    Samsung Galaxy S6 SM-G920F devices are getting official Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update version G920FXXS3DPF3. The version numbers may be different for different countries and different carriers. Here is a very simple Step By Step guide to update the Marshmallow Update Manually on the Samsung Galaxy S6 SM-G920F. Just grab the Firmware update using the SamFirm utility as explained in the below section and then follow the manual OTA update process to get the latest update.

    This update is now rolled out to the following countries and Carriers:

    • Saudi Arabia (STC)
    • Algeria
    • Tunisia
    • Iran
    • South Africa
    • Pakistan

    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. I am not at all responsible if anything happens to your phone as a consequence of following this guide but I can assure you that I will help you as far as possible to get you out of the problem (if something happens).

    Hi, I have a question. Recently my phone was updated to latest software 7.1 however i wish to return to marshmallow. This firmware that u have available, will it work for my country Trinidad and Tobago? What are the implications for installing a firmware not meant for your country?

    As long as the hardware specification is same for both the devices available in different countries, the FW should work fine.
