Flashing Indian firmware on Samsung devices for Reliance Jio to work

This guide is only applicable for 4G Samsung phones purchased outside India.

Those who have bought their phones overseas are now struggling to use Reliance Jio because they do not support VoLTE. And this guide will help you in making the Samsung phone to support VoLTE and Samsung Pay as well.

Before trying out this guide please make sure you have a 4G Samsung phone.

Let’s get started. 👍

1.       Ensure the phone is charged over 60%. This process will wipe your entire data on the phone.

2.       Check the model number of your Samsung phone.

Settings --> About --> Model Number

3.       Go to the site https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ and insert your model number in the search bar and it will show all the available firmware versions for your model along with the country names. Check for INS or INU which indicates the Indian firmware. Download the latest Indian firmware for your model.

Below is the search result for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (SM-G935FD) filtered by the Country India (INS). Click on the latest version and download the file.



4.       Download the latest ODIN from http://odindownload.com/ or Here

5.       Extract or Unzip the firmware file into a folder. Avoid using winrar as it can cause errors. Use 7zip instead.

6.       Run/Open ODIN as Administrator

7.       Put the phone in download mode. Shutdown your phone. Press Power + Home + Volume down. A screen appears asking you whether to continue or not. Press Volume up to continue. Connect the phone to the computer via a good USB cable. The ODIN should show the it has detected your phone.

8.       From the extracted firmware put the below files in ODIN. Click on the buttons BL, AP, CP,  CSC one by one and choose the respective files. The file to be chosen for BL will start with file name BL. The file to go for AP will start with the file name AP and so on as shown in the following image.

      BL
      AP
      CP
      CSC



9.       Check the below options. (for this select Options tab).

F.reset time
Auto reboot

10.   Here we are installing Indian country firmware from other country’s firmware so we need to change the System partition size. To do this select PIT file and the check the below checkbox. Note: PIT file is not required nowadays as it is already built-in the CSC file. So just check the below option as shown in the following image.

Re-partition




Note: If you are installing a multi CSC firmware, and your existing CSC is in that firmware, then DO NOT select Re-partition.

You can check if your firmware is Multi-CSC by installing this app (Phone Info). Link given below:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.vndnguyen.phoneinfo&hl=en

11.   Now click the Start button and wait until the ODIN shows PASS. The phone will now reboot.

12.   To receive OTA updates, after installing the firmware, put the phone into Recovery Mode and wipe cache then wipe data/factory reset.

To go to the recovery mode press Power + Home + Volume up button. Now select ‘Cache Partition’ and wipe it. Then ‘wipe data/factory reset’ and reboot your phone.

You are done.✌ Post your comments below if you had flashed successfully or if you faced any issue or want anymore help. Let me know if you are stuck somewhere, I can provide you live support.

    2. Core issue - Jio volte not working to make it work indian firmware flash is needed ..
      So,
      My phone is s8 dual sim from singapore by carrier singtel. Model no is SM-G950FD yesterday i flashed it with indian firmware but i found out that even after flashing jio volte does not work and i can still see singtel app which should not be there since i flashed indian firmware.

      Plz help

      Delete
    3. Is your phone carrier unlocked?. Please let me know the steps that you followed for flashing.

      Delete
    4. I guess yes because all the sim cards of india work without any problem but one particular network reliance jio needs indian firmware for volte that being said jio's data works flawlessly even apn is acquired by the phone automatically but make receive calls is not possible because of the firmware problem ....

      Steps:
      Downloaded indian firmware from https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/galaxy-s8/SM-G950FD/INS/

      1. G950FXXU1AQH3 (included are home_csc & csc) ... Latest firmware
      2. Installed odin
      3. Samsung usb drivers
      4. Added BL AP CP CSC to odin
      5. Device detected by odin then flash was successful
      6. After reboot i saw the same files as when i got it from singapore singtel app especially.
      7 . When i inserted my jio sim still the same problem no volte.

      Delete
    5. I checked the phone info app it is still showing csc - singapore

      Do i need to check repartition in odin before flash?

      Delete
    6. Hi do you have any solution to my problem?

