Install Android Nougat Firmware on AT&T Galaxy S7/S7 Edge (SM-G930A/G935A)

291

We have done at least two tutorials describing ways to update the AT&T Galaxy S7/S7 Edge to Android Nougat. While the first update guide was about installing the Nougat Beta on the phones, the other was a detailed tutorial on updating the AT&T S7 Edge by flashing the QA6 Nougat OTA via stock recovery. Since the official firmware for the device is already out, here’s another guide detailing the steps to install the Android Nougat firmware on AT&T Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) and S7 Edge (SM-G935A).

If you own the AT&T Galaxy S7/S7 Edge and have been able to receive the official Nougat OTA for some reason, you can download the stock Android 7.0 Nougat firmware from below and install it manually using Odin.

New Features in Android Nougat Update for AT&T Galaxy S7/S7 Edge

If you are curious about what is inside the box before opening it, let me list a few new things that you’ll be able to enjoy after installing the Nougat firmware on your AT&T Galaxy S7:

Android Nougat is an enormous update because it comes with a lot of new features, changes, performance improvements, bug fixes and many UI-related tweaks. In case curious about what is new in this update, you must take a look at some of the major points we’ve highlighted below.

  • The user interface has been revamped throughout.
  • Performance is much faster now.
  • Entirely new quick settings panel.
  • New features in the phone and contacts apps.
  • Enjoy better battery life. New battery management feature for better battery performance. Customizable presets for Medium power and Maximum power saving modes. The App Power Monitor detects inactive apps consuming the battery, and puts them to sleep, extending your battery charge.
  • Nougat’s split-screen feature lets you use two apps side by side.
  • New effects and filters in the camera app. You can view the filters by swiping the screen from right to left when the camera app is open.
  • Browse the web more securely and login websites using your fingerprint using the new Samsung Internet and Samsung Pass apps. You need not remember multiple login credentials for various sites as Samsung Pass securely stores your login details.
  • Using the Performance Mode, you can now enjoy a better performance by choosing from Optimized, Game, Entertainment, and High-performance modes to optimize battery consumption and improve device performance.
  • The new keyboard is configured updates language data automatically and provide better predictions.
  • You can now choose between QHD and full HD display resolution.

Download Android 7.0 Nougat Firmware on AT&T Galaxy S7/S7 Edge

Galaxy S7 SM-G930A:

UPDATE: The latest G930AUCS4BQE1 (Nougat) firmware is now available for the AT&T Galaxy S7 (SM-G930). It’s a multi-file firmware and you can download it below:

(Having downloaded the 4 files, don’t forget to replace the “.rar” extension of the files with “.md5”.)

Galaxy S7 Edge SM-G935A:

UPDATE: The latest G935AUCU4BQF3 (Nougat) firmware is now available for the AT&T Galaxy S7 Edge (SM-G935). It’s a multi-file firmware and you can download it below:

Having downloaded the file, extract the zip. You will find 4 files with .zip extension inside the extracted folder. You need to unzip them too to find the actual firmware files with .tar.md5 extension.

Install Android 7.0 Nougat Firmware on AT&T Galaxy S7/S7 Edge

Now here are the Android Nougat firmware installation instructions.

  1. Download Odin3_v3.12.3.zip and unzip it.
  2. Download and install Samsung USB Drivers on your computer if you don’t have installed them already.
  3. Go to Settings> Developer options on your S7 and enable USB debugging.
  4. Backup your apps and data as a precaution. As the new firmware might wipe/rest your phone.
  5. Unzip the firmware zip file you downloaded from above. You will get 4 files (with .tar.md5 extension) inside the extracted folder.                   AP_G935AUCU4BQA6_G935AATT4BQA6 _user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    BL_G935AUCU4BQA6_G935AATT4BQA6_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    CP_G935AUCU4BQA6_G935AATT4BQA6_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    CSC_G935AUCU4BQA6_G935AATT4BQA6_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
  6. Boot your Galaxy S7 into the Download or Odin mode. To do so, turn off your phone and press and hold the Volume Down + Home + Power keys at the same time for 2-3 seconds to boot your phone into the Download mode. Release the keys as soon as you see a blue screen with exclamation sign and press the Volume Up key.
  7. When your phone gets into the Download mode, open the Odin folder double-click the .exe file to launch it.
  8. Connect your phone to your computer using the USB cable that came with your phone.
  9. When your phone is detected by Odin, the ID:COM port will be highlighted (see below).
  10. Now click the BL button in Odin, navigate to the firmware folder and add the file that starts with BL in its name.
  11. Then click the AP button and add the corresponding file to it. Since the AP file is huge in size.
  12. Now click the CP add the CP file to it.
  13. Finally, click the CSC button and add the CSC file to it.
  14. Having added all files, make sure your Odin’s screen looks like as shown below.
  15. Finally, click the Start button to initiate the installation and wait until the installation completes.
  16. When the firmware is installed, you will get PASS! message in Odin and your phone will reboot automatically.
  17. You can now disconnect the USB cable. Since the first boot takes about 5-8 minutes, you need to wait patiently.

