    No its not. We want it to work right and be optimized with the phone. I didn't want the update to drain my battery or lag my phone. Glad they're doing it right.
    I think the point was that AOD should have worked with 3rd party apps on the S7/S7E out of the box on day 1. I agree. They half-assed it.

    I can't find the OTA for Sprint anywhere on the site. All I'm seeing are roms and stuff for rooting the phone. If someone found a link for the OTA for Sprint can you please post the link? XDA is one mess of a site...

    There's got to be more to it then that from what I been seeing on YouTube... If something goes wrong with the phone then you are screwed...
    Considering that I've done it, I know there's not more to it. Also, I'm well versed in rooting and romming as I used to do it all the time so I'm not worried about getting screwed. Never bricked a phone and I doubt I'll start now.

    Don't disagree. But we had that discussion way back in March lol. For Note 7 transplants, I'm glad it's coming for Nogurt. Makes the update all the more interesting.

    The only available update.zip file is for VZW. You may be able to flash the VZW bootloader on your Sprint phone via ODIN first and then do the update. No guarantees it'll work but that's how a AT&T customer got the beta to install on his phone.

    If you feel uncomfortable with ODIN and have reservations that this can screw up your phone then don't try it. But for VZW users this is a pretty brainless procedure.

    Hint: Look for a thread called "Galaxy Beta" in the Verizon Samsung S7 Edge forum.

    I actually just did it, It really is that easy. Just download it to your SD card and install from there.

    Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this , but since update my write speeds to sd card have doubled. S7e was apparently capped at 34mb/s which upon testing was about right. Im now getting 70+ write speeds which is better than I got on note 7. Which was apparently capped at about 66mb/s . I'm using 64gb pro+ Samsung sd card.

    Does anyone have a smart watch that works with the beta? I'm planning to get the gear S3 soon after launch but I'll wait a while if it's confirmed that it won't work with the beta.
    LG G Watch R and LG Urbane work great

    Beats me why anyone would want to play the guinea pig for a large corporation ... .

    Especially after Samsungs recent fxxx ups.

    Can't they 'test' it themselves? Samsung must have at least three employees in the phone department.
    They do this to get more testers. They don't have thousands of testers in house

    If I install the Verizon beta, will there be any issues with installing the future "approved" version? I would hate to have to go back to a factory reset to install the "legit" version.

    From what I was reading on xda you will still be able to get the official ota.

    You would revert back to the latest stock MM firmware via Odin and take the legitimate OTA if there are any issues, which I don't really foresee since the update file is signed. The only issue that installing an "illegimate" beta is that you're not officially registered to provide and read feedback in the official beta forum. It's always recommended to do a factory restore after a major upgraded such as this beta and when the official Android 7.0 OTA gets installed so you'll be doing them anyway.

    I'm on Verizon and registered for the beta. My question is do I need to have my sim card installed to download the update? My sim is still in my note 7. When I go to system updates on my s7 edge it says service unavailable.

    Android Wear works better now than it ever did. Was a major battery hog in the early days.

    Hi guys the beta for tmobile users is suppose to be available today. But all I see when I go into the app is server error please try later.

    Has anyone received it?

    Or at what time do you think it will be made available?

    On the day it came out in the UK, the beta app started working in the afternoon, around 1430 if I remember correctly and the OTA started being released around 2300
