How to see your Android device firmware version or number?

Most OEMs show the firmware code of a device as the “Build Number.” To see your device firmware/build number; go to settings >>> about >>> build number. Or go to Settings >>> About Device >>> Software Information >>> Software Version (For HTC users).

  1. I have relocated to India and am now trying to flash my password/email forgotten, long-time unused Samsung S7. I am getting stuck at the firmware point….is it possible to get an India-coded firmware into the phone to override the old firmware? Or is there an alternative available for the firmware that is currently on the phone (which does not seem to be available while attempting a flash)?

    • If logging into your mobile is the only problem, you can reset your mobile by booting into recovery mode. But, When you can’t use Indian mobile operators, you can flash “INS” code firmware.

  2. Hi, I have A202FXXU3BTK1/A202FXXU3BTK2 hard to tell which one I have picked for firmware and which region those belong to because I want to unbrick my phone.
