Galaxy S9 receiving update with April 2019 security patch

Samsung has started picking up the pace with the April 2019 security patch rollout. As expected these days, the company’s flagship devices are getting the latest security maintenance release first. Following updates for the Galaxy Note 8 and Note 9, Samsung is now rolling out the monthly update for the Galaxy S9. The update bumps the software version to G965FXXS3CSD1 in Germany and weighs 110.14MB over the air.

The new update doesn’t bring anything except security enhancements. As detailed by Samsung earlier this month, the April 2019 security patch fixes five critical and dozens of high-risk Android OS vulnerabilities. It also patches 15 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items.

To update your Galaxy S9 or S9+ to the latest software, open the Settings app, go to Software Update, and tap on Download and install. Do note that updates are released in stages and may take some time before they reach every Galaxy S9 unit across the globe. You should get a notification when the update is available for you.

the last update for S9 germany did delete Oem unlock from developer Options. Do not update if you need root. it is too late for me.
update: after factory reset it came back.

S3CSD1, the end part of PDA, all the previous ones this part started with U2, I am not sure what that means but I read somewhere that as long as U2 matches with Oreo, one will be able to downgrade i.e. if current firmware is 9.0 with U2 then need to go back to 8.0 with U2 as well.

So…

(1) Does this mean that we won’t be able to go back to 8.0 using Odin after this update is installed?
(2) Does this mean the Baseband/Modem version will change too and hopefully it fixes the bad battery issue?
