No.

TGY doesn't use the N950F Note 8, the Chinese / HK variant is sold there with the N9500 model number.

Just got it yesterday and also turned it onto this this morning. The OTA's on my S7 Active over on AT&T completely and eventually thrashed my phone and was eventually unusable. So I'm waiting.

:good:

I would like to flash a Swisscom (SWC Vodafon-Multi-CSC) to this OXM version. Which of the two CSC file should I use in this case? And do I understand it correctly, that if I use my German (O2) sim card while doing this, it should select DBT as the new CSC?

You can't use SWC and OXM at the same time, you'll have to switch to the OVF firmware.

N950FXXU1AQI1 / N950FOVF1AQI1 / N950FXXU1AQHB / N950FXXU1AQI1 would be the latest firmware for the SWC CSC that you can flash over your current firmware. It'll include CSC and HOME_CSC. Do NOT use HOME_CSC when switching from OXM to OVF, you'll have to choose the normal CSC file, which will wipe your phone.
However, this would be if you had a Vodafone SIM card, not sure why you're doing it with an O2 SIM card.

The latest DBT firmware can be found using Updato or SamFirm.
