With FOTA, can you skip a firmware version and upgrade to the subsequent version?

This would depend on the Samsung FOTA (B2C) server's policy for going to one version to another.

For example, let's say you wanted to upgrade from device firmware version A to C and skip version B. There are two options:

  • Update directly: If the FOTA server allows a direct update from version A to C, then only one firmware update is needed.
  • Intermediary update needed: If the FOTA server requires that version B be installed first, then two firmware updates are needed, from A to B, then from B to C, with a device reboot in between.

Note that even if you set the firmware version only once, the firmware version can be updated more than once.
