Sprint is launching the new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OTA Update for all of their Galaxy Note 4 devices. In this article we have described the method to learn the process of installing it. These updates are being released in various phases. It’s a great news for all those who have modified their Sprint Note 4 OS. The phone can now be restored to 100% stock Android firmware.
This guide should be used only for Sprint Galaxy Note 4 devices and avoid using this for any other phone.
Verify the device model number: Go to Settings> About Phone, and make sure that the SM – N910P version is displayed.
Now, download the Samsung USB Drivers (link here).
Install the downloaded Samsung USB drivers on your PC.
For the installation of new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow file you will have to use a suitable flashing tool named ODIN.
Enable the USB Debugging option from Developer Option menu.
If the Developer Options menu is not listed there, you will need to display this menu from Settings-> About Phone and there tap 7 times on the Build Number area.
Make a full backup of your important data and save them outside of your device. (In the SD-card or PC).
If your device is a rooted one, the root access will be revoked after you flash this stock ROM.
If on your device is running a custom Recovery tool this will be replaced with a stock one.
Note: 1 This stock ROM can be installed over custom ROMs too. After the installation of the Stock ROMs over the custom ROM, to boot in normal mode a factory reset is necessary. The Factory Reset process wipes clean the system partition of your device and will delete the installed custom ROM totally.
