I figured it all out. Look back on page 4 and grab the sam pay fw all and install that first then use the other apk to update it. Install apks from a file explorer. Now I'm all set and working 100%

I did a reset and then flashed the files through Odin, and tried Samsung pay but it still didn't work. Then I tried the way you just said and it still didn't work. I did a factory reset, then tried the steps you said and it worked fine. Thanks. Maybe that should be added in the OP for anyone in the future. The Samsung pay app should be replaced by the apks posted before even trying to open Samsung pay or it wont work. Im all set now. Thanks

My girlfriend got an auto update from T-Mobile on her note 7 and it limited her phone to only charge up to 60%. So I found the stock firmware for the previous version and used Odin to flash it over. I also used package disabler pro to prevent future updates. I will link a download to all files from my Google drive as they took wayyy too long to download off of the original site. It will include, the stock firmware (there's 5 parts) Odin (latest version) and package disabler pro. Hopefully anybody reading this is familiar with Odin but if not please ask any questions I'm sure either I or someone else on here can answer them.

Above is also a guide on how to use Odin for those of you who arent familiar with it!

How did you use package disabler to prevent future update?

Confirmed method worked. Got green battery icon back and used the app to block updates. No annoying messages whenever I plug in or turn on phone. Thanks. But i can't get Samsung pay to work. Secure folder works.

How did you block the update and whats your phone model

Updated with the original files from OP and it worked with 100% battery charge currently and no Nag screens of recalled Note 7. I'm not sure for those who used the Samsung Cloud backup feature but it actually restored all apps and screens as b4 the FW restore to API4. I thought ODIN would wipe clean and reset the phone and ask the user to go thru New Setup.

Works like a charm!!!

I do not know what did you have in the files but it worked just fine!!! I have tried several times with identical files from another location
and no luck was getting fail every single time.
Thanks for the help!!!

Odin has never wiped the phone when using it to install firmware so Im not sure why you would think it would?

If You factory reset from the stock recovery that will wipe your device

Message when charging

Everything worked great, no more update messages. NOW, how do you get rid of the recall message when you plug in for charging? Am i the only one with this problem?
