    How to combine files for BL & CP ?

    I've download this;

    Firmware 2019-03-03 build date 2018-09-07 ?
    Model SM-N9005
    Model name GALAXY Note 3
    Country Sweden (Tre) (HTS)
    Version Android 5.0
    Changelist 4540543
    Build date Fri, 07 Sep 2018 09:52:40 +0000
    Security Patch Level 2015-11-01
    Product code HTS
    PDA N9005XXSGBRI2
    CSC N9005HTSGBRK1

    How to, didn't match !
    "Extract the firmware file you just downloaded. You should get 5 files":
    AP (System &Recovery)
    BL (Bootloader)
    CP (Modem / Radio)
    CSC_*** (Country / Region / Operator)
    HOME_CSC_*** (Country / Region / Operator)

    But extracted zip are 2 files;
    N9005XXSGBRI2_N9005HTSGBRK1_N9005XXUGBOJ3_HOME.tar .md5
    and SS_DL.dll

    I extract md5 with 7-zip and got 12 files.
    I need to combine files to get;
    BL (Bootloader)
    CP (Modem / Radio)

    For CP I will need to combine modem.bin + NON-HLOS.bin.
    For BL I will need to combine aboot.mbn, rpm.mbn, sbl1.mbn, sdi.mbn and tz.mbn.

    Using pr_release Windows 10 insider preview fast ring, chrome browser didn't open github autotar site, yesterday.

    Edit; but today new insider & updated Chrome.
    Github autotar site opened.
    Download Autotar program, but it's for Linux !
    Don't have Linux.
    Android are kind of Linux, maybe works with Note pro 12,2 LTE tablet, but install instructions are for Linux only !

    Are there any another way to combine !?

    My PC refused to open github autotar page (something illegal) I need that autotar program to combine files.

    Using pr_release Windows 10 insider preview fast ring, maybe that's a problem.

    Are there any another way to combine ?
    Hi there

    Firmware prior to S7/Note7 have only 1 file (tar.md5); that file should be place in AP of Odin

    Thanks, but that will completely unroot my device.
    I only need to flash bootloader & modem !
    I have all necessary files in Dropbox, only need to combine some, to get flashable bootloader & modem.
    I wait for a solution, I may find a friend who use Linux.
    I don't install Ubuntu again, with dualboot for Windows, that's gonna make trouble, I get new insider every week.
    I maybe find a Windows program able to combine.

    That I can't tell you, because we don't give support to ROOT-devices...

    Install 8-zip, only to make extra modem.tar & bootloader.tar alternatives.
    In 8-zip, when open tar-files created with 7-zip, files was in a folder.
    Tar-files created with 8-zip was alright, only files, no folder.
    I choose tar-files created with 8-zip and Odin flash modem.tar & bootloader.tar successfully.

    Everything's nice, now strong signal 4G, no problems whatsoever.

    Glad to hear you've fixed it...

    Understand, all talking Linux languge here, Android = Linux.
    Combine confused me at first, now I understand, that's only the Linux word for "add to archive", tar, zip, rar, all are archives.
    Talking Windows language; WinZip, 7-zip, 8-zip .., manage tar archives, not autotar because that's a Linux program.
