I recommend to all of you to sideload this oneui home update. Sooo smooth and fast

This only affects the launcher, correct?

I don't use the default Samsung Launcher, I use Nova Launcher which is already very smooth.

But if this impacts other animations on the device, then I am willing to try it. Also once I do update the APK from here, will it continue to auto-update from the device if Samsung releases updates on the Samsung Store? Or do I need to keep updating the APK?

I will download the firmware from India and use the CSC ZTO then. Thanks.

EDIT: worked perfectly!
So did it work four you to flash the latest firmware in exception of the HOME_CSC? In my case i´m from Chile and im about to do the same cause my actal firmware is OWO.

Edit: Installed MEXICO firmware (including HOME_CSC) as is OWO too. Worked perfectly!

This latest update is more that a security patch. You can tell by the build number and size

This is a joke right? It's clearly more than just a Security Patch Update. Typical Security Updates are just a bit bigger than 100MB. This is 500+ MB on the Snapdragon model and almost 400MB on the Exynos model.

They included bugfixes and optimizations.

I love how Samsung tells you almost nothing about what is being updated. Why even have a change log if you are going to include ambiguous statements about things that could, may, might be updated without saying what they are. Lazy and useless.

Same update just landed in South Africa. Unusually quickly. The previous one came out in mid to late June.

    I know, But my question is this website is not from officially samsung right..
    Also samfw uploaded all versions for almost all csc then why not in CHO?
    Samfw only uploads what is available. CHO isn't available because Samsung hasn't issued it.

    Your options:

    1.) Wait.
    2.) Flash as per others instructions.
    Last question i want to ask if we update from odin manually does it means we root our device?
    No root.
    If you choose HOME CSC (inside the zip) you will keep all data also

    Samfw is not developed by Samsung, but it only uploads official Samsung firmwares.
    So if i am going to flash oxm/xsg firmware.
    Is there any problem with my phone?
    Because my csc is owo/cho.
    Also i read in google if we use our device in different region we have to use patched odin. Is that right??
    OWO/CHO is optimized if you live in Latin America. If you are living in UAE, better flash OXM/XSG anyway.

    Patched Odin is only for USA devices, you don't need it. Both Latin America and Middle East devices have the same model number (S908E), so normal Odin works fine.
    Android 13 beta one ui 5.0 is out. Anybody gets this?

    In this thread, you can discuss and share the Mega links of new firmware (OFFICIAL STOCK) for the Galaxy S22 Ultra!
    NO CUSTOM ROM's and/or ROOT-talk

    How to flash the firmware to your phone:


    1. Extract (un-rar) the firmware file (i.e. to folder C:\Odin) ***
    2. Download Odin v3.14.4
    3. Extract the Odin ZIP file (i.e. to folder C:\Odin)
    4. Open Odin
    5. Power OFF your S22 Ultra.
    6. Reboot Phone in Download Mode: Connect USB-cable to your computer. Hold down "Volume up" and "Volume down" at same time. While holding down, connect the USB-cable to your phone. Or use the command "adb reboot-bootloader".
    7. Wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
    8. Add the firmware files to their designated slots (AP in AP, BL in BL, CP in CP, HOME_CSC in CSC). USERDATA stays EMPTY!
    10. Click the start button, sit back and wait few minutes for the device to automatically restart.

    ** You can always find the LATEST firmware in message #14 (hoping to change to Post 2 )
    Latest firmware for the Galaxy S22 Ultra

    This is the latest ROM for Multi-CSC OXM and can be used for ALL CSC's mentioned in Multi-CSC OXM!
    This is an official Samsung ROM so KNOX will not be triggered!
