In this post, you will be able to update your Galaxy S10 model number SM-G973F to XXU3ASH6 Android 9.0 Pie. This update comes with August 2019 security patches along with several bug fixes. But keep in mind that XXU3ASH6 Android 9.0 Pie Official Firmware is only for S10 with model number SM-G973F. This guide will help you to upgrade your device manually using Odin Flash tool in case you are not able to update it using OTA auto-update. So, read ahead, we have all the download links for necessary tools along with the firmware files.
The Galaxy S10 is the 10th-anniversary phone of S flagship line up. This phone comes with Samsung OneUI v1.1 operating system, which is based on Android 9.0 Pie. Samsung’s S series devices are the first to receive OneUI software upgrades, though the OEM has made the software available to older devices like S9, and Note 9.
The mechanics of One UI Android Pie for Galaxy S10 are intact. You can choose several home screen styles, easily access the notification shades, and control every side of the theme.
So before proceeding to the tutorial below, I would like to make sure to confirm your mobile variant for the compatibility of this firmware. Check out below:

The guide is ahead below! Please make sure to read each step carefully so that you don’t get stuck in the middle of the tutorial and loss of some data. We won’t be responsible for that.
Why manual update via Odin?
Manual installation of Samsung stock firmware is required for the following reasons:
- Bricked device: In case, your Galaxy S10 SM-G973F has been bricked while trying any custom ROM or mods, you can manually update your phone to recover and get back to stock position.
- OTA problem: If you aren’t getting direct OTA from Samsung due to carrier or region problem, you can download Samsung stock firmware and flash it to your phone using Odin tool.
- Rooted device: Rooting opens the window to customize your Android phone. But sometimes, this root status can break the OTA links. That’s why you might not be able to update your phone directly.
- Custom ROM: If you had installed any custom ROM like LineageOS, it is inevitable that there is no way to get official OTA. You need to flash the PDA and other files using Odin to get back to stock ROM.
- Bootloop: Facing bootloop issues due to some root apps or some Xposed modules? Manual update will help you!
