Galaxy A5 (2017) update brings February 2018 security patch

The February 2018 security patch is making its way to the Galaxy A5 (2017) today with an update that is rolling out in Russia. The Galaxy A series phones have been among the first to receive the latest security patches in recent months, and the trend looks set to continue (we’d count the Galaxy S8’s February 2018 patch if it hadn’t been part of a major OS update, one that Samsung has now pulled off the air). The build number for the A5 (2017) firmware is A520FXXU4BRB1.

Galaxy A5 (2017) update brings February 2018 security patch

The February security patch plugs five critical Android vulnerabilities, along with 16 possible exploits in Samsung’s software. For those who didn’t get the January 2018 security patch, the February patch also includes fixes for the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities that were recently discovered. Galaxy A5 (2017) owners can see if the update is available for their device by going into the phone’s settings, tapping Software update, then hitting the Download updates manually option. We also have the new firmware in our database, so if you prefer the longer route, you can download the firmware and use a PC to flash it on your phone.

Today (2 March 2018), I downloaded a firmware update for my A5 (2017). It has the following: A520FXXU4BRB6/A520FOJVBRB1/A520FXXU4BRAH. I am in the UK but my A5 appears to be the UAE model. Is it OK to install this update?

Exactly samsung did not give Samsung Experience 8.1 to us and they give crappy s5 neo samsung experience with nougat. Samsung did this purposefully so we wouldn’t receive the new UI.

it is different 7.0 and 7.1? for home screen you can download apk to install, and get swipe up for all apps, i tested it on my A7 2016.
