Firmware

Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge now receiving March security update

Samsung has started rolling out this month’s Security Maintenance Release (SMR) for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in a number of markets, including Argentina, Brazil, India and the United Kingdom, bringing them in line with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.

To be a little more specific, our firmware database shows the update has begun making the rounds for the Galaxy S7 in India, Russia, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates, to name but a few of the most significant markets, and in Argentina, Brazil and the United Kingdom for the Galaxy S7 edge.

It patches a number of high-risk vulnerabilities

The March SMR plasters over eight critical and dozens of high-risk vulnerabilities in the Android OS, and an additional eleven that are exclusive to Samsung’s firmware, known as Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVEs) — a number of which have been classified as high-risk.

Samsung is rolling out the upgrade in stages, region by region, which also means the software version differs for each device depending on the market it’s destined for. To see if it’s available for your handset, head into Settings, navigate to Software Update, then hit Download Updates Manually.

Alternatively, you can grab the firmware for manual flashing from our database:

I’m on my SM-G9350, and there is a bug on latest firmwares SB3 and CSC1, now my phone bricked up and can’t even enter to recovery, it sucks and keep rebooting to recovery after installing system updates instead of rebooting system it keeps rebooting to recovery with no command and no option to select, I even can’t do a factory reset because there are no options at all, just a black screen saying can’t access to recovery cause no such file directory

Same with my wife’s s7edge, yesterday, after an ota update. Started heating, stuck on s7edge logo, and now, after trieing about one hour, started but does not pass the part where you enter the acount.. It restarts. That’s how you do bussines..

It’s freaking weird. Older phones get the new updates sooner. Still waiting on my S9 plus exynos.
