HTC One M9

 

HTC users are eagerly waiting for their Lollipop 5.1.1 Update, especially the HTC One M9 owners who bought the company's latest expensive flagship.

 

HTC one M9

 

Now, the Official Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update is rolling-out Over-the-air (OTA) to HTC One M9 users worldwide. The update packs the hugely acclaimed Stagefright exploit patch.

 

 

The OTA package is about 900MB in size and brings lots of bug fixes, security enhancements and performance improvements to the flagship which is expected to receive the Marshmallow update by Early 2016.

 



India is the first country to receive the latest security patches for the month of August on the Galaxy S6 Edge and other countries should follow soon. The 63MB download will change your current firmware version to G925IDVS3EPH2 and will a security vulnerability on the device, that Samsung has termed as "critical." If you are thinking that this patches up the QuadRooter vulnerability that we have been hearing so much about, you would be wrong. To the best of our knowledge, QuadRooter only affects Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is powered by the Exynos 7420 SoC. Even if there is a connection, it was not mentioned in the changelog.



There are of course other general improvements in performance and optimizations, and if you want to go into the details, just consult the changelog while installing the update or check the screenshot above. Hopefully, the regular S6 will also be getting the same update, but we are not sure if or when it is coming. In the meanwhile, be wary of shady apps and always check the permission list before allowing the software access to your device.

The Galaxy J7 Prime had started to receive the security patch for the month of February just yesterday and today, the same update is rolling out to the J5 Prime. Both updates feature no major changes or improvements apart from filling in the security gaps in the base Android build.


The updates will bring build version G610FDDU1AQA2 for the Galaxy J7 Prime and G570MUBU1AQA3 for the Galaxy J5 Prime. Both packages will land on your devices via OTA within the next few days.


In other news, the next iterations of these two devices, aka the Galaxy J5 (2017) and the Galaxy J7 (2017) are speculated to be released this March with mid-range specs. If you are interested in the specs of the J7 (2017), check it out here. The J5 (2017) will also have similar specs as the J7 (2017), except for a weaker SD 617 chip and a smaller 5.2-inch 720p display.

We reported yesterday that the Galaxy S6 Edge + in Europe has started to receive the October patch and today we have even more good news for our readers in Europe as the S6 Edge has now also started to receive the same. The update will only be available on unlocked versions of the S6 Edge in Europe as you already know, so if you have a contract with a carrier, you will have to wait till a carrier specific version of the October patch arrives on your handset.


The update will fix 68 bugs/susceptibilities found on all Android 6.0.1 powered handsets, along with Samsung's own unique set of fixes for bugs exclusive to the range. The only thing we really know about the unique fixes which Samsung will bring with this update is the fact that it will solve an issue which causes the S6 Edge to hang at times while attempting to switch from one app to another. The rest of it is largely undisclosed in order to stop the hackers and cyber criminals from exploiting those gaps in security on the units that have not yet been updated.

If you own any one of the two Samsung flagship smartphones, you should receive a notification for another new update very soon. This one will upgrade the firmware to version FXXU1APE9. The Korean OEM wasn't particularly famous for releasing fast and rapid updates, but this year, things have changed for the good. Multiple updates have been rolled out since the two phones were released in March, addressing bugs and improving stability in the process.


This one fixes a complex issue in which the power saving mode was disabled as soon as Google Now was launched. It will also resolve the initial flickering that some users complained about while playing back recorded footage. Users will be able to save files to the SD card without any problem now and according to Samsung, "icon location cycle has been changed to improve screen clarity" on the Always On display.


The update is a midsized 332MB file for the S7, and a 353MB one for the S7 Edge. It is an OTA update as usual and we recommend the use of Wi-Fi for downloading them. Although you should receive an automatic notification, you can always check from Settings >About device >Check for updates to see if the patch has arrived on your device yet.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are now receiving the November patch from T-Mobile. To be honest, we were a little surprised as it's not often that a Samsung phone receives the monthly security patch this early. In fact, T-Mobile has not even listed the OTA update on its website yet. Therefore, feel free to check manually from Settings > About device > Software update, but do not be disappointed if you cannot see it being available for you phone right now.


