tried downloading and extracting Frija, then running it. Nothing happens. On Windows 10.

Unclear why it won't run, as I note no installation instructions. I assumed it's a standalone .exe that should just be "extract>double click" operation. Is there more to getting it running than is disclosed in the first post?

Just double click should be enough to run the application.

Make sure you have visual c++ 2008 redist and visual c++ 2010 redist installed

Both are installed. Unless there's a particular version of each that must be installed and the one's I have are different.

Its probably me not doing something right. But Frija does not recognize my phone. Does it need to be in recovery? Debug mode etc?
You're misunderstanding what this tool is for, my friend. You have to manually enter your phone model and csc code and then download the firmware for your device with this program then you can use Odin to flash this downloaded firmware to your device.

Hey Guys :)

Frija is a new tool (successor of now depreciated tool SamFirm) which allows users to download latest firmware for their device which can be flashed with Odin.
Frija can download Firmware for any Samsung Devices at High Speed.
Auto mode detects any Samsung Phone Model and CSC and finds all the required information directly from Samsung Server.
Frija downloads firmware directly from Samsung FUS (Firmware Update Server) without any third party websites being involved. It can pause/resume firmware downloads, even after network interruption, or app restart (if download was interrupted).
Frija comes with built in Support form, through which you can reach out to developer about any issues or bugs. Frija has built in App Updater, whenever new release of Frija is available users will be able to update to latest version of the app.
Frija does not have any Background or Startup services, which some users might be concerned about.
It also comes with Night theme, for those who prefer Night Mode on the app

Sjov kendsgerning om Frija: Frija er opkaldt efter kone til Odin, der kan se fremtiden (In Norse Mythology) kan downloade nyeste firmware, der kan blinkes ved hjælp af Odin, der bruger Heimdall (En protokol, der forbinder til en mobilenhed via USB) og Loke (lav -niveau software, der kører på enheden). Det tilføjede lidt et manglende stykke til navngivningskonventionen, som Samsung har.

Dette værktøj blev oprettet af wssyncmldm med bidrag fra CrazyApe og eragon5779 . Devs modtager al supportmeddelelsen direkte, og de arbejder aktivt med appen for at rette eventuelle fejl eller problemer.: s

Opdateringer:
BEMÆRK: Automatisk opdatering har fejl i version 1.1.1 og skal opdateres manuelt ved hjælp af den nye zip-fil, der er offentliggjort i dag


Ordskift:

1.1.2
• Forbedret firmwaresøgning.
• Rettet problem, hvor firmware ikke var tilgængelig for gyldig enhed og CSC.
• Opdateret nogle meddelelsesstrenge, der vises til brugeren

1.3.0
• Fixet dekrypteringsproblemer af enc2-krypteret firmware
• Automatisk opdatering er endelig rettet, kræver ikke download af opdatering manuelt efter denne opdatering

1.4.1
• Tilføjet fejlmeddelelse, hvis Microsoft Redist-pakker mangler
• Nye indstillinger
• Fjernet supportbeskedfunktion og tilføjet ny Issue Tracker URL
• Samlet forbedring af brugergrænsefladen
• Tilføjet indstilling for at deaktivere CRC-kontrol

1.4.2
• Forbedret firmware-søgemetode
• Tilføjet understøttelse af Dual Sim-modellen
• Tilføjet Frija salvie nummer i Om siden
• Indlæs Samsung dll-biblioteker på en effektiv måde
• Fast undertekst til on / off på siden Indstillinger

1.4.3
• Rettet problem med firmwareopslag og -download

Worked well for me, in the sense that it confirmed that there is not yet any Android 11 (Samsung One UI 3.0) software available for my S20+ running on Google Fi!

@invmini Would you please help me understand the output on this post right here?

I've always failed using "Manual" values before when searching for a Beta or Test firmware, however right now, i'm having some interesting results.
This is for stock firmware updates, it will not find beta/test firmware. Now Beta has finished you'll find it will pick up Android 11 stable quite fine if the OTA released for your model.

Although the firmware is present on SamMobile :
Product code TMH
PDA G988BXXU5CTKG
CSC G988BOXM5CTKF
Phone G988BXXU5CTKF
Frija cannot find it both in auto and manual mode, the message "Error 102" appears

Having an issue downloading the new Android 11 for Sm-G9860 CSC - TGY. It will download the entire file then at the end it will say checking CSC and then CSC doesn't match. I've tried twice and same result. Haven't had any issues up until now.

Finally got it downloaded bu loading AP into ODIN gives me MD5 Hash value is invalid. Sigh

Fun fact about Frija: Frija is named after wife of Odin who can see future (In Norse Mythology) can download latest firmwares which can be flashed using Odin which uses Heimdall (A protocol that connects to a mobile device over USB) and Loke (low-level software running on the device). It kinda added a missing piece to the naming convention Samsung has.

This tool was created by wssyncmldm with contribution from CrazyApe and eragon5779. Devs receive all the support message directly and they are actively working on the app to fix any bugs or issue. :p

Error 102 every single time. I have everything installed (Dot net, c++), and it just doesn't work. Someone told me I needed to delete some folder or archive from my PC in order to make it work but I can't remember what it was

    For now the software is for Windows only. As for now the developer doesn't have any plans to release the code to the public.

    That's sad to hear. I''m not willing to setup a windows installation somewhere just to run some closed source code. Opening the source would make it possible for others to port the code to linux or at least have a look at it and audit it. Not only for security concerns but also to hunt bugs and report them. I'm really uncomfortable running closed source software from a random guy on some random internet forum.

    Same. That's why I'm here. I've used it in the past with no problems, but showed up as a virus yesterday. I wonder what's up, back to using SamFirm for now.

    Pretty nasty too if you look up what that virus does too, I'm staying clear, I'm only here because I returned a UK S10 plus exynos which I had beta 10 on in favour of a G9750 China with Qualcomm and now the members app is not giving me the Android 10 beta notice even though it's supposed to be available for this model.

    New version 1.4.2 is out and your virus issue should be gone with new update/release. OP will be updated when @invmini is online
    You can download it form here: https://github.com/wssyncmldm/frija/releases/download/v1.4.2/Frija-v1.4.2.zip

    v1.4.2 Update Notes:
    Code:
    • Improved Firmware search method
    • Added support for Dual Sim model
    • Added Frija sage number in About Page
    • Load Samsung dll libraries in efficient way
    • Fixed sub text for on/off in Settings Page

    Will there be a linux build or is it windows only?
    Also it would be nice to have the sources available to audit the code and make sure it does no nasty stuff. ;)
