I recently brought a samsung 7 edge and while happy with the hardware notice it is still running android 6.  I understand that the NZ version has been upgraded to 7.


There seems to be a huge number of roms out there and I really don't want to brick it.  


Would anyone be able to give some step by step instructions on how to upgrade it?


Model number sm -g935f on 2 degrees.  Phone says it is from United Arab Emirates

Go to:


Search your model (SM-G935F)


Filter by Region: New Zealand (NZC) will give you 2Degrees firmware.


Download & run the update tool.




This will bring your phone on the to 2Degrees firmware, Including any extra branding they include (if any)


Edit: you'll need to use odin ( to flash the firmware :)
