This isn't much of a question more is it a vent of frustration towards Samsung. I am still on the July Security Policy despite Samsung claiming Monthly Security Updates. When OEM's refuse to Update their devices on time or out right at all this is when fragmentation becomes a big deal. Monthly should mean Monthly Until the end of life. No exceptions.

Thoughts?

then just update it manualy:

https://www.sammobile.com/samsung/ga...S3CSH2/286019/

you can also use samfirm tool 0.3.6 or frija app to download it with ure pc since that web site has trash speeds and flash it using odin. but be sure ure pc has samsung android drivers before using odin.

i believe you could also use samsung smart switch software to check for an update and flash it too.

so as you can see you can just update the device yourself instead of waiting. read and search xda for any of the tools and ways to use them aforementioned.

I was hoping to do that however I checked on there for mine. My product code is XSP which is the Singapore Version and the latest one is June 1st which im already on. If I were to flash a different region's firmware could I just use Home CSC to keep XSP? Thanks for the help

you can probably skip it all together. but your csc is the carrier code. if the phone is not carrier tied then you should either use the link i sent which is multi csc and would probably contain your sim CSC or find out the carrier code matching your carrier/sim.

read up on samsung and CSC for more details.

Yes. It won't change your product code and wipe your device. Rest assured.

well it will if he chooses csc.md5 over home_csc.md5

on an other note id suggest OP to flash BTU firmware as that is acualy a sales code(europe multi csc) associated to an actual firmware.

i have the same model but i believe it's something to do with the region instead of the carrier.

In comparison withe the firmware for both SG and PH, PH received 2 updates from July (CSF9 and CSG3) as compared to SG which only received one (CSF9).

Yeah, I think ill just wait it out because flashing over a security patch seems like a nuclear option. Hopefully in arrives in the coming weeks. Thanks for the help and information though everyone I appreciate it.
