I've checked with store, they said force update is not recommended, but there's an update.. is it cause the phone is refurbished so the phone can't find the update? any help will be appreciated.
so, I got a samsung note 10 plus sm-n975u and the software update isn't working.. maybe I can try downloading firmware and use odin to install?
Maggi, 02 Aug 2022It was Android 12 4.1.1. But in about phone it still shows 4.1. But it 4.1.1.what about last security patch update you got? and how's working after update to latest security patch
TigerT, 01 Aug 2022what's ur last update after 12 and after 4.1 update? It was Android 12 4.1.1. But in about phone it still shows 4.1. But it 4.1.1.

Like you said keep an eye on how your phone performs. As wth updates it needs a couple of days to settle down and learns how you use your phone.
TigerT, 31 Jul 2022i know but I'm afraid if my device getting lags after update or any battery life issue I already updated to Android 12 yesterday. Battery life increased and it's working smoothly and properly. I had no problems but still i'm gonna monitor it on a long run.

No what I mean is i wiped the cache partition after the july update. All updates came out when I started to update to android 12. First was january 2022, i was about to wipe the cache partition but then the june 2022 came out then the july 2022. So my phone restarted 3 times after all updates, i wiped the cache partition like its all in one instead of wiping it every after update.

It improved battery life and the phone is running smoothly but still i'm gonna check it after a long run if it still stays the same or don't have any problems. First update was january 2022 then june 2022 then lastly was july 2022. I wiped cache partition after the july update. Is it okay? I can't wipe partition every update since the phone is forcing you to update to the latest software.

TigerT, 31 Jul 2022i know but I'm afraid if my device getting lags after update or any battery life issue Sorry. Think you posted to me by mistake. But il say If you don't update then you will get problems with your phone. Apps are updated to latest software. The security update I received for July was just for security. I'm sure there are small fixes in it . But your better updating to latest software. There are reasons why updates are pushed to the phones.
