Hi, I'm new to the forum and was wondering if someone could help me just clarify a few things specific to my S9 that I am trying to remove frp from.
After trying a lot of the youtube guides on bypassing the FRP using the "easy tools" and failing I thought of reflashing the OS. Since that doesn't exactly just work and you need a combination file, I was looking to figure out what combo file I need. The number from recovery menu is 10/QP1A.###/G960WVLS7ETH1 and the IC on the back of the phone is 649E-SMG960U.
I found a tutorial saying you can make the combination file from the official firmware, but after getting that from SamMobile I could not find the sboot.bin.Iz4 in BL section. Then I tried looking online for a faster download of my firmware but none had the exact numbers right or the correct files in BL. (They had the right Ap files though). I also tried looking for a combo file directly but the same problem is I don't know the exact numbers/version that I need to make sure its correct for me to apply it into ODIN.
I found a few links to combo files but they are all usually for android 8
Download Samsung SM-G960W Combination File (original flash file, rom) without any password for Free. We also provide the combination file for all Samsung devices.
I just need to figure out what the software version (or baseband version?). Some threads say your phone model number must be the same and others say it only matters for the processor to be the same. Can I download the G960U files instead of a G960W or am I reading the wrong thing. Also can someone help with the bootloader version / build version. I think it is bootloader version 7 but its in place of the U that is written in most guides. and then the revision would be 1 right?
Just would like some confirmation that I am looking for the right file. By what I have looked into so far the combo file with version G960U + android 8, bootloader version 7, and revision 1 will work regardless of the other numbers.
or does it have to be G960W? F? X? any letter that has the same processor? Anything else I need to make sure of, is there an easier way to remove frp?
Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