The update comes in an OTA package of about 82MB for both the S7 and the S7 Edge. Post the download and installation, the S7's firmware version will change to G930TUVU4PK1 and that of the S7 Edge to G935TUVU4APK1. Even though there isn't any concrete document to confirm it, this update could also make the S7 and S7 Edge compatible with 256 QAM and 64 QAM for improved download speeds. We will surely get to know more in the next few days, in the meanwhile, we just hope that the manufacturers and the carriers continue to work together and provide their customers with such timely updates!

European versions of the Galaxy S6 Edge + smartphones are now receiving the October SMR patch, right on the heels of the S7 and S7 Edge. The update will address seven issues exclusive to the Samsung smartphones and about 68 vulnerabilities/bugs shared by all Android devices running on Marshmallow 6.0.1 (post the September SMR installation).


Feel free to check for the update from Settings > About phone > Software updates manually, but even if you don't, you should be prompted to upgrade your device when it becomes available to your phone. Connect to Wi-Fi in order to finish the download and installation process according to your own convenience. Once the update is downloaded and installed properly, your phone's Build Number should change to MMB29K.G928FXXU3BPJ3.


Unfortunately, the regular S6 and the S6 Edge is yet to receive the October patch and we are not quite sure when it will be made available for them. Nevertheless, it should be going live any day now.

Few days ago, Microsoft released a patch for a critical remote code execution vulnerability, CVE-2015-1635 (MS15-034). Now, it has been spotted being exploited in the wild by researchers at the SANS Institute.

 

"Denial of Service (DoS) exploits are widely available to exploit CVE-2015-1635, a vulnerability in HTTP.sys, affecting Internet Information Server (IIS)," noted Johannes Ullrich, Chief Technology Officer of the SANS Internet Storm Center. The vulnerability affects Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2.

 

According to UK research firm Netcraft, over 70 million websites hosted on around 900,000 servers could be vulnerable. "Due to the ease with which this vulnerability can be exploited, we recommend that you expedite patching this vulnerability" - Ullrich said.

The year 2016 is coming to an end and Samsung has just detailed everything about the final patch of the year. Google had released the December SMR a few days ago, along with Android 7.1.1 Nougat for select devices and had given OEM companies access to the firmware. If you are wondering when your Samsung phone is going to get Nougat version 7.1.1, we have no clue, because Samsung is still far from releasing the final, stable version of Nougat 7.0 yet.


The December patch however, is definitely coming to all the recent smartphones from the company's arsenal, as well as a few of the old ones. Apart from the multiple fixes and performance improvements from Google itself, the patch will also address 15 issues that are unique to Samsung smartphones. Fortunately, it will solve a problem that I have personally been bogged down with. The mobile Wi-Fi hotspot would turn on automatically sometimes on my phone and the password would simply be presented in the log!



When exactly your smartphone will receive the December patch depends on your location, carrier and of course, the model that you are using. Nevertheless, it shouldn't be too long now.

The security patch for January 2017 has started to roll out to the Galaxy J2 Prime and the Galaxy Grand Lite. While it's only natural for the J2 Prime to receive the update as it was only released last November, it is both surprising and good to see that Samsung still remembers the Grand Lite which was released almost three years ago in 2014. However, an upgrade to Lollipop is not officially on the cards for the Grand Lite as it continues to run on the ancient Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS.


The firmware version containing the update for the J2 Prime is G532GDXU1AQA4, while the one for the Grand Lite is I9060CUBS0AQA1. If you have an old Samsung smartphone that you want to upgrade but an official upgrade from Samsung is highly unlikely, head over to our firmware section and find the right custom ROM for your particular handset model. The only thing is that we recommend taking a look at our tutorial at least once before attempting to flash any ROM updates.

The January security patch has now officially started to roll out to the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 on Verizon. One may argue that it's already February but it's better late than never. Surprisingly, it was the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge which had received the SMR update a few days earlier than their newer counter parts. The firmware versions have been listed below respectively.


Galaxy S6 - G920VVRS4CQA3
Galaxy S6 Edge - G928VVRS3BQA1
Galaxy Edge+ - G925VVRS4CQA3
Galaxy Note 5 - N920VVRS3BQA1


Wait till you get a notification or search manually for the update from your settings menu, but it may take a few days before it reaches every device in the US, that's being carried by Verizon. The ROM files are not yet available for download, but you can always check out our firmware section for the latest updates that are available anytime you want.

The Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Tab 3 from Samsung may be old, but they have not yet been forgotten. While an OS upgrade to even Lollipop is not exactly on the cards (at least not officially that is) for the two aged devices, T-Mobile is currently rolling out the latest February security patch to them. It is always good to see carriers and OEMs remembering their old devices once in a while.


If you are still using any of the two legacy devices on T-Mobile, the OTA update should hit your phone or tablet any time now. Firmware version M919UVSFQA1 comes in for the Galaxy S4, while the Galaxy Tab 3 gets updated to T217TUVSBQA1.


In the meanwhile, if you have an old smartphone that you want to update but Samsung isn't really likely to roll one out for you anytime soon, head over to our firmware section for a wide list of custom ROM updates.

The February security patch has been reaching Samsung handsets pretty fast and the company has shipped them out to even some of the ancient ones, like the Galaxy S4 on T-Mobile. The Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy J5 (2016) has just started to receive the monthly patch as well. The firmware version released this month for the A8 and the J5 (2016) is A810FXXU1AQA2 and J510MNUBU2AQA5 respectively. The J5 Prime and the J7 Prime had already received the update a few days ago. As always, feel free to cheek from Settings > About device > System updates for the OTA file, if you haven't received a notification yet.


In the meanwhile, if you have a smartphone that had received its last official update ages ago, check out our firmware section for all firmware versions released for Samsung smartphones. You will find custom ROMs and official updates over there, but before you try to flash anything onto your phone manually, just go through our tutorial on how to use Odin3.

Samsung continues to support the Galaxy Note 4 with regular security updates as the February patch begins to hit the unlocked Galaxy Note 4 in Europe. Considering that even some of the its newer devices have not yet received the February patch from Samsung, it is a bit surprising. Nevertheless, it's good to see Samsung still supporting its older flagships.


The firmware version for this update is N910FXXS1DQB4 and it brings all the fixes included in the February SMR release along with a few of Samsung's own custom bug fixes and performance improvements. Although people keep saying that the Galaxy Note 4 is now too old to receive any updates from the OEM, Samsung keeps rolling them out and that's a good thing. Nevertheless, an official Nougat update is certainly not coming to the Note 4 or any of its contemporary handsets.



If you are in Europe, the update should hit your device within the next few weeks. If you are in any other region, you may have to wait a while before getting it. You can also head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones.

Although we are already into the second week of March, not all smartphones are fortunate enough to expect the March SMR package from OEMs and carriers yet. In fact, most older and budget devices have not even received the January security patch. If you own a Galaxy Note 4 or a Galaxy J5 Original though, you are in luck as T-mobile and Samsung respectively have released the January security patch for them.



The unlocked versions and even certain carrier variants of the Note 4 had started to receive the February patch a few days ago in Europe, so it is a bit disappointing to see T-Mobile taking so much time in rolling out even the dated updates in the US. Nevertheless, the 60.54MB package with build number MMB29M.N910TUVS2EQB1 should arrive via OTA on your Note 4 anytime now.



On the Galaxy J5 original, the January update arrives with the build number MMB29M.J500FNXXU1BQA3. This one comes straight from Samsung and not a carrier. Just as with all other January security updates from Samsung, this one will address 67 potential security issues common to all Android devices and 28 of Samsung's own custom fixes for vulnerabilities exclusive to Samsung smartphones.

As expected, the Galaxy Tab S2 is now receiving the Nougat update form Samsung in certain regions. The OTA update is hitting both the 9.7-inch version and the 8-inch version, but not in the same areas. According to reports, the 8-nch Galaxy Tab S2 with the model number SM-T715 is receiving Nougat in Italy, while in Germany, the 9.7 inch variant with model number SM-T810 is getting the same upgrade. However, it's only a matter of days before all devuces in the regions start receiving the upgrade to the latest and greatest Android OS.


The good news is that the 954.93MB file also contains the latest April security patch, making this a truly useful and complete update for the two tablets. Apart from the usual bells and whistles that are associated with each and every Nougat update, the Tab S2 will not feature a completely new user interface, that is better, faster and more secure, thanks to the April SMR. You may have to wait a while if you are not in any of these two countries, but now that it has staretd to roll out, you can rest assure that wait won't be too long. In the meanwhile, if you want to try out the Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S2 before its official release in your region, head over to our firmware section.

