For those who aren't already aware, N975U is the model number of all of the US carrier versions of the Note 10+. The N975U1 is the model number of the same device, but sold by Samsung SIM unlocked and with no carrier bloatware. Firmware is 100% interchangeable among these models: any U or U1 firmware version can be flashed to any U or U1 device at any time, assuming that you're not trying to downgrade the bootloader. A "U to U" or "U1 to U1" flash does not require a factory reset, but changing from one firmware to the other will require one. Also, U firmware is identical for the 4 base files (AP, BL, CP, CSC) for each individual build, no matter which carrier it comes from. So if you download 2 different carrier versions of the exact same build, the 4 base files will be identical. Where the firmware differs is in the USERDATA file - that's where the carrier bloatware and customizations reside.

This is not a "beginner's guide to Odin flashing" type post/thread, so I won't list basic, step-by-step flashing instructions. My threads are geared towards those who already know what they're doing. If you're new to manually flashing Samsung firmware, I recommend you consult one of the "beginner's" posts/threads - there are tons of them here on XDA.

Happy flashing!

U1 firmware: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=297980

NOTES:

- DON'T QUOTE THE OP WHEN YOU REPLY, kthx :)

- I have an identical thread for the Note 10 if you're interested

- My zips are compressed extra small for space and bandwidth savings. The default Windows extractor can't handle it, so you'll need a 3rd party tool like 7zip, WinRAR, etc

- My naming method for folders on AFH is: build - bootloader - Android version
So "SAT - 1 - 9.0" means the full build number ends in SAT, it's bootloader version 1, and it's Android 9.0. When bootloader and Android versions increment, the first build to have those changes will have its folder notated appropriately.

- HOME CSC file keeps data intact; using the other CSC will wipe data. Flashing USERDATA will also wipe data

- I know AFH servers/mirrors can be wonky sometimes, so if you want to download the latest version of whatever firmware you're seeking yourself, you can do so via SamFirm or Frija (plenty of links and threads here on XDA). I pay for a subscription to a site that gets beta builds and also gets the official releases (usually) before they hit SamFirm, so that's where my files come from. However, I don't have unlimited bandwidth on the site, and it's also quite time consuming to download the files, zip them up, and upload them to AFH. And, I do threads like this for every single Sx and Note x model - so I won't be uploading every single update version. The only full builds that I upload are ones where I get access to a new bootloader and/or Android version early, before they hit SamFirm.

- You can get USERDATAs from SamFirm for everything but AT&T and Cricket- those files will never be on SamFirm. So I'll try to always upload at least one USERDATA per bootloader increment for those carriers, and I'll also upload any full builds if AT&T is the only carrier to get that specific build, because you won't be able to find the files anywhere else.

- For USERDATAS (all the others are self explanatory):

AIO = Cricket
CCT = Xfinity Mobile (Comcast)
CHA - Spectrum Mobile (Charter)
TMK = Metro PCS

- the correct procedure for switching from one carrier's firmware to another is:
1. Flash full U1 firmware package including non HOME CSC
2. Upon boot, insert a SIM of the carrier whose firmware you want
3. Watch for the popup that says "reboot to apply new carrier settings" etc, and do it
4. After that restart completes, reboot back to Download mode and flash the full U firmware package, with the USERDATA file of the carrier whose firmware you want

Where are people even getting these? I've been mashing their SmartSwitch server for N975U1UEU1ASGO/N975U1OYM1ASGO/N975U1UEU1ASGO for nearly a week now and it's still not available.

for note 10 and 10+ :
Open up the S/W Installation Program by executing the "Odin3 v3.13.3.exe"
* Note : "Odin v3.13.2 or above" checks MD5 checksum just after file selection.

Move over as i am here as well, definitely will see me adding Odin files as well, preordered 3 AT&T Note10 Plus 512, 256 GB lol. Scheduled for Wednesday delivery, got my FedEx tracking.
@iBowToAndroid
Thanks for sharing files! They will be very helpful since I had to port back over to AT&T from tmo because of such poor coverage where I live.
@Venom0642 look forward to you sharing as well

I think everyone sometimes mistakes your excitement for bragging lol (we've had this conversation before). I guess most people don't have $3000 extra! Your contributions are appreciated
 
Just not understanding what you're looking to be congratulated for. Really didn't see the purpose of that post
My bad what i ment is i have a Note10 Plus as well and will help with Odin files,i was typing the above in the beach was in water lol, anyway looking forward in helping out.

    It looks like a few things need to be made clear, even in a group of people smart enough to root, customize, and tweak their big $$$ devices.

    1) While this section IS for "discussion", it's actually supposed to be discussion about THIS DEVICE, not calling users rapists, not sexual innuendos about your prom date, not anything UNRELATED to this device.

    2) Don't be THAT member who runs their mouth and then reports another member for running their mouth.

    3) Even non-development section users are required to follow Forum Rules... not that anyone smart enough to tweak their device should need a development forum set of rules to understand the basics of respect, kindness, and being helpful over being rude, insulting, and disrespectful.

    4) If someone starts trouble, be part of the solution- not part of the problem; simply REPORT the comment. Don't engage them, throw fuel on the flame then get bent when you're burned by the fire you helped create. Report, move on, enjoy your day.

    5) All future comments in violation of the rules will be deleted and the posting accounts reviewed for restriction or removal for repeated violations.

    So let's keep the discussion on the 10+ :good:

    Thanks for everyone's cooperation.

    tl;dr

    If your comment isn't respectful, helpful, related to this device, or violates the rules, don't post it.
    Report the trouble, don't become part of it.
    Be kind, respectful and helpful.
    Keep the drama llama stuff on all the social media platforms, Xda is for developing devices, not buttwaffles.

    I just did the firmware flash to AT&T for my unlocked 10+ and Wifi calling works. Keeping my fingers crossed that it sticks!

    ---------- Post added at 10:07 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:03 AM ----------

    I've been out the flashing game for a while now. Could someone kindly direct me to a step by step method? Do i use the files provided from the op or use the Sammobile? Any help would be appreciative

    Just use the files from the OP. Worked for me now.

    Used the following instructions from the International thread to get the steps:

    1. Extract (un-rar) the firmware file (i.e. to folder c:\Odin) ***
    2. Download Odin v3.13.3
    3. Extract Odin ZIP file (i.e. to folder c:\Odin)
    4. Open Odin v3.13.3
    5. Power OFF your Note10+
    6. Reboot Phone in Download Mode (1st plug-in USB-cable to your Note10+!!!), push Volume Up + Volume Down buttons, while pushing them plug-in USB-cable to PC
    7. Wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
    8. Add the firmware files to their designated slots
    9. Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
    10. Click the start button, sit back and wait few minutes

    Extract the firmware files from the OP. You should get 5 files:

    AP (System &Recovery)

    BL (Bootloader)

    CP (Modem / Radio)

    CSC_*** (Country / Region / Operator)

    HOME_CSC_*** (Country / Region / Operator)

    I used USERDATA as well for AT&T. Use CSC_*** if you want to do a clean flash or HOME_CSC_*** if you want to keep your apps and data.

    You're gonna say that and not share? Lol.

    Threads gonna go to **** with us fighting now.
    Go to settings/apps/ then do a search for system and find systemui click on it then got to notifications in there scroll all the way down there click on phone restarted. Then set it to Silent and minimized.
