I AM NOT SURE IT WORKS FOR SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 10+ ATT CARRIER. COS IT KEEP REPLYING ATT CSC CODE NOT SUPPORTED. I TRIED AUTO AND MANUAL. I AM A NEWBIE. SOME SHOULD PLEASE HELP. MY PHONE IS STUCK ON ANDROID 10 WITH OCTOBER SECURITY PATCH. I NEED TO UPDATE THE SOFTWARE
ATT is not supported because ATT firmwares doesnt exist on Samsung servers. What you can do is start looking for other CSC and see if you can find same firmware version that ATT is currently offering as latest firmware. As long as its same firmware version it doesnt matter what CSC you used to download the firmware because all Samsung firmwares are Multi CSC, meaning it will install ATT features by recognizing your phone’s current CSC

Could someone please help me. I am trying to download the firmware for my S21 plus, I downloaded it but it dissapears from downloads, during download it shows up in my folder, once it is downloaded it is no where to be found, I have tried downloading it several times now, and once it is completed, it is gone. Any ideas?

same exact thing happens to me. Where the hell does this download to? It vanishes from your computer once it says download complete
Can both of you look at your Documents folder and see if its there? Please report back if its there, otherwise maybe your antivirus if deleting it (not sure why it would do though)?

Yesterday I tried to download new firmware G986BXXU7DUC7/G986BOXM7DUC7/G986BXXU7DUC7 for my S20+ SM-G986B with Frija 1.4.3.0. It starts like always but stops at 2096 Mb. The file is 6421 Mb.
Tried many different times. Never had this problems before using it from Novenber 2020.
Today i tried to download G986BXXU7DUC7/G986BOXM7DUC7/G986BXXU7DUC7 PHN (Netherlands) and it worked again like it used to work before.

If you know your Phone Model and your CSC you can use Auto. If you use Manual you put in Phone Bl.

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

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

When I use manual mode for my SM-G9730 it always finds the next version.
To download the right one I need to enter the next firmware.
Just fyi

guys, is there some way to check the CSCs included on a downloaded fw that is multi csc? I was going to instal COO on my s20+ but I need that to have a ZTO included, the COL includes it but I don't know about COO and this updates faster than the ZTO and COL

Where can I find C++ 2008 x86 redistributable? I have the 2010 redistributable already. Direct link to MS site says it is no longer available.

    Do you even need it though? I don't remember going through any loops. I had the latest windows 10 update.

    Windows does not necessarily install old C++ packages (this is good so it does not crowd up the comp with unneeded tools). I found it however and now Frija works.

      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. ;)
