THIS IS THE FULL BOOTLOADER, MODEM, RPM, AND TZ UPDATE.

this contains the NON-HLOS.bin modem.bin sbl2.mbn tz.mbn aboot.mbn rpm.mbn sbl3.mbn

It is recommended for CM to update the entire images images, we constantly update kernel so it is recommended to not fall behind on not updating full images.
this is an extension unknownforce tar.

in odin, check update phone bootloader and put it in pda

When I went to Odin this my PhoneBootloader Update box was greyed out.

So, in order to update the bootloader we need to edit the .ini file that's in the Odin 3.07 folder.

Open the .ini with Notepad and change the line below

PhoneBootUpdate=0k

Change to.

PhoneBootUpdate=1

Save the file and start Odin. The box will still be greyed out but it will be checked.

Proceed with the update.

Once you are finished with the bootloader update it is recommended to revert the changes that you have made to the .ini

Thanks for noobnl for all the help.

AWESOME....Im an idiot and i was able to do that....great work and thank you...much appreciated...tried another method last night and failed....took me 2 hours....this took 5 mins....lol should have been patient

One question though I saw in QBKings video that after the update you should be able to go to Application Manager and move apps to the SD card but I dont see that option...I did a reboot...am i doing something wrong?

Maybe i am doing something wrong or maybe its because i am running FreeGS4 but none of the few things that changed with the MF9 update are availabe....like the smart pause button in setting, add apps to sd card, and the legabilty option.....is it cause i am on a rom based on MDL...will this change when my rom gets updated?

My build number just says FreeGS4 v2.0.....My baseband and Software version both say MF9 but i cant move anything to the SD card and im thinking/hoping its only cause our Rom hasnt been updated...can someone confirm or deny this? That once our rom gets updated we will have full function of MF9

This cannot be the "full upgrade". At 30MB how can that be compressed from 360mb download OTA. I believe this is just the modem and kernel.

People, it's the full firmware, not the operating system. Normally, we just update the modem and other small bits, but this includes the bootloader and other smaller partitions that get overlooked if you only flash the updated OS through a zip. If you took the OTA as it was pushed to your device, you do not need this.

I must be doing something wrong. I edited the .ini to allow bootloader update. Put in PDA slot and hit start. It passes after ~16 secs then reboots and nothing is changed. Baseband is still MDL. Anyone know what I'm missing? I'm using Odin v3.07 and have tried different ports/comps.
Also on FreeGS4 with TWRP 2.6.0.0.

EDIT: Fixed by turning device off then booting into Download Mode instead of rebooting to download mode.

After downloading the 3.07 odin version, I edited the configuration settings for the program to check "bootloader update".

I select PDA and go to find the mf9fullupdate.tar.md5 on my desktop, and the program can't find it; I'm slightly stuck now.


EDIT: After ten seconds of posting this, I realized that I had to unzip the file xP

Got it!!

AND WORKS PERFECTLY! Thank you for this!

Great job.

This worked fine. Just a note to all. Once you get it started please wait for it to finish. It takes about a little over 2 minutes to get done. Once it's OK in the odin window. You will need to disconnect the phone and either pull the battery or hold the power button down till it turns off. Once that is off you can then turn it back on and it should be updated.


I love this. :victory:

    I made a video on how to do this! I went from MDL (CM10.1) to MF9 (CM10.1)

    It was very freaking easy! Just follow directions, and you'll be good to go!

    THANKS NOOBNL! :D
