Samsung S22 Ultra - black flashing screens and UPDATE

To whomever it concerns:

 

When will the S22 Ultra get the March update????  This brand new $2000+ phone is useless with the flashing black screens, and the update schedule said March 8.

 

Any idea when we can expect to get this so the phone is able to be used?  Thanks!

If you are having issues such as flashing black screens, I would look into exchanging your device, getting it looked at, or at least trying a factory reset.

This is the first I have heard of that issue.

I have the S22U on the same software level as you, and have had zero issues.

Flashing black screen?? Not my 22 Ultra 🤷🏻
And yeah, schedule still says March 8. Today is the 16th

Thanks.  I saw several people online mention that it was happening, but fixed with the March update - whenever  that is supposed to come!

But yea, will be getting it checked.  It is happening when scrolling, it flashes black and then you have to go back through the lock screen.   I saw online that it was happening to others.

It's now the 28th and still no update... BTW all our S22's are vulnerable to Dirty Pipe, a trivial root exploit that takes about 2 minutes to do. 100% root. 

 

It's been out for months, and Samsung still hasn't issued a patch. Really bad job Samsung.
