Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone knows whether it is possible to flash the T-Mobile US SM-A716U firmware on the SM-A715F/DS device. Will Odin allow it? Will the device function? As far as I can tell, the chipset is the same, but I wonder how it would affect functions like Dual SIM. (The T-Mobile firmware also has support for 5G, which may not be supported on the SM-A715F/DS.)

Does anyone know what could happen, or if it works? Are there any negative consequences, and could someone explain if the bootloader needs to be unlocked or anything? Ideally, I'd like to get that SM-A716U firmware loaded in the SM-A715, but want to keep everything as stock as possible. I'm also not terribly familiar with Odin., so I'm not sure if the software allows flashing a firmware intended for a different device variant.

Thanks in advance!
