    Firmware downloads are now available for some of the models for the S7 and S7 Edge.

    This means that users can flash their firmware via Odin in case of problems and will prove very useful for rooted users in future.

    The source listed here does indeed have every complete firmware plus iterative updates.
    Check your specific device with the list of firmware available.
    However, using this firmware to update isn't necessary. If there is an update available, it'll usually be pushed to your device within a week or two after release.

    Added T-Mobile (USA) and Canada to post #1. Global models now have over 200+ worldwide firmwares listed for each model.

    I checked in my settings under system update and found this. Has anyone else found or installed it? Is it good or bad? Screenshot_20160321-181709.png

    That would depend on your model of Galaxy S7/Edge, CSC and Product code and/or carrier. Only 20 models to choose from. See, here.

    As per post #1...

    xcv.png AT&T just announced that their global two-person android updating and Crap-ware stuffing team is still going through their court mandated detox program. They are expected to be released in June 2016. They are expected to report promptly (by AT&T standards) for duty within 3 months of that date.

    Still nothing for AT&T and Verizon yet. These 2 carriers, unlike all other models, release their own heavily modified firmware themselves and not via Samsung. Therefore, if you switch carriers on these 2 models, you will no longer receive firmware updates.

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums vito8486 :)

    The only certain way to determine which of the 200+ stock Samsung firmwares came with your Global, G935F, model is by accessing the CSC and Product codes, which is not available to you as you cannot boot up

    Which country and carrier are you with and was your stock firmware carrier branded?

    OK... you have a grey market phone that was not intended for sale in the U.S. and you cannot access which of the 200+ global firmwares it came with. Therefore, you may as well, since there is no U.S. firmware for the G935F, download and flash the stock Samsung unbranded firmware for the U.K. See, below. Once you have flashed it and the phone is running, you can install, free from the Play Store, Phone INFO ★Samsung★ and run it. Under Product code, you may be able to determine your original Product code and use that to flash the correct firmware that will allow you to receive OTA or Smart Switch updates.

    In older Samsung Galxy S models like the S2 an app called Car Mode in your Settings made that work. I think they left that out of the S7 models. I don't have one to check so I'm not really sure it's not there. But chatter around the interwebs makes it seem like it's no longer included. There's even one warning that downloading Car Mode from the Play Store messes the S7s up. Back to the ROMS.

    Don't forget SamMobile for Stock Firmware. That sites been around a long time servicing the Samsung community.

    Personally, I don't use Car Mode, however the Galaxy S7 edge has a DriveMode (which I have disabled). I suspect it is the same as the old "Car Mode"

    You can also use a PC & use Samsung's Smart Switch or KIES3 desktop tools to d/l & push the update to your phone.
    http://www.samsung.com/us/smart-switch/
    http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/app/kies

    You may get a pop up when using KIES3 stating to use SmartSwitch:
    IDK if it's optional,or,if Kies3 isn't compatible with the S7/Edge.one way to find out ....................
