    So as long as I find the release firmware through USA networks, I should be fine?

    Moreover, how exactly do I download the ODIN files into the phone? Will it be self-explanatory the moment I open the files?

    I would start by going to the AT&T website to find the latest firmware.

    Now search Google for the firmware you want.

    The firmware file format will determine how it is installed.
    If it ends in .tar then the firmware can be installed with Odin.

    If in .zip it will be installed using a custom recovery such as TWRP.

    While I'm glad that I am not the only one with this problem, the long history without any concrete fix concerns me.

    I have tried flashing with the latest Telus FW from Sammobile using Odin 2.0.9, and even though it succeeded, the issue didn't go away.

    I have a N910W8 (Telus in Canada) and have been using wake lock (set at 4) as a band-aid solution for a couple of weeks now. Maybe someone already mentioned this before; I didn't read every single page of this thread.
    It essentially keeps the CPU awake while on standby so consumes a lot of battery. I used to get around 4 hours of screen on time before, now I get about 2.5 at best.

    Maybe I'll need to get a new phone or use my old S5.

    I have the same mmc read error as many here. I just found out through another forum that a workaround is to keep the phone's CPU awake by using the wakelock app. With it running, it prevents my Note 4 from rebooting itself several times a day. I don't know what the relation is, but it seems to work for many N4 owners at that forum. I just thought I'd offer the members an alternate 'solution' while they find a way to get rid of the problem, if it's possible.
    I'll be taking mine to a nearby Samsung authorized repair centre to see if they can fix it for a reasonable cost.

    If I were to try the DIY fix using ODIN, is the latest offical firmware all I need? Are there any other files I should try to flash?

    Thank you for that.
    Aren't phones strange beasts, and sometimes the solutions to problems can be even stranger.
    I think your solution fits into that category.

    To give any kind of useful help it is better to know something about your phone.
    The following app is one of the best and I think you will find useful.

    Can you install this app and post:
    Product Code
    Original CSC code
    Active CSC code
    PDA version
    CSC version
    Baseband version
    Android version
    Mobile operator

    I find it weird that the Original CSC code is blank.. shouldn't something be there?

    Original csc is blank if the firmware has not been changed.

    Your firmware is as stock, but how clean are your installs?

    Have you tried installing with SmartSwitch?