Although the upgrade to Android Nougat is probably the update that all of you are waiting for when it comes to the C9 Pro, unfortunately, it isn't out yet. Nevertheless, the April SMR from Android, along with Samsung's own set of bug fixes for the Galaxy C9 Pro has just started to hit the high-end device. The report from The Android Soul did not specifically mention the regions receiving the updates currently, but chances are that all of the regions will start receiving the OTA update within a few days because there are only a handful of nations where the C9 Pro is being sold currently.


The firmware version of the update is C900FDDU1AQC5 and it should provide protection against all the latest threats to security posed by malware and hackers to the overall Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS and the overlying Samsung UI. Don't worry much about the Nougat update right now as the C9 Pro is guaranteed to get it soon (fingers crossed!). Also, the Marshmallow v6.0.1 OS runs pretty smooth on the SD 653 SoC and 6GB RAM, so you shouldn't have much to complain about. However, if you want to check out some custom ROMs and firmware updates from various sources, head over to our firmware section now.

The Galaxy J7 (2016) just started to receive the Android security patch for the month of April in India. The OTA package is quite slim at only 25.78MB and has the build number MMB29K.J710FXXU3AQD4. Along with the 49 CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) fixes included in all Android SMR releases for the month of April, Samsung also includes 16 of its own fixes that are unique to the manufacturer's smartphones only. If you own a J7 (2016) in India, you should be prompted for the update anytime now.



The S7 and the S7 Edge has also started to receive the same Android SMR update but this report is apparently coming in from Europe instead of Asia. The OTA update includes the same fixes from Google and Samsung as the ones mentioned above. It might be a while though before you get to see the update pop up on your phone. How much you will need to wait will depend largely on your location.

Finally, as we almost near the end of the month, the April security patch for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have finally arrived for Verizon users. The software version is NRD90M.G930VVRU4BQC5 and along with the Android Security Maintenance Release for the month, it also adds a few custom changes from the carrier and the manufacturer as well.



Users of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on Verizon will now be able to use Verizon's One Talk feature, which had been missing from the two handsets up until now. In case you are not aware what the One Talk feature is exactly; it basically allows a user to connect his/her mobile and office device to one registered Verizon number. You will also find Knox Mobile Security as an option on your device after the update. Reportedly, it updates the Amazon shopping application on the two devices to v8.1.1 as well.

The security patches from Google and Samsung for the month of April have finally arrived for the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and the Note 5 in India. However, there's just one problem with this; we are already a week into May! Considering that these are all flagship smartphones from the company, the delay is disappointing and unexpected.


The update comes in at a hefty 169.79MB for the Galaxy S7 (G930FXXU1DQD7) and 176.49MB for the Galaxy S7 Edge (G935FXXU1DQD7). The size is a bit surprising, given that the same patch comes in at only about 14MB for the Galaxy Note 5. We are guessing the size difference is because the updates for the S7 and S7 Edge contains many more of Samsung's custom improvements than the one released for the Note 5.



As I always say, it's better late than never! Check your smartphones now to see if it has arrived on your smartphone. Also, do check out our firmware section to see if you are missing out on any major firmware upgrades; official or unofficial.

Although Android Nougat for the Galaxy Tab A was released just a few days ago, unfortunately, it was meant only for the Tab A 10.1 (2016) and not its smaller, older sibling. When reports about an update being rolling out for the older tablet began to circulate, many of us hoped against our better judgement that maybe Samsung is feeling particularly generous this year towards the Tab A line-up! However, that was not meant to be, because firmware version P350ZSU1BQD5 only contains the April security update, a few minor improvements and some bug fixes introduced by Samsung. The Wi-Fi + LTE version should also get it soon, but at this moment, just the Galaxy Tab A Wi-Fi only variant is receiving the update via OTA.



In case you still own the aged Galaxy Core Prime released by Samsung back in 2014, you should be pleased to know that Samsung is currently rolling out the same April security update for both versions of the device as well. If you were hoping that Nougat is coming to the Core Prime, we suggest that you try a custom ROM!

The latest flagship handsets and an old smartphone from 2015 just received the May security patch from Samsung in India and reportedly, these three are the first ones to receive the latest Android SMR in the country from the Korean company. The OTA package (firmware version G950FXXU1AQE5) seems surprisingly light for a 613MB file, given the fact that Samsung doesn't mention much about the improvements it brings along with the May security update. Nevertheless, check out the screenshot above which details the info as seen.



