    The first thing that you got to do is making sure that all the Samsung USB drivers are installed on your computer. If they are not, the ODIN app would not recognize your device and the update cannot be completed. Since there is chance for data lose it would be better to create a backup of all the files saved on your device. From the Developer Options menu enable the USB debugging option. Since there is a probability for loss of data it is not advisable for entry level users to try this out. These are to be done by advanced users. If you face any difficulty during the update, seek expert opinion to prevent bricking your phone.

    Hello,

    Follow these steps:

    -->>Make sure your phone is fully charged

    -->>Backup all the things that are important to you because during update if things go wrong you will loose your personal data.

    -->>Load samsung kies (latest version) on your system.

    -->>You should have a good wifi connection

    -->>Connect your phone via usb and if a software update is available kies will automatically detect it and ask you that a higher version is avaialble do you want to update? just press yes and continue.

    -->>Do not try and do a over the air update as most of the time the update fails and might damage your phone.

    Thanks
