However, before that lets get a rough idea on;

What is a Combination Firmware And What Are It's Uses?

Combination Firmware is a type of firmware used exclusively for Samsung Galaxy Smartphones for the servicing purpose. Yes you heard it right, this is only for the Samsung Android Smartphones, and not for any other brands. Combination ROM can be used to check all the hardware features like cameras, sensors, RAM memory, ROM memory and phone diagnostics. Combination Firmware can also be used to bypass and remove the FRP lock (if it's bootloader is not locked), Google Account verification or Google Account protection.

2. Now download the combination file. A complete list of combination file download links are very hard to find on the internet however I have found a paid service which is given below. You may use any other source of your choice for downloading though.

From wherever you are downloading please make sure that you are selecting the correct binary version other vice you may end up bricking your device.

However if you like to download the combination firmware for free please search Google. For eg: If you need combination firmware for Galaxy S9 SM-G960U. Search in Google like this "Galaxy S9 SM-G960U Combination Firmware Download". The downloaded file will be in ".zip", ".tar" or "rar" format.

Once downloaded please extract it your PC desktop.

Now download the Odin app from the below link or just download the latest version from anywhere on the internet.

Extract it once download is finished.

Once the connection is made successfully you will get an "Added" message from the Odin app like shown in the screenshot below.

If you didn't got the confirmation please install/reinstall the Samsung USB drivers from the below link and try again.

4. Now click the "AP" button in the Odin and app and select the "tar.md5" combination file you have already downloaded and extracted in "Step-2".

5. Once done click the "Start" button in the Odin app and wait for the procedure to get finished. When finished your phone will boot into factory binary. Now switch it off and enter it into the recovery mode. To enter into recovery mode please press and hold the "Vol Up+Power" buttons at the same time. Release the "Power" button while keeping the "Vol Up" button to enter into the Android "Recovery Mode".

 6. In the next step we are going to factory reset your phone from the recovery menu. For that please select "Wipe Data/Factory Reset" option in the recovery menu. Use the "Vol + and Vol -" keys to toggle through the options and use the "Power" button to confirm the selection. Once factory reset is done select "Reboot system now" in the recovery menu.

When booted up you will be entered into a similar screen like the one given below on your Samsung Galaxy Smartphone.