Wait until your AT&T Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge boots up. Done! Enjoy the newly installed Nougat firmware.

  • Hi,

    Installing the firmware will not changed the “unlocked” status of your phone.

  • ZakaRia OuH

    If i’m outside the Us and my phone was carrier unlocked and followed this procedure, might it become carrier unlocked again ?
    Or even a factory reset doesn’t affect The EFS partition which contains Carrier related things?
    Thank you in advance.
    Waiting for your answer.

  • Perform a factory reset!

  • John Figueroa✖️

    Thanks, it works fine but, when I turned it on it was in safe mode, and I’ve restarted it several times and it stays the same, I need help

  • Jayaprakash E

    Thanks Rakesh!!! Your instructions and firmware helped me to flash my mobile to G930AUCS4BQE1 (Nougat). It was easy and no troubles.

  • Well, that’s not an issue. What will do with a smartphone without data connection? Anyway, if you want to remove that, try playing with notification settings.

    Go to Settings> Notifications> Settings and turn off notifications. It should work.

  • Greg Busby
  • R.J. Baker Distillery

    Thanks for the prompt followup. I was able to find a working set else where. Outside of that your instructions were most helpful and made completing the flash process very easy. Good Work.

  • Please show me the Odin screenshot.

  • R.J. Baker Distillery

    i am getting a “Binary is invalid” error

  • No, iit won’t lock your phone. Go ahead.

  • Maham

    After I clicked ‘Start” on Odin, its been 20 minutes and the process has not begun. No ‘System’ heading nor the green bar is showing. Is that normal?

  • Alcatraz064

  • Hyoungil Lee

    Hi Rakesh. I cannot use data on my Galaxy S4 SHV-E300K. It is always 2G (I can call or text, but cannot use 4G LTE or 3G at all). Would you help me to resolve that? The provider is METRO PCS. Help me please. 🙁 🙁

  • If you are out of US territory, you can update your phone manually only. Just download the QA6 firmware from above and install it using Odin.

  • Azaan James

    if i use proxy or vpn then ???

  • Umair Shafi

    If you’re out of At&t region (US), then still you cannot receive updates directly OTA on your phone.

  • Azaan James

    Hi Rakesh I have S7 edge SM-G935A with Android 6.0.1 with baseband version G935AUCS4APK1 with november 1, 2016 security patch. MY QUESTION is after following your all steps are you sure in future i will recive auto updates and security patchs?

  • Jidonskii

    I didn’t install anything, it came pre-installed with the phone. Am not interested in the G935A version, just want to know if it’s possible to switch to the G935F version.

  • Hi Umair, you can install the QF3 firmware directly.

  • Installing the firmware will not affect the SIM-unlocked status.

  • No. You can install it directly.

  • MAYANK KUMAR MEHRA

    Should i need to install G935AUCU4BQA6 before installing G935AUCU4BQF3, or can i install directly. Presently I’m on G935AUCS4APK1.

  • MAYANK KUMAR MEHRA

    Should i need to install G935AUCU4BQA6 before G935AUCU4BQF3.. my phone is At&T unlocked, now I’m in india & using it with indian sim card. Presently I’m on G935AUCS4APK1 .. tell me which firmware should i install & will it affect my phone’s unlocked status.

  • MAYANK KUMAR MEHRA

    Did you installed G935AUCU4BQF3 OR G935AUCU4BQA6 firmware, if yes then how did you installed it. Plz explain

  • Umair Shafi

    Hi Rakesh, How are you? Please guide me as I’m already on G935AUCS4APK1 baseband version (SM-G935A), will I have to flash (G935AUCU4BQA6_Recovery) before the (G935AUCU4BQF3) or I can directly flash 4BQF3 latest firmware for Nougat 7.0? Kindly assist me to get my phone updated.

