    Want to upgrade to Android 7 from 5 which is the last update from my carrier (AT&T) for the S6. I found instructions which described downloading update via FOTA but I can't seem to find those updates.

    What I'm asking is can you find those updates and load them manually since my carrier never did? I found these instructions but where can I find those firmware updates? Here is what I found:

    Here is the current update: Android 7.0.1 Nougat

    The details

    Release date: April 5, 2018
    Android version: 7.0.1
    Security patch level (SPL): March 1, 2018
    Baseband version: G920AUCS7ERC1
    Build number: NRD90M.G920AUCS7ERC1
    Previous version required: G920AUCU7ERB1
    File size: 31.7MB

    The updates

    What's changing: Android device security updates



    Getting started
    You can download the update via Firmware Over the Air (FOTA).
    You must connect your device to Wi-Fi to download the update.
    Although there should be no impacts to settings or data, we recommend that you back up your media files to an SD card, a PC, or using a favorite application, prior to upgrading the software.
    To receive this software update, your device must be on baseband version G920AUCU7ERB1. If not, repeat the update process until you’ve installed baseband version G920AUCU7ERB1, and then you should be able to install the latest software update.
