All the files are extracted from stock official Samsung firmware releases.
Take the file that suits you best, only for your device variant.

Read carefully the instructions. I am not responsable for anything you do with your device.
Prerequisites:
  • download Odin v3.13.1
  • download and install Samsung Drivers (if you have them installed you can skip this step)
  • download BL (bootloader) and CP (modem) for your device variant.
Instructions:
  1. Switch off the phone
  2. Use Home+Volume Down+Power to enter Download Mode and connect the device to usb
  3. Open Odin and untick autoreboot in "options" tab. Also make sure that your device is detected
  4. Put BL_*.tar.md5 file into BL tab
  5. Put CP_*.tar.md5 file into CP tab
  6. Click Start
  7. Wait 1 min and manually reboot your phone into Download mode using Home+Volume Down+Power buttons, but when the warning appears, hit volume down (Cancel-restart the device)
  8. Use Phone INFO app to check if update was succesful.
  9. If it didn`t worked, redo the steps from #1 more careful this time.
Downloads:Latest Oreo releases:
*based on build date/changelist

For some of the devices you can find Nougat bootloader and modem as well, will try to add for all of them depending on the time i have.
If i forgot a device/firmware version, tell me and i will try to add it.

Questions and answers:
Q: Should i install latest bootloader/modem? Why?
A: Yes, bootloader and modem usually can contain security patches, hotfixes, modem improvements and even more, so it should bring general improvement

Q: What to do if odin refuses to flash the files?
A: Check if you downloaded proper package for your phone variant, check if downloaded files have tar.md5 extension, check if the phone is detected by Odin, check if you have the specific Odin package from the Mega folder, it has support for new lz4 format included by Samsung.

Q: New bootloader and modem caused me x issue(s), how can i fix it?
A: You can always flash older/newer bootloader and modem and see if the issue is fixed.

Q: My phone doesn't recognise the sim inserted, i have no baseband in settings and no imei, what to do?
A: Make sure the bootloader/modem installed is the proper one according to android version of firmware installed on the phone. (Nougat bl and cp for nougat roms / Oreo bl and cp for Oreo roms)

Q: Loading
A: Loading

As i said in Q/A, you should update them, this can only bring general improvement, usually they contain hotfixes, security patches, nothing that can harm your device.

You need oreo files and sadly, samsung didn't released yet that for Canada users. I will try today some things, maybe i can make the rom work with nougat files. Regards
