      Try this, This is for SM-G900F version. You can find CF for your model on CF main site. Hope it helps.

        Here’s what I have:
        Android security patch level 1 February 2017
        Baseband version G900FXXS1CQAV
        Build number MMB29M.G900FXXS1CQAV

        Nothing I have tried so far seems to work – I always get FAIL message in ODIN

      • Tony Scott
