I used odin for my old s4 but i want not to use it with s8 because I have fear to loose rhe warranty. Firmwareversion is G950USQS6DSH2 Provider software version: XAA/XAA/XAA

    Thank you for your help in advance

    Hi there

    Only way to keep your device up-to-date is flashing yourself...

    Download latest SmartSwitch for PC (NOT to be used, only for the drivers): [ Login above or register to see download links. ]
    Download latest Odin: [ Login above or register to see download links. ]
    Download latest firmware: [ Login above or register to see download links. ]

    Flash AP BL CP & HOME_CSC_OYN (other files in archive NOT to be used) with Odin 3.14.x -> your data will stay intact.

    How to flash firmware to your phone:



    1. Extract (un-rar) the firmware file (i.e. to folder c:\Odin) ***
    2. Download [ Login above or register to see download links. ]
    3. Extract Odin ZIP file (i.e. to folder c:\Odin)
    4. Open Odin v3.14.1
    5. Power OFF your S8
    6. Reboot Phone in Download Mode: Hold down Bixby-VolDOWN-Power simultaneously
    7. Wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
    8. Add the firmware files to their designated slots (AP in AP, BL in BL, CP in CP, HOME_CSC_OYN in CSC) (Other files in archive NOT to be used!)
    9. Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
    10. Click the start button, sit back and wait few minutes

    Hi henklbr,
    thank you for your quick response! Will I loose the warranty of the phone and will it get rooted by this procedure?

    The latest firmware would be
    PDA G950USQS7DTB3
    CSC G950UOYN7DTB3
    is it right?
