I have tried numerous times to updated my S7 Edge with the newest patch, and I always get an unspecified Error Message. No number, no further explanation.
I have tried to boot into the recovery menu and wipe the partition cache as suggested here https://www.itechify.com/2017/02/22/samsung-galaxy-s7-software-update-failed-fixed/#:~:text=Press%20.... but it didn't change the outcome.
Solved! Go to Solution.
No, I haven't. I just checked it out, seems like this is to copy my content from my phone to my PC. How would this help me avoid the system update error? Thanks!
@PantaRheia: It is sometimes possible to complete an available update via Smart Switch on your home computer, if you're having trouble with the over-the-air option on your phone. On the Smart Switch PC/Mac home screen, can you see a prompt to install an update next to your device details?
It actually did work! It wasn't all without problems, though - as I encountered an error at first as well and had to do an emergency recovery, but after that it would let me run the update. THANK YOU!
