Samsung has not released an official list yet, but online sources say that they know which devices from this OEM get an upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow next year.

  • Galaxy S6 Edge +
  • Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Duos
  • Galaxy S5
  • Galaxy S5 Neo
  • Galaxy S5 LTE-A.


Considering that a new flagship will come out in 2016, it is nice to see older devices getting the update.


Apart from the aforementioned devices, some older or less-premium-looking devices will get an update to Marshmallow sometime next year. These include:


  • Galaxy Alpha
  • Galaxy Tab A
  • Galaxy Tab S2 8.0
  • Galaxy Tab S2 9.7.


Just in case you have one of these devices and are still thinking about upgrading or not, now you can make your decision based on the OTA news.


Of course, take everything with a grain of salt, because this is not official Samsung news. This could be totally or partially true. It can be completely bogus as well.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 gets official CyanogenMod support with a nightly

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 finally gets official CyanogenMod support. The new nightlies are destined to the WiFi version of the tablet with the codename klimtwifi.


Samsung Galaxy Tab 2


Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is already one year and a half old now, which means it will be easier to find on sale or on a good deal than the fresh flagships and devices of 2015. Usually, if you are willing to flash and run custom ROMs on a device for the first, second or n-th time, you may want to pick cheaper device where your financial investment is much lower.

You may as well be tired of TouchWiz, which makes this nightly all the more appealing. You can download TWRP while you’re at it, it will help you a lot. You can find the nightly link in the source link.

Cyanogen Mod 11 ROM support for Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is getting Cyanogen Mod 11 ROM support! Even if some may not like the Samsung tablets because of their faux leather or physical home buttons, they still get love for their awesome specs. One of the best features of the Tab Pro series is the screen resolution, no less than 2560x1600p, and if you love your tablet but would love it even more if it didn’t have Samsung’s skin, you’re in luck, as the devs at CyanogenMod now support the Pro 10.1 tab.

The nightlies are available for the 8.4 and 10.1 tablets, allowing AOSP software with updates to be tried by zealous tinkerers. The Galaxy Note Pro and the 12.2” Tab Pro are still waiting for their fixes and are not officially supported yet.

These ROMs are available only for the Wi Fi versions of the devices, which means the international LTE and carrier models are not supported yet.

The nightly build probably has a few kinks to sort out, which means you should start tinkering with care and you may just want to wait for the Tab Pro 10.1 to be added to the usual M snapshot builds. In case you really want to try this nightly, don’t forget the Gapps package.
