1. Storage size doesn't matter when it comes to firmware. There aren't different firmwares for different storage sizes- Is the firmware for the 256 and 512 and the 5G and none 5G the same ? for me kinda doesn't make sense as the hardware is different, however Samsung may include the whole package in one but I need to confirm this.
- If the swappable firmware is possible, I couldnt fine here or at Sam Mobile a firmware that is dedicated to and came from the Officially Unlocked phones ( SIM Free ).
What I want is to flash my phone with the official unlocked firmware version of the 512GB which suppose to be for the model N975U1 to get rid of the carrier logo and apps as I understood
Finally my phone updated itself to the android 10 but not the 11, the Baseband Version is N975USQS4CTG1 ( attached photo ),
I noticed when I compare it to my other officially unlocked Note 9 is this one include a line of " Service Provider Software Version " which make sense where all the bloatware comes from.
Thanks in advance
Thanks for the quick reply,1. Storage size doesn't matter when it comes to firmware. There aren't different firmwares for different storage sizes
2. The 5G Note 10+ has a totally different model number. So yes, that's totally different firmware.
3. Yes, SamMobile definitely has N975U1 firmware. And the OP also states that you can get it via Frija or the other similar various Samsung firmware download tools
Did you flash them with the Offically Unlocked Firmware ?, If you did so, Can you kindly share with me which one you used ?
N975U + OYN isn't a valid model + CSC combination. And you want N975U1 anyways.Thanks for the quick reply,
I never heard about Frija before, I used to use ODIN years ago,
I checked the Frija and it doesn't find any update, See photo
I tried with my other older note and it shows the same.
Sam Mobile have lots of Firmware that is not know to cover which version of carrier, There are many "USA" and "Unknown", I may assume the USA is for the unlocked ones but can't risk bricking my phone, See attached photo or check the link
Can you kindly lead me to the right Official Unlocked Firmware that can be installed on my current Baseband Version ?
If you're not in the US, then N975U1 would probably be best
I have successfully updated my Note 10+ firmware using Odin to SM-N975U1. I am happy cos all my applications, gallery personal data are still intact. No more ATT nonsense.
None of them are "attached" to a carrier. U1 firmware is made in "preconfigured" versions that have optimizations for best performance on that specific carrier's network. If you want plain U1 firmware with no optimizations, that's XAASo I have a quick question. I already know how to do this stuff for the most part. I'm honestly still surprised that this version of the phone is basically stuck without much development because Samsung has kept the bootloader under lock an key.
Anyways, I have a N975U that I assume has the sprint firmware in Canada, and its straight up loosing its **** every hour or so saying " looking for sprint connection " Works just fine on the Roger network except for for every hour on the hour.
So I figured I would try flashing the N975U1 firmware to see if this would stop this from happening but looking on the Galaxy Firmware site I am not sure which one to download. It lists all kinds of variants to the firmware like USC, SPR, XAA ect.
Is there a specific one I should download that is not attached to a carrier?
Got it, Thanks for the help.
Hello, I want to change the room of my SM-N975U and place it with a SM-N975U1, can you tell me how I would do it because I downloaded the 4 files from sammobile and it won't let me flash.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.

- 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
- Sé que los servidores / espejos de AFH a veces pueden ser inestables, por lo que si desea descargar la última versión de cualquier firmware que esté buscando, puede hacerlo a través de SamFirm o Frija (muchos enlaces e hilos aquí en XDA). Pago por una suscripción a un sitio que obtiene versiones beta y también obtiene los lanzamientos oficiales (generalmente) antes de que lleguen a SamFirm, así que de ahí provienen mis archivos. Sin embargo, no tengo ancho de banda ilimitado en el sitio, y también lleva bastante tiempo descargar los archivos, comprimirlos y subirlos a AFH. Y hago subprocesos como este para cada modelo Sx y Note x, por lo que no cargaré todas las versiones de actualización. Las únicas compilaciones completas que subo son aquellas en las que obtengo acceso a un nuevo cargador de arranque y / o versión de Android antes de que lleguen a SamFirm.
- Puede obtener DATOS DE USUARIO de SamFirm para todo menos AT&T y Cricket; esos archivos nunca estarán en SamFirm. Así que intentaré cargar siempre al menos un USERDATA por incremento de cargador de arranque para esos operadores, y también cargaré las compilaciones completas si AT&T es el único proveedor que obtiene esa compilación específica, porque no podrás encontrar la archivos en cualquier otro lugar.
- Para USERDATAS (todos los demás se explican por sí mismos):
AIO = Cricket
CCT = Xfinity Mobile (Comcast)
CHA - Spectrum Mobile (Charter)
TMK = Metro PCS
- el procedimiento correcto para cambiar del firmware de un operador a otro es:
1. Actualice el paquete de firmware U1 completo, incluido el CSC no HOME
2. Al arrancar, inserte una SIM del operador cuyo firmware desea
3. Esté atento a la ventana emergente que dice "reiniciar para aplicar la nueva configuración del operador", etc., y hágalo
4. Después de que se complete el reinicio, reinicie de nuevo al modo de descarga y actualice el paquete de firmware U completo, con el archivo USERDATA del operador cuyo firmware desea
nope. Can't change US firmware to a UK CSC
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
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.
