    I keep trying to UPDATE my Sam Gal S9 with a security patch from Nov 2019 but it shuts off and stays off instead of rebooting then says Firmware update failed when I get it back up. Samsung..no help...Best Buy...no help...Verizon...No help. Google and YouTube...no help. Was told needed to be on a strong direct wifi ( as I am using an Xfinity hotspot), even though I've never had a problem with my previous devices. Didn't help when I was directly connected to a residential wifi. Tried to do it through Smart Switch..no go. Tried to do a sideload from the update that I downloaded from Samsung...no go. The only thing I haven't tried is a Factory Reset. Is this a thing someone can help with? I'm not worried about this patch but if I'm going to have this issue with a major update Ima be upset. Thanx in advance.

    Welcome to Android Central! Try also wiping the cache partition before attempting the update again: https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...sung-galaxy-s9

    I did try it connected to a friends wifi. Same.

    Xfinity highest speed they got and no it didn't time out

    Tried this. When going to reboot after wiping the partition it goes off and stays off. Now I have another problem as it reboots to the reboot screen. Good times. I hate this phone.

    It sounds like the firmware is corrupt. You'd have to reflash it, as mustang7757 suggested. Alternatively, see if there's a Samsung service center or a Best Buy nearby that can reflash it for you.

    Just cause he went to his friends house.

    Don't tell me how fast the internet connection was.

    Google has a set time to do a download..
    If you exceed the time, it kicks you out.

    What? Idk what you are saying but that makes no sense. If it is downloading it downloads.. there isn't a "must have (X) Mbps" speed or it doesn't download. All they usually care about is WiFi VS. Cellular....

    The OP is referring to firmware update, not problems with Google

    Forgive me.
    I've never tried a firmware update..
    I took my phone to verizon..
    They backed up everything on their computer.
    Did it for me.
    Reinstalled everything back on my computer..
    I did this at a corporate store

    Sounds like your internet was just flaky and gave out. There isn't a minimum speed requirement.