  • Umair Shafi

    I also have a same question, having a same baseband version. Kindly reply asap.

  • MAYANK KUMAR MEHRA

    I have S7 edge SM-G935A with Android 6.0.1 with baseband version G935AUCS4APK1 with november 1, 2016 security patch. I moved to india permanently. Which firmware should i use to flash via Odin3. & how this works. Will it effect on my phones unlock status.

  • Jidonskii

    Hello, i have a S7 Edge G935A phone. I can’t receive or make calls with my sim because of a call forwarding issue that has to do with the AT&T firmware. So i want to change to a G935F firmware, could that be possible?

  • ΆσωτοςVirus

    I tried it multiple times,but it did not work.
    Can i downgrade to G935AUCS2APH1?
    Will this downgrade work for my network problems?
    Or should i install the U version?

  • Thank you! 🙂

  • Luis Felipe Avila Morales

    I did it and everything it’s working ok, thanks.

  • Re-install the firmware.

  • QF3 is the latest. Try that.

  • Hi Augusto, which file did you use G935AUCU4BQA6_recovery.zip or G935AUCU4BQF3.zip ?

  • ΆσωτοςVirus

    4 zips after extracting and 4 files after extracting those too.
    I shouldn’t have installed csc maybe?

  • How many files did you find after extracting G935AUCU4BQF3.zip?

  • ΆσωτοςVirus

    I tried it,it did not work.
    Also i have a notification next to battery,a circle with a diagonal line in it (like a no parking) sign.
    In settings-mobile networks-network operators-default setup,
    Automatic says “Unable to connect – Try again later”
    Manual says “Error while searching for networks.”

  • ΆσωτοςVirus

    Hi Rakesh.
    Please respond,I have a S7 edge g935a.I installed G935AUCU4BQF3 and now i do not have network coverage.I am in Greece.What can i do?

  • Hi, yes you can install it using our instructions.

  • Luis Felipe Avila Morales

    Hello, I am from Peru and I got an S7 edge at&t (G935AUCS2APF2) Can I install directly the firmware G935AUCU4BQF3 with this guide? or what should I do first?

  • Thanks for the appreciation and following the guide carefully. Please follow us for more updates and useful stuff. 🙂

  • augusto sampaolo

    then, I just installed the firmware and I had no problem. I followed the step-by-step procedure, among other things, very simple and exhaustive ….
    thank you for giving me all the information and for making this a welcome gift …
    it was a while I was trying to update my mobile phone to android 7 and thanks to you I finally managed to get NOUGAT …
    Thanks thanks thanks

  • You do not need root because it’s the official firmware. Just follow the guide.

  • augusto sampaolo

    last question before updating:
    does the cellphone have to be root or is it OK even in its original configuration?

  • Just download the file, extract it and follow the instructions.

  • augusto sampaolo

    a curiosity …. the file “QA6_recovery.zip what do you need ???

  • augusto sampaolo

    no one … I’m wrong in making the copy and paste before you write the message

  • Hi Augusto,

    Installing the stock firmware will not affect the Sim-Unlock status of your phone. Download G935AUCU4BQF3.zip and install it.

    By the way, who is Venkat?

  • Finally! 🙂

    Glad to know!

  • ΆσωτοςVirus

  • Cold Crush

  • Can you show your Odin screen?

  • Cold Crush

    Hi i hv followed all the steps but at last i hv got fail message insted of pass, what sud i do?

  • No, flashing the stock firmware will not remove that. If you want to install a stock Android ROM, you will have to root your device and install a custom recovery.

    http://www.droidviews.com/root-galaxy-s7-s7edge-snapdragon-variant-on-android-nougat/

    In my knowledge, a custom recovery is not yet available for your phone because there is no way to unlock the bootloader.

  • Kawasaki Racing

    Hi Rakesh,

    when you flash the SM-G930A does it remove the overlay and the AT & T mobile logo boot? I am looking for a verson ROM STOCK from android to remove AT & T overlay. Thank you

  • Fede Fuster

    I used to have the same problem, always the same error “md5 error, binary invalid”. The solution is when you open the file G935AUCU4BQF3.zip you will find 4 files inside that are .zip too, you have to open again each file and extract again that files. Finally you will get 4 files with .tar.md5 extension. Hope to help you

  • You don’t need to move files to anywhere. Just install them as directed.

