Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes to the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920C)!

When it rains, it pours. That might not be completely applicable here, but Samsung has started rolling out Android 6.0.1 for the Galaxy Note 5, soon after it announced the global rollout of the update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. The update is currently out in Cambodia (for the SM-N920C) with build number N920CXXU2BPB6; it’s available via Samsung Smart Switch and through our firmware section, and it should be going out to devices over the air.

We gave our readers an exclusive look at Marshmallow running on the Galaxy Note 5, and the final update shouldn’t be any different. Expect new features like Doze, Google Now on Tap, a new Samsung browser with ad-blocking support, and a few other things in addition to various interface changes (including a new look for the status bar and notification area). Performance should see a small boost as well, though you’re unlikely to notice considering the Note 5 never was a slow device.

Head over to the Settings » About device » Software update menu to manually grab the update if it hasn’t already shown up on your Note 5. As always, it will be a staged rollout so not everyone will get the update at the same time. If you’re the impatient kind, the full firmware is also available from our firmware database.

When exactly is it necessary to select the re-partition option in Odin. I think it should be choosen when flashing a firmware from another country or carrier. Right?

7 months 23 days ago

Hi Teaza.
Only use repartition if you have bricked the phone during a reflash gone wrong. Only happened me once on a note 4 and had to repartition and use a pit file when it bricked on me.

Installed the cam(cambodia) firmware. The sp02 function is not working now. But that to me is a minor issue. Will flash the xsg(united arab emirates) when released.
I did a cache partition reset and and factory reset before i flashed the rom and then restored via smart switch on pc. Phone seems more refined and smoother to run.

7 months 23 days ago

I did it like you except that I did not restore via smart switch. I don’t think that this has a positive effect. Or does it???

Hello guys update Android 6 failed really very pale colors Lollipop much better than Android 6 I think there is no new development in Android 6

This version does not have Heart rate, SpO2 and Stress sensors in S Health. If you are using these in your region, then do not flash this version. Hopefully Samsung releases this to all soon.

7 months 24 days ago

Heart rate measurement works fine here.

7 months 25 days ago

Wow I just noticed my S health app wont let me measure SpO2 and Stress. The heart rate sensor does work tho.

7 months 25 days ago

Hi. Thanks for the info. Can we not just install the S Health apk to get these functions back?

7 months 28 days ago

I have no problems with battery issues…working normally.


7 months 29 days ago

I don’t have any problem with the battery
I think there is somthing you’ve done wrong while flashing the rom
Try to reflash again the same rom and see what will happen

Seems that deep sleep works fine and battery drain also seems better now since I had two or three charging cycles. Will observe this within the next days.

7 months 29 days ago

Is it possible to downgrade ?? I have noticed some battery drain as well, but as always with new flash it could improve after few recharge cycles, the main issue is that I have ordered gear VR and would be with me in a week’s time, that would be troublesome.

Can we download lollipop and install it through Odin ?

7 months 29 days ago

You can. I have done it numerous times with my Note 10.1 2014 edition.

7 months 29 days ago

Is it possible to rollback? As I have installed it and there is issue with battery drain! Maybe it would take recharging cycles to adjust!

Secondly i ordered the gear VR and would be getting it in a week’s time and if it doesn’t work then trouble for me!

Can we rollback to lollipop?

7 months 29 days ago

feel like battery drains so fast.. :(

Battery drain is ridiculous on this rom. Never had such drain with any device ever. N920C XSG KNOX 0×0. Everything stock, auto brightness on middle, all but five apps on permanent optimization in smart manager.

8 months 9 hours ago
