Many of you probably heard that T-Mobile has begun rollin’ out Android 5.1.1 already to many T-Mobile S6 Edge SM-G925T users.
Well, one word of caution, the new Android 5.1.1 firmware locks your bootloaders. But this isn’t a permanent lock from what we are hearing, you may be able to unlock it.
But if you are rooted already, you don’t have to take the dangerous route anyways, just go ahead and flash stock ROM. I’ve been running this all day and Android 5.1.1 seems like it’s a bit faster but Antutu benchmarks tell a different story as I was only able to score around 50K. I am not exactly sure what’s going on but you can always backup your ROM and restore back to Android 5.0.2 if you don’t like it or if you have problems.
To install the Android 5.1.1 stock ROM, make sure to follow these instructions: (You can also watch the latter part of the video above as I walk you through TWRP recovery and installation.)
1. Flash the latest version of TWRP for Galaxy S6 Edge, grab it on our CWM/TWRP page. (or grab the IMG file here and flash with Flashify)
2. Reboot into TWRP Recovery(you can use Quick Boot app) and MAKE A BACKUP ROM!!!
