hopefully you guys figured it out by now but to clear things up...

- A326U, A326U1 and A326W can be cross flashed using patched ODIN meaning you can flash U1 (XAA) firmware onto a U or W model and so forth.

- A326U, A326U1 and A326W cannot be bootloader unlocked unless on rev1 firmware using paid service.

- A326U, A326U1 and A326W (or any Samsung for that matter) cannot downgrade firmware meaning you cannot be on rev2 then try to flash rev1 firmware hence before someone posted an error something like "SW Rev Check Fail Fused 2 > 1" which means it was on rev2 trying to flash rev1 firmware which isn't possible.

- On newer devices you cannot flash factory/combination firmware without a token which again can only be obtained via a paid service, this is even when your bootloader is unlocked (if you unlocked via paid service.) Hence why the person posted an error that said something like "please get approval to use factory binary".
So if the FW on a SM-A236U phone is U6 or U7, it means that XAA U6/S6 or XAA U7/S7 can only be loaded with a e-token? Is there any suggested paid service to do this that is not a scam?

Thanks. Could flash same binary version of XAA but unfortunately it seems the CSC stays at DSH for some reason. It flashes OK though and it is the less bloaty FW that comes with SM-A236U1. Also tried the Canadian XAR for same binary version. Also worked but still Carrier_ID stays at DSH???!! So is my only recourse to pay some unlock service for the network unlock code? Any suggested service...?

    I am also going to try using Frija to download the TMK version which is apparently another US unlocked variant Firmware to see if that might flash and go from there
    Thanks. Will post if I find a solution.

    T Mo and Samsung are not playing nice. I was able to completely remove the T Mo app with the Samsung A21, but no luck with the A32 5G (using ADB). Also removed over 200 junk apps from the A32 5G. My goal was to get it as bare-bone as the A21. Yet the A32 still pull about 1.3 GB of RAM vs. 930 MB for the A21, with the major difference being Android 11 vs. Android 10. Apparently, the claim about better memory management in Android 11 does not pan out in actual use. The Android 6 in my ZTE V8 Pro is lightning fast compared to Android 11.

    Most people are not aware of the tremendous amount of spyware that are hidden on these Samsung phones (Amazon, Microsoft, etc). The OS is free, but informed users should have the option to easily remove these junk apps with a few keystrokes.

    I tried last night but it wouldn't flash Odin kept failing it, so I'm going to try to find a different combo Firmware and re-up with the new link to it once I know the new one works.... In the meantime y'all could try that to see if you get a different result with flashing it
    I'm new to this device and still figuring things out. Meanwhile, came across this post that gives different versions of Odin to try with. https://www.droidwin.com/create-samsung-combination-firmware-flash-it-via-odin/

    Did nothing special, same procedure as with all other Samsung phones. Flash U1 firmware on top of U firmware. Don't see what's so difficult about it. @hyelton also mentioned how he did it as well.

    Using Odin Patched 3B v3.14.1 and I’m receiving a truncate message stating the following:

    sw rev check fail [vbmeta[fused 2 > bi

    I’m using the SM-A326U1 for Product Code TMB from April 19, 2021. The phone now boots up with a blue screen ”An error has occurred while updating the device software”. Any suggestions?

    CSC seems to fail at boot.img per Odin
    CSC_HOME fails at preloader.img

    ——— Update ——-
    Flashed latest TMK using Patched Odin 3.14.1 and the device is functional again.
