    Samsung is completely useless in this, I have a SM-N9600 Note 9 that has never been updated/can't be updated. All I keep hearing is carrier this carrier that but I am using a straight talk sim and this phone as far as I know is unlocked and not tied to a specific carrier (the straight talk service I AM using uses ATT towers) I upgraded from an s7 Edge (G-935f) and it updated with no issues. This Note 9 I get nothing. I don't get it. I want android 9! lol

    Have you already tried using Smart Switch to update, or does that also tell you it's up to date?

    Also, has the phone ever been rooted?

    Hello, I'm a little bit desperate over here, I'm trying to update my Note 9, it would never update by itself, Smart Switch never worked, the changing date trick didn't as well. I don't know how to use Odin, so I found in one of your treads the option of using firmware.science to update patch by patch, the device was running on N960USQS1ARI5, according to that site the next version would be the N960USQU1ARI9, I downloaded it to my sd card and updated the phone, no problem with that.

    After that I tried to install the next version, which would be the N960USQU1ARJ2, but couldn't find the proper file to download. I just cannot find any record of the N960USQU1ARI9 on the whole Internet, like at all, zero mention of it anywhere, so I cannot find any kind of patch to move up from there. I tried using patches parting from N960USQS1ARI5 to ARJ2 and ARJ7 to no avail. I already tried to factory reset the device, but it stays on the current N960USQU1ARI9. Any help you could offer?

    I will try look over the sd card updates , see what's available but Odin is so much easier, if you watch a few you tube video on your version all it takes is download Odin , the file and extract it and load them in 4 slots and done ...

    I'd really appreciate that, what I'm doubting about Odin is the fact that I don't know if it would mess with the security capabilities of Knox or stuff like that. What really bugs me is the fact that this so called N960USQU1ARI9 patch is nowhere to be found, any mention at all, as if it didn't exist. For reference, this is the thread I got the firmware.science idea from: https://forums.androidcentral.com/sa...pdating-3.html

    Thank you in advance for any help!!!

    I'm already checking the Odin option, will it work with any previous firmware? as I mentioned before, the current firmware of the device is N960USQU1ARI9, and I still can't find any trace of it anywhere, info or whatsoever. Will I kill my phone if I try to use Odin like that?

    Yes I have used Odin before. Also to B.Diddy, I've tried Kies and Smart Switch and still nothing. Phone has never been rooted.

    Why are you worried about knox? What is Knox and what does that have to do with getting updates?

    Update: I ditched the previous link, I'm going all in with the links provided by Ruben around here, right now I'm downloading

    "If you Odin to latest Android Pie 1CSD1 April patch
    This one https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid...89523397944212

    And also need this Odin3_v3.13.1_3B_PatcheD https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid...45805528067949 and only add BL, AP, CP, CSC , put HOME_CSC in slot CSC not CSC.TAR it will update your phone with no data wipe will just upgrade to latest Android Pie."

    Found on this thread: https://forums.androidcentral.com/sa...are-how-2.html

    Any advice from here?

    It's my first time flashing and I'm kind of terrified, in any case I'd like to say thank you for the support you offer around here, ATT and Samsung could definitely learn a thing or two from you!!!!

    I did it!!!!! Now the device is running on April 1st patch, should I stretch it to the latest one? Almost everything seems to be working OK so far, except for the fact that now I can't sign up to one of the WiFi networks of my home, it just keeps repeating the password is wrong, I already reset the network settings, turn on plane mode, type in manually the IP address and nothing, I'm about to go try the WPS, if that doesn't work I guess I'll be in trouble haha. Other than that... Thank you again for the help!!!!

    Yes, I am and got the WiFi situation solved, there is still no automatic update. The device is running on baseband N960USQS1CSD1, security patch level from April 1, 2019. Would you advice to go for the latest update?

    This link works

    I don't know what that MD5 thing means though, also would it wipe the data again?

    Thank you so much again man!
