This is a good news for all the users worldwide because they are going to enjoy Android Marshmallow soon. But if you are from Cambodia you can install Touchwiz Marshmallow 6.0.1 right away on your Galaxy Note 5.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 comes with the build number N920CXXU2BPB6 and it can be installed through Odin flashtool. This is the easiest and safest way to install the firmware but you can install it either using Samsung Smart Switch, a program designed to capture OTA (over the air) updates and download and install them.
In this article we have covered only one way, using Odin because we think it’s the best way to install an official firmware on Samsung devices. Below you are going to find all the necessary files to update Galaxy Note 5 to Android 6.0.1 Touchwiz Marshmallow.
