Is this process gonna wipe out all my data? Please Advise. Thanks.
Yes. So a complete backup is recommended.
So, how if I don’t choose “F. Reset Time” in Odin? Is there any Impact to the device or Oreo version still installed but all my data remain still?
F.Reset Time has no connection with wiping your data. It just resets the flashing timer. Use any app from Google Play Store for taking backup.
