Just got a 950u off ebay. It was titled as a Verizon phone but when I turned it on it showed the T-mobile splash screen. I tried putting in my Verizon sim card but it told me to put in a T-mobile sim card.
I was going to return it but then I came across this thread. I'm pretty familiar with using Odin with my note 4 but I haven't used the modded one. And can anyone clarify the steps a little to go from T-mobile to Verizon and get volte/OTA updates? Do I need to flash to U1 first (which I assume is the unlocked version) before flashing the Verizon U? Or can I just get the modded Odin and flash straight to Verizon? How do I know if I need to do post 2 or 3? What's the difference? Is there anything that has changed from the steps on the first page?
Thanks for any help!
Sounds easy enough. One more thing before I take the plunge: I noticed that all the firmwares linked are either nougat or oreo. The phone is already on pie so will it allow me to downgrade and flash the U1 oreo fw?
edit: baseband version says N950USQU5DSC1
edit2: After doing more research, I'm seeing that I'm currently on bootloader v5. So I would therefore need to use firmware that has a v5 bootloader. So for the U1 XAA I'm using N950U1UES5DSE4_N950U1OYM5DSE4_XAA.zip and for the Verizon U firmware I'll use N950USQU5DSC1_N950UOYN5DSC1-20190306-USC-Android_9.zip