  • Definitely, yes.

  • Yes, you can.

  • Pratik Gautam

    Hi Venkat,

    I have the same problem as you have – I bought my Galaxy G7 Edge from US with ATT carrier. Now in India, I am unable to use VOLTE and instead have to work-around with JioVoice App which isn’t great.

    My phone’s model no. is G935A and it had Marshmallow (G935AUCS4APK1) which I upgraded into Nougat (G935AUCS4BQC2).

    If you are able to find a resolution to this problem then please share, it would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can use this tutorial to update your phone. Since I haven’t tried Jio on my S7, I can’t say with any surity but you should be able to enjoy VoLTE even after updating the software.

  • Hi Ahsan, sorry for the late reply. Yes, you can upgrade your phone to Nougat.

  • Hi Ali, you can still flash the firmware using our tutorial. It will not affect the SIM-lock status of your S7.

    Thank you again, I found that after I posted the question. I was able to root it, but a bad zip file has caused the IMS service has stopped responding message to pop up every second. I am trying to unroot it in order to start over, but I can’t get the message to stop, nor can I get Odin to not fail or dismatch when trying to put the OEM build back on. This is frustrating, and almost makes one want to go back to iOS (gasp!). Thank you again for the help.

  • Hi Nikhil,

    Yes, you can proceed. 🙂

  • Nikhil “Packaging” Patel

    Hello Rakesh,
    Thank you for the information here. I have the BaseBand Version G935AUCU2APG1 installed on my SM-G935A. Is it okay to use you method to update to Nougat 7.0?

    Waiting for your reply!
    -Nikhil

  • John Hale

    Mr. Rakesh,
    A million thanks for the ONLY information that helped me to restore my phone after a failed rooting attempt. My phone was stuck in a boot loop and this guide helped me to restore the phone back to the original setting. Is it possible to root the phone so I can remove the att bloatware? If so, how? I cannot find any reliable information on how to accomplish this. The only guides I have found have almost bricked my phone. Any help is appreciated. Again, great work.

  • Budi Hartono

    THANKS BRO, IT WORK!

  • Budi Hartono

    i have SM-G390A (AT&T) G930AUCS4API2 instaled in my phone, can i use this tutorial to update my andoid to nougat?
    please answer

  • Ostin Paiz

    sufian mirza Could you upgrade your g935a to nougat? I have a s7 edge g935a unlocked also and could not update it

  • Ostin Paiz

    is no possible because G935f is a exynos and G935a is a snapdragon, if you try it, you could have problems with your device

  • Ostin Paiz

    I have a problem with the files, when I unzip the firmware the 4 files appear but they appear to me in Winrar type

  • Andre A. Hooke

    Hello, does this slow down the phone’s performance?

  • Not tested personally but you can try.

  • Giselle Vasquez

    Can i change this firmware to the SM-935U nougat firmware? I want to flash this firmware basically because the SM-935A has the at&t bloatware, which i hate it

  • Brian Nahuel

    THANK YOU SO MUCH

  • Can you show me the pic of the download mode on your device. You might have not properly booted it into the download mode.

  • Don’t use the PIT. Just flash the BL, AP, CP and CSC.

  • Brian Nahuel

    HI, WHERE I HAVE TO PUT THIS FILE HEROQLTE_USA_ATT.PIT

  • K-oz ElPrototipo

    Hello Mr, Rakesh, I have the S7 active but do not have At&t so im not getting any software updates im running on 6.0.1 G891AUCS1APH1 is there a way i can get my phone updated to the latest version without rooting? ( I have 3 apps that are crucial to me and are root locked, so if i root they stop working) Thanks in advance

  • Marcelo Lestido

    My phone is on download mode but odin aint reading it. any solutions??

  • ܀Cilifi܀

    Thank you! This worked perfectly for my G930A!

  • Ryan Maulana

    I already flash this february patch, Did you have may update patch G935AUCS4BQE1 or the lastest update for the sm g930a … i live in Indonesia… so I can’t get the OTA update

  • Yes, you can.

  • Mostafa Blassy

    my firmware is G935AUCU4APJ4. Can I use the software you uploaded above to update to Nougat.?. without any problems<>>??? as the software firmware is G935AUCU4BQA6

  • Mostafa Blassy

    my firmware is G935AUCU4APJ4. Can I use the software you uploaded above to update to Nougat.?. without any problems<>>???

  • No. It’s official.

