Ah sorry, your dont have the 'plus'. right.

 

 

 

Yeah, standard S6 and S6 Edge hasnt been released yet it seems, only Plus.

 



Sadly I only have the standard S6.

 

 

 

It'll be my last Samsung though.. Kicking myself for not getting a nexus...

 

 

 

 

 

if you have the G920I then you can flash the Indian version I listed on the last page easily enough. I'm still running it and doing well.

 

 

 

Samsung has always been like this so if you always want the latest it isn't the phone for you, for me it makes little difference. If I want the latest I'll put on a custom ROM but with S6 it works so well I haven't bothered.

 

 

 

 

Yup been running fine on mine for weeks, no fuss no muss

I don't want to manually load a ROM. I want the phone to timely update.

Yeah, I won't be buying another Samsung device. Hardware is great, but their software is slow to update, buggy, and not backward compatible (i.e. 2013 TV doesn't work with v2 app, v1 app doesn't work on the newer S6)

Any reason for the preference for the Indian one? Over the Nepal one for example? http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G920I/

I'd pick the Singapore ROM if I really couldn't wait and wanted to manually load a ROM, as most of our parallel imported phones come from there...

The Australian XSA rom has now been released, going to download and flash it today. http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G920I/

 

 

 

Hopefully this means NZ is close.

Just updated now, looking very good. Will flash the NZ rom when it is released, just to get Touch2Pay back. Update went very quickly, downloaded from the links on this page: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=2516893&p=18 instead. Odin initially stopped responding when I added the firmware, but soon started working.

Bit late to the party, but I have just updated my Spark S6 to 6.0.1. Because my phone is rooted I have to use the pc based 'smart switch' app to update. I reinstated root using cf autoroot rather than having to install a custom kernel as was required on 5.1.1. The downside of that is that 'secure settings' no longer works. That appears to be because autoroot is a 'non system' root method and secure settings refuses to work as it can't find a system/bin/su file.
I like the wireless charging graphic, not so enamoured by the new email app.
