Just got CWE6 for AT&T locked firmware.
I refuse to update my S22. I'm just waiting til someone comes along and finishes BadSpin on it or adds on to it...so we can get full root. Kernel r/w is still good. But we need a little bit more. Lol. Oh and the S23.....I'll be dead if that goes anything higher than April firmware.
I currently have the option of getting the 8gb RAM/ 256 version for $200 less hence my question...
I see it like this as far as root. I have a rooted Note 9..S20+..Note10+...Note 20ultra..S10+...what have I done after root? Absolutely nothing....but flex and say yep they are rooted.I refuse to update my S22. I'm just waiting til someone comes along and finishes BadSpin on it or adds on to it...so we can get full root.

You just haven't found the right thing to occupy your mind in. The chase is always 100 percent fun. But what's 1000 percent better is breaking up what Samsung calls security and protection. Minus the encryption stuff. You would be surprised how much you can see in plain sight and literally PLAIN SIGHT. The best place to look is /etc. If you ASKS me, it's hilarious.

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
