Samsung firmware version information

Before flashing you should know some basic version information of your current ROM and to which ROM you are going to. Is it new update or just moving from country to another country?

The easiest way to get your phone information.

Firmware version: *#1234#
S/W version: *#1111#
H/W version: *#2222#

Now that you have typed the firmware version code and that you are on the screen, you will get 3 different pieces of information. As an example, my phone shows (I had flash Hong Kong version):

PDA: N7000ZSKK1
PHONE: N7000XXKJ6
CSC: N7000OZSKK1

Build Info: Thu Nov 3 16:31:33 KST 2011


Definition
PDA is the operating system with its programs and settings included.
PHONE is the modem firmware file, parts of which are required to access the hardware.
CSC (for consumer software customisation) are the regional settings applied which may install additional programs as well as provider-specific settings (APN).

That not difficult to understand your phone version. The code quite simple but flashing between region quite confusing. My advice is just look at the Android version.. like moving from Android 2.3.5 to Android 2.3.6. There should be enhancement or bug fixes in the new Android version.

    My SGS is running on XXJVT, which doesn't fit any of the definition you listed up there.
