Hello everyone! I've been reading the threat but is too much information and I'm quite a noob at this, so I decided to write on it hoping someone can bring light to my situation.

So, I'm from Spain and I bought a second-hand s22. Since then I get a "Claro" logo (mobile company) when I turn on/off the mobile (i don't know where the smartphone is). Therefore, there's bloatware in it which I don't want. And recently, I've discovered I've got a Snapdragon Gn1 smartphone so that I'm very happy.

Now, my doubt is that I wanted to flash it with the European ROM, since there's no Spanish ROM, but as my device is Snapdragon I don't know if I will be able seeing that in Europe Samsung comes with Exynos.

Anyone could help me?

You guys are going about changing your CSCs the hard way.


Yes it's a FRP tool but it also has one click CSC change (download speeds for firmware is pretty reasonable too). Image attached - T-Mobile U Model S22 and the CSCs built into the T-Mobile ROM. I got about half way through this thread and saw the same question a lot - no it won't trip Knox. You don't need root. You don't need to flash a firmware, you just change it to whichever is the better of the bunch and the OTA updates will start rolling in.

There's also a button to clear any bloatware should the CSC you choose include anything carrier or region specific that is considered garbage.

You just need to enable USB Debug Mode, or some phones you need to manually open the dialler and enter *#0*# to fire up ADB through test mode. If you've got a Verizon phone, there's a button in that tool to enable test mode as it's disabled.

Example: I've got a Samsung Live Demo Unit in a certain model from a certain region that actually ships with IMEIs, they're just disabled by the chosen CSC (not in the list, doesn't display as an option in the app either so you don't accidentally choose it) - as well as the power saving modes and charging to 100%. They only need to have the CSC changed to another country/region in the same Multi CSC firmware to be a full retail unit (as well as Demo Mode disabled with a password).

In regards to flashing firmwares from outside your region - the limitation is on your CPU. A series and M series Samsungs all use Exynos, so you can flash U, U1, F, B firmwares on them (probably more). U, U1 use Snapdragon and are interchangable, N and 0 use Snapdragon but I've never bothered to flash a N or 0 firmware on a Snapdragon phone to see if they are interchangable. E and B are interchangable (or F and B previously). If you are going to hop between models you MUST be using Patched Odin to skip the SHA256 check.

So yeah, you can absolutely flash U1 firmware onto a U device, I bought a lot of 10 of them that are locked to T-Mo are are all on U1 now. If only unlocking them for use in Australia was as easy as swapping firmware and CSCs

Hi i have also purchased this same device fake china Samsung s22+ ultra, i checked the device with benchmark and it was showing as Alps, then also discovered that it is an MTK 6580 DEVICE. I thought of an idea to flash the device with the original Samsung rom but somehow i have bricked it and won't turn on anymore and i cant find the right rom for it as the name of the device is not showing up with a rom when I do a search online. although it does show up with a scatter file. can anyone help with this?

I was able to upgrade my Magisk rooted Android 12 to 13. It's a Korean S22 SM-S901N. Followed the steps in the first post at the end for upgrading - transfer AP file to phone, patch it with magisk and flash with Odin with HOME_CSC. All okay 😊

Is it okay to skip over a firmware version and just install the latest one?

For example, my current firmware is S901BXXS2AVHD. There have been two firmware releases after it: S901BXXS2AVI7 and S901BXXU2BVJA (the latest one).

Should I first flash S901BXXS2AVI7, and only then flash the latest firmware? Or can I flash the latest one directly on top of my current firmware version, or will that cause problems?

It's fine to flash the latest firmware over an old firmware.

I'll put it up here one more time as I've been in touch with some other users having the same issue.

Does anyone have an idea why some of us cannot update?
For me I am stuch at AVG6 but some are on different versions (AVF5).

We have tried to undo the debloat, fully uninstall magisk, flashed the non patched AP files, and of course the patched versions.
I personally have tried every update since AVG6.

Odin is not giving any errors and all looks okay, after the 1st reboot "erasing" as normal then a second reboot, then a third with an error:

“Cannot load Android system. Your data may be corrupt. If you continue to get this message, you may need to perform a factory data reset and erase all user data stored on this device.”

Flashing back the software version that was running before (AVG6) boots as normal.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
Confirm problem on s22+ too
Stuck on avg6
Even cant boot the stock avg6 without


Anyone a solution on this?

Just upgraded my s22 with Exynos from Android 12 to 13 without wipe, following the instruction from the first message. Everything went well. All my data preserved.

    Code:
    Your warranty is now void.
    
    If you root your device, Your KNOX status will be tripped.
    You can still pass the safety net after you root if you follow the instructions.
    I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards although it is not really possible
    Please do some research if you have any concerns about doing this to your device

    How to flash official firmware? (not the root and unlock bootloader part!)

    You will need:

    A Galaxy S22 and common sense

    Samsung Odin (the flashing tool of the official firmware)

    https://dl2018.sammobile.com/Odin3-v3.14.1.zip

    You need to extract the zip file and you are going to use the file Odin3_v3.14.1.exe inside the folder.

    Samsung Android USB Driver for Windows


    Double-click and install the exe file.

    Samsung Official Firmware


    SM-S901B_EVR_S901BXXU1AVBF

    SM-S901U1_TMB_S901U1UEU1AVA7

    Download the platform you want to download to. (Windows)

    You need to extract the zip and double click open the file Bifrost.exe inside the folder.

