    Thumbs up No firmware on Galaxy A8 + (SM-A730F) Russia since November 16, 2019

    My Galaxy a8 + (SM-A730F) Russia is forgotten by the manufacturer! The last update was November 16, 2019! And the Galaxy A8 (SM-A530F) is still receiving updates. A8 + is better than a simple A8! NOT FAIR

    Hi there

    Could you go to Software Info on your device, screenshot it from top to bottom and post it here?

    1. Download SmartSwitch for PC (NOT to be used, just for the drivers): [ Login above or register to see download links. ]
    2. Download Odin 3.14.x: [ Login above or register to see download links. ]
    3. Download latest firmware for Multi-CSC OXM: [ Login above or register to see download links. ]

    How to flash firmware to your phone:



    1. Extract (un-rar) the firmware file (i.e. to folder c:\Odin) ***
    2. Download [ Login above or register to see download links. ]
    3. Extract Odin ZIP file (i.e. to folder c:\Odin)
    4. Open Odin v3.14.1
    5. Power OFF your A8+
    6. Reboot Phone in Download Mode: Hold down Vol-UP & Power; scroll in Recovery to "Boot to Bootloader". Connect your A8+ to your PC
    7. Wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
    8. Add the firmware files to their designated slots (AP in AP, BL in BL, CP in CP, HOME_CSC in CSC). USERDATA stays EMPTY!
    9. Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
    10. Click the start button, sit back and wait few minutes

    It's possible you won't receive OTA after installing this firmware (unless the same build will be released in Russia)

    You suggest that I flash the Brazilian (ZTO) firmware, but I have a Russian region (SER).

    It's Multi-CSC OXM; in this Multi-CSC, you've also the SER CSC (Russia)

    If you follow my instructions, nothing will change on your device (your data will stay intact). But the choice is yours off-course and you could wait till an update arrives in Russia.
