How To: Get Android 6.0 Marshmallow Beta Installed On Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

Get Android 6.0 Marshmallow Beta

Samsung has begun accepting users of their Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge for their Marshmallow beta public program.  Samsung has begun to roll out a beta version of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow to users of these devices in the UK.

If you own a Galaxy S6 or a S6 Edge and you live in the UK, is a great opportunity for you to try Marshmallow.  Android 6.0 Marshmallow includes a new and revamped TouchWiz UI with less bloatware and smoother software.  There are also several performance and batter enhancements.

In this post, we’ve found a way that you can install this beta program on these devices.  Before we begin, your phone has to have Android 5.1.1 Lollipop BTU firmware.  You can check your firmware version by looking for the build number or baseband version in Settings>About Device.  Look for your BTU code.  If you are not running it, download it here.  After installing this firmware, follow these steps.
