Hi guys,

I have the SM-R500 and I was trying to update the firmware using NetOdin, I could solve it, first with the AP installation.

Then I was able to turn on the device, all good...but then on the step to connect my smartwatch to the wireless (to change the region), and the smartwatch don't find any wireless network...

Then I was trying to do a new installation using NetOdin and when I'm facing the download (wireless screen) I'm facing the attach file error..."wd_cm_setup_ap: Failed to run soft AP -1"

Can anyone have a clue to solve one of the two situations?

Thank you so much in advance.

Because few of your posts are far away from fair...

@ All

New Tizen 5.5.0.1 not leaked yet...
FUB5 is only for KOO and XAR released yet as FOTA...

So hopefully more luck if more CSC released... chance increased for Leak of Odin Files... :alien:

Best Regards

P.S.:
I need FUB5 as netOdin leak... for my SM-R500 tests... and Blood Oxygen investigation...

Because FOTA Rooting method not work...

Downgrade to ASAD , change CSC to XAR then allow OTA to update you to latest update.

Ive helped some dude on reddit do just that today.

Still FUB5 is only for KOO and XAR released...

No idea how long it take for the other 60+ CSC...

Maybe this Friday or next or...

Meanwhile about missing BL file from ETL2...

It is possible to "find" the missing files and to create valid TAR for FOTA...

Memo to me...

Missing Files for BL Tar from ETL2 Firmware

Code:
            inside FOTA/Delta    dd dump possible
cm.bin            YES
dzImage                        YES Root required
dzImage-recovery               YES Root required
param.bin                      YES Root required
sboot.bin        YES
up_param.bin                   YES Root required


------------------------------

R500XXU1ETI1

ETI1 "latest" leaked full full firmware

Hmmm... I have DTG2 rooted... ETI1 not tested yet

Edit 1.

Attached is Delta aka FOTA file from ETI1 to ETL2

We have now 2 files from 6...
Because cm.bin and sboot.bin are ever FULL files inside FOTA package...

Later more...

I played fw on XEO and I don't get updates anymore. the former csc was probably Polish and now I'm just relying on whether someone uploads it here: / 🤔

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

No idea how risky to downgrade from FUB5 Tizen 5.5.0.1 back to ETI1...

Because I love my SM-R500. :love:

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

There are enough examples Samsung maybe changed something in Security... to fail downgrade from Tizen 5.5 back to Tizen 4...
I saw posts and threads...
BT and WiFi then disabled...

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

No idea if I can wait more days... to wait for FUB5 Leak...

I need my Root... in FUB5... :alien: :cowboy:

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

I need more Vodka.
And more free space on my full HDD.

Best Regards

Step 1 successfully done.

Downgrade from Tizen 5.5.0.1 (FUB5) tested with ETI1 Firmware Files.
Phone can detect and configure my ETI1 SM-R500... so BT and WiFi still alive...

Step 2.
Need to Root ETI1...
+ Flashing

Step 3.
Bootloader sboot.bin is still FUB5...

And I have only old FT40 Combination Firmware...
COMBINATION-FT40_R500XXU1ASL2

Edit 1.
Oh, found newer FT40...

    Your result sounds you flashed WITHOUT BL...
    ?
    Is this correct? So instead 3 from 3 files you flashed only 2 of 3...

    Code:
    wd_cm_setup_ap: Failed to run soft AP: -1

    This seems only repairable with USB cable... to flash with Odin instead netOdin...
    If you need USB Pinout... look somewhere here IMHO:

    Best Regards
    I just uploaded the fw using the Weareble app, not using NetOdin. I read some cases where if you flashed only 2 files like you said, the watch was bricked, but using the official app.. I don't know why this happens.

    I have screwed up, I flashed via NetOdin ETL2 without BL because it was missing on the ZIP I downloaded. What should I do now?


    Have you managed to fix it? I flashed it without BL and I am getting that Failed to run soft AP: -1 error.
    Nope, I tried to soldering an usb cable but it failed, so I just wanna try with a 6pin connector
