It's August 24, 2021 and have not received the July nor August 2021 security patches on my unlocked Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5g (SM-N986U1) running on the T-Mobile network. What gives?
Also I bought the phone direct from Samsung and my expectation is that they will update the unlocked variant .. otherwise I would have bought the TMO version, so again yes I fault Samsung.
You seem to have the need to convince me, don't bother as you won't. I've been doing this a very long time..also still doesn't explain the tablet now does it ?
I considered that approach but I really just want my device to work without tinkering. Do you mind if I ask how difficult it was? I have done the whole rooting and alternate firmware years ago and typically use XDA as my guide.
Easy. First I have an unlocked version of the phone. In software information under 'service provider software version' at the end I have XAA. Go to sammobile website find the version update for you. Mine was USA carrier unknown. Download the firmware and Odin tool. I didn't loose data because for the csc part use the one that starts with 'home'. There is also a video on YouTube I followed from 'BredzPro'. Overall took around 10 mins.
