The official Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware update is now live for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The new update features TouchWiz improvements, new functions, better battery life, App Standby, Applications Permissions controls, and tons of other changes and tweaks that should improve the overall performance of your device. Unfortunately, the Android Marshmallow update for the Philippines based users is yet to be released.
If you’re looking to update your smartphone with the new firmware without waiting for the OTA files, then we can do it manually using firmware from other country. Don’t worry, there are users who already tried and their devices are working just fine.
This tutorial is for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910C only. Please check the model of your device under the Settings>About phone section.
Do it at your own risk. I’m not responsible for any bricked or damaged device while using this tutorial. Please follow the instructions carefully.