      Delete
    7. Seems like the phone was not flashed with the INS firmware. You have to check re-partition in odin for sure.
      Don't worry about the pit file. It's already embedded in the firmware itself.
      Try again and let me know.

      Delete
    8. Ok thanks I'll do that tonight and will let you know by tomorrow :)

      Delete
    9. Still no luck brother :( even after selecting repartition the same rom got installed and jio is still not working

      Delete
    10. I checked autoreboot, f reset , re partition ... It was successfully flashed .... But still the singtel app and service provider apps are on the phone as it is

      Delete
    11. Good to know that it got flashed. Is Jio working?
      I think the firmware is built for your model so it contains the singtel apps.

      Delete
    12. No jio is still not working, do i need to check on nand erase too?

      Delete
    13. I feel that even after successful flash the original state is getting restored... Something is not right ... After every flash country csc is singapore and csc code is sin it never changed to ins or inu


      - Do i need to download old/first firmware because this is the latest one

      What options in odin can be used for flashing safely (my odin ver. 3.12.7 options tab contains - auto reboot, nand erase, repartition, f reset, flash lock, t flash, phone efs clear, phone bootloader update)

      Delete
    14. Then something is happening. Just select the auto reboot, re-partition and f-reset. Once again go thru the post and follow each step without fail

      Delete
    15. What is the Singapore firmware version that you are running?. What is the INS/INU firmware version that you are trying to flash?

      Delete
    16. Indian firmware - G950FXXU1AQH3 - Galaxy S8 SM-G950FD INS India

      After *#1234# my phone displays

    17. In about phone-software info
      There is service provider software which is

      SIN/SIN/XSP

      Delete
    18. I guess the ap cp and csc version have changed as per the new firmware but the service provider software is still sin

      Delete
    19. Okay. Try going to mobile networks from settings and change the network mode to LTE.

      Delete
    20. Did that but still no volte ... In my oneplus 5 the access point name shows jio whereas my s8 shows loop mobile

      Delete
    21. Guess what this old method worked :)


      https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s8/help/changing-csc-s8-t3600963/page3

      1. get you phones imei:
      go to dialer > dial *#06#
      take a note of your imei without the /01 at the end.

      2. go to phone dialer > dial *#272*(your phones imei)#

      3. choose which csc you need and install it.
      your phone will reinstall firmware with the new csc region you choose.

      It removed the software totally and changed the software info to ins/ins/xsp ...


      Thanks a lot brother you were a great help

      Delete
    22. Great. This method did not work on my S7 edge but good that it worked for you. :)

      Delete
    23. Yes this does not worked for everyone but i guess this should be the first step before going for odin

  2. Hi, thanks for the detailed steps. But I've got one query. I read the instructions in sammobile's website(https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/galaxy-s7/SM-G930FD/INS/download/G930FXXU1DQE7/167250/) and it says that "Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked". I'm a little confused here, could you help.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you are installing a multi CSC firmware, and your existing CSC is in that firmware, then DO NOT select Re-partition.

      If your CSC is totally a new one then you need to select re-partition.

      E.g.. If you have UAE firmware then it has a CSC. This UAE CSC goes in hand with some other countries' firmware so you need not select re-partition in that case. But if you want to flash an Indian firmware from UAE firmware then re-partition should be selected.

      To know the list of CSCs that goes hand in hand, install Phone info app from play store to check it.

      Delete
    2. It seems INS CSC(for India) is not available in UAE firmware which implies that to flash an Indian firmware from UAE firmware re-partition should be selected in ODIN.

      Phone INFO app shows that UAE CSC (Code:XSG) comes along with following CSC Codes(on Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge - SM-G935FD)...
      ACR, AFG, AFR, BTC, DKR, DRC, ECT, EGY, KSA, LYS, MAT, MID, MRT, MRU, MTZ, MWD, PAK, SMG, THR, TMC, TUN, TUR, WTL, XFA, XFE, XFM, XFU, XSG

      You can even access 3G or 4G from 2nd sim. To do this go to Sim Card manager from setting and change the network mode as required.

  5. Hi, I have the same situation, Samsung pay not working in India and phone's TRA ID shows UAE written on top. I have never tried any such things before and bit worried about what if anything goes wrong? What are the risks here? How recover if something goes wrong, please guide!

