        Then what’s the use of posting this if only Russian users can make use of the update file? I mean, Russians already have it available via OTA. They’re already running the Marshmallow OS!

    • It’s not available for Indian Version for now..but I will post it as soon as its available.

    • It’s been released. Yesterday only I Updated my Samsung J7 to Marshmallow. It’s working fine since yesterday. Lols ;)
      And anyone can Update on mobile via WiFi or 4G, although Samsung won’t recommend to Update ourself.
