Hey, @userZChGyq4sQl, it looks like you are running the unlocked model of your device. The most current Baseband version for this device is N950U1UEU1AQI5.

 

If you are unable to perform updates on your phone with Smart Switch, you will need to reach out to your regional support so that they can help you get access to all the updates necessary.

Good afternoon @userZChGyq4sQl

 

If you aren't too far be hind you can use Samsung Smart Switch, found here, to update your phone. However if your phone is too far out of date, those updates would have to be forced onto your phone by the carrier, which I am sure is not possible in China.

Certainly, could you please share your baseband version, as found in Settings>About Device? Additionally if you install Smart Switch onto your computer, run the program and then connect your phone to the computer the program should recognize your phone automatically. Then if it doesn't prompt you saying that an update is available, it won't be able to update your phone.

I can see that you are behind on those updates, likely behind enough that you would not be able to update with Smart Switch. The only way to get that device updated would be to get those updates pushed to you by AT&T. I know that really isn't an option where you are located.

Even though my mobile is from AT&T the firmware it is running on is not the AT&T one. It is the unlocked one. I think you would have noticed this by checking baseband version and also my csc code XAA. So i should be far behind or not according to that unlocked firmware schedules right? Please check and reply.