    1. Hi, It's unlikely that Samsung Pay in non-Indian firmware phones work in India.
      If you want Samsung Pay and Jio to work in India then the safest way is to flash an Indian firmware.
      There is no risk here. Need to make sure that you use a good USB cable, Charge the phone over 80%, follow the instructions as is and don't miss any point, Do not turn off PC/Laptop while the process is going on. And finally you will done.

      If at all something goes wrong, it's easy to return back to your original firmware(UAE) or whatever the country firmware the phone had initially. Using Samsung Smart Switch will help to restore to stock conditions. Note down your phone's S/N(This would be available in package box or use an app to get the S/N). Put the phone in download mode and connect to PC, choose Emergency Software recovery and initialization from Smart Switch. Proceed as per ongoing instructions.

    1. VoLTE will be enabled only if you using a VoLTE supported SIM such as Jio. Otherwise you cant see VoLTE anywhere in the phone. The phone auto detects the SIM and network and displays it there. If you use a 2G SIM then you only get 2G in network settings.
      When you use Jio, you will get VoLTE there so don't worry. India CSC does support VoLTE.

      Another way to find is via the Samsung smart switch PC software. Download and install it in your PC and plug your phone to it. It displays your model number there.

    4. It happens randomly, even for me too. Try the below steps.
      1. Remove the fingerprints and pin. Register again.
      2. If the above didn't work then do a factory reset.

    1. Bixby will be officially released to the Samsung devices via OTA so wait until that. Installing Bixby apk doesn't work always.

    1. Have you done a factory reset after the flash? If yes then checkout with a working Jio sim of friends'. It could be network issue.

    1. I guess SM-G610F firmware works for SM-G610F/DS as well.
      But make sure that it works and try at your own risk. If something went wrong then you can restore to original state with Samsung Smart Switch app.
      Note: Back up your data.

  51. Hi..how to download new firmware with single CSC in it? I'm trying to flash Malaysian firmware which is multi-csc, but I got Thailand CSC installed instead.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hello. Malaysian firmware is a multi CSC firmware. You can select between the Malaysian and Thailand CSCs in the same firmware.
      Follow the below steps to select the CSCs: (NOTE: Back up your data. It resets your phone)
      1. Launch your phone dialer and type
      *#272*Phone’s IMEI Here#
      2. Your phone will automatically pop up a screen with some codes.
      3. They are the CSC codes
      4. Select the one which you need
      5. Now your phone will factory reset and restarts
      6. Done

  56. I have a dubai phone on which I'm flashing the Indian firmware via Odin, do I have to check re partition or no? Still confused after reading the comments. Sorry if it's annoying to ask.

  57. Hi Andro,

    I bought the SM-G935FD in USA , this is a UAE model and I need to send it to India to be used ion the Jio, So I flashed it with the Latest version from Sammobile.

    Everything went well & phone started & all, But I do not have the Jio SIM card here in USA to check if VOLTE works or not, Do you see that VOLTE option can be seen only if I insert the Jio Card because I have a AT&T card here & it does not provide VOLTE. Reason I am asking is I dont want to end up in a mess where I send the Phone to India & my Parents are not able to do all this FW flashing & all.

    1. Hi. There are few ways VoLTE can be checked and confirmed.
      1) Go to Settings -> Connections ->Mobile Networks ->Network Mode.
      Here you should have LTE/4G which means your phone supports VoLTE.
      2) There are apps in the play store that can check whether the phone supports VoLTE. For eg.) VoLTE checker.
      Let me know if this helped.

      Delete
    2. Thank you Andro, Will check on my phone & let you know.

      As I was going through your post Dt. July 29, 2017 at 7:27 AM I feel unless & untill I have the VOLTE Supported SIm Card I am not gonna see it. Still I will try with the VOLTE Checker App from Play store.

      I hope it should work since I already have installed the Lates tFirmware from SAM Mobile released on 23 Nov 2017, So I hope it must be supporting it. As well I checked the CSC & it shows INS so it should be OK. Will Keep you posted, Thank you for your support.
