Considering the insane amount of problems reported here and on Reddit....it's probably for the best 🤣
You're right - I recently tried it by flashing the XAC CSC version and it was a lagfest - a lot of notification bugs too, but also 5G did not work (which I am guessing is due to CSC specific modem firmware).

October update was supposed to be available today but I don't see it. I would assume Monday morning.

Hey All....

Can anyone tell me where to get the token, or a link for the token, for rooting the S21 Ultra US/Can?

Installed the October patch today (Videotron) and all seems well...too early to judge, but there isn't anything potentially impacting performance - it's just a security update. Or so they say :)

I haven't seen anything like that. Canada is a small market, I would say it's risky to go down that path while keeping the Canadian software.
You would have more luck finding a market where the "underground movement" is more active - pick some European sw base.

What in the name of sweet fcuk is going on in Kanukistan? Rogers calendar doesn't list any S21 series update until at least Nov22 when A11 gets November update in a week. Wtf?

I thought Scamsung promised "timely" updates (which other countries do get)....maybe they placed us behind Palau, based on country's international importance.

Rogers and Telus are both reporting Nov 23 for the Android 12 update on the Canadian S21 series. I guess they're going to skip the Nov security update and go right to Android 12?

Looks like it. Fingers crossed they don't need 15 patches to get things sorted out after the upgrade. Plenty of issues with beta so I hope they took their time to fix everything. Bragging about having Android 12 means nothing if you get frustrated with the phone.

Hilarious...if anyone thought Canada will get it first (for a change) most countries got the update today.
Maybe others just don't know how to look at the carrier schedule - or they don't exist.

Guys....REALLY getting cold feet from all the comments I see here and in Reddit. Too many issues afor phone that's my daily driver and on the October patch is almost flawless.
Might wait to see what December brings...to me OneUI 4.0 is not fully baked, Samsung tried its best to be among the first to adopt Android 12 but the PV team was asleep at the helm.

I flashed the U version on this phone with home CSC instead of regular and my signal is actually much better. No discernible difference otherwise from what I can see.
