Yea this is true I even got the 2nd Android 12 update it's a bit faster but still nowhere near 3.0
They really dropped the ball and I'm gonna have to do the same if the patch isn't out soon. Any advice for a newbie? Main question I have is will I need to dump my data back onto the phone after this? Or do I have the option to preserve my data on the device itself so I don't have to dump from backup? Of course, I'm going do a backup the device just in case. I really just want to know what I'm about to dive into.
Could you get me a link to that? I have the US unlocked variant as well. Could really use the help.To downgrade what firmware should I download...I m a bit confused. I m in Usa and have an unlocked version. From sammobile website it has att, tmo, verizon etc but i dont see the unlocked? Couple other options say TMK and USC...no idea what those mean. Any Ideas?
EDIT: NVM figured it out. There is a thread on here with U1 firmware which is for unlocked variant. However Home CSC gave me an error and phone wouldnt boot. But there was an option for factory reset, did that and booted fine.
Yes, you will be able to downgrade. just did it myself.I am considering to Downgrade also,
just can't stand the fact that a basic functionality like Google Play Store is not working correctly,
I've applied the December Patch pushed by Samsung, would i be able to downgrade (Clean) to Android 11 with the ODIN method? it is mentioned that uses who applied the latest security Patch may fail to downgrade.
I have the latest BUL1 Release, and Model SM-G998B
If you flash official firmware via Odin, it will not trip Knox.I just updated to android 12 and I have extreme battery drain. Allready tried wipe cache and optimize apps in recovery. It doen't help...In Android 11 my battery last almost 2 days, now I get only 8-10 hours. I am considering to downgrade.
Now, maybe a stupid question. With official firmware downgrade, Knox will be trigered ? I use google pay and don't want to loose this functionality. Also it will factory reset the phone? Should I backup my personal data to a external memory ?
