software update today


software update today

I got a notification for a software update on my note 9 today, I kept dismissing it but finally accepted the update, when finished it said it changed the properties of my sim card and now I have apps missingqnd I dont like it, it's cartoonish, like for a kids phone or something, can I remove that most recent update? If so, how?? I liked my nphone like it was!!! Also, I'm wondering if it was a fake update and maybe I just got hacked.....anyone???

Re: software update today

@Buzzard88 Yeah, you only get 3 "dismissals", and then it's a "forced update", which really you want anyway, for security reasons.

Some of your apps (the ones that disappeared) were probably not 9.0/Pie compatible.


You can still customize the screen, back to how it was, in terms of layout.

If you want to get closer to where you were, you'll have to use another launch(er), which is beyond the scope of the forums, here.
