  1. I want to upgrade my s7 G930W8 from oreo to pie, I have got may security update also, so could you please tell me how I can upgrade my s7.

    Thanks

    • There is no official Pie 9.0 version for Canadian S7. You can Install Custom ROMs that are based on Pie 9.0 release, with the help of root.

      • Updates Not only bring new features. They will also fix most of the issues. Update your mobile and check. If you didn’t get better results, you have to reset your mobile hard using Stock Recovery.

    • AT&T devices have locked Bootloader. You should unlock your bootloader and FLash the “U” variant firmware. Which is Snapdragon Compatible firmware and It is USA Based unlocked firmware.

  2. Can I update via this firmware OTA? Or I have to update manually via kies. I am from India my model no is- SM-G930F
    I could not get oreo firmware. Instead, I am getting nougat. That’s why I am asking whether I will be able to get an OTA update, or I have to update it manually. Plz, answer. Thanks in advance.

    • You can try with Samsung SmartSwitch. Kies are Older. Try with Wi-Fi Connection. All your pending updates will be updated via OTA.

    • You have a Verizon device. It has a locked bootloader. Before the ODIN process, try with Samsung SmartSwitch. IF you prefer this method, you should choose “SM-G930V” variant firmware.

  3. Hi! I have Samsung galaxy s7 baseband G930w8VLS5crj2. Canadian. I want to use it in Argentina with an Argentinian carrier. Is this possible? What should I do? Thanks!

    • You can’t flash another model number. But, If you have Exynos Processor, You can try with the International variant “F.” But, Make sure you backup everything.

  4. Hi bro,
    I have G930R; which firmware should I download? Can I install a new rom on it? I m using Andriod 6 and would like to upgrade. In updates, it shows nothing.

    • I think you refer to the R4 US-Cellular version. When you can’t get the update to try with Samsung SmartSwitch, or you can flash it using ODIN.

  5. Hi, as I am not really sure if I understand this article correctly, I try to describe what I need: I have an S7 SM-G930F with Android 8.0.0. But this Android Version cannot be connected via Bluetooth with my Insulin pump; therefore, I need Android 8.1, which is not supported on S7.
    If I get this Android 8.1 version on my S7, I hope it will be connected to the Insulin pump. And if I follow your instructions, will I really get an S7 with 8.1? It would be great for me!
    (My first try with Odin, twrp, and so on “destroyed” my S7 almost completely; I hope I can bring it back to life again…)
    It would be great if anyone could help me with this issue; thanks!

    • Hi Thomas,
      I hope you are doing well.
      Did you need root access on your mobile?.
      By Flashing firmware directly, you can fix your mobile. But you may lose root access. Some apps may not work when you have root access on your mobile.
      Can you mention the app name? Most of the apps will work above Marshmallow 6.0. Maybe you have a problem with Bluetooth. Did you check it by sharing different files with other mobiles?

  6. I have a G930U s7; which stock firmware do I need to see this in the download list? I really appreciate any help you can provide.