    You need to fill in the Model, Region, press the Check for Updates button and the Download button.

    How to find the Model: on your phone → Settings → About Phone → The third row says the Model number and you need to remove the part with the part of /xx, for example, SM-S908B/DS and you only need to type SM-S908B

    How to find the Region: You can check the Region at this link https://samfrew.com/model/SM-S901B/ and
    https://samfrew.com/model/SM-S901E/ (thank for the reminder from @DarkestSpawn )


    You need to find find a three-letter word depending on your carrier and country and type it in Bifrost, for example, EVR

    Press the Check for Update button and download it with the Download button.

    Put it to a place you can easily find, ie. Desktop.

    After downloading it, find the file SM- S908x_x_xxxxxxxx_xxx.zip.enc4 on the place you put it and change the document format from .enc4 to .zip. Then, double click and extract the file.

    Open Odin3_v3.14.1.exe and turn off your phone. Connect a side of your USB to your PC/Laptop, keep pressing volume up and down together until you go to Download Mode. Put another side of the USB into your phone. When you arrived at Download Mode press volume up. Go back to Odin3_v3.14.1.exe:

    -Click on BL and select BL_S908xxxxxxxxxx.tar.md5

    -Click on AP and select AP_S908xxxxxxxxxxx.tar.md5

    -Click on CP and select CP_S908xxxxxxxxxx.tar.md5

    -Click on CSC and select CSC_OMC_xxxxxxxxxx.tar.md5

    Press Start to flash the firmware, after done, your device will automatically reboot to the system.

    How to unlock the bootloader?

    Go to your phone → Settings → About Phone → Software information → Press Build number 6 times until you see the notice “You’re now a developer”

    Go in Settings → Developer options → enable OEM unlocking

    Power off your phone first. Then, connect a side of your USB to your PC/Laptop, keep pressing volume up and down together until you go to Download Mode. Put another side of the USB into your phone.

    When you arrived at Download Mode, long press volume up until you see the black screen. Confirm to unlock the bootloader and you will erase your device.

    How to root your phone?

    After you unlock your bootloader, you set up your phone and make sure you do not sign in google account first. Install Magisk https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases/download/v24.1/Magisk-v24.1.apk on your phone. Oh yes, in case you do not know, you need to allow the app to install apps so that you can install the apk.

    Transfer AP_S908xxxxx.tar.md5 in the firmware you download from your PC/Laptop to your phone.
    Open Magisk on your phone and press the install button in the Magisk column. Select 'Select and Patch a File', 'Let's Go' and find the AP_S908xxxxx.tar.md5 and select it. You can have a cup of coffee if you like when you waiting for the patching of the file.

    After finishing the patching, you need to transfer the file magisk_patched-24xxx_xxxxx.tar in the Downloads folder back to your PC/Laptop.

    Turn off your phone. Connect a side of your USB to your PC/Laptop, keep pressing volume up and down together until you go to Download Mode. Put another side of the USB into your phone. When you arrived at Download Mode press volume up. Open Odin3_v3.14.1.exe on your PC/Laptop:

    Click on BL and select BL_S908xxxxxxxxxx.tar.md5

    -Click on AP and select magisk_patched-24xxx_xxxxx.tar

    -Click on CP and select CP_S908xxxxxxxxxx.tar.md5

    -Click on CSC and select CSC_OMC_xxxxxxxxxx.tar.md5

    When it finishes flashing it, it will automatically reboot and you can gain root access.

    Optional: If you want to have the safety net passed (most of the banking apps use it), then you need to install the zip
    as a Magisk module in Magisk https://github.com/kdrag0n/safetynet-fix/releases
    How? Go to Magisk → Modules → install from storage and select the zip you downloaded.



    How to update system without losing root and data?

    Download new firmware of the phone and update the Magisk App if it is not up to date. Unzip the firmware you download and transfer the AP file to your phone. Patch your AP file and transfer it back to your PC (in /sdcard/Download)

    Power off phone and reboot to Download mode


    Open Odin and put new magisk_patched file in the AP slot, the BL and CP from your new firmware into their respective slots and importantly *HOME_CSC* into the CSC slot.

    Press start and let Odin do it's stuff.

    When flashed, do not wipe.

    Press and hold Vol-down and Power
    As soon as screen appears, let go of all buttons.

    Within moments without any further user intervention your phone will reboot into your updated Magisk rooted mode, data intact.

    In regards to flashing firmwares from outside your region - the limitation is on your CPU. A series and M series Samsungs all use Exynos, so you can flash U, U1, F, B firmwares on them (probably more). U, U1 use Snapdragon and are interchangable, N and 0 use Snapdragon but I've never bothered to flash a N or 0 firmware on a Snapdragon phone to see if they are interchangable. E and B are interchangable (or F and B previously). If you are going to hop between models you MUST be using Patched Odin to skip the SHA256 check.

    So yeah, you can absolutely flash U1 firmware onto a U device, I bought a lot of 10 of them that are locked to T-Mo are are all on U1 now. If only unlocking them for use in Australia was as easy as swapping firmware and CSCs

    I, too, am a noob, but I believe having safety net passed is important if you want banking apps, or any app that uses confidential data. Safety net is used to keep your device from downloading harmful apps, and keeping your data safe. So in general some apps might not work if your device doesn't pass safety net.

    Edit: oh you're talking about the original post. Yes, its only showing Non US variants but it's the same process for flashing firmware.

    Thanks
