Samsung starts Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates in Korea for Galaxy S6 and S6 edge!

Samsung has made us all wait quite a bit for the Marshmallow update and now it has finally released Android 6.0.1 for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge in South Korea. The release follows a brief beta test program in which users were allowed to sign up to test beta Marshmallow firmware. We’ve already posted a lot of images of all the interface changes and new features that are included in the Marshmallow update.

It has only released Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge today but it shouldn’t take too long for the update to arrive for the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 at least in South Korea. It’s unclear when Samsung is going to roll out the update for other markets. Given that it has started the rollout users in other markets may not have to wait for too long now.

I have the Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925K (Korean model, Olleh KT carrier version). The 6.0.1 firmware does appear in SamMobile’s Firmware page, but it is not available through FOTA or Smart Switch.

Korean media says the reason for stopping Marshmallow update is because of an error in Instagram app (as stated in here http://post.mk.co.kr/archives/24557 ). Apparently, Instagram is using some system files that Google has restricted, and this is causing crashes when scrolling. Samsung has contacted Instagram about this issue and will resume the update process when everything is solved.

Please update the article.

According to Samsung customer service, Instagram in Marshmellow do not working. Because Instagram uses file which google restricted, so scroll problem in Instagram app.
Samsung requested urgently Instagram to revice app. This is the end of samsung reply.
But many people think that there is serious problem stopping updating.

no more anger lie and not agan nothing Samsung expects to sell the galaxy s7, as this comes with marshmallow. then they do not suit them upgrade to hour as no difference between the opening and GS7 s6 galaxy if both are Android marshmallow, that’s the reason and point

Korean Galaxy S6 and edge was stopped updating just 6 hours after started. Because critical defects in its firmware, so few people got marshmellow. Revision firmware may be lounched in Feb.

I am tired of these slow updates, and korea gets it first, yet they are still slow over there compared to other phone companies that already have android 6.0.1

I have already moved over to the iphone 6s, which is so smooth and fast. Better luck with the S7, samsung….

Note 4 910f is definitely getting mashmellow in February.

This is good news as some developers in XDA will port this ROM

alastairgreen_Nexus

Why down-vote and let’s be frank as code can make things possible if you want it to succeed as porting can be a very hard job but it can allow some impatient users to enjoy Marshmallow with TouchWiz early

kuracpalac1

I really hope vodafone germany doesn’t wait too long to push this update to users since I can’t flash an unbranded rom on my 920F even though it doesn’t have sim lock

JacoboBlandonPineda

That’s because Vodafone devices have a locked bootloader that prevents any modifications to the software to be made. And I wouldn’t recommend you to mess up with it, since it can end up on misery and tears.

I’m in the same situation on a T-mobile in Croatia.. Will probably have to wait a month longer until they release branded firmware.
