I'm talking about flashing this j8. U1. You won't get the carrier changes needed to the phone unless you flash that first and get the prompt to reboot. After you get that just once you can then flash the U j8.
Right on. Thanks so much. I was in this weird spot where I figured since a new N975U1 is on u1 to begin with i didnt need to flash U1 on top of U1...i inserted sim without the sim change blue screen, flashed U thinking that would change things but it did not.
With a brand new N975U1 you have to flash U1 again, inserting sim changes it to TMB/TMB/XAA. Flashing U with TMB userdata on top of that gets all the tmobile bloat, which is what I wanted. Thanks so much!
