The Vendor security patch level on my Samsung Galaxy S7 is February 1, 2019, which Trust considers to be out of date. Does anyone know if there is a more recent patch available and if so how to install it?
Samsung supports their phones only for 2 years, so it’s probably the last vendor security update.
This assumption does not apply to the Galaxy S7 SM-G930F. Since 2019, Samsung has been releasing an update for the S7 “herolte” every three months on average - the last one in March 2020.
The last vendor security patch has the status March 1, 2020

Of course you can update it by flashing the current Baseband-/Bootloader firmware via Wind°ws Odin 3.14.4 or Linux/Mac Heimdall. The firmware is in a 4/5 part firmware file. Download the last available firmware version and extract this firmware file. Follow these instructions …
Thanks @archje. Do you know which country I should select if my country (Canada) is not listed? The phone does work with my carrier.
Hej @deepee, let’s start with your current working baseband version.
Go to > About phone > Android version > Baseband version :: G930FXX ???
Let me know, please…
Hi @archje. For me it’s actually About phone > Baseband version, but what I get is G930FXXS8ETC4. Thanks!
In Germany the baseband firmware G930FXXS8ETC4 is the current version of March 2020.
If everything works for you, I see no reason to change anything.
But now I ask myself, how did the above mentioned data come about? Screenshots could be helpful to clarify the question.
Samsung vendor policy is there :
Looks like Samsung Galaxy Sx are supported longer than other models but this is very random.
