I have Samsung Galaxy Note 10+. At the back of the phone it says the model is SM-N975FD 256G. However, in the software, the model is given as SM-N976N/DSM, the CSC is N975FOXM4CTE9, CP is N976NKOU1BSLA and AP IS N976NKSU1BSLB.

This phone seems to be working with most functions, but the S-Pen has connection problems and the phone cannot connect to Samsung servers for automatic updates.

I am trying to correct this by flashing official stock firmware to ensure its does not fail to get automatic updates. I was about to flash N975F....... in an effort to match the model written at the back of the phone believing that my vendor sold me a device that was tampered with.

Will I be right to flash N975F...... replacing the N976N....?

Please help. I want a phone that is based on official firmware. Thank you in advance

SM-N975f is the Note 10+ and SM-N976n is the Note 10+ 5G.

Type *#0*# and go to version, you will see the model here.

To be one more step sure, type *#06# to see your IMEI number, then compare with the given in the box.

Thank you SubwayChamp. There is indeed something fishy about this phone. The model is given as SM-N976N as mentioned earlier. However, the serial number given by *#06# is different from the serial number stuck at the back of the phone.

So my question now, which is the true model for this phone? How come it has both N975F and N976N in its firmware packages?

If I have to use 1 type of firmware, which 1 should I go for 975F or 976N?

Unfortunately, I do not have the box - I will have to hunt for it

Your assistance is most appreciated

Thank you

I believe the issues I am experiencing are a direct result of these mismatches. The S-PEN is not connecting and its not getting updates. I really want a phone that updates on its own automatically

By dialing *#06# you get the IMEI, did you see the IMEI in the back cover too, or you opened the back cover? Can you type your IMEI in a site like this https://imei.org/ or similar? And see what it throws.

If the AP and CP partitions were flashed with the firmware for N976N then I have to assume that you can incline to this firmware as they're the most important parts, probably the last user flashed the CSC for N975F to have better signal and regional compatibility.

Also, you can check in the stock recovery screen, and see which original firmware came with.

I have checked the box in which I received the phone. The label shows that its SM-N975FD Samsung Galaxy Note10+. The IMEI number is the same as that returned by *#06#.

I suspect the phone was tampered with and loaded with Note10+5G firmware for some reason.

Given this scenario, can I flash this phone with Note10+ (SM-N975F). I am afraid of bricking the phone, but I just want my phone to be official.

Please assist.

Thank you

The

Checking on IMEI.org shows a Galaxy Note 10+

Also the back label and the box label shows the model SM-N975F which is again Note10+.

I am tempted to try out the Note10+ firmware. I pray that I will still have a working phone at the end of it all

Thank you very much. I will update on my progress
Probably the irrefutable question, how much did you pay for? (don't tell me how much) Is it worth for a Note 10+ or for the 5G version? It might be a noticeable difference. I'm inclined to think is the N10+.

Both firmware are compatible although not totally suitable, for any of them, just may encounter some glitches or unexpected results/behavior.

Use a different Odin version, a modified one like this https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/patched-odin-3-13-1.3762572/ if the problem persists probably you need to use the re-partition option as it seems your device was previously flashed with a non-proper firmware.

I took a lot of time to give feedback, I had been away and did not try the flashing until today.

Your guidance have been very helpful Subway Champ. I hope you can still be patient with me.

Unfortunately, I still cannot flash the phone. I have tried several versions of ODIN with various error messages. When I check re-partition, it takes me a step further, but still fails with an error that it cannot open a specified file.

It seems a restriction related to your PC/OS.

- Move the firmware to your main directory and rename it as simple as GN10 (for example).
- Run the tool as admin.
- Check the antivirus.
- Uncheck re-partition option.
- Use a different Windows version.
- Use a different PC.
- Try the firmware from GN10+.
- Try firmware from both models.

Thank you. Let me try all that and see what happens. Thanks a lot

I believe the original case was broken and replaced with the wrong model number.
I had this problem from purchasing a unit on Ebay. When I contacted the seller, he said the case had been replaced with a different model unit and that they do this all the time. I requested and received a full refund, (primarily because the case was a little lose and did not match the model displayed on the software.
