My S22 picked up this update yesterday (20/06) and I've downloaded it but not installed yet. Seeing mixed things from about a month ago when the update was removed. Assuming it's now back since it's popped up. Are people still having issues, or is it safe to install now?

I just posted a comment re the screen orientation. In order to switch to landscape mode I keep having to restart the phone. It'll respond to screen orientation for about a day but whenever I don't use it for a while it stops responding. I find this intensely annoying. I'd advise you to wait, I wish I hadn't updated.

I've installed all recent updates on my S22U. No issues what so ever.

Do a full back up of your phone first, install, then clear cache partition after too.

Like you said, mixed reviews have been posted so I suppose it comes down to if you want to do it or not.

 I just updated yesterday and my phone is now bricked.

- My eSIM is wipeout and can no longer be added back.

- Physical sim is not recognized anymore.

- The IMEI number on my phone is now gone together with the eSIM IMEI.

- It also reboots itself randomly.

- Can't no longer connect to my PC. It's just constantly disconnected.

- It runs very very hot without doing any thing. Battery as a result drains very quick from 80% to 20% in less than an hour.

- Many apps can no longer be open with the error message "com.android.phone keeps stopping".

I am seeing more people complaining about bricking Galaxy s22, is there a way to cancel One UI 6.1 update. Files are already downloaded and I am afraid it will automatically start installing and brick my phone. I do not know is anything that can stop this, delete those downloaded update files?
