    I got Odin to recognize my phone. It got a fail and it says Complete(Write) operation failed. I did some searching and a suggestin was to have USB debugging turned on in developer options. Should I do that and try again?

    I thought you said above in your instructions to use Home CSC file to save data? Should I be using CSC_OMC_OYN? I took a screen shot after it failed and took phone off of computer

    I did make a back up. Is it better to use the csc_omc_oyn in the CSC slot since we are trying to get rid of the old Sprint firmware?

    Are you running a firewall on your PC? I got that error and found out it was my firewall blocking access to the port.

    I will try to disable the security (windows 10 and running windows defender and Malwarebytes). Odin seems to recognize my phone and process starts, so this sounds like it could be my problem. Before I posted I went to Best Buy to see the Samsung rep. They said Samsung staff were pulled from stores due to covid, but I managed to get the reps email. He said they stopped flashing phones in the store before they were pulled out. He suggested doing factory reset and re-insert sim card to get phone to update, which did not work. I will update my progress later today. Thank you all again for the input!!

    How did you make out with flashing the firmware?

    okay I just tried again after i disabled windows firewall, antivirus and malwarebytes. It failed again. Odin recognized my phone. On the first try it seemed to just sit there for long time then I got the failure message. 2nd try it told me "complete(write) operation failed". I have tried all 3 USB ports and two different cables. I read that the kies (program??) can cause this error and needs to be disabled? I do not know how to do that...Going to try my old laptop next...

    Hey I just saw a post of your from April 2020 where you helped someone flash their firmware and it sounds like they were having a similar problem as me. You you told them to hit the reboot bootloader tab in odin before hitting start. Here is a screen shot. Bought a "New" & "Unlocked" Samsung Note 9...I Thought!-reboot-bootloader.png

    I also have another question. With Samfirm I can only download the t-mobile firmware. I suppose this is all the same base samsung firmware, correct? I found a link to an AT&T release from January 2020 to Android 10 with the same 2.0 ui (N960USQU3DTA4). Since I am on AT&T should i be trying to use this patch instead?

    Hi, the only time you hit reboot bootloader, if for any reason the phone gets stuck while firmware downloads like half way , you need to hit that to restart the phone for Odin again or it won't allow you to flash again.

    Try dowmload frija tool also see if it has it

    Okay I tried my old lap top and followed same instructions as above. Odin said "pass!" Phone has the blue screen with droid figure and says installing system update. It has been about 10 minutes. Do i leave the USB cod in the phone and leave it connected to computer? About how long should it take?

    This is the steps :

    Windows computer needed

    Latest Odin can Google it from XDA Forums and download the latest should be 3.13.1 or 3.14.1 / or Frija tool or samfirm (i usually download both)

    Download samfirm v0.4.1 tool and frija, extract it with 7zip.

    You will extract files for Odin 3.14.1once download with 7zip and will do same for firmware with 7zip .

    Put your model number SM-.N960U.region TMB or SPRT select check for updates , then download the FIRMWARE , extract the FIRMWARE with 7zip.

    There will be 4 files after you extract the firmware


    BL

    AP

    CP

    CSC

    Each of those files will go in Odin when you open to the corresponding slots

    BL

    AP

    CP

    CSC USE HOME CSC FIILE TO SAVE DATA

    Home data slot dont put nothing

    connect your phone with cable to computer , once the files are in its slots hit start, once done you'll see pass in Odin and it will reboot





    *Make sure you put phone in download mode
    *If dont see your phone connected in Odin change cables or ports in computer .
    I finally got it to work by using my old computer and followed the steps above. Phone took about 1/2 hour to restart. After I set it back up it updated over the air and now has Android 10 with July 1, 2020 patch and 2.1 UI installed. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! and sorry for a million posts/questions!
