    Hi,
    Can you post me the link of CWM Flashable CSC file?

  • Abu Bakar

    I have downloaded the firmware but there is no file with CODE in its name when I extract the zip file and then the tar file which is extracted from zip file. There is only one file with MODEM in its name. There is nothing with CSC in the name and also no file with .pit extension. Is there something wrong as I have downloaded the right firmware. I have got only the following files from that archive.
    1. boot.img 5. recovery.img
    2. cache.img 6. sboot.bin
    3. hidden.img 7. system.img
    4. modem.bin 8. tz.img
    Is there anything else I need to do to use this firware. Thanks.

    • Just add the downloaded firmware fie to PDA / AP section of Odin and flash the firmware.
