I'm absolutely sure that you can do that.
I have tried it yesterday and successfully changed the model.
But, you can't flash it via ordinary Odin. You have use a patched Odin which can be found in XDA and flash the u1 firmware in it.

Can we also flash the U1 firmware to Canadian fold 4 f936w model?
Should be able to:

I'll probably be trying this myself in the next few days. Will update if I do.

Ok I just flashed from U1 to a W ROM, specifically F936U1UES1AVJ1 (Android 12, XAA) to F936WVLU1BVK3 (13, XAC), and it all seems like it works fine. I'll update if I run into anything in the next few days.

Just a note that although it doesn't matter, it was originally a SM-F936U (updated to U1 then W)

My kind sir would you mind me asking what would be your reason of flashing from 936u to 936w to 946u1 and who would be your carrier and did you expirence any network issues???
Thanks in advance

Hey shorty I bought it used with U firmware and just to be safe to make sure it's stock and the fact U (and W) versions didn't get much updates, I flashed with the U1. Android 13 was released first for unbranded Canada XAC and since I'm actually using on Canadian networks, might as well. So far ok. No issues to report.

Well that's good to hear that makes sense then, so you are using it on a Canadian carrier??
I only as Cuz I have AT&T and I'm trying to figure out why mine has a completely different firmware then what sammobile shows what the at&t firmware is and my zfold4 is saying it's on the current firmware witch clearly tells me it's not!! oh does yours show the oem unlock btw

Hey I have a question, in order to update to the W XAC, did you have to delete user data? Or were you able to update keeping your data. Thanks

Hey I'm not too sure if you mean this, but yes mine is factory unlocked (actually a dev/demo device). And yes on Canadian network. You can always flash with the newest ATT ROM if yours is from ATT but hasn't gotten updates. Just make sure it indeed is the right model.

I did not keep user data so not sure if you can or should. But I think if you're switching model/CSC, the general consensus is to do a clean flash. If you just want to enable Canadian bands that are disabled on a US device, you can search up a way to do so I think using engineering mode.

Okie dokie sounds good I'm just looking into it and noticed all varients have a similar codes and my pituitary one has the firmware matching the MetroPCS firmware but the only firmware that I have found for at&t comes up as the smf936u1 at least on sammobile I suppose I'll have to check other firmware sites thanks for the reply hope you are having a wonderful day

If you're on any of the U or U1 firmware, I think you can safely flash to any other U/U1 without any issues. I usually cross reference with samfw and Frija too. Have a wonderful day too friend.

Would this enable Sim for phones without it? The SM-F9360 does not have esim support, could be software, I hope.
