Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow stock firmwares have begun to roll out. If you are rooted or need to upgrade manually (using ODIN and stock firmware, follow our unroot directions), you can grab these stock firmwares yourself and flash. Please see updated Marshmallow stock firmwares on our Galaxy S6 Edge stock firmwares. If you are rooting and installing custom ROMs, it may be a good idea to always have the original copy of the stock firmware for your model of Galaxy S6 Edge handy just in case something goes wrong (that way it will save you time to restore your phone). Also, rooting the Marshmallow stock firmwares can be seen here.

For those of you who are rooted or didn’t receive the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update on your Galaxy S6 SM-G920F model, you can update manually using ODIN and stock firmware (see our unroot guide here).
We’ve updated with new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow stock firmwares on our Galaxy S6 Stock Firmwares page.
For those of you who want to root your Sprint Galaxy S6 SM-G925P, we have good news for you, TWRP recovery (that works) is available now, you can grab it on our Galaxy S6 Edge TWRP Recovery page.
This is actually TWRP recovery for the Chinese SM-G9250 model but developers and users have confirmed it works fine on the Sprint Galaxy S6 SM-G925P. Previous TWRP recovery for other variants for some reason caused problems but this TWRP should get you up and rooted easily along with ability to backup, restore, and install custom ROMs. So, definitely give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know how it goes for you!
For those of you with an AT&T SM-G920A/SM-925A or Verizon SM-G920V/SM-G925V, you may be happy to hear that there is a root method that may work soon called “PingPongRoot” on XDA. This is still work in progress but have been confirmed to work on many S6 models including SM-G920F, SM-G920I, SM-G9200, SM-G920P, SM-G920T, and many more.
For those of you looking for Galaxy S6 Edge stock firmwares, we have added most of SM-G925F European and SM-G925I South American stock firmwares to our S6 Edge Stock Firmware page. If you see any country firmware missing, don’t worry as we are working around the clock to update them all but you should find most of them available now. Also, if you do not see a firmware for your country, you can also use any other country firmware so long as your model number matches. For example, you can use Germany SM-G925F firmware if you have Spain SM-G925F. Since all of the firmwares support all languages, you should have no problems as long as you change the language after installing them.
For those of you who have been waiting for Sprint or Korean Galaxy S6 Edge stock firmwares, we have good news, you can grab them now on our S6 Edge Stock Firmwares page.
Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge model number is SM-G925P, these are 100% stock firmwares that will allow you to unroot/recover your Sprint S6 Edge completely back to stock.
For those of you waiting for T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925T stock firmware, it’s finally here!
What will this allow us to do? You will be able to easily unroot back to original stock firmware in case something goes wrong such as soft-bricking(where your device turns on but in a bootloop). Not only that, you will also be able to extract the stock recovery and re-install if you ever want to re-enable OTA updates on a rooted S6 Edge.
For those of you with Galaxy S6 SM-G920F or SM-G920I, we have been constantly adding stock firmwares for it on our Galaxy S6 stock firmware page.
We are still adding more stock firmwares but there should be plenty enough to work with right now. Also, you can cross-country flash another country firmware so long as you have the same model number. For example, if you have SM-G920F German model, you can also flash the France SM-G920F firmware. Now, so long as the country firmware you are using now doesn’t include country-specific apps (such as carrier bloatware), you should be fine. If you absolutely need a Galaxy S6 stock firmware for your country, shoot me an e-mail at zedomax [at] gmail dot com and we will get your firmware uploaded first.
For those of you wondering whether the KNOX security flag can be reset or not on the Galaxy S6 with root, it is not possible. At least not yet but if you are going to root your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, you may want to know that currently there’s no known method to reset the KNOX counter.
