The info of this exact firmware is shown on this page. As written, G930FXXU2EREM is the PDA version, and G930FOJV2ERE8 is the CSC version. PDA represents the "core" OS build, while CSC - "Consumer Software Customisation" or "Country Specific Code" (didn't find an official explanation of the acronym) - represents the region-specific customizations. The two, ...

There is nothing abnormal in this case. They is only one device in the first preformatted text, which is /dev/block/mmcblk0 (just like /dev/sda in Linux distros). The rest are the partitions within that device (akin to /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2 and so on). There is no normal limit, not that I came across, for how many partitions a device can have. It depends ...

You might keep trying patterns if you think that after a number of wrong patterns you could get right one but android will setup a timer to wait if wrong pattern is drawn and each time timer to wait will increase. The next option would be a hard reset your device. Please keep in mind • Resetting your device will completely erase all user data on the ...

It may be an update to your device, but it sounds unusual because no device is allowed to update its firmware when the device battery is running below 30% anyhow, unless you clicked on Update Now button that time, and plugged it into charging. If it's an update, wait some time as you told your device is dead that means system has downloaded that file ...

The new Samsung Internet browser is based on the Chromium browser and thus supports its remote debugging interface. Enable USB debugging on your device as described here. Then connect your device via USB (Oh, surprise!). Visit chrome://inspect on your computers Google Chrome browser and you will be guided to create the connection: Then you just have to ...

The first part G930FXXU2EREM is the "serial" for this ROM. The second part G930FOJV2ERE8 is the "serial" for "previous" ROM (i.e. before an OTA update). TUR is a region code, this case it's Turkey. So you can think it's: {to}-{from}-{region}.zip

I was also looking for the same but literally there is no such option. However, what Samsung's Official site suggests to do it, is: If you would prefer to use another browser as default from the messaging app - you can try searching the Google Play Store to download another messaging application. The Android Messages app, for example, defaults to open ...

Solution by @beeshyams that worked in my case: On Odin in the options tab; Uncheck the Auto Reboot option. When Odin finishes the flashing procedure; use the suitable key combination to boot into TWRP Recovery Mode. From the TWRP menu; boot into system.

TBH the answer is 'Yes' he can use it after factory reset. As we know that it is needed for an android device to re-login from the same account as it was previously logged in before doing a factory reset or called it as owner's account, but one can still use other account to log in and set up a fresh android after resetting the device. However, Google ...

What you are looking for is something like DSDV i.e. Dual SIM Dual VoLTE. Unfortunately, your smartphone does not support it and it will not be possible for Samsung to push an OTA update to enable it. The chipset itself is not capable of connecting both SIM cards to 4G networks at the same time. One has to fall-back to 3G/2G.

It seems like a hardware issue (not directly related to storage), better try to get fixed. Unless the device boots at least to some bootloader stage (like fastboot or odin or edl) you can't access its memory. Or if the data is extremely important, contact some professional data recovery service which usually do one of the two: Access eMMC directly using ...

Sim unlock (being able to use different carriers) is not bootloader unlock or root. The SM-N910A cannot be rooted. You can root the T-Mobile version (SM-N910T). Your phone will update to Marshmallow baseband version N910AUCS2EQH1 when you check for updates with an AT&T sim card installed.

If you want to block communication with your mobile network provider there is a second option: You just have to make sure the MNO can not identify your devices. You can easily achieve that by removing the SIM card from your device. This does not work of course in case you have a phone with eSIM and you use the eSIM (as the eSIM can't be removed physically ...

So i achieved the desired via old good Linux. Steps: Use Mobaxterm, Cygwin or any other Linux-to-Windows framework that restructures Windows tree to a Linux one. Once the phone is connected and it's drive set to act as USB (i.e. a drive letter is assigned, say E:), it can be defined for $DIR variable for future usage. Then this part of Bash code can run ...

Those are called "links", very common in Linux operating systems. Chances are, your files are actually in neither of those directories. On my phone, the actual mountpoint of the partition those files are on is /storage/sdcard0. From there two links exist. One to /storage/emulated/legacy and one to /storage/emulated/0. The emulated in the filename also ...

For the Samsung email app (on my Galaxy Tab A anyway) you need the following ▪An exchange activesync account - for some reason s/mime is not enabled for any other email type ▪Your public and private keys for your exchange account as a PKCS#12 cert uploaded to your tablet already or in your download directory ( root/sdcard/Download directory ) ready for ...

Someone will probably want an answer so here are the steps I performed: I managed to get twrp running on it with odin. (I got odin from odindownload.com, gone to twrp.me/Devices), found my device, grabbed the .tar and started odin. I then clicked the 'AP' button and selected the .tar file. I connected the phone and pressed start. Booted into recovery by ...

• You sure that device doesn't have 2 different gmail accounts added. Might be the contacts backed up is in 'account 1' and you're looking for contacts in 'account 2'.

Q1: Oddly, this list doesn't seem to include the apps I really disabled in the Apps section: Briefing Google Play Movies & TV Why is that? Your output already listed the two apps. com.google.android.videos for Google Play Movies and flipboard.boxer.app for Briefing app. Optional: see my answer to know how to find an app's package ...

You did it wrong I guess. Despite all the tutorials you found online, I wonder how you missed the right one : There's a "safe" uninstall feature within Kingoroot app. This removes completely the app and the binaries from your device. Open the app Click three dots upper right, find settings menu. Click "Remove Root". Your device will be rebooted and root ...

The answer to your question is no. Without a Samsung Engineering firmware load that has adb and USB debugging enabled in the setup wizard this is not possible, and I have never seen one leaked out for any Snapdragon based S7, so the answer is simply no. Remember, FRP is DESIGNED not to be able to be bypassed or defeated, every time a exploit comes out, it ...

An OTG adapter should be included with the Galaxy S9. If you insert the male connector into your device's USB port, and a flash drive into the adapter's female connector, the drive should be automatically mounted. You may not get any clear indication that this happened, however if you check storage settings, it should be there. It should also be visible and ...

Rooting has become pretty straight forward since Magisk came out. This is one approach to root your device. All you need is a custom recovery and then just flash the Magisk systemless root .zip. First step would be installing the custom recovery TWRP. This device uses dm-verity! This means that swiping to allow system modifications will prevent you from ...

Open the Google Settings app on your device (called Google Settings or Settings, depending on your device). Scroll down and tap Google. Tap Ads. Turn on Opt out of interest-based ads or Opt out of Ads Personalization. Reset the ad id, or user id. This is the only thing I've been able to find on the subject. Like you, I run a background app while doing ...

I am currently using a Galaxy S10+, and I was using a Galaxy Note 8 before that. Both phones support rotating the homescreen to landscape in their native launcher, but it is disabled by default. I am going to assume your Galaxy S9 supports this as well. Try the following: Go to Settings > Display > Homescreen. Then look for a setting related to rotation. ...

AFAIK, it is the Samsung feature which keeps the display turned on for as long as you're looking at it. This is helpful if you're reading something off the display and don't want it to sleep. The setting/feature can be disabled in Display Settings of the phone.
