  1. I’m up to step 9, but the download from Sammobile has 5 files in it. Which am I supposed to use in Odin? My options are:

    HOME_CSC_XSA_G930FXSA1APDN_CL7538748_QB9409789_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5
    CSC_XSA_G930FXSA1APDN_CL7538748_QB9409789_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5
    CP_G930FXXU1APDN_CL7538748_QB9409789_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5
    BL_G930FXXU1APDN_CL7538748_QB9409789_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5
    AP_G930FXXU1APDN_CL7538748_QB9409789_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5

    • You can upload all files to their particular options and flash all. Also, there are two CSC files so use only CSC (will wipe all your data), and if you want the stock firmware without wiping data, you can use Home_CSC, but that need some modification (use CYGWIN tool for that).

      • Hi Sumit! What’s the difference between installing BL, AP, CP, CSC separately and AP only? I mean…is it necessary to install all these together or AP only? I am on latest firmware of Nougat 7 (S7 Edge) an I want downgrade on 6.0.1…

        Thanks! :-)
