Hi all you wise minded tech enthusiasts.

I am currently using Galaxy S20+ 5G G986B BTS EDITION

The problem i am facing is I cannot find out which Bootloader version i wm currently on the baseband is

G986BXXSCDUJ5

Can someone walk me through the steps to figure out my Bootloader version?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The significant digit is the fifth one in.

Generally speaking, your bootloader version should be the same as your baseband version.

So what do you think is mine?
Bootloader version is 5th number from right of baseband/build number firmware name. If yours shows as C than Bootloader version is 12.
You can also check in download ( Odin ) mode there should be a line saying something like :
AP SWREV - the number after the letter B is your Bootloader version number.

You can only flash the same or higher Bootloader versions.
Use websites like updato or sammobil or use PC app called frija to download latest versions ( search XDA can:t provide links at the moment )
yeah I am aware if that but what i am looking for is a BTS Edition of STOCK ROM which is nowhere available
