    SM-J7108. Firmware update without wipping data.

    I have a Samsug Galaxy J7-2016 phone, product code: SM-J7108ZDDCHM.
    The firmware is TGY (J7108ZHU1APD1) and Active Code CSC = Original CSC code= CHM. That's why he couldn't receive updates.

    The Phone Info application says: Your phone does not have CSC version and CSC country.
    Bootloader version and Baseband version are CHM: J7108ZMU1APC3.

    If I install the version below with Odin, will I lose the data?
    https://www.sammobile.com/samsung/ga...S2BRC1/215288/

    The archive contains only one file: AP (System &Recovery).

    Thanks!

    Hi there

    Are you sure this is the correct firmware?

    1 file is correct: you need to put it in AP

    Normally it should not wipe your device

    Use SamMobile only if you are 100% sure about the risks involved in flashing your device. SamMobile is not responsible for any damage caused by using the files on this website.

    I have not found a newer version for this model: https://www.sammobile.com/samsung/ga...ware/#SM-J7108
    If the current firmware version installed is TGY, I thought I should install TGY as well. Or should I install as is the current CSC, CHM version?
    Thank you!

    These are the ones I specified in the first message, respectively:
    Firmware:
    PDA version is from Hong Kong because contain ZH: J7108ZHU1APD1.
    Bootloader version and Baseband version are from China because they containn ZM: J7108ZMU1APC3.
    Active CSC code is CHM.

    The Phone Info application says (Refurbishmnent check):It looks like the firmware has benn modified. Your phone does not have CSC version and CSC country.

    It seems that the phone, although I bought it as new, has only the firmware changed from China to Hong Kong, but the CSC remained China.
    Practically, it has been half reconfigured.
