Samsung update tracking site

[ Edited ]

https://live.samsung-updates.com/index.php?device=none

 

This tracks the versions of the firmware that are live on Samsung's update service, select your phone from the drop down on the top right.

 

If you bought your phone through O2 it'll be running the operator specific version of the firmware and the code for this is O2U

 

If you bought your phone SIM free or elsewhere it maybe running the standard version of the firmware and the code for UK handsets is BTU.

 

Be aware that rollouts are often staggered to ensure the service doesn't get overloaded so it might not download immediately even if it shows as available on that site.

Current tech used:
Samsung A40 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 2 76 Mbps Down/18 Mbps up (upgraded for homeworking),
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)

Nice one @techtamer.
Be useful if other manufacturers did something similar...

Re: Samsung update tracking site

I should stress it isn't an official Samsung site.

Re: Samsung update tracking site

Thanks.

I could be wrong, but looks like it is just a table format of the sammobile site info?

@BOSSGOGG 

 

You maybe right.

 

It's somewhat annoying the handset manufacturers don't output this information but then that's probably to do with their biggest customers being the service providers who either don't sign off on all updates or take ages to do so.

Re: Samsung update tracking site

It looks like the site may have crashed and burned as it's been displaying various error messages for some days now.

 

@MarjoDo you want to zap the thread?
