Team Android has reported that the owners of the Galaxy Note 4 phablet are able to update their devices to the latest Android version via ResurrectionRemix ROM, which is compatible with the LTE models from Europe, with the model number N910F. The custom ROM brings lockscreen shortcuts, the Dark Material Theme, quick unlock functionality and other features from CyanogenMod13. Initially, the Note 4 ran on Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS and a few days ago, it was updated to 5.1.1 Lollipop, so it’s not sure when the 6.0 Marshmallow will be available for it.
Older Samsung flagships such as the Galaxy S3 can install custom Android ROMs and AICP ROM is the best recommendation, as it’s based on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update and it comes with a vanilla AOSP interface and lots of tweaks and improvements, which make it very stable. The Galaxy S3 was released back in 2012 and it ran on Android v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, and the latest supported version is Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
The Nexus 7 (2013) tablet came loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box and now it’s upgradable to 6.0 Marshmallow. However, the users can opt for the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow personalized firmware called BlissROM. This custom ROM allows the users to personalize the user interface the way the want, being able to change the navigation bar and animations.
Before installing the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update on any of the three aforementioned devices, the users should know that the Note 4, Galaxy S3 or Nexus 7 must be rooted. Also, the devices should have at least 80 percent battery left, because any interruption could brick them. Also, the users will need to backup important data using a special recovery tool such as ClockWorkMod or TWRP, as Custom ROM experts recommend, because during the installation process, the devices will be wiped and everything will be lost.
The official Android Marshmallow update came with new features such as Doze, which “automatically puts it into a sleep state to increase your standby battery life”, Now On Tap, app permissions etc.
