Your baseband shows that your flash of the updated Firmware took successfully...this is why the previous versions fail...

So, after factory reset then backing out to main recovery menu and selecting boot to bootloader, flash updated BQJA TMB firmware...

If it fails again, follow the switching carrier guide and change csc to TMB in step 25...make sure to use the files for Use for BQJA

The flashing did PASS (like many times before with BQJA), but at the setup process I can already tell that I'm still on the XAA by looking at the LTE sign in the status bar.

Will look into the carrier switching process now.

Hi, I've just flashed the unlocked firmware (SM-N950U1 XAA) to my note 8 originally from Sprint, everything worked perfectly with prince ODIN. The only issue is that when I restart the phone, I get a google account missing error. My google account is not accepted, it's blocked. In the download window the FRP says it's locked.

How can I fix this?, thank you!

Enabled UMS in patch, but didn't help. What am I doing wrong?

Where did you find the unlocked variant??

I'm a little confused. What's the difference between the "carrier switching" and flashing the carrier firmware? Is the switching just updating the CSC by going to netural first? Then you can change the firmware (or leave unlocked firmware)?

Also, what other files would I need to use an N950U1 on Canadian carriers?

So now we can Flash the unlock firmware or the AT&T firmware going back and forth lateral lateral flashes?
