I am using App2SD ;(
Please provide patch for Samsung On7.
Thanks a lot for this patch which work fine on Galaxy A5 2016
For information, after your patch, if you reinstall a stock rom, you'r patch is still active. So, you will have a legacy rom, with automatic update through internet, no risk of lock if protection against modified installation is on.
the only trouble is that I was started by default in energy saver mode, but every thing is normal after desactivation of this mode
I have reported your work on a french forum
Thanks a lot again
Do you mean that if you have modified your Marshmallow 6.0 firmware on your Galaxy A5 2016 firmware to enable adoptable storage, you can then use Smartswitch to update to the latest 7.0 Nougat firmware, and your adoptable storage format and alkl your data will be preserved?
I have been postponing the upgrade of my Galaxy A5 2016 to Nougat for more than a year, because I am scared I will lose data or the adoptable storage feature I currently have setup with the Marshmallow 6.0 firmware thanks to the instructions provided by ashyx...
So if anyone can confirm whether it is possible to upgrade from a modified Marshmallow with an SD card configured with adoptable storage, to a Nougat firmware while retaining all data and the adoptable storage configuration, then I'll be really relieved to know I can safely update...
Many thanks for your quick reply danielfr40, and for the good news !!!
I'll try to upgrade to Nougat, I am currently rooted on Marshmallow but do not care very much if I lose the root privilege, it's becoming more of a hindrance than a good thing nowadays, with more and more apps detecting that you are rotted and blocking you...
Thanks again a lot;

Well, actually, after seeing a video on the highlights of Samsung's Nougat build for the A5 2016, I'm not sure it's really worth upgrading:
I must say I hate the new status / notifications area at the top, which requires you to swipe twice and scroll down to access the screen brightness slider, which I find is really cumbersome as I use it a lot when finding myself suddenly in bright sunshine, and it must be a pain to search for the slider while you are dazzled by the sun, whereas in Marshmallow you know exactly where the slider sits so you can even adjust it while you are blinded...
I was not really impressed either by the new Phone or Messages application redesign, I think they are less legible and there is less contrast than before for the menus...
So, al in all, I'm starting to think it's not worth the hassle...
But maybe you might have some good points about Nougat on the A5 2016 you can tell about Daniel, and give me a good (if not compelling) reason to upgrade, other than more upd-to-date and "secure" system ??
