Hello, I will be updating this as time goes on with step by step instructions on how to flash any USA carrier based cell phones to g935U firmware. I will also be providing a FAQ and trouble shooting section for people who wish to attempt this.
WARNING: Doing this voids all warranty on your device and carrier. Also, Republic Wireless cannot support rooted or modded phones. This means that if your phone needs support after following these steps, and it is determined the cause is software modification, Republic Wireless will not spend any support-team-hours trying to help. Basically this means you’re on your own. (and that is what this thread is meant for) Additionally, any misuse of Republic Wireless service is noted due to rooting or modding, Republic Wireless reserves the right to cancel or suspend your service. This doesn’t mean they’ll hunt you down and kick you off because you rooted your device. It just means if they see you abusing their service or any activity that threatens their network, they may suspend or cancel the account. (hopefully they’ll provide a warning encase you are unaware that your device is causing the issue and you can fix it before taking such action.)

Before I begin I want to first Iron out a few bugs I have in my system so I can make sure anyone who attempts to follow this has a seamless transition.
I just finished flashing my phone and everything went as smooth as could be. I logged in, updated everything, downloaded the republic wireless app, installed the SIM chip and it launched effortlessly. I then started running through everything to see what did or didn’t work. Then i stumbled upon it…I shut off my WiFi and there was no data connection. I looked into my settings and it appears that my APNs didn’t update when the Republic Wireless app launched. Would anyone be able to provide screenshots or detailed data of all their Republic Wireless APNs so I can manually add them? To get to them you need to go to settings > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names > _____.
All issues I ran into have been resolved. Over the next few days I will be writing up a step-by-step guide on the process I took to bring my phone to Republic Wireless. If anyone has any questions go ahead and ask them now and I will make sure i cover them in my walk-through.
