Flash S9 firmware (latest update bricked it - IMS Service)

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hello - So those of you who have updated to the latest firmware and see the message IMS service keeps stopping, no solution out there is going to help you. If you purchased your phone in the US and are using it outside the country, its pretty much useless.

 

I am in the processing of now flashing my phone with the last firmware: G965U1UES6CSH1_G965U1OYM6CSH1_XAA.zip

 

Can anyone please advise if this worked for them?

Yes me too please. Surely there is a solution here. If it means reverting to a previous firmware for the time being then so be it.

In Australia this worked for me using Region XAA, with firmware ending H1.

 

I now have full use of the phone (S9+) restored as it was before the firmware update to H7.

You have S9 model or 9+?   

S9 is G960U1 and S9 Plus is G965U1

While I am glad this is good for you, this should not be marked a solution. Everyone around the world affected by this shouldn't need to learn to manually flash their phone and risk messing something up like that. A solution would be Samsung fixing the issue.
