I remember you doing some great stuff but I don't recall the phone... Galaxy S3? Note5? Note7? Note8? HTC M8? EVO 4G LTE? OG EVO? Anyway, I am excited to see you here.

I wanna say s8/+ and the note 8.. both of which root solutions I used.

Word brotha 🤙🤙 thank you for your diligence. I love that your hobby can help out so many who don't have the time, will, or discipline to learn it.

So.. I had to get a replacement via Asurion, and before setting it up I installed the earliest unlocked firmware. Sm-n960u on Verizon plan. I understand that this should work as long as I don't update, correct?

Yes, just make sure you stay away from anything that says N960UxxU2 or S2

Mine says Rev 1.1. Does that mean game over for me?

No that's for hardware revision. Is normally for when a device has had a hardware fix that changed something from the original design. So if they realized the fingerprint readers on rev1 were crappy and changed it out for future ones, they would show rev1.1 or whatever numbers they want to classify it as.

I'm not sure what they may have changed on the Note 9 though. Could have been camera or even something internal such as memory or radio chip.

What you want to stay away from is any changes to the attached image. Don't update to anything that says U2 or S2 at that section of the firmware.
