  1. I have an issue with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Firstly three days back the network went off but after restarting a couple of times, keeping it switched off for 5 mins and again restarting … it came back 40 – 45 mins later. And the day before yesterday, the network again went off. Even after restarting and waiting for hours, it did not solve. So I tried a couple of things and then finally Factory Reset the phone. Now when I checked and tried to update, it says Processing Failed. And on the
    IMEI Slot section in About phone, it is showing as “Unknown.” When I try to check the IMEI by *#06#, a black screen appears, and it hangs and shows an error The phone isn’t responding. I am not getting any signal also whereas the sim is working on other phone. When I try to open the Sim Card Manager, a black screen appears, and it hangs, the same issue as in checking the IMEI by *#06#. The airplane mode does not entirely get activated as when I click it, it just stays in the middle and does not go dark blue. Kindly advise what should be done?? What can the issue be?? Right now, the baseband version is showing “blank,,” and the IMEI slot one and slot two is showing “unknown.”
    I have never rooted my device and have never fidgeted with anything inside it. Kindly guide.

    • When you have rooted mobile, you should be careful when installing third-party apps. I think some apps script interfere with the System files. You can find your mobile model number in the back of the phone or the retail box. Flash the Near region firmware. Everything will become normal.

  2. Kindly help me I purchased note 8 and found it rooted with ROM build sm-N950N at this time dual sim working correctly, I tried to install firmware sm-N950F by Odin as per phone backside have model 950FD. Still, unfortunately, device stuck in Chinese or Korean boot after that I flashed “KTC” firmware n950n working great but only one sim other sim disabled by software, please help me.

    • Flash your default Model Number, which is mentioned on the backside of your device. It means you have to flash International version of SM-N950FD.
