EDIT: After finding the files, it runs. I don't know why a link wasn't provided at the first post, but okay.

Anyway, I can't download firmwares at all...

I click on Download, nothing happens.

Usually the Windows explorer will popup to ask for the name and location of the file to download.
Maybe a security/permission issue or there are still some files missin for Frija to run correctly.
Have you restarted Windows after installing the previously missing files?

I opened it with administrator rights, now it works...

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.

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

Not able to figure out how to use the tool
i used
SM-G998B/DS as model name
CSC i am not sure what to enter here? where i can find the CSC for S21 Ultra 512GB version EXNOS Indian Varient
Go to Settings > About phone > Software information > Software version of the service provider
The last line should show the current CSC ... three characters, e.g. mine is DBT for unbranded German device.

Maybe the new update is not yet out for INU or it is not yet uploaded to the servers.
Check again later.

BTW ... I can see that you have the OXM multi-CSC firmware. So maybe you can download the update for this OXM firmware using another country's CSC. As long as it's also using the same OXM multi-CSC rom, you can flash it by using the Home_CSC file (to stay on INU and keep your data).

No, not OXM. Another CSC which is included in this multi-CSC firmware, such as DBT.
But ... after flashing you will be stock/unrooted. So you may have to root again.

    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. ;)
