S20 Ultra Exynos Faster Performance After ATD3

Search This thread


Jul 24, 2018
Hello everyone,
I recently ordered a Samsung Galaxy S20 (SM-G980FLBDEUE) from Vodafone, without a contract / subscription, because I got a good price. Even if the phone is not blocked in the network, I understood that it will have Vodafone firmware and some applications from them.
Can I install stock firmware (which comes with phones that are not purchased from carriers) without losing warranty or affecting the phone in any way? I understood that the CSC must also be changed (to receive OTA updates), but I did not understand exactly how this can be done and what the order should be: change the CSC and then installed the stock firmware?
Thank you in advance!

    I do feel the same. The performance with ATD3 has been much better than ever before (the battery life is just the same, although I feel like the standby drain is hugely improved).

    The camera is finally able to focus accurately although still not as fast as those other phones with Dual PD PDAF, at least it is very accurate now. The performance though.. I'm not gonna lie that I do feel some lags before (especially on ATCT + numerous bugs like green tint on the camera app) but now it is flawless and I don't know why or how samsung fixed it.

    With that being said, samsung should just stop making half-baked phones since that'll ruin their reputation in the future if they kept doing that. A proper software shouldn't come out months after launch like this.

    ATBM: horrible autofocus, unreliable battery life
    ATCH: not-so-good autofocus, some stutters in the transitions and animations
    ATCT: still not-so-good autofocus accuracy, more stutters in the transitions and animations (a bit noticable), green tint on the camera app
    ATD3: flawless so far
    Could you please help me out with the guide as well?
    Thank you very much in advance

    There is no boot animation, no carrier app, and its clean. I'm telling you with this new firmware battery drain is better.
    You need to use samkey. You need to install on a laptop etc and buy credits. The best place to buy credits is ebay. It only takes 1 credit to change csc.

    Just bought a Samkey from eBay £6 for 3 credits worked wonders i now have BTU :D
