    My phone was beginning to get worse over time and 1 week ago Sat. I finally broke down and did the dreaded factory reset and now she's back to normal. Everything is working smooth and battery is fine. Of course , results will vary

    Both the phone, and smart switch say my software is up to date (android 9). I've pretty much been a Nexus, and Pixel guy so i don't know anything about Odin. Is this anything like rooting?

    No nothing like rooting.

    Odin is a flash tool :
    You download the firmware and tool , extract their files and load into Odin to update to that firmware , shouldn't take more then 10 to 15 minutes after everthing download . Pretty straight forward

    I don't understand why the phone itself, and smart switch say that there is no upgrade, and yet samfirm says there is. I've never worked with Odin, and i don't feel comfortable working with it now. If the ota upgrade is supposed to come from Tmo, then i'll go there and let them try it. If they brick it, then i get a new phone. Sorry.

    Sure you can take it to tmobile wont do anything for you , Samsung will ask to go ubreakifix to flash or send it in to them . Just offer another suggestion instead if going around in hoops with Samsung and carrier . Also make sure not using VPN.

    I have another option, and I'm going with it. I'll keep android 9 until I get the ota for android 10. I don't want to chance bricking the phone. After all, it's a Samsung, not a Pixel.

    You wont brick your phone , your only flashing stock Samsung firmware , not rooting . Be same thing if send to Samsung what they would do or best buy, even ureakitifix. But cool and understand it's not for everyone .
