Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Marshmallow Update Takes The Back Seat
Nov 19 2015
Xposed Framework is a utility that lets you make system-level changes to an Android device. The new model provides support for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Other companies like HTC and LG have followed suit. These include the Galaxy A8, Galaxy A7, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A3, Galaxy E7 and the Galaxy E5.
Whenever Google releases a new version of Android, it's always a waiting game for anyone who doesn't own a Nexus device. According to ASUS, the next smartphone that'll be getting an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is the ZenFone 2.
Phone Arena has provided instructions on how to install the Xposed framework on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It's not clear how early of a build it is. The new firmware delivers many bug fixes for the S5 Active together with a feature known as Android for Work. However, there is no time frame specified in the leaked update until now. Updates for these models will be released in February 2016.
To start with, the company will update the first OnePlus One and OnePlus 2.
Samsung may not have started pushing Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its Galaxy devices, however, a leaked list claims it should start next month. Which means you probably shouldn't expect to see Android 6.0 officially running on any of these devices in 2015. This is one reason why manufacturers like Samsung delay the rollout of Android. These carriers typically announce updates weeks in advance so their silence is telling.
As many of you will be able to notice, Samsung has done quite a lot of tweaking to its proprietary user interface.
Mobile carriers are also making their announcements so we know that the "flufiness" is out there.
According to TMO News, the System Update that Danon performed should have installed the N920TUVU2COJ5 software version.
These estimations are also backed up by an alleged Samsung Android 6.0 Marshmallow update roadmap that surfaced online a couple of days ago. Updates must pass internal testing at Samsung and they must pass internal testing at carriers as well. This takes time.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is also upgradable to Android Lollipop 5.1.1 now.
