Re: Marshmallow for Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge

Probably not. Mine is red and it's there to show power save is enabled.

Re: Marshmallow for Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge

I'm going to assume this update is over Samsung Kies like previous ones.

Re: Marshmallow for Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge

Hi all.

 

I have an S6 from O2 (I suspect locked to O2 as well) and want to get root like I have with all my other samsung phones but I have a few apps that need the knox to be valid for it to use the fingerprint reader.

 

When I first powered it up like a total noob I let the OTA update run taking me to version 6.0.1

 

Current build number is now MMB29K.G920FXXS4DPG2

Baseband version G920FXXS4DPG1

Kernel version 3.10.61-7884513

Knox version 2.6

Android security patch level 1 July 2016

 

I have already found out that the ping-pong root method does not work, I suspect that is due to me being a plumb and running the update.

 

My question is.... If I get the earlier firmware from sammy and flash that with Odin is that going to trip knox?

 

Any help and advice you could give would be great.

 

Thanks.

 

Stu.

Yes any downgrade of firmware will trip know.
