Just an FYI

 

I have flashed the non branded AU firmware on my samsung edge 7 a couple of weeks ago and on Saturday I got the OTA with security fixes and July's security patch.

 

Just checking the firmware for all 3 of our telcos here (spark, voda, 2degrees) and they still only have firmware dated back in April.

 

 

 

 

Do you have a link to the non-branded edge firmware? very interested.

 

So do you get OS updates quickly as well? or just security updates? 

 

 

 

EDIT: and what model number is your 7edge?

You can get the latest non-branded firmware from www.sammobile.com

 

And the way Android updates are done, security updates are OS updates. Unless by OS updates you mean Android version updates, in which case OP won't be able to confirm this since the S7 comes with 6.0.1 out-of the box. Regardless, by flashing non-branded firmware you'd get OTAs directly from Samsung, without any carrier interference.