  • Giselle Vasquez

    will i loose my waranty if i update my sofware doing this?

  • If you restore to stock, all system will be installed with the firmware. There’re ways you can use root-sensitive apps. See this: http://www.droidviews.com/best-way-to-hide-root-on-android-and-pass-safetnet-check/

  • Mohammad Rafique

    thanks rakesh the my problem is if i root the phone my banking app which is barclays does not work on rooted phone. is that possible i root the phone get rid off bloat wares and de root again to get the bancking app working?

  • Mazhar Abbas

    I updated my s7 to nougat with help of your instructions and it worked very well. Upload upcoming updates also. THANK YOU

  • No.

  • Avraham Chastain

    Will this work for the s7 active as well?

  • Hi, since your phone is AT&T-branded, you can’t install an unbranded firmware on it. I would suggest you to install the AT&T Nougat firmware, root your phone and manually remove the bloatware. If your phone is SIM-unlocked, installing the AT&T firmware will not relock it.

  • Mohammad Rafique

    hi Rakesh i bought a samsung galaxy s7 SM-G930A baseband : G930AUCU4APJ4 and realised its on at&t which is in usa. this phone is unlocked and is on anriod 6.0.1 i live in uk what is is the best way to upgrade it to andriod 7 and is there any way i can get uk version of andiod 7 and get rid off at&t bloatware ?

  • Samantha Bertozzi

    So…I just tried with the latest version of Odin and now Im stucked in “File Analysis”…what should I do?

  • Thanks for sharing your experience, Rick!

  • Rick Cruz (Silent)

    If anyone gets a device mismatch on The s7 edge make sure u use the odin linked , thats what i did to make it work instead of moded prince comy and all that

  • Rick Cruz (Silent)

    You download odin and the file on ur computer and u use odin to put it into ur phone

  • Jazzyfizzle

    So just to be clear, I download the Nougat file on my phone directly, and download Odin on my laptop? TIA

  • No.

  • Mazhar Abbas

    will it sim lock again

  • No, it’ll not.

  • Mazhar Abbas

    will it void knox etc

  • Mazhar Abbas

    can you make a video please

  • lucian mitro

    Is it possible to flash nougat g935f on a g935a phone? Is there any consequence to the phone?

  • Well, you’ll get the OTA only if you use the phone in the US territory, else you will have to install all new updates manually.

  • Download this firmware file: https://mega.nz/#!ZQg0FCoY!WHLOkv-PVKMzWhe4ARbXonkOIa_mh_phjU9mYSHmHL8

    Extract the file and install it using our tutorial.

  • Mazhar Abbas
  • lucian mitro

    I installed nougat on my g935a, followed the instructions and everything seems ok.
    Will it take updates OTA in the future, or now on it should be updated only manualy through Odin?

  • Try a different version of Odin.

  • Samantha Bertozzi
  • Ramiro

    Hi Rakesh,

    I’ve tried this solution before but as soon as I boot up the device after resetting it, it still feels a bit slow, specially the camera turning on, etc which is where I feel it the most. I will try again, but if it doesn’t work… will you have any other suggestions?

    Cheers,
    Rami

  • Try the firmware instead.

  • darrylkid

    I’m also having the same exact issue. The whole reason I am installing Nougat manually instead of through the air is because I think that using the T-mobile network on a A-T&T phone is interfering.

    I followed the same exact thing and I ended up still having Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Please help!!!

  • Sufian Mirza

    Also sir, I tried your previous flashing through stock recovery method, I already had pk1 marshmallow so I flashed the one after pk1, did everything made fato folder renamed it to update zip, but it shows this https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/744f6a50942e5fc7a69bee8c64dd77458d97be484e4d8f9006d868c02090997c.jpg

  • Juan

    Nevermind, I managed to find it and install it, the problem is when i did install it I didn’t have nougat i still had 6.0.1. I downloaded what you see on the screenshot and came here and followed the procedures but i still dont got nougat. I know AT&T just released nougat for the S6 the other day and it’s coming OTA, but I do not receive OTA updates. I have an AT&T Galaxy S6 but im using it on the cricket network, so I don’t know if that has something to do with it. Is there the official stock nougat for the S6 AT&T available for flash yet? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5fbc298626f2d9ff9bd6f5b416b8d7ec4d9b4ba31a67b67ce896c1682e3955b4.jpg

  • Can you show me the screenshot of the firmware folder showing all 4 files?

