  12. I read on another site where this doesn’t work on US versions of the S7. Is that true?

  13. Kristoffer Torsvik Reply

    So I downloaded the Marshmallow version and I followed all the steps to the point, but still i have Android f***** 7… tips?

  14. Kristoffer Torsvik Reply

    Am i supposed to use the CSC file, or the HOME_CSC file ?

  15. After this, how do you prevent the s7 from automatically downloading and asking you repeatedly to do software update again?
