Let’s begin with the ADB method first

ADB METHOD:

  1. Download SDK platform-tools from here: Download SDK Platform-Tools
  2. Extract them on your desktop.
  3. Inside the extracted folder put the update.zip
  4. Inside this folder, holding left shift, right-click the mouse and select “open command prompt here”. The command prompt will open.
  5. Shutdown the phone.
  6. Holding power + Bixby + volume up buttons, enter into recovery mode.
  7. Select “update via ADB”. (you scroll down using the volume buttons and select using the power button).
  8. Connect the phone to the PC using the original Samsung USB cable.
  9. In the command prompt run the following command: ./adb devices
  10. Wait to see that the daemon has started and that your device is found.
  11. If your device is found, run the following command: ./adb sideload update.zip

SD-CARD METHOD:

  • Download the bin file and rename it to update.zip (by going to file options in win10 you can select to view the file extensions. This makes the renaming process much easier and safer, and avoids renaming the file to update.zip.zip)
  • Copy it to the root directory of your SDcard.
  • Shut down your phone.
  • Hold simultaneously Power + Bixby + volume up buttons to get into stock recovery.
  • Using your volume keys navigate to “update via sd card” and press the power button to select it.
  • Again using volume keys navigate to the file “update.zip” and press the power button to select it.
  • The update will start. Leave it till it completes. It will take some time.
  • The phone will reboot by itself and load android.

When the update process starts, you will see a percentage of counting. First, it will verify, then patch, etc. Do not move the cable, disconnect the phone, or power off the PC. Once the process is completed (it takes some time) the phone will boot itself, update the apps and log into your home screen.
