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.

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….

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

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
