Hi, I am attempting to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy S9 bought on the /e/ store to Android Q since it came with 8.1.0. To do so, I am first installing the “official” samsung Q firmware (downloaded from Samfrew). However, when flashing, Heimdall always gets stuck at odm.img . Has anyone encountered this problem? Any recommendation on what I could do? This has rendered my phone unusable (it goes into download mode fine so it’s not bricked but it cannot start properly).
She helped me and has helped many other people as well with these kind of issues- you will see her handiwork throughout the Samsung forum threads!
Hopefully she will be around soon. Good luck!
Hi ! Thanks for following up
Yes I’ve seen her excellent thread on the topic which I’ve used as a baseline. Unfortunately it did not go as planned for me… Hopefully I can find a fix soon so I can use my device and /e/ again !
If this is useful for anyone, the /e/ easy installer managed to recover my device and cleanly install the OS. Quite impressive I must say. Alas I am back to 8.1.0, I think I’ll wait for the OTA update for Q.
Well, I’ve installed Q on my S9, and it does not bring a lot more usability at this stage.
And it is a bit buggy here and there.
Just stick with 8.1 is basicly a good idea for now.
Although I hope that Q is stable soon.
