Hello guys

I have created a little tool to download and check latest Samsung firmwares since it seems CheckFUS is not working anymore.
14aj4pi.jpg


To get Region code and other info from your phone use Phone INFO ★Samsung★ app by @vndnguyen. The download function features Pause / Resume.

You can use it for all Samsung devices, but I have only tested it on Galaxy Tab S. It requires .NET Framework 3.5 (Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) and Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) installed)
If you run it via command line, you can use it to just decrypt .zip.enc2 and .zip.enc4 files.

Please let me know if the tool worked with your device and if you found any bugs (note, it's still beta).

Thanks, zxz0O0.

One question: does it download from Samsung's servers or from an unnofficial source?

Bugs and suggestions:
1) BUG: If one of the parameters is incorrect, it gives the error message in the text area, but the controls remain disable, so I cannot correct data and try again. I am forced to quit and start over.

2) Suggestion: save the last used data (Model, Region, PDA, CSC, Phone, etc)

3) what does the "binary nature" check box mean ?

It is downloaded from Samsung servers. Thanks for your suggestions / bugs. I will correct (1).

2) This is already implemented. The last used settings will be saved to SamFirm.xml
3) I am not sure exactly but Kies uses this if you select firmware initialization for example. I have not really checked it yet, but there are more *.tar.md5 files in the firmware

Edit: Updated attachment with (1) fixed.

How fast does it download since sammobile caps your speed and takes forever to download.

Worked OK when I was downloading firmware for the Tab S but doesn't work now for the S5.
Keeps saying "Input String was not in the correct format". :(
Shame because downloading from RapidGator from SamMobile takes forever.

Can you post a screenshot of the info / model, etc. ?
