samsung galaxy s6 marshmallow update

recently, i bought a samsung galaxy s6 SM-G920F, from a similar offer to what microspot has this week.

not that i would require it, but i saw that android marshmallow update would be available for it since mid-february 2016.

unfortunately, mine has android 5.1.1 installed, and 'settings>about device>software update>update now' insists that all updates are installed. i wanted to try with kies (which i am not particularly fond of), but it would not either install on a windows 10 system, or it would tell me to use sidesync for this model, which seems to be for screen/mouse sharing.

anyone has information on the marshmallow update issue?

I think that Kies has been replaced with the Samsung Smart Switch app.

Download the the program to your PC:

When I plugged my phone in to the PC, Smart Switch notified me to download the Marshmallow update. No problem.

Re: samsung galaxy s6 marshmallow update

Kies is still the tool used by Samsung to, for example, re-load factory settings on a soft-bricked machine. When I did this a couple of weeks ago on my tablet (SM-T900) it also upgraded to the latest Android build officially available for it, which is 5.1.1 as it happens.

Oh and it seems that Kies actually works these days - I'd given up on it some years ago until this need arose.

Re: samsung galaxy s6 marshmallow update

I use Smart Switch for backing up my phone and applying software upgrades.

After downloading Smart Switch to your PC the software update notice should appear when your phone is plugged into your PC.

If not, click 'More' in the top right corner, Preferences, Software Update.
