@shaggyskunk unfortunately to much peeps have to much time to post meaningless dispensable and space wasting answers. :( my question is still unanswered. maybe a 'yes' or a 'no, version G930FXXU2... is the last one for N' is to high-qualified for xda.

like I said - Visit sammobile.com - Search for your device in Firmware & you will find the latest available Firmware for your device & region - Instead of posting your question again - Just search for it yourself - You're not expecting someone else to do it for you.... are you?

In the two plus days since you posted your question - You could have found your answer within a couple of minutes... just sayin'.

hey board. is it correct that 'G930FXXU2DRA7' was the last N modem?

It looks like it isnt. But we don't know if this its the latest modem for your country, because without knowing from which country this is, we see only the newest firmware on sammobile. So you can just look for yourselve. In generall we do these steps to get the newest modem:
1. Goto:
2. Search your country
3. Download firmware
4. Then:
a) install complete firmware
b) extract modem and/or bootloader, make it flashable by odin​
5. flash

At step 2 look for your "G930FXXU2DRA7". @Tom Mix maybe this helped you out

@shaggyskunk
ur postcount definitely needs a purge out ;)
@chris
sorry. i missed to mention that i am looking for the latest ''G930FXXU____'' modem.
as stated by redjamesg's infos, that is an european/nordic unbranded modem.
so far i havent flashed any other than XXU modems to my devices.

after reading ur post i have to admit: that is not an option to me.
thanks to the skank the world now knows: ppl do have lifes! :D
unfortunately no one knows the latest N XXU modem, or nobody cares at all. so the question stays unanswered...
@Tom Mix maybe this helped you out
indeed! at last to see there are not only 'post-count-junkies' out there ;)

If you need the EU unbranded, I would search for the NEE region or BTU.

Need help, messed my g930f modem, odin won't reflash, need files!

Hello,

I'm running Nougat on my s7 g930f it's using the tgp rom. In preparation for an oreo upgrade I atempted to flash an odin-zip file I found on LightRom's page, thinking it would give me a modem update. This was an extremely bad idea. Now my system does still boot, but I have no signal at all, my phone number, base band, IMEI, mobile network, etc all show as unknown under settings, about phone and the various status checks. Now when I atempt to go in to odin again to flash another modem update now I'm told that the atempt has failed. I'd appreciate some help. What file do I need to get the bl and the cp file? I'm running twrp 3.2.3, and i'd like my signal back.

I just ran phoneinfo and found out my original and active csc codes are both the same as TMB, my country code is TMB-USA. I hope this helps. The filename I atempted to flash, which reported as success and I wish I had found this forum first, is an all-in-one bootloader/modem called:

BL_G930FXXS4ESAE_CL14843133_QB21796491_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5

I believe from reading posting 1 in this forum that this xxs has branded my phone something, which was not my intention, it's an international unlocked s7 g930f, and I need to fix this. I'm thinking to now flash via twrp, which I've got version 3.2.3 installed. I'd appreciate any suggestions as to how to unblock this failure now of odin to flash files, so I can flash via odin the file I just got from this forum which is:

CP_G930FXXU2DRB6_CL648265_QB8952207_SIGNED.tar (1).md5

or where to get the right zip file to flash in twrp to get this fixed.

Some urgency!
Thanks.
Dave.

Do you have a Nandroid including the EFS?
You said that your device no longer Boots - So I'm curious as to how you know that the baseband is "unknown"?
My first suggestion would be to Restore your last Nandroid including the Modem & EFS.

If you want to update the Modem (what I would do) Is Download the Stock Samsung Firmware for your device to your computer & then Extract the Modem & Flash it with either TWRP as a zip - Or Flash the tar file with Odin (my first choice).

You should always have the latest Stock Samsung Firmware on your computer for the "just in case" moments...

Hopefully these initial questions & suggestions will be of help ?

follow up to boot loader and modem, s7

@shaggyskunk Thanks for your reply. My phone does in fact now boot that's how I know that base band IMEI, and the other referenced information is unknown.

I do not have a nandroid backup. What I do have is an efs taken about a year or so ago with a program called efsbackup I believe it was made by an arab xda-developer. It made two .tar.gz files one called efs and a date.tar.gz the other radio and a date.tar.gz. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get it to restore, that was my first thought.

I can't get odin to flash, that was my first thought as well, it's looking at me and seeing failed something .bin file. That's why I was asking about how to flash these files in twrp as I do have that and it is working. Could you tell me how to acquire or make the needed twrp-flashable bootloader and modem zip files?

Thanks.
Dave.

