Regarding updates, if you have updated your Ultra Manually via Odin, when the official firmware is released I don't beleive it will automatically install. Because, your phone has already been updated, there won't be a need for it to be installed.

am a little confused if you are referring to the photo i posted on page 7 at 1:06am that was my own screenshot from my pc that is the odin and files i used to flashed my phone to update it to the 1AHCT update i got them from SAMMOBILE model #SM-G988U. thank you

So I tried to flash via odin and had an error half way though... No I'm stuck on this screen and smart switch won't recognize it.

I am not an expert but believe the process should be:
1. Hold side key until the phone powers off.
2. Hold volume up key and side key together until boot screen shows.
3. Volume key up/down to select recovery mode, then press side key.
4. At this point you should be able to plug in usb

I've got an UN-locked U1 device but haven't received an update yet. This auto-focus thing is an issue for sure. I don't take many pictures or videos but wanted to try out the camera after I finally got my phone yesterday. This thing is hunting ALL the time. Luckily I only take a picture or two a month at most.

Regarding the steps you outlined for getting the phone into Download mode so you can use ODIN - when you first hold the the volume up/Volume Down buttings (step 2 in your directions) while holding those buttons down - that is when you need to plug in the USB Cord. Plugging in the cord is what triggers things so the phone will launch into recovery mode. once it launches - then you release the two buttons and then hit volume up - that is what puts the phone into download mode.

I had better results with the update on US at&t I did OTA the night before last, I used to have a lot of focus searching but not now. First pic was just putting the phone up to the can no zoom adjustments locked focus immediately, next 4 are 1x, 4x, 10x, and 30x zoom. Before the update something like this only the 1x would've been fine , everything else would've been crap and it would be focus hunting non stop, it's not perfect but after how depressing the picture quality was before the update I'll take it. Hopefully they continue to improve on it.Click image for larger version

I flashed ATCH and focus is better but no where near as reliable as s20+ or even S10, I think there will only be so much they can do on the software side to mitigate cheap lens, but macro shots definitely focus much better now
