a) This is the S22 Ultra we are talking about
True. I really don't care if I see the Verizon logo when it boots. I do like some of Verizon's apps though. Like Call Filter and My Verizon Apps. I actually use them. The only reason my daughter has the U1 version, is because Verizon didn't have the color she wanted.
Same, said it was a "critical update", whatever that means. ATT rarely, if ever, provides notes on updates, so that caught my eye. Not sure why really, as the previous version was running fine for me, as is this new update. Either way, all good
It was critical to add a lowercase "a" at the end of the build number. Gotta spice it up.
So, here's something interesting... Just checked for an update again, since it's now May, thinking perhaps the latest monthly security patch was available, and it downloaded another update... I'm thinking, wow, Samsung is on it with the May patch... nope, reverting BACK to CWCE, from CWCEa... Ok.... run through, power back up, all is well. Check for update again, you know, just for fun, and yup... another one... CWCE to CWCEa. Again. Never seen anything like this before, but apparently there is an endless loop between the two builds right now. All is well on CWCEa, and I'm done checking for now. AT&T is drunk.
I believe it is carrier specific, yes. Only AT&T for now, that I know of. I've seen multiple monthly patches pushed before from carriers across the board, but never one with a lower case letter at the end. Who knows...
Very strange. I used the dialer code trick to pull it this time, and have for the last several updates with no issues. I've also done the whole date change thing before to pull an update, and once I've gotten it and changed the date back all has been fine. Sucks that something as simple as that could hammer your phone. Hope you get it resolved as painlessly as possible.
There's VERY little chance you'll brick (The only way that I know you can is pulling the USB cable when flashing), that aside, it'll just error before the flash could happen.How do i know which firmware to download? Im a complete beginner... i have an att locked (making payments) 22 ultra sm-s908U. I was told to get the u1 firmware because its unlocked and i can use rcs thru jibe not att, but i also was told i need to get the firmware that matches the model number which is U. I may be overthinking, but it's confusing. And all the U options are labeled by carrier, there doesn't seem to be an unlocked firmware for my U phone. And if i were to get an U1 firmware, there are a few options with no explanation on the differences and which to get. Don't get me started on the advice to look for XAA firmware, because i don't see that anywhere lol. Apologies if this seems ridiculous, i just don't want to brick my phone
