Hello! sw rev. check fail(bootloader) device 8 binary 6 means that the ROM you have downloaded has a binary 6 while the device has a binary 8. In Android, or at least Samsung phones you cannot go to a lower binary than the one present in your device. Basically the only fix I believe is to download a ROM that has a binary of 8. If you do not know what binary it has I will leave a screenshot showing which number signifies a binary (Only mind the number in the binary, the U is a part of that but you just need to look at the number when you're downloading the correct ROM).

You have updated your device to Binary 8. Which means you have an updated bootloader. Samsung no longer allows the bootloader to be downgraded so you are stuck there. Anyways there's no worries. There are alot of ROMs and mods to use that you may enjoy.

Flash last ROM latest release of your country
Test latest releases of your country
Downgrade not possible

Hi. Thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately after successfully uploading the latest software from my region (XEO) nothing changes. The phone is rebooting and it's still looped.

Region - firmware:
sammobile.com/samsung/galaxy-j6/firmware/SM-J600FN/XEO/download/J600FNXXU8CTF5

I can go to Download Mode and Recovery.
I guess there is something wrong with Recovery.

The recovery on my phone looks like this:

Android Recovery
samsung/j6ltexx/j6lte
10/QP1A. 190711.020/J600FNXXU8CTF5
user/release-keys
Android Recovery
samsung/j6ltexx/j6lte
10/QP1A. 190711.020/J600FNXXU8CTF5
user/release-keys



Sorry, but I connected to the topic and I think I should start a new topic with my problem.
I am asking the moderator for information or to move my posts to the right place. Thank you.

I cannot find a Saudi Arabia KSA region rom for my SM-J730F ( I can't use my sim because of that)
The rom I can find on sammobile is at u4, and my phone has s7 so it gives the error. However there is another rom that is latest but that rom is Saudi Arabia ACR :( Please help me
