How to install Android 6.0 Marshmallow on Samsung Galaxy Grand 2
The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 has been quite popular since it was launched as it comes with pretty well hardware specification. Launched in year 2014 with Android 4.3 Jelly bean operating system and then updated to Android KitKat operating system. However after that update no further firmware has been released by Samsung for this handset which is quite disappointing for Galaxy Grand 2 users, of course. However we can still update our device using the custom and here in this post we gonna do it.
If you are looking to update Galaxy Grand 2 to latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system then CyanogenMod Rom would be a good option for update process. All credit goes to @faizauthar12 who brought this CyanogenMod Marshmallow build over an XDA forum and we could use it update our device. Since it is unofficial build you may expect some bugs there, so you should be sure to install this Rom and if it causes any damage to your device we’ll not be responsible for it.
Further to make sure that this Rom gets installed without any problem you should have a custom recovery, CWM or TWRP which ever you have. It is mandatory to install this Rom using a custom recovery over a stock recovery it won’t be installed correctly. As it is CyanogenMod Rom, you can expect good performance and stability, in most of the aspects you’ll see improvements.
We always recommend to back up all the files and apps stored under the device’s memory and which are important to you. The installation process will wipe out the entire memory of the device and it cannot be undone. So back up all the important stuff to safe place.
