Re: S7 nougat 7.0 update

I expect it's mainly down to when Samsung decide to start the rollout

Re: S7 nougat 7.0 update

Will we all be getting it at the same time do you think or will we have to wait the different carriers to okay it first before its pushed through?

It's Virgin - usually about 6 months behind everybody else.

The security updates for Android 6 are months out of date.

Re: S7 nougat 7.0 update

They have never given a definitive answer to these sort of update posts in the past and I doubt if they will in the future.

The truth is the mods are as much in the dark as anyone else.

At the moment I can only find the firmware for the generic version an not the carrier variations

Re: S7 nougat 7.0 update

Great. Well I don't know why it's advertised as coming out this week for everyone if everyone doesn't actually get it at the same time.

And yeah Virgin also never replies. But what do you expect? :-/

Re: S7 nougat 7.0 update

Is it possible to ring up virgin and ask them to unlock the phone? then i/we could get the updates when they are released.

Re: S7 nougat 7.0 update

The generic version is here https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/

Unlocking won't help you will have to use Odin to reflash - that way all the warranty info stays intact
