I downloaded the BQK2 firmware, I tried to flash it through odin while phone was in download mode and it wouldn't work. I also tried the vol+bix+pow and install update.zip but none of these would work and I'm still on BQK3-sprint.
I keep getting errors, I've searched throughout this page as well as all across google.
Even the people that are on Sprint, some aren't having issues with the CCT, VZW and ATT.


Was hoping someone could enlighten me on what I am doing wrong.
Thank you!

EDIT:
I was using the wrong ODIN. I went to odindownload . com and downloaded the V3.12 and it worked. Happy Camper!

Hope everyone had a Very Merry Holiday.

Installed the latest and so far ran into 2 problems: 1. WiFi Calling for AT&T seems to hang saying its loading but never goes through and 2. the Samsung keyboard cannot download the Espanol ES keyboard. I assume 2. is more due to this being a beta but the WiFi Calling problem is new to me.

Okay, i must be doing something wrong because Odin keeps failing... so i gotta ask, which Odin version should i use? Also which file do i use in CSC?

CSC_OYN_N950UOYN2BQK2_CL12461033_QB15680825_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
or
USERDATA_ATT_N950USQS2BQK2_CL12461033_QB15680825_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5 ?

I feel like i'm one step from Oreo glory here :) any help is greatly appreciated!

Just installed the CQLB .. did NOT do full erase (data/cache) - reset .. everything seems to be running real smooth so far. My Gear 3 Frontier connected no issues .. same with my Gear 360. Have not received any Security errors at this time (knock knock knock).

Right now .. leaving this as is, will give it a hard testing over the next couple of days.

Yes! Thank you [emoji106] that worked! I can't get rid of an S-health notification, but it's all good. Kept my data and everything [emoji4]

Scratch that...seems like I have some more notification options in Oreo[emoji106]

One quirk I seem to be having with the CQLB build .. the keyboard will pop up when exiting a program and back to like my Apps .. I'm in an area in qhich the keyboard would not be needed, but it's there !

Have not figured out yet how to stop that happening.

You should post EXACTLY what you were on, along with what you did. It would help MANY here.

I think what I said is self explanatory !

If I went to CQLB .. would mean I was originally on BQK2 - OTA to BQL5 - then OTA to CQLB .. didn't erase anything .. did not do Factory Reset after installing .. nothing.

I have the same issue. And I did a clean install.

EXACTLY what he was on and EXACTLY what he did is already in the OP. There's only one path to CQLB.

Are you sure you don't have a Note8 clone? All the genuine firmware starts with N950U, not APR950U. That or you're trolling us.

I am fine, just figure it would help others out. The OP has nothing about the LATEST FW.
