Samsung’s April 2024 update bricking Galaxy Z Fold 3

Samsung’s April 2024 update is reportedly bricking Galaxy Z Fold 3. A user reported on the Korean version of Samsung’s community that this smartphone was stuck in recovery mode after triggering the installation of the F926NKSU2HXD2 firmware.

The problem seems limited as I haven’t found many reports regarding the same. At the same time, the comments section of the source post also lacks similar feedback from consumers. Still, I recommend you not to install the HXD2 firmware on your Galaxy.

Samsung has recently launched Samsung Wallet in its home ground. We’ve seen a heavy number of Samsung Pay users switching to Wallet for advanced payments and mobile ID features. Notably, the firmware update also brought Samsung Wallet Mobile ID integration for the Fold 3.

Apart from the Wallet upgrade, the firmware brings the April 2024 security patch. Samsung may have also released HXD2 to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in South Korea. The same firmware was started rolling out to the Galaxy Z Flip 4, however, there are no reports from consumers in the community.

While the smartphone is stuck in recovery mode, the only way left is to wipe the data. Wiping data will lead the user to lose access to all the personal data that was not backed up. Also, there will be a lot of hurdles after manually resetting the device such as logging in via the trusted device.
