    Galaxy S6 Active SM-G890A AT&T device is getting official Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update version G890AUCU3CPE3. Many people are struggling to get this update because of various reasons and hence here is a very simple Step By Step guide to update the G890AUCU3CPE3 Marshmallow Update Manually on the Galaxy S6 Active SM-G890A AT&T. Just grab the Firmware update from the Downloads section and then follow the update process.

    This guide is divided into various parts depending on your current firmware version. See the updates that has been released from older to latest order for Galaxy S6 Active SM-G890A AT&T:
    v1 – 5.0.2 – G890AUCU2AOF3
    v2 – 5.0.2 – G890AUCU2AU2AOF4
    v3 – 5.1.1 – G890AUCU3BOJE
    v4 – 5.1.1 – G890AUCU3BPB3 or G890AUCS3BPCG
    v5 – 6.0.1 – G890AUCU4CPF1

    IMPORTANT:
    You have to update the firmware incrementally meaning if you’re on v2 – G890AUCU2AU2AOF4 you can’t go straight to v5. You have to go to v3, then v4 and finally upgrade to v5. The same holds true for other versions too.
    DISCLAIMER:
    Manually updating the firmware WILL WIPE EVERYTHING on your phone. Make sure you do a backup using a synchronization application or using Samsung Smart Switch or if you have TWRP installed then you can take a NANDROID backup using the TWRP itself. Make sure you do the updates incrementally. As far as I know this has worked for everyone but still I am not responsible if anything goes wrong by following this guide. I can assure you that I will try to help you out as far as possible.

    Hi Dawid, I have updated the v4 to v5 link which will update your phone to G890AUCU3CPE3 build number.

    But after that there are few more updates, which I will be updating as soon as the links are available. You can keep an eye on this thread for the update.
