Just a quick heads up, that installing Nougat as explained above, will trip your Gear VR headset. Meaning it will not work until Oculus and Samsung issue updates to solve this.

labs23: Have you guys tried the new Aus. XSA firmware? How was it?

 

 

 

Haven't tried it - but saw it went up on sammobile the other day, very tempting to flash to XSA from BTU, but BTU seems to get updates faster.

XSA used to get updates faster than BTU (when on MM) but BTU was the testing ground for Nougat so it's currently the better one to be on. Saying that I'll be heading back to XSA soon (doubt there's much difference to be honest). I'm still on XEU which seems to be neglected with OTA's - though since the BTU csc has XEU, you can flash new firmware without losing data by using the home_CSC that comes with the new package...

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

My Spark sourced S7E showed the update about 10am this morning. All updated and going well. UI improvements are good tweaks. No issues with any apps failing to run either. So far so good.
