for a firmware file compatible with a Samsung device:
  • Model Number.
  • Binary Number.
  • CSC (Country Specific Code).
  • Date of Release and Revision.
How Do You Get the Required Information from Your Phone?
Open the dialpad application and type "*#1234#" on your phone's dialer. Once you dial the firmware version information code, you will get the AP, CP, and CSC file version info like below:
  • AP: A700FDXXU1BOJD
  • CP: A700FDXXU1BOI8
  • CSC: A700FDOLB1BOJ1
All we have to do now is read the AP and CSC files code.

The meaning of the AP (PDA) file code is:

Model Region Binary Year Month Revision
A700FD XX U1B O J D

The meaning of the CSC (Country Specific Code) file code is:

Model CSC Build Version and Security BIT Date of Release and Revision
A700FD OLB 1B OJ1

My device firmware model number, binary version, country name, release date, and revision is:
  • A700FD -> Phone model -> [A700FD]
  • U1B -> Version and security BIT -> [Binary 1]
  • OLB -> CSC Build -> [Malaysia]
  • OJD -> Date of release and revision -> [October 2015, Revision 13]
  • Once you collect your device firmware detail like above, you can effortlessly search for the exact firmware file of your Samsung device on the Internet. Before downloading, you need to compare all the collected info data with the details of the firmware that you have searched on the Internet.