Firmware version J700FXXU4BQE3 with the May Security update also started landing on the Galaxy J7 Original (SM-J700F) at roughly the same time in India, but it comes in at a much smaller size of 144MB. Check out the screenshot just above the paragraph to see some of the details of the update. No details regarding the security patches were revealed so as to prevent cyber criminals and hackers from bypassing them. Nevertheless, it contains 54 Android CVE patches and 11 patches from Samsung's own arsenal.

The Galaxy A5 (2017) has just started to receive the latest security patch from Samsung in Europe. As it is the case with all Android smartphones that will be receiving the patch, the May Security Maintenance Release addresses 54 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) on the smartphone. Additionally, 11 more patches from Samsung's end will also be making their way onto the A5 (2017) with the OTA update.


The standard sized 155MB update comes in the form of firmware version A520FXXU1AQE2 and should be released in other regions within the next few weeks. If you are in Europe however, the update could be hitting your device anytime now. You can always check from Settings > About device > Software updates like we always mention, but it's not really necessary, given that the prompts are usually instant and automatic nowadays.

Although the Galaxy Note 5 on T-Mobile is running on the latest version of the Android Nougat OS upgrade offered by Samsung yet, strangely enough, it did not receive the April security update for some reason. However, that should no longer be an issue because T-Mobile has already started to roll out the May security Update for its users across the US.


The firmware version of the update is N920TUVU4EQE1 and it comes in at a decent size of 209.56 MB. Even though it's not a particularly big file, use your Wi-Fi if you have it (you better get one soon if you don't!). Check out the improvements it brings to the Galaxy Note 5 below and in the screenshot.



• Updated Application: GMS
• The Security of your device has been improved.
A software update can include but is not limited to:
• Device Stability Improvements, bug fixes
• New and/or enhanced features
• Further improvements to performance

The Galaxy S8+ had started to receive the June Security Patch in Europe a few hours ago and now a new report has confirmed that the same update has also started to land on the Indian variant. It is just a maintenance update but it is quite a significant one for a number of reasons. Firstly, the monthly SMR for June actually addresses 96 vulnerabilities in the base Android OS; which is in itself quite a large hole to fill! Add to that the fact that it also carries a few of Samsung's own updates to the UI and it suddenly begins to seem like quite a significant update.



Apparently, the most prominent change which this update brings to the S8+ are new colors for the navigation bar background. Given all that it is carrying, the 453.72MB size is quite understandable. Did you start to receive the update in your location yet? If you did and you don't live in Europe or India, please let us know in the comments.

The Galaxy Note Edge is a dying smartphone, but Samsung still loves it. Well, at least T-Mobile does anyway! The Note Edge was the first of its kind from Samsung as it pioneered that iconic curved display for the Note series which has now become the staple for flagship Samsung smartphones. The curves have evolved so much since but the Note Edge has managed to hold its unique charm still today. It's good to see the latest June security patch make its way onto the smartphone via T-mobile.


While it may not be Nougat 7.0 (and it never will be unfortunately via official means), this OTA update does bring in as much as 96 bug fixes and loophole patches for the base Android OS. The version of the firmware is N915TUBS2DQE4 and you should be receiving it any time now if you are on T-Mobile. But what if you own an unlocked version of the Galaxy Note Edge in the US? Will you be getting the same? Technically you should but Samsung US has been absolutely negligent in regard to rolling out updates for its unlocked American variants recently, so that might take a while if it has not arrived on your smartphone already. It should be noted that Verizon users already got the same update for their Galaxy Note Edge smartphones about two weeks ago.

The latest versions of the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 have just started to receive their security patches for the month of June in India. Both updates will fix 23 security vulnerabilities unique to the Samsung phones, in addition to the 96 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) currently shared by all smartphones running on the Android OS. If you are reading this in India and you own either the Galaxy A5 (2017) or the Galaxy A7 (2017), look out for the update because it's about to land on your smartphone, if it hasn't already.

 

The Galaxy A5 (2017) and the Galaxy A7 (2017) joins the list of Samsung phones that had also started to receive the same security patch recently. In case you are not aware, models reportedly getting the June security patch include the Galaxy J5 (2017), Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 4.

The Galaxy Note 4 may not be getting Android 7.0 Nougat officially from Samsung, but the OEM is still providing regular monthly updates to the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. While all other major US carrier variants and the unlocked versions had already received the security patch for June, AT&T wasn't there yet. Fortunately for its users, the carrier has now joined the likes of Verizon and T-Mobile by rolling out the June security patch for the Note 4.