---------- Post added at 04:16 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:30 PM ----------

Adding to my previous messages I've got my efs backup tar.gz files they are .img files when extracted. I've got a file efs.img and a file radio.img can I flash these with twrp?

making progress but still have sick phone

Hello,
I've got a very sick s7 g930f, it's an international unlocked version. I'm in the US and using tmobile as the cell carrier. In preparation for an oreo upgrade I'm running a rooted nougat rom tgp with twrp 3.2.3, I decided to update my modem and bootloader. Well, very very bad idea, lost signal, can't dial, no IMEI number, no mobile network, no phone number, all of that is showing as unknown. I had a backup of my efs partition, I took it about a year ago and it made two files one efs date.tar.gz and radio date.tar.gz, extracting both of those revealed a efs.img and a radio.img file.
I atempted first to reflash a known stock modem and bootloader, these failed, until I restore the efs.img image to the efs partition. I did it like:

dd if=/external_sd/efs.img of=/dev/block/platform/155a0000.ufs/by-name/EFS

that worked, in and of I could now flash the stock nougat modem, this went without a problem. The problem now is the bootloader that was flashed it's bl_xxs which means my phone now thinks it's branded, which is probably why it isn't working. I need to flash a bl_xxu unbranded image and hopefully things will work. where do I get an unbranded bl_xxu nougat img file and how do I flash it when I do to the boot partition? And how do I flash that radio.img file and to which partition? Help appreciated.
Thanks.
Dave.

930F Modem on 930W8

Hi everyone, I just want to know if it's possible to flash a 930F modem on a 930W8 device. They have exactly the same hardware and I tried with odin but it didn't work... Do you have a solution ?

Not exactly sure why you would want to - Possible explanation might be if you are residing in the EU - But still I wouldn't expect to see any real benefit & more likely to experience issues with VoLTE - WiFi Calling etc - I wouldn't do it ?

The explanation is that my phone is a 930W8 and i want it to be 930F. I succed to change the CSC on a custom rom so i'm able to make some calls and have network but it's really low network and sometimes it cuts... I think it's an issue with the modem that is still canadian (930W8). Do you have any idea how I could change it ?

First of all - Where are you using the phone - ie: What country or region?
Regardless I can take my Canadian SM-G965W and use it perfectly well pretty much anywhere that the SM-G965F is available - So your explanation still doesn't make sense - At least from the information you have provided to date.

I'm from France and with the stock ROM of my SM-930W8 I couldn't have network at all. As I explaied to you, I succeeded to Flash a custom ROM and get the right CSC file. BUT, my network is still low, and I think it's due to my CP file (modem). So I would like to change it to a 930F CP file.

That's strange - I've been through most of Europe - The US & Asia with my Canadian devices & never had any issues with connectivity... I guess (hope) that if you're living in France that you have a French Carrier & you're using the APN for your Carrier?
There's no reason why you need to Flash the F variant Modem in order to get Voice or Data!
If you're determined to potentially mess up your phone - You can try using Patched Odin to flash the F Modem in Download Mode...
I know quite a few people in North America who have purchased various F variants beck of the Unlocked Bootloader & Didn't have issues (other than with VoLTE & WiFi Calling which is expected) Without Flashing the North American Modems.... I suggest that you purchase the F variant if you are planning on staying in France & are hell bent on the F Modem....

    This thread is mainly created because some of the developed custom roms requires certain Modem or Boot Loader versions, and it also coveres the desire to update and keep the phone updated to latest Modem and Boot Loader.

    The files made available here are extracted from the official Samsung Firmware made available from SamMobile website, it will save you from downloading in access of 2GB of data with average download speed of 15KB.
    Mainly it will be firmware specified for the EU market, as I am located here and will be using these firmwares, if you want your specific region included, I would appreciate if you would make sure to make the files available as they become updated for your region, since I don't intend to waste time on something I am not going to be using.

    Since I intend not to delete any of the files, it is also essentially a resource with all the different Modem and Boot Loader versions released.

    User Guide:
    • Extract latest version of Odin to your computer.
    • Install Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers for Odin to find your device.
    • Boot your phone into download mode, by pressing [Volume down] + [Home] + [Power]
      - Once you reach the Download mode warning screen, press [Volume Up] to continue.
    • Open Odin

      • [1]Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
        [2]Place the desired BL file in the [BL] slot.
        [3]Place the desired CP file in the [CP] slot.
        [4] Go to the Options section and make sure Auto Reboot, Re-Partition and F. reset time are unmarked.
        [5]Push [Start]
      • Once odin reports "Success..." message in the Message box, boot your phone into download mode once again and repeat step 1 - 5 once more.

    Some have complained that you shouldn't flash BL and CP without flashing appropriate CSC file, how ever I have never had any issues with only flashing BL and CP.

    File versioning:
    Some of you might be unaware of how the Samsung versioning of the Boot Loader and Modem is layed out, I will try to give an accurate description of what is what in the versioning.

    The filename displays the version as G930FXXU1APDU, the layout of the versioning is as follows:
    • G930F - Identity of the phone supported
    • XXU1A - Identity of location [XX] - European location - Unbranded supplier branded
      [*]P - Year of version (here 2016)
      [*]D - Month of version (here 4.th [April])
      [*]U - Compilation number, goes from 1 - 9 and A - Z
