Prerequisites

Install Android 7.0 Nougat Firmware on Galaxy A9 Pro SM-A910F (2016)

Follow the below instructions carefully to install the update:

  1. Extract the downloaded Odin Zip file on your PC.
  2. Unzip the firmware zip file you which you have downloaded from the downloads section above. You will get a file with .tar.md5 extension inside the extracted folder.
  3. Boot your Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro into the Download mode.
    • Turn off your phone.
    • Press and hold the Volume Down + Home + Power keys at the same time for 2-3 seconds till you see a warning screen.
    • Once you see the warning screen, release the keys and press the Volume Up key.
    • Done, you are now in download mode.
  4. In your PC, double-click on the odin.exe file and open it.
  5. Connect your phone to your computer via USB cable [official cable recommended].
  6. When your device is detected by Odin, the ID:COM port will be highlighted as in the below picture. 
  7. Next, click the AP button and add the firmware file to it. As the firmware files are typically large in size, it might take a while to add it. If Odin seems unresponsive, don’t worry. Wait for a while.
  8. After adding all files, make sure Odin’s screen looks like the one in the image below:Odin-3-v3.12.3
  9. After making sure everything is in place, click the ‘Start‘ button to start the installation.
  10. Wait for few minutes. When the firmware is installed, you will get ‘PASS!‘ message in Odin [refer below image] and your phone will reboot automatically. TWRP-Root-Galaxy-Note-8-Odin-Success
  11. You can now disconnect the phone from your PC.

Please note that the first boot will always take some time. Wait patiently before jumping to conclusions! 😉
