Hello Samsung family,

My friend works at a thrift store and she claims a department store donated an S22 ultra. My friend would like me to fix it, and I need your help.

When you turn it on, it boots straight into Downloading... mode. I tried to boot it into the bios by soft resetting it (VOLDOWN + POWER) and turning it on while holding VOLUP. It looks like it's about to work, SAMSUNG and Galaxy are displayed, then there is a droid image with a progress bar below it, it loads 25%, then says Error! and boots back into Downloading mode. The Downloading screen reads:

<!>
partition boot
Reason Calculated Hash of (boot) : F4D2547D1, (VEMETA) : AF81F87CE4
SAMSUNG boot, S908U1UEU2BVK1, 58738289R
VBMETA S908U1UEU2AVHF, 55158749R
Downloading...
Do not turn off target
Do not disconnect USB cable during the software update!
Volume Down Key + Side key for more than 7 secs : Cancel (restart phone)

There is one more screen I can get to on the phone. If I soft reset it, and then hold VOLUP and VOLDOWN, it still boots into a Downloading screen, but there is more information displayed. After I Continue with the VOLUP button, the information on that screen is as follows:

CARRIER : XAA
RPMB fuse Set
RPMB PROVISIONED
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
FRP LOCK : ON
KG STATUS : CHECKING
WARRANTY VOID : 0x0
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT : ENABLE
LCS STATE : PROD(3)
RP SWREV : B2(2,2,1,1,0,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,0,0,0,0)
RP SWREV : K2(2,2,2,2) S2
SECURE DOWNLOAD : ENABLE
SPU:5, AR:2
DID : 200432BE907F9711

Then below that is the Downloading... with the down arrow icon that is the same as the first screen, except it also displays a barcode with the DID in the bottom right.

Here is what I have tried. I downloaded Odin v3.14.4 on my Windows. When I plug the phone in, Windows does chime with the device connected sound. Odin recognizes it, and prints "<ID:0/005> Added!!" to the Log. I downloaded Frija to get the firmware. I downloaded the firmware for "SM-S908U1" with the carrier "XAA." It gives me the BL, AP, CP and CSC files. I select the respective files in Odin, with only the "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" options checked. Then, it looks like it's working, but it hangs on flashing "super.img" for a really long time. That's where I'm at right now. EDIT: I'm not using a thunderbolt cable. I'm using a typical USB A to C cable.

I will keep my computer from sleeping and leave it all night to see if it can flash all 8 gigabytes to the phone. At this point, I'm not sure if it's working or not, so I figured I would come to your community and ask for help. Does anyone have experience with this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Below is the Log output from Odin:
