The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software update is rolled out by Rogers for all Galaxy Note Edge N915W8 Canada users.
Check the info in this post in order to learn how to manually complete the update.
The Android 6.0.1 official update is being rolled out in stages, which means that not all Rogers Galaxy Note Edge users are getting the update at the same time as some other lucky users.
Also, this guide is great for those that are looking to restore their devices to stock firmware from custom ROMs.
Before starting the installation process you can check the following guidelines:
- this guide is destined for the Roger Canadian Samsung Galaxy Note Edge N915W8 users.
– check your device’s model number under Settings> About Phone and make sure that the SM – N915W8 version is listed there.
- do not try to update any other different devices with tthe files you find in this post.
- download Samsung USB drivers from here.
– install the usb drivers on your computer.
- for the update you will have to use Odin tool.
– for Odin to detect your phone you need to install the usb drives above and to enable the USB Debugging option from Developer Options menu.
- if you can’t find the Developer Options you will need to unhide it first: go to Settings> About Phone and tap 7 times on the Build Number section.
– return to Settings, find Developer Options, open and enable it; find USB Debugging and enable it, too.
- if your Note Edge Rogers device is rooted, but it still runs a stock firmware, then you will only lose the root access after the update is done.
– if any custom Recovery was previously installed on your device, then you will see it replaced with a stock Recovery image.
- you can flash the update over a custom ROM, too, but a ‘factory reset’ is mandatory after the update is done.
– the ‘factory reset’ process wipes clean the system partition, but it won’t delete any data from internal storage of your device.
– factory resetting the phone will not delete any data from internal storage of your device.
– the ‘factory reset’ process steps are listed at the end of this post.
- if your phone runs 100% stock Android firmware, then you can continue to the next part of this post right now.
- this guide is destined to be used by advanced users only, as we cannot be blamed in case you brick the phone nor in case you lose any important data in the process.
- check the battery charge level of your device, there has to be 50% charge left before the phone powers off completely.
- read the whole post and do not skip any steps.
