Hey guys

I hope you enjoy our service. Use it as you would any other search engine. Often times it works best if you search for model number (i.e. SM-A800IZ), rather than device name. Also, here are some advanced search tips to get you started:
  • +"galaxy s7" usa
    • Display all firmwares for the Galaxy S7 and put those with region USA in the top
  • +"sm-t805" -germany
    • Display all firmwares for the Galaxy Tab S except those from Germany
  • +marshmallow +switzerland
    • Display all Marshmallow firmwares from Switzerland

Let us know what you think.
PS: The site is not yet responsive in design (we're working on it)

Hm... You're right, this firmware didn't exist... we just added it with the region CHC to the database. If you have any more questions let us know.

It's SM-G930F. But I agree, an autocomplete function would be great.

Hey guys! The site looks good but I think that a good thing to add would be "fluid" tables (and structures) because now they don't fit in the phone screen and its impossible to read all the columns of the firmware table. By adding that you're site will be accesible for every phone and not only pc's.

Yup, things have been really picking up on our end so we're working right now on strengthening our servers. If there's ever any lag or downtime, it should fade away in the next few days.

At the moment, the search requires that you enter the full model number, and if a letter or a number is missing, results can be very different. But I love the idea and we'll definitely look into ways to make our search engine smarter

Thank you I agree!

We're actually working on the responsive design as well, so that it looks well on mobile devices. Although that might take a few weeks. On the bright side, we'll be releasing our app in the next few days and it's looking great, we're certainly aiming to make mobile experience very pleasant.

Nice website...
Interesting project ... and now here's some constructive criticism, obviously meant in good faith for possible improvements.
Pertains to the website, since I haven't tried the Android app yet.

1. Sometimes downloading seems to be slow / down / overloaded servers, not sure what's the actual cause, but tried it with and without a download manager using Chrome.

2. Firmware availability limitation in SamFirm / Samsung Server seems to be also present here (ex. SM-G930A / G935A unavailable). Suppose not much can be done about it since Samsung is simply not serving it up.

3. Would be helpful to have each file designated as HOME or FACTORY depending on the type of firmware package. Factory version is much more preferred/useful.

Overall a great looking, and informative website.

'tsit for now,
BillA
