Download Samsung Galaxy S6 SM-G920 Nougat 7.0 Stock Firmware (All Variants)

After the success of Samsung Galaxy S5, the expectation raised towards the S6 variant. Wonder is Samsung doesn’t disappoint any of the users. It comes with 3 GB RAM and Exynos 7420 Octa-Core processor. It is better than Snapdragon 820 processor. Why I am saying is this, It is a 2015 model. Recent Android mobiles come with 3 GB RAM as a starter pack. If you still have this device, It will perform better compared with some new models. Coming to OS, It comes with lollipop 5.0.2 as a default OS. Samsung rolled out three significant upgrades- 5.1.1, 6.0.1, and the recent Nougat 7.0 version.Galaxy S6 with Sea Shell Background

  1. hi
    thank you for your help
    I have a 920A S6 at&t bricked phone.
    I don’t know how to solve the problem.
    I have a file for downgrade.
    Can you tell me if it will work?

    • AT&T carrier has a locked bootloader. Flashing with ODIN may not work. But you can try. Flash the whole single firmware file using AP in ODIN. Don’t extract the data.

      • THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWER
        I confirm that my phone is unlocked
        I tried to flash it; I had this log
        Get PIT for mapping.

        NAND Write Start!!
        Complete(Write) operation failed.
        All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
        Removed!!
        Added!!

        I was stuck at 99%
        then the phone turned off
        I have this message

        • If you are confident enough, you have unlocked mobile, What Build number firmware did you flash using ODIN?
