Hello everyone. I have just got my Samsung A800F upgraded to Marshmallow OTA two days back and have already started regretting it. The system has slowed down, apps lag, dialier lags etc. Most of the time, when the phone is switched on ‘no sim’/’no service’ message is received and it takes removing and reinstalling the sim card a number of times before the network is latched. Even flashing with firmware from this site has not helped resolve this. Besides, I even tried to clean cache through Vol up+Home+Power button method and still there is no change in the issues. The… Read more »

I did all tricks of hard reset, downgrading to 5.1.1 and then again upgrading to 6.0.1 the problem persisted. I sent the mobile to Samsung Customer Service and they reverted with upgraded software 6.0.1. Now there is no problem of network however, unlike in 5.1.1 the fingerprint is not always prompted for – most of the time it asks for pin and, overall the speed has reduced- for e.g. in 5.1.1 as soon as you start typing names in contact search the names get displayed in search screen results below while in 6.0.1 it takes 10-15 seconds for the results… Read more »

It’s said Indian firmware is good to try. You can test it by upgrading thru Odin. If it’s still get issue then back to 5.1.1 will be the best choice while waiting yr country firmware fix the bug.

I’m just curious so can I download the 6.0.1 Indian firmware for my phone from the Philippines, and will I be able to tailor the OS to be similar to the Philippines one, or will my phone be stuck in a bootloop? Thanks! 🙂

Just flash it via ODIN but make it sure that your baseband is compatible with the update or else the update will fail in ODIN

After trying to extract the firmware from the .zip file, it says it’s corrupt (! C:XXA800FXXU1BPF5_A800FODD1BPF4_INS.zip: The archive is corrupt), but the zip proceed with the extracting process, is it normal? Should I go on and try to update my phone firmware anyway? Thanks!

Alpha is almost 2 years old device shipped with 4.4.4. A8 is only 1 year old phone shipped with 5.1.1. So don’t expect alpha to be updated to mashmallow when A8 gets it. Be realistic!

But you don’t know this, Alpha is a more premium and more powerful device than A8. So mm update is usual and neccessary for Alpha.
