Good new for all the Samsung users who like to tinker with their Galaxy devices. If you have rooted or installed a custom ROM and want to revert back the changes using a clean firmware flash and restore it to stock, then here is a simple tool named SamFirm, Frija, or the new Samsung Firmware Downloader free and opens source projects that can download the latest full stock Samsung firmware TAR files onto your PC, mobile, Linux machine, and MacOS.
Getting a full firmware file is not a difficult job and sometimes may get frustrating. There are some portals claiming to provide these files but they either need a premium package or have speed or bandwidth restriction. But no more. The developer of Samsung Firmware Downloader claim that with this software you can download the firmware files directly from Samsung servers with no such speed restrictions. Plus you get to check the latest firmware for your device as well. All you need to do is fill in the firmware details into the Samsung firmware downloader and check for the file.
This downloader does not guarantee all the firmware files for all regions. It may sometimes fail for some regions or you may need to enter additional information about your Galaxy device into the software. So it’s better to keep the device/software information handy. By using the Manual method in the SamFirm script, you can enter the specific firmware details like PDA, CSC and Phone in order to get the accurate firmware for your Samsung Galaxy device. However, the Auto function works fine.
I have personally tried downloading many files using the following tools and it has not disappointed me at all. Follow the tutorial below to know how to download it. The only downfall is that the software is designed for Windows PC only.
If you have rooted or installed a custom ROM and want to revert back the changes using a clean firmware flash and restore it to stock, then here are simple tools like Frija, Bifrost, and SamFirm. They are free and open-source projects available on GitHub and are completely safe.
We also have listed the older Bifrost tool which can work on Windows PC, mobile, Linux machine, and MacOS.
These downloader tools output TAR files directly from Samsung servers and can be easily installed using Odin Flash Tool or Freya installer.
However, it’s important to note that this downloader doesn’t guarantee access to all firmware files for all regions. Sometimes, it might fail for specific regions, or you might need to provide additional information about your Galaxy device. To ensure a smooth experience, it’s a good idea to have your device and software information readily available.
The Manual (legacy) method allows you to enter specific firmware details such as PDA, CSC, and Phone to obtain accurate firmware for your Samsung Galaxy device. Of course, the Auto function works well in most cases.
