Samsung is currently rolling out the latest October 2019 security patch for its low-mid range smartphone the Galaxy A30. This software update is based on Android 9.0 Pie. The update is currently available in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other countries with build number A305FNXXU2ASJ2. The software is being pushed over-the-air to the Galaxy A30 users.
Usually, the OTA should reach your device in the specific regions automatically. However, you can also manually perform the update. Manually in the sense, you have to download the firmware file which packs the October security patch. Then manually you have to flash or sideload this firmware package on your phone to upgrade.
Does it sound like rocket science.? Don’t worry. Performing a manual installation is not difficult at all. In fact, we have put up the download link for the firmware file below as well as an installation guide. So, that will help you install the A305FNXXU2ASJ2 update on Galaxy A30. Now, read on the post to know how to do it.
Downloading OTA Manually
As we said, this update is moving over-the-air. Basically, it’s an automatic process. However, there are certain factors like tele-carrier, the geographical location which affect how sooner or later these updates reach the user. So, when some people in the same region get the update early on their phone, a few others don’t receive the software even after days or weeks pass after its release. Also, the OEM sometimes roll the update incrementally. This means only some of the users of the particular device will receive the update. However, that does not mean you are not eligible to get the software. Any user can manually capture the OTA.
So, just in case you belong to those sections of users with minimal know-how of smartphone updates and may not have the idea to perform a manual software update, then just follow the simple process we have outlined below.
Open your phone Settings App > Go to System > Tap on System Updates. Now you may see an option called Check for Updates. Tap on it. Now, if the update is available for our device, you will see the new update dialog with software details and changelog which will prompt you to download it.
We always recommend using Wi-Fi for faster software download. Also, make sure that your Galaxy A30 has a minimum of 50% battery charge before you perform the update download and installation.
