    I'm no longer in a rush for this update. Let them work out the bugs first.

    I'm never in rush for OS updates for this reason. I wish I could refuse the updates

    A phone-bricking bug (as reported in forums per the article) getting by QA is especially concerning.

    Well, this is unfortunate.

    I guess it's back to Release waiting vs. Update waiting.

    You can.

    I've used Alliance Shield for years with no issues, (for those who may be leery of such apps), from the Playstore.

    With it you can disable EVERYTHING, including the process that automatically checks for updates, and applies them.

    Ain't no way, no how I let updates, inadequately tested updates mind you, get pushed to my phone without my permission.

    Plus, regardless of bugs, new updates NEVER work smoothly with GoodLock, (which I use extensively), until GoodLock has been updated, which can take months to do.

    Go into the App Manager tab on the home screen, search for update, disable these two processes.

    One UI 4 / Android 12 final serious issues-screenshot_20211208-113832_alliance-shield-x.jpg

    Then click on them, one at a time, and on the next screen click the Allow button to disable it.

    Ditto man. I cannot have the only phone I use bricked.

    Besides, I use my phone for work as my Laptop when I am out and about (which is often). I would hate to go back to the days of lugging around a laptop again (yeah, even though it has been a few months, I would rather take around my KB/Power Bank/Phone than a laptop with everything else.

    Interesting, that's a new feature... I just updated the app, and regarding your previous post, that's probably why you can no longer just disable the other 3 processes individually.

    So do you have the same thing now? Do you think that's all that needs to be done, turn that on?

    I've never owned a Samsung smartphone until recently, just played with a couple here and there over the years. After reading this stuff, I might hold out on setting my new Z Flip 3 up until after they get this update mess straightened out (which has been going on with the Android 12 update for too long now). I'd rather not use it than have an update nightmare, or even worse a brand new bricked phone. I've personally never had a bad os update on any phone I've ever had. And that covers low end to mid range to flagships.

    Samsung always seems to struggle with updates in every area... with the premium price and brand recognition they have, I wonder how many resources they're actually investing in making their update situation work like it should? They really need to make it a priority if they're going to present themselves as the best phones money can buy. Amazing hardware isn't much good if it gets the same quality and quantity of software update support as phones half the price.

    I think a huge problem for Samsung is they have WAY too many phone models they're trying to support... either support the phones you make properly, or make less phones so you can focus on supporting the phones you do make properly.

    Shoving as many different phone models as you can out the door to make more money, while supporting them like crap, will become counterproductive when you develop a reputation for extremely buggy, slow, and minimal updates... especially to your flagships

    I know they've tried to improve their update situation, but they still have a long way to go to match the prices they ask for their phones in general, and their premium phones in particular.

    When people are scrambling to protect their $1000+ phones from phone breaking bad updates, and updates this late in the game are getting pulled, it's not a good look for the company.. and sure doesn't build confidence in the customers

    @J Dubbs I think you are over reacting and over exaggerating this issue. Samsung does not struggle on their updates in all areas as you claim, and with all the devices I have had over the years, I personally have never had any issues. The only region that even has the update is s. Korea and they halted the rollout until issues are ironed out. All manufacturers have had issues at one time or another with updates, it happens even with Apple. The one that comes to my mind is IOS 8, in which they had to pull it because of issues.

    People can do what they think best for them, however I don't think blocking the update I warranted at this point considering the rollout will need to resume in Korea before it goes to other regions.
