in preparation for nougat, is it better to flash rom using odin or is ota update just as good? (in computers it's always better to clean install vs upgrade OS). Secondly, is it at all possible to flash a locked bl phone like the TMO S7 using odin? if it is possible using download mode will this flip the warranty flag by flashing even if flashing the official ROM?

thanks!

Ota is fine. Alot of folks do full wipes because you used to have to or you would get a whole lot of problems. I still personally do a full wipe and clean install but you can most likely get away with a dalvik and cache wipe after install.

You can OdIn any signed Rom. So any factory samsung Rom can be flashed without flagging anything. That's how a lot of folks are running the U firmware.

Just as I thought it will remove the beta feedback app!

UPDATE: Smart Switch is also no longer showing MM as an update! So a initialization will take you to Factory N!

That's great, glad i don't have to see no more trolls in the beta community app rick rolling and asking for official nougat firmware. 😉👌
