Yes I'm unlocked and rooted. There just minor things I do not like about 11...Android 10 is just fine so I figured why change. I don't get excited about security updates. I don't do any banking from my device. Just a personal preference. I know several that are still on 2.5

What are some of the things you're getting and enjoying on your rooted bl unlocked device that you didn't before? Is native call recording one of the features?

My question is this, I have a note 20 ultra 5G Verizon. I flashed over the AIO firmware for the new update. I forgot to take my SIM card out and it still reads as Verizon under the CSC.

It's been awhile since I've done an Odin flash but I remember whenever you flashed a firmware it would change the CSC. Do I need to take my SIM card out first then flash the AT&t firmware or AIO firmware and then insert my SIM card again in order to change the Verizon CSC over to AIO/Att CSC?

There is no "VZW" or "ATT" or "TMB" or whatever firmware's on these devices. (They are only listed in the OP to a specific carrier to ID the current one so folks will know if they will get OTA)
The SIM card is what will dictate the options installed when flashed with Odin. As long as the SIM is on an active network of course

I'm one of those that flash from verizon U over to att U firmware. I'm on DUE1 and I'm not getting OTA update. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same thing?
If you take a look 2 posts back you'll see that there is no such thing as "VZW/ATT" firmware.

Since DUE1 was the revision for both VZW and ATT, you're ok there. I might try to clear the cache and data for the 2 software update apps, reboot and check for uprates again
