Before installing this update on your phone, please consider the following aspects:
- This firmware is just for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge SM-G935F and Galaxy S7 SM-G930F only, so don’t try installing it on another device, since it won’t work, not to mention the risk of bricking your phone.
- The update will erase all your data, so our recommendation is to perform a full backup before starting, in order to avoid an unpleasant situation.
- Make sure that your battery level is at least at 50% before starting, otherwise you risk dealing with an accidental shutdown.