  • Hi Juan, remove the .rar extension and replace it with .md5. Odin can decet only .tar or ,tar.md5 files.

  • Yes. I have heard some people flashing the G935U firmware on the unlocked G935A.

  • Hi Rami,

    Perform a data factory reset via the stock recovery: http://www.droidviews.com/how-to-perform-data-factory-reset-and-wipe-cache-on-samsung-galaxy-devices/

    Doing so will fix such issues.

  • Sufian Mirza

    Sir Rakesh, I have g935a unlocked. So can I flash g935u nougat on it?

  • Ramiro

    Hi there bud, thank you for the instructions they worked like a charm on the first try.

    Now, I do feel like the phone is a bit laggy all around. I’ve cleared the cache a few times and also tested the Safe Mode to make it wasn’t an issue with an app, but unfortunately it still feels quite laggy…

    Would you have any suggestions as of what I might do to improve the performance? I have an unlocked 930a.

    Cheers,
    Rami

  • Juan

    Hello, I am attempting to put Nougat on my Galaxy S6 AT&T (SM-G920A) when I found your post on it. I saw that the post was updated and it told me to download the link and come here for instructions. When i try to add the BL file to Odin it cannot be found where it would normally be found. My laptop says no files match what you searched or no files have been found titled BL

  • Web Zo

    Thank you for your response.
    My original question was within the article you just pointed me to.

    Before I start, I need to backup. I was considering using TWRP, but it seems there is no version of TWRP that supports S7 running on Qualcom (US version). Any suggestions for software that I can use to back up all my stuff, in case things go bad and I have to restore…?

    Thanks again.

  • Web Zo

    Hello and thank you and your team for the articles. Very useful.
    (I started a discussion on a different article, however, I am continuing here because it is more relevant here…)
    I have an ATT branded S7 (930A) that is already running Nougat (got it OTA). I want to replace it with the just released 930U Nougat (released yesterday, May-8th)- want to get rid of unrequired ATT bloatware+I am now switching carriers. I downloaded the file zip file containing 930U Nougat software and it contains 5 files (AP, BL, CSC etc.). Can the procedure in this article be used for the above purpose? In the other thread, you pointed me to http://www.droidviews.com/tag/samsung-galaxy-s7-android-nougat-update/ …However, I am not sure which article among the many you were asking me to check out.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • If you phone is SIM-unlocked, installing the firmware won’t affect its status and you should be able to use your phone with no network issues.

  • Reboot the phone and enable debugging. I advised you to read the tutorial carefully.

  • Thanks for the appreciation!

  • Ghaniand Sons

    I am from Pakistan after uodating if there is any cellular issue beacuse Atnt is not an international version can any buddy tell me

  • Simple tutorial that works. Thanks

  • Kamran Hussain

    I forgot to on usb debugging… Wht will hapnd now??

  • Kamran Hussain

    dear further procedure is same after downloading all these files??

  • No

  • Kamran Hussain

    is there alternate way to download wiyhout mega?

  • It’s a file hosting site. Download G930AUCU4BQA6_7.0_ATT.7z and follow the guide.

  • Kamran Hussain

    sorry to bothering u.. wht is mega?

  • Read the tutorial and follow it.

  • Kamran Hussain

    plz go ahead?

  • Since you got a flat S7, you should install this: https://mega.nz/#!ZQg0FCoY!WHLOkv-PVKMzWhe4ARbXonkOIa_mh_phjU9mYSHmHL8

  • Kamran Hussain

    which firmware? or it doesnt matter

  • If you follow the tutorial carefully, there’s hardly any risk.

  • Kamran Hussain

    is there any risk?

  • I don’t think that can be the issue. Can you show me your Odin screen and phone’s pic while it’s booted into the download mode?

  • Isaac

    It does detect the device. It just hangs on “SetupConnection,” which is the step after I load all the files and click Start. I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the fact that I’m pretty sure the phone I bought (used) is on the very first version of the OS for the phone.

  • At which step? Does Odin not detect your device?

  • Isaac

    I’m stuck on SetupConnection, I’ve restarted the process twice. Any suggestions?

  • Fahad Ali

    after this update did my galaxy s7 still be network unlocked?

  • Robert Glen Hopper

    I tried a different version of Odin, it worked now. I was using a patched version of Odin I had from rooting before. Thank you this saved me! After rooting my phone was buggy, sluggish and run hot. Last night it locked up and stuck on att boot screen repeatedly vibrating? I was able to boot to Odin download and do this

  • Try a different version of Odin and make sure you have downloaded the correct firmware file. Can you show me the Odin log?

