    During the night my phone was updating and has since gone to the Downloading screen. I've tried a number of reboot methods but none are working.

    At the top left it says

    *** mode (avb fail)
    recovery: hash of data does not match digest in descriptor (2nd) (3)
    calculated hash of (recovery)b0e6c45049 (vemeth) 87c43dda56
    custom recovery
    vbmeta 6970FXXU9EUA4 376F3734R

    And then below that the Downloading Do not turn off target screen.

    What can i do to fix this problem please?

    TIA

    Welcome to Android Central! What happens if you press and hold Power and Vol Down for about 15 seconds to force a shutdown, and then power on again normally?

    Hi. It now restarts with the message "An error has occured while updating the software. Use the Emergency recovery function in Smart Switch PC software"

    It doesn't do anything else now.

    Then it sounds like the firmware is corrupt. Try Smart Switch. Unfortunately, any data on the phone that wasn't backed up or synced is probably lost.

    Hi, so i've flashed it through odin and the problem has remained the same. The firmware download was the correct one.

    I've also factory reset and restored it. Now it's been restored Google play doesn't work. No downloading or updating.

    All of this has been since a software download on Sunday.

    Any thoughts? Thanks

    Hi, can you explain the process you did in flashing through odin , did you put the firmware in the 4 corresponding slots in Odin? Where did you get the firmware?

    So i got the firmware through sammobile. If found the right firmware for my model number of phone and country and carrier. I filled all 4, though for the 4th i used the home one which keeps my data. The problem was still there so i backed it up and factory reset it.

    Try flash again without using home csc , use the regular csc so it can automatically factory reset

    UK has couple different csc codes so use the correct one in frija should usually be 3 letters like BTU

    It's just recovering from the back up now. Am i right in thinking that this has reinstalled firmware with Android 10 instead of 11 now?

    So everything seems ok now. Thank you very much for your help.

    Do i need to avoid updating to Android 11 now?

    Thank you.

    It may be the A11. Was it the A11 update that corrupted it for you? I am running A11 on a S10+ on 3 in UK. No issues running it for me. It may have just been a dodgy update.
