Earlier this year, Samsung has released the Android Lollipop update for its Galaxy Note 3 device, unfortunately, this device is not eligible to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.

However, thanks to the a XDA Developer Forum member that’s named Morningstar, there is a custom Android 6.0 Marshmallow CyanogenMod CM13 custom Rom for the Galaxy Note 3 LTE model and today we’re going to teach you how to install it on your device.

First of all, you will need to download to your computer the CyanogenMod CM13 Android 6.0 Marshmallow custom ROM for Galaxy Note 3 zip and the Google Apps zip files from the XDA Developer Forum.

After that, you will need to connect your Galaxy Note 3 to your computer via a USB Cable and copy the zip files to the microSD card that’s attached to your mobile device. Then, turn off the Galaxy Note 3 device and disconnect it from your computer, now, boot it into Recovery Mode by long pressing the Power and Volume down buttons.

Here you will need to clear your device’s memory by selecting the wipe option. Finally, get back the main recovery menu and select the “Install zip from SD card” and select the CyanogenMod CM13 Android 6.0 Marshmallow zip file, once this file is installed on your Galaxy Note 3, tap “Install zip from SD card” once again and install the Google Apps zip file.

Finally, you will need to return to the main recovery menu once again and select “reboot” to restart your Galaxy Note 3 so that it can boot into the custom Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS for the first time.

Google Nexus 7 (2012) can now be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow via AOSP custom ROM

Google announced that its Nexus 7 device will not be able to be updated to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. It seems that once again, a member from the XDA Developer Forum comes to the “rescue” and brings a custom Android 6.0 Marshmallow (AOSP) custom ROM, his name is vocoderism and he’s a XDA Developer senior member.

So, download the Android 6.0 Marshmallow via AOSP custom ROM zip file and Google Apps zip file from the XDA Developer forum, connect your Google Nexus 7 device to your computer via an USB cable and copy the zip files from your computer to your mobile device.

From now on, you will just need to follow the similar steps that you would do on the Galaxy Note 3, by wiping the device’s memory and install the zip files.
