After a round of beta releases for selected users, Samsung finally released the official Nougat builds for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in mid-January. The Nougat OTA first hit the United Kingdom and then to countries like France, Germany, Norway, Ireland, United Arab Emirates and so on. The OTA, however, was only for the international single-SIM Exynos variant of the Galaxy S7 (SM-G930F) and S7 Edge (SM-G935F) only.

Since I own the dual-SIM model of the Galaxy S7 Edge and was dying to test the Nougat update on my phone, I flashed the SM-G935F firmware. The firmware installed fine but it broke VoLTE support on the phone. The day finally came when Samsung started releasing the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the dual-SIM model of the Galaxy S7 (SM-G930FD) and S7 Edge (SM-G935FD). If you own a non-rooted S7, you can request the latest Nougat OTA update from Settings> About device> Software update.

Since the official Nougat firmwares are out for SM-G930FD and SM-G935FD models, you can now download and install the Android 7 Nougat Firmware on Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge (SM-G930FD/G935FD) manually. If you don’t know where to download the official firmwares and flash them using Odin, this tutorial is just for you. Just follow our detailed guide and you’ll have Android Nougat up and running on your very S7 and S7 Edge.

Install Android 7 Nougat Firmware on Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge (SM-G930FD/ G935FD)

Already downloaded the firmware? Now, follow the instructions given below carefully.

  1. Download Odin3_v3.12.3.zip and extract it on your desktop.
  2. Extract the downloaded firmware zip file on your desktop. You’ll find 5 files with .tar.md5 extension inside the extracted folder. You can use 7Zip, WinRar, Power Archiver, etc. for the job.
  3. Make sure you have Samsung USB Drivers installed on your computer.
  4. Go to Settings> Developer options and enable USB debugging.
  5. The Nougat firmware will wipe the internal storage of your Galaxy S7, so don’t forget to backup your apps, images, videos, messages, contacts and other data before proceeding.
  6. Having made the preparations, turn off your Galaxy S7 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 and launch the .exe file to launch it.
  8. Now connect your Galaxy S7 to your computer using a USB cable.
  9. The ID:COM port on Odin will be highlighted as soon as your device is detected.
  10. Now click the BL button, navigate to the firmware folder and add BL_G935FXXU1DQAZ_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5 to it.
  11. Then click the AP button and add AP_G935FXXU1DQAZ_REV00_user_low_ship_meta.tar.md5 file to it. Since the AP file is huge in size, it might take some time for it to be added in Odin.
  12. Click the CP button and add CP_G935FXXU1DQAF_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5.
  13. Installing the CSC_ODD_G935FODD1DQAZ_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5 file will wipe your phone’s data. If you don’t want that, add the HOME_CSC file to the CSC field.
  14. Make sure your Odin screen looks like my screenshot and then click the Start button.Android 7 Nougat Firmware on Galaxy S7
  15. The firmware installation will take some minutes to finish, so wait patiently 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.
  18. Your device will take about 5-7 minutes to boot up normally after the firmware installation.

You will then be greeted by the welcome setup screen.

  8. I’m already having nougat…but the problem is with Samsung Pay.

  9. It is S7 edge.
    Then how to get updates whenever there is an official update…
    Is there any solution for that.
    Thanks 🙂

  10. Do you have the S7 or S7 Edge?

    Anyway,
    1. Yes you can any firmware on your phone.

    2.If you purchased you phone from UAE and install the Indian firmware, you won’t get the official OTA updates.

  11. I have no prior experience on flashing the mobile. I have two doubts
    1. I have UAE firmware on my mobile… can I install India firmware.
    2. Will I be able to get the latest India updates through OTA
    Please clear my doubts before I proceed.
    Thanks in advance.

  12. Bro just did what u advised. Still no help. Issue is there. Can u advise some thing else?
    Can future security update of Android resolve those issue?

  13. Great Thanks bro.. A long 1+ user coming back to SG7 after a long time so wanted to make sure the process is right..

  14. Yes, just flash the 4 files in Odin. As for the CSC, you can flash any of them. With Home_CSC, you’ll get OTA updates but VoLTE wont work. I was able to use VoLTE only after flashing the CSC file. That’swhy Irecommended to flash the CSC file.

  16. Hi.. I have a Singapore bought 930FD (S7), and have the Indian 7.0 update file, so just flash them in ODIN? Also why not Home CSC and only CSC? If i update will i get the OTA updates from samsung on Indian Operator? Also would Knox hold? Thanks in advance..