  • Robert Glen Hopper

    i did this thru odin and odin is saying fail model dismatch fail?? what happened

  • Yes, we’ll do that for sure. Follow us to stay updated.

  • Saraan Muhammad (Airbot)

    Thank you so much. This was a very good, detailed tutorial. My phone is now running android 7.0 without any issues at all. Will you do another tutorial if the s7 gets android 7.1?

  • Yes, it’ll still work. Installing a stock firmware involves the least possible risk. Read and understand the guide twice and go ahead.

  • Saraan Muhammad (Airbot)

    I ahve heard flashing can brick a hpone. Is this true with this tutorial. Also my S7 is still on 6.0.1, will this still work?

  • Yes you can install it. If you follow the tutorial carefully, there is no risk.

  • Saraan Muhammad (Airbot)

    Can I do this on my phone. It is an SM-G930A and the baseband version is:G930AUCS2APE1
    Also is there any risk involved in this?

  • Robert Glen Hopper

    Thank you for all the time and help

  • Yes, it’s a full firmware.

    Backup your apps and data first. You will have to select Wipe and read write mount options too.

  • Robert Glen Hopper

    One more question, this link on this page is the full firmware? In flashfire do I need to select wipe also and the read write mount option?

  • The stock firmware will overwrite everything.

  • Robert Glen Hopper

    Forgot to mention that I am currently running a engbootloader

  • Yes, you can install the full firmware using FlashFire but you won’t be able to retain root.

    You can root your phone on Nougat using a different method: http://www.droidviews.com/root-galaxy-s7-s7edge-snapdragon-variant-on-android-nougat/

  • Robert Glen Hopper

    Sorry to continue to bug you but can I use flashfire to flash this ? And will I retain root?

  • Jerry Lucas

    Thanks, will check it out.

  • Jerry Lucas

    OTA is not working for me. There is an update available but I can’t get it using OTA. BQC2 was on Mar 27th. BQC6 which I just loaded without OTA was back in Feb 17th. Now I gotta see if I can get that update. Anyone know if G935AUCU4BQA6 is rootable?

  • If you have been using the phone in the US, you will receive all future updates via OTA.

  • Yes, you can still install the Nougat firmware.

  • Jerry Lucas

    I had G935AUCU1APB5 which is the release version. I kept reading that you needed to update to all these versions. I backup my phone and downloaded G935AUCU4BQA6. Loaded all the BL, AP, CP and GSC files into Odin 3.12.3, started phone in download mode and it updated it to 7.0 So far no problems and I’m about to update it further to the March update. It’s not showing up for me if I try to update via phone settings. So will update it through PC again.

    I was shocked that I was able to upgrade from release baseband to the newest.

  • Robert Glen Hopper

    can this be done on a att s7 that has been rooted running the G930AUCS4APK1 ?

  • Try again from the beginning.

  • Misery Machines

    Same, In all versions of odin too….

  • Edge Xlendor

    please help! Stuck on “file analysis” in odin :/

  • Edge Xlendor

    Stuck on “file analysis” in odin :/

  • Edge Xlendor

    Thanks a lot !

  • That doesn’t make any difference. MD5 is just a hash value for a file. Just install the files as directed.

  • Edge Xlendor

    THANKS! Also!! I Downloaded the files for s7 edge, and they come up as tar files, shouldn’t they be tar.md5 files??

  • Nope.

  • Edge Xlendor

    Does this effect the carrier unlock/lock process of the phone ??

  • Yes you can.

  • Edge Xlendor

    I am confused about baseband version?????? I have an s7 edge (g935a) with baseband version g935AUCS4API2, can i install this on my phone??

  • Amrit Shrestha

    Finally updated my SM-G930A to Nougat. Thank You so much.

  • Glad to know!

  • I haven’t ever tried it. You can try installing the AT&T firmware but I won’t recommend doing so.

  • awais altaf

    awesome (Y) thanx.. all was good 🙂

  • RepWolf

    I want to continue using my AT&T prepaid plan but I recently bought an unlocked T-Mobile Galaxy S7 SM-G930T. I would like to use the AT&T LTE bands. Can I follow these instructions on an unlocked T-Mobile SM-G930T and turn it into a SM-G930A?
