Yep, I went through the same. Although prepared for problems for the inital beta 1 upgrade and took complete backups, but for beta 2 though it would be easy and straightforward to flash as I was already on the same base build but my a** - didn't take any backups and of course the installation failed in critical phase. So, lessons learned, always remember to prepare for the worst!I had waited for nearly 1.5 hours before pulling the plug, Downloaded the OTA files several times after that to confirm the file is not corrupted and still flash got stuck at some point(4% to 47%). Finally used ODIN to install 11 firmware and lost much of my data in the process. Never thought I would lose data over a simple OTA update.
Did you flash the Android 12 VZW on your G988U1 model just like that ? I'm tempted to do it as i know it's normally possible to switch easily between U and U1 firmware. Even if i don't have a Verizon Sim Card...
Mine is a Canadian device. So I went W to U1 to get the beta and then U on 12.
Ok so you used the BL, AP, CSC (and not HOME_CSC), CP on ODIN ? but there's also a file called "Userdata" but i never saw one before when i flashed firmware, only the fourth first cases was needed. Did you use it ?Mine is a Canadian device. So I went W to U1 to get the beta and then U on 12.
I flashed using regular CSC to wipe, and I think it wiped all my apps, etc. But when it booted, it wanted my swipe unlock... Which didn't work!
So I had to do a factory reset after flashing. Been running great
You should be able to do it. At least I had to go back to Android 11 after beta 2 failed to flash and soft bricked the device.Hey,i Installed Android 12 one ui 4 stable. I want to go back to Android 11. Can I do this with odin? Will I lose access to Samsung services after installation? Can a phone become a brick? Will i receive updates in the future? I could not find answers on the Internet. Thanks in advance.
