Re: Can't use older notes after Samsung Notes update.

JUMP TO SOLUTION
This update doesn't make sense to me. If I install, then it should be complete when finished installing. I feel Samsung is holding my notes hostage until I agree to the add on, which, as noted by many here, is "from an unknown source." This update is poorly executed, Samsung. LongHiker, I hope you are right that it's safe.

I fixed it. You have to click on the "package..." icon when it pops up and then click the setting gear that pops up. Then turn on the button allowing access to install. This is so dumb!!! Samsung is losing my interest real fast. There's so many cool things now on apple phones. Never thought I'd say that. Come on Samsung! Get it together!!!!

That allows you to install from an untrustworthy source. That is the issue.

Just open settings and select "Convert old notes" (something like that). After conversion, all notes become accessable again.

I found you.  I made a new post reposting your suggestion.  I was wanting to give you props. Thank you so much.  My husband was having a fit so I had to save the day.  I found your post.  Told him what you suggested and it worked.  Thanks!!
