Go find THL firmware and odin flash it. U will get latest update + nothing broken. Example nfc singtel sim still work as normal and samsung pay sg too

haha Samsung SG yaya papaya la, just tkss give some excuses & then can take their own sweet time? Like someone mentioned earlier, they shouldn't be delaying those security patches though.

Well. We can only share you all these reasons and explain it to the best we can ask told by Samsung SG themselves to the Samsung Connections group. You can choose to accept it or not. Either way this is the process for a Long time already. Agreed but then again it is not like we have a choice. It better than releasing broken FW out there.

Security updates really as dangerous as it sounds, as Long as you donít expose your device to apps downloaded from outside the Google Play Store or use Public Wifi for sensitive matter you have won half the fight.
yes yes appreciate all the sharings here.
Everyone uses their devices differently, when a security patch is available, Samsung should release it asap.

Odin flashed no need root or wont be root. Just remember to use home csc to retain current csc setting which is xsp or your carrier csc

Hi, how you maintain current csc? *#272*imei phone#?

or you extract it out from older firmware?

You have to download the firmware and flash home_csc file.

Just a major caveat here, once you flash a foreign firmware and you accidentally forget to preserve home csc, your csc will immediately change to the one which the foreign firmware supports and you will lose local nfc and Samsung pay support, also vowifi and volte.

The only way to revert is to go service centre..

my battery has aged badly, currently with only 85% of original capacity, do you think I can ask for a replacement under warranty ?

What app are you using to check your battery health?
