NOTE: OFFICIAL 6.0.1 IS OUT FOR SM-G928F
NO NEED FOR THIS ANYMORE!




Hi everyone!

First of all, I don't figured out how this works, it was @adoe !
All credits go to him!

Here comes a little guide on how to flash Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on

SM-G928F

It's confirmed working by myself!

NOTE: I don't know if it triggers the knox counter, as my is already triggered before!
If anyone is brave enough to flash without knowing or doesn't care if it triggers the knox counter, please let me know if it triggered!

Knox counter confirmed to stay on 0x0


1. Download official SM-G928C Android 6.0.1 firmware from Sammobile or another source you probably know.

2. Download .pit file from attachments below. Thanks to @adoe for this file

3. In Odin choose the firmware for SM-G928C as AP (former PDA) and choose ZENLTE_EUR_OPEN_HIDDEN250M.zip as Pit. (NOTE: USE THIS PIT FILE ONLY ON SM-G928F! OTHERWISE YOU WILL HARDBRICK YOUR DEVICE!)

4. Make sure Re-Partition is enabled!

5. Make sure Nand Erase All is enabled!

6. Flash!

7. Let's eat Marshmallows!

8. (optional) For root and deep sleep fix install THIS (thanks to @Chainfire) via Odin as PDA

Screenshots on how to set Odin as well as the Odin version that I use in attachments!

Hope you guys enjoy!

Every firmware has a own pit file in it. When you flash G928F firmware it will flash it's device specific pit file, wenn you fash G928C firmware it will flash it's device specific pit file, too.
For this, you give odin the device specific pit file for G928F, so that it will work.
When you want to go back on G928F firmware (obviously when official MM firmware comes out) you need no pit file as it's already included in the firmware.

Would like to know it too, as my counter is already triggered.

So next time when I flash for F variant do I have to select repartition and Nand Erase All again or no need?
