Here is the factory binary / combination rom for the SM-G973F. I currently have both the 973F/970F on hand and both combinations for them .

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CGL...sjHrVh60I/view

However, there seems to be a new protection method against flashing combination / factory devices on these phones. I attached a screenshot of the error in Odin. The screenshot text is not very clear but the message is "Please get the approval to use factory binaries (BOOTLOADER)"
(But however if you remove the sboot.bin the other partitions will also fail anyway )

I am working on modifying the CSC and regions to enable certain features for custom roms but I must first bypass this issue, if even possible. If anyone has any ideas I don't mind risking bricking the device to test something out.

The part about removing the bootloader - is that part of the actual message as well?

No solution yet, Samsung implemented factory binary protection in the S10 it seems, old workaround does not work

So are you saying that if you repack it without the sboot, it'll give the same message, but with a different partition in the parentheses?

Exactly this. It seems that every factory/combination partition is signed as such and the device will not allow it to flash. I tried flashing all partitions 1 by 1, among other things. No luck so far.

We'll probably need a modded/leaked Odin then. Can you flash stock firmware with existing Odin?

Are all the Factory partitions LZ4s?
