Android 5.1.1 firmware uploaded for the Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F)
Yesterday, an Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update appeared for download in France for the Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F), but as with all update roll-outs it can take some time to get around to everyone. Fortunately, the firmware files have now been nabbed and uploaded online for everyone to download.
Importantly, the Galaxy S6 SM-G920F is the international model of Samsung’s latest flagship, meaning that it is deployed much further afield than just France. Chances are if you’re anywhere in Europe that this is the model you’re using. If you want to check, head on over to settings > about phone > hardware info and look up the model number.
If it’s a match for SM-G920F and you haven’t seen the update appear over-the-air or through Samsung’s Kies yet, then you can download the official firmware from SamMobile to flash on your handset yourself. To install the update you’ll need to use Odin and you can find the necessary instructions on the download page. Other models won’t be compatible with this update and will probably end up caught in a boot loop, so avoid flashing firmware designed for different models of the same handset.
If you don’t want to mess around with manually installing firmware, just sit tight. An OTA update notification should be heading your way in the near future.
