We weren’t positive what to make of a document that one fortunate T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 user on XDA won Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The tool it seems that misplaced baseband and IMEI knowledge which rendered it needless on a mobile community, a undeniable fact that a few pointed to in figuring out that this reputedly fortunate example used to be a trifling ROM flash long past flawed.
But destined to turn out that he did, actually, obtain the update over-the-air, the user is working with XDA members to deliver full system and partition dumps. This document way little at this time for any person who’s simply taking a look to flash their strategy to Marshmallow, however getting a system sell off lets in developers to start paintings on “Frankensteining” a ROM that may properly be flashed.
While we watch for additional details about the system sell off and what it would lend a hand the developers succeed in, right here are a few screenshots of the adjustments Samsung has reportedly made to the up to date Marshmallow-primarily based TouchWiz construct. Some early issues we will be able to see come with a flashier reboot menu, a very white notification pane, and the implementation of Android 6.0’s new permissions regulate within the digital camera app.
There are sure to be different delicate adjustments sprinkled all through, however with no complete take a look at the firmware we gained’t recognize what’s what till additional info is to be had.
So, what now? For people who are rooted and don’t thoughts flashing ROMs, any person is certain to be running on a ROM out of this. All you'll be able to do presently is keep an eye on this XDA thread the place discussions concerning the leak are ongoing. Those who aren’t prepared to flash can both wish to be as fortunate as this man used to be, or just wait till an offcial rollout occurs (which optimistically gained’t take lengthy now that T-Mobile turns out to have check builds in-hand).
