Extract (unzip) the firmware file

Boot Phone in Download Mode (press and hold Home + Power + Volume Down buttons)
Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
Add the firmware file to AP / PDA
Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked

Re: Galaxy S7 Firmware updates

I did the flash of the Telus firmware last night.  Ber very careful with this and back up everything first.  After flashing it, I was presented with a Passcode screen that is part of the bootloader.  It wanted a password yet none of my passwords or PIN worked and it wipes the phone.

I will wait for.the OTA. But. If we are getting the July update, will it include what we missed by not getting May and June updates?

That's the secure boot feature. I have it enabled, so it popped up on me after flashing (and after every reboot), but it took my passcode fine.

 

You must have enabled it at some point and forgotton.....

 

So far, so good for me. I had to flash the bootloader and modem also.

 

OoOoOoOoO WiFi calling. Let's see if I can get it working....

Re: Galaxy S7 Firmware updates

It was brutal to actually get it to enable, but yes.. it's working for me.

I successfully registered my number and 911 info, activated it and got the SMS from Rogers saying it was working, but it didn't actually enable until several hours later.

Re: Galaxy S7 Firmware updates

Here's a screenshot of it working on my S7 Edge (you can see the wifi calling icon next to the wifi).
