I've read at numerous online points today that officially Marshmallow is rolling out globally for Galaxy S6 devices starting today, Feb 15th. I've checked the Schedule for Fido, but still no change/update. Any word about when this will happen? http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/samsung-galaxy-s6-android-6-0-marshmallow-rolled-out-globally-all-compatibl...
Solved! Go to Solution.
Quick update, Everything works well, the network was on edge so i had to go in the network setting and choose fido again. LTE is back. Sooo Volte doesn't work ill have to figure out why and how to reconfigure it. Fido if you read this make your magic happen, don't tell us its the update issue bla bla cause it's not true. Guys not talking about Fido IT's btw, if you know the answer let me know.
Sooo Fido. It's pretty much the middle of August now and we still don't have an update for the S6. I would check the update schedule as suggested ad infinitum by the moderators, but seeing as how it states 'Coming Soon' for months on end, I wouldn't hold my breath. I wonder if there's any way I can contact Samsung to let them know how bad you are at selling/managing their products.
This stupid company will never listen to us or care about its customer. Every other carrier in canada has the update since around April.
However, I have my own trick that I use since last year and get the update when anyother carrier release it since all S6 and S6 edge in canada are the same exact model. You only trick smart switch momentarly that your phone is for different carrier and you will get the update from smart switch no root or xnox triger or anything and you will still get the update over the air when Fido ever release it (if that would ever happen lol)
I cant put the links (don't want my post unfairly deleted) so just google "Get Update from different carrier using SmartSwitch [Canadian]" my thread is on XDA.
Now i'm using Kodoo latest software and i'm loving it loving the wifi calling and awsome battery improvment
It is interesting that in the Android Upgrade OS schedule for the S6 it stated at one time that it was to be upgraded to Marshmallow in June and now we are in August with no upgrades and now it states coming soon. I recall when the upgrades for marshmallow first came out in the city and that Telus a couple of weeks into the release of the OS upgrade upgraded their phones. Why is it taking so long for a major provider such as Rogers/Fido to upgrade their phones. If Telus did it within weeks of the original release date of the upgrade with no issues on their end why can't our service provider. According to Samsung they are also preparing to release another OS update in the future hopefully S6 users will get the Marshmallow update before the new one is released.
In August patch there was critical security vulnerability so imagine how many vulnerabilities we have since we didn't receive any patches since last year. I highly recomend not using things like banking apps while fido has not provide us with update (if the will ever will, lets keep dreaming)
