At&t finally broke the silence and started updating the Galaxy Note N910A to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Along side the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note Edge also received the update. At this time, while manufacturers are preparing to update their flagship devices to Android 7.0 Nougat, the 2014 flagships are getting updated to Marshmallow firmware which gives hints towards a very late Android Nougat update for these devices (only if they are going to get it).
Marshmallow firmware brings a lot of goodies with some new graphics added to the device, enhanced battery life and better performance, new toggles and so many features that you haven’t had before. It’s always a good idea to be on the latest firmware as it secures your device keeping it bug free.

How to update At&t Note 4 N910A to stock Android Marshmallow
Make sure that your device is running on one of the build numbers listed below, and download the firmware according to the last 4 digits of your phone’s build number. Check the build number under Settings > About device > Build number.
*DOIx should be your running firmware and EPH5 is the new Marshmallow firmware.
In case you are on DO12, you need to flash these files one by one to reach DO16 at the least and then flash DO16 to EPH5. The instructions listed below will remain same for all files.
- Copy the downloaded firmware.zip file to your phone’s sd card.
- Now boot your phone into recovery mode. To do so, turn it off completely first. Now turn it on by pressing and holding Volume + Home + Power buttons.
- Once your phone is in recovery mode, select “apply update from sd card” using volume rockers.
- Now select the firmware.zip file that you downloaded and in the next step select “yes”.
- It will start flashing the newly downloaded firmware. Once flashing ends, reboot your device.
- As your device boots up, you will find the Android Marshmallow EPH5 firmware running on it. That’s all.
