I tried to located the n900a csc, but all I have been able to find is a package containting the AP and CP files, a BL file, and PIT file. I don't know if one of these are supposed to subsitute for a csc but I assumed not and didnt want to take any chances.
So as it stands I am sitting here wondering what I can do. Do I have to wait for some official release of the firmware? the only one on the samsung mobile site is mi9 (which I of course didnt realize until paying for a terafile subscription to download it) or is there N900A MJ5 files floating around and I just cant find them?
If anyone can offer me some insight, I would greatly appreciate it.
1. According to the 'Firmware Browser...' (see attached screenshot below), atm there is only BMI9 for N900A model.
2. MI9 is good for you to URDLV without tripping Knox. As URDLV works only with the firmware below MJ3. So MI9 is ok, MJ5 may NOT work with URDLV.
So you better download MI9 firmware and go ahead.
