This seems to be a recurrent weird issue beyond security restrictions from sammy side so no one method known that fits for all the users.
Your best bet is trying all of the tips and tricks that worked on similar devices running with the same version like on here https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...stall-t3891193 from the thread replace the steps 1 and 2 by formatting data.
Also you should try with a combination files, choose a firmware with the latest bootloader that's available here https://samsungcombination.com/g950n-combination-files/
You said in the answer to me that you can't enter any recovery nor download mode but you said in the answer to Droidriven that a specific firmware didn't flash so then?
The theory of the latest firmware is very simple, you don't need the specific build number that was previously onto your device, I referred to the build number, don't confused with a firmware for other device no matter what similar is, only you need not to flash a previous version risking that bootloader version is lower than the latest that you had, a lower version won't flash but the same or newer yes, of course assuming that the issue is not actually other than a fail update and not an FRP block or due to not enable previously USB debugging and/or OEM unlock toggle was inaccessible, could be other reasons that lead you at this state.
Hi there. I think I have a very unusual question here.
So the thing is, up until now I had a Pie ROM, and I like to avoid linking my stuff to Google; so, not only do I have microG, I generally keep my contacts on my device and backup to a file regularly, rather than saving them on the cloud. Until now there has been no problem with this, and I have been creating new contacts and having them show up immediately on messaging apps like Whatsapp (privacy issues aside, I actually need that one).
However, this weekend I switched to the Q version of the same ROM (clean flash), and now, when I try to add a contact, it won't show up on Whatsapp unless I actually add it to my Google account. Since AOSP Contacts no longer even gives me the option to store them on-device, I installed Simple Contacts, which made me see this issue. When I get to choose between the two places I can store the contact, it says "Google account" and "Phone storage (not visible by other apps)". Not visible by other apps. Not only is this a discontinuity from my Pie experience, but also: how come the other contacts I meanwhile had made on-device when I was on Pie still get detected? Also, does anyone know if this is a Q thing in specific? Or is it even more specific, and should I just post on the thread for my device's ROM instead?