The OTA update will come in at an ultraslim 23MB package and if you are using the Note 4 on AT&T, it should be hitting your device anytime now, if it hasn't already. Firmware version of the SMR update is N910AUCS2EQF1.


Update: It seems that the same monthly security update is also out for the Galaxy Note Edge. Firmware version for this one is N915AUCS2DQF1 and it comes in at a slightly bigger size of 27MB.

Although no one can really tell when it will actually be making its way onto your particular smartphone model and region, what we can tell you is that the monthly security patch for July is finally ready and Samsung could be rolling it out to your smartphone anytime now. Unfortunately, that "anytime" encompasses a very long time for some handsets, but latest higher end and flagship models should be seeing the update notification by next week.

 

In order to keep the securities and vulnerabilities from being exploited, Samsung has not unveiled them all as you would expect. Nevertheless, feel free to check out the public info which is available here. It seems that this month's base Android Security Maintenance Release addresses 65 common vulnerabilities and bugs shared by all Android-powered smartphones. Of course, as always, Samsung will also include some of his own patches (16 this month) specific to its own smartphone models. If any of you have already started to receive the July security patch on your Samsung smartphone or Tablet, do inform us in the comments.

The Galaxy Note 4 is too old to receive an upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat now but that doesn't mean that Samsung has forgotten the old Note from 2014. It has till date received steady updates that have kept it fully functional and secure, in spite of being almost three years old now. It's always good to see old Samsung devices get latest updates and that's why it's our pleasure to bring you the news that if you own a Galaxy Note 4 in Europe, you should be able to see the Android security patch for the month of July making its way on to your Note 4 anytime now.


The build version of the firmware is N910FXXS1DQG5 and it should be somewhere around 199MB in size. As is the case with every Samsung security update, the package will fix 16 vulnerabilities in Samsung's own firmware and of course, the 65 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures shared by all Android smartphones in general. Let us know in the comments if you can see the update arrive for you Galaxy Note 4 in some other locations as well.

Samsung has recently shown a lot of responsibility and vigilance by updating even some of its three-year old handsets with the latest security patches and today we have similar news for a bunch of them. Check out the list below and see if your older Galaxy handset made it onto this list, or did it already receive the July security patch quite a while back.


• Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
• Galaxy Note Edge (China)
• Galaxy A5 2016
• Galaxy A5 2017


It is expected that along with Google's July security patch for the base Android OS, the OTA update will also bring some of Samsung's own little fixes for its smartphones' security loopholes. If you are wondering which firmware builds will be hitting the devices, check below for details.


Galaxy S6 Edge Plus - G928GUBS3CQG1
Galaxy Note Edge (China) - N9150ZCS1CQG1
Galaxy A5 2016 - A510FXXU4CQG1
Galaxy A5 2017 - A520FXXU2AQG6


In case you cannot see any available update yet, don't worry, it will be there soon.

The Galaxy J5 is an old low-mid range device now but Samsung has not yet put it out of its security update system yet. While Android Nougat is not assured for the old smartphone (it has not been confirmed yet), it is still getting the security updates on a monthly basis to keep things safe and secure for its users. The July security update has started to hit various regions in Europe now and if you own the J5 Original in the area, you should be prompted for a firmware update very soon now.

 

The update itself comes in at a nominal size of only 45MB, with the build number J500FNXXS1BQG3, so the download should be a quick one. In addition to the 65 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) shared by all Android smartphones and tablets, the OTA update also includes 16 of the Korean OEM's own fixes for its smartphones. Let us know when you start to see the update in other regions as well.

Surprisingly enough, Samsung started rolling out the August security patch to the Galaxy J7 Prime on the first day of August, even before Google but that's a different report which you can read here. This report here is all about the Galaxy S7 Edge receiving the August security update from Samsung in Mexico, as per a report by SamMobile. If you have news regarding the same update making rounds in other regions as well, do inform us in the comments section.


The patch fixes 40 security issues in total for all Samsung smartphones, with 28 of them being from Google and the remaining 12 from Samsung. Firmware version on the OTA package is G935FXXU1DQH3 in Mexico, but it will vary slightly, depending on what country you are in and what version of the Galaxy S7 Edge you are using (carrier locked, unlocked, Exynos, Snapdragon etc.).
