Ok, on to my next problem(s) then. So I've installed the DBT version of 6.0.1 on my 910F, and flashed CF autoroot, both using Odin.

Next I've tried to install TWRP (in order to later flash xposed), but it hasn't worked so far. This has caused my phone to get stuck on the boot screen. I was able to boot into TWRP though. Is there anything special I need to do to get TWRP without causing problems to my stock MM installation? Or can I install xposed without TWRP? Is it possible to flash using Odin?

There is one thing that I have found peculiar. In official 6.0 our note 4 lost the ability to have the spen view as a mouse pointer for links. That was actually useful on sites were they had menus.

I think it's in your 'more'settings.....

Thanks, but I was referring to xposed there. And Google hasn't yet given me an answer to that question. Believe me I have been Googling a LOT recently. =)

After installing DBT 6.0.1. on my Netherlands Note 4, I noticed several issues:

- weak 3g/4g signal
- weak wifi or slow net (for example surfing with chrome is much slower than on 5.1.1., sometimes it is impossible to browse the web)
- sometimes phone has lags, can't even shutdown, only solution is to pull out the battery

Guys I have a big problem. I Have Android 6.0.1 on my Note 4. And i rooted it.
Now my problem is that i cant install system applications. i tried from Galaxy apps store from google play store
and the Good Lock app with the apk . its not working non of them.
Before i had root i could install the good lock app.

Yes its real. I have MM on my Note 4. I used to video along with my note.


Thanks for the confirmation! I'm really happy to read this. Spen apps and features update are what i desiderd most from this update.

One clarification: can i assume that all rom released in different country will be the same under this side (spen feature and apps version)? Or is possible that, for e.g. Samsung Italy will release a rom that doesn't have all the feature of the one released from Samsung UK?

Sorry, what did you mean whit:
I used to video along with my note.

(i'm not EN mother tongue).

Bye.

You are not the only one. I have seen some users complaining about the same thing (in a different country). Could you post if the issues will be gone with the latest update that is seeding this week?

Previously, the firmware Nordic countries had good modems for Europe.

Well, I updated firmware few hours ago. It seems ok for now, but I'll keep you posted.

    Well, I have always had a Samsung. But now I sold my Note 4 and went to Apple - iPhone. Never again a Samsung. What a bad policy concerning updating. Especially the Note 4.
    Thanks to all developers though for their hard work.

    Greatings Bert.
    Great, now if you set the date as 1st january 1970 and reboot, you will enjoy the latest iphone feature.

    If anyone is interested I'll share some thoughts over my N910H MM update

    -I didn't dirty flash it (I made LL recovery hard reset before and MM recovery hard reset after flashing)
    -Setup, backup restore and installation of all the apps I'm using went smoothly (only Samsung's Game Recorder+ doesn't work)
    -Connectivity (wifi, gsm, gps, bt...etc) and sensors (light, proximity, hearth, UV) works without single glitch so far (BT is power hungry)
    Yes I turned BT background location support MM now gives as new option available
    -Micro-SD card works in all apps I used before and now, all the same
    -Fingerprint is working normaly like it used to on LL (maybe even more accurately than it was)
    -Charging is OK both normal and Fast charging
    -Battery life is excellent (when BT is OFF) I use Gear Fit and it spent more phone battery than it used to on LL and KK
    -It is maybe to soon to judge but battery is far more better than it was.... time will tell
    -TouchWiz is smooth (maybe placebo) but it looks so (I like new screen off animation, icons and folders - that's preety much it)

    -NEW S Pen air command with shortcuts and whole screen screenshot is more than welcome
    -new screen off S Pen option is THE best addition
    -Smart manager is also more detailed and intel security is faster, as well as new widget addition
    -Samsung internet browser is newer in version than it is on google play but it lacks secret mode tab
    -Memo and scrapbook are newer with memo widget that was missing on LL
    -New KIDS mode app version, more options
    -NEW S Note with all new s pen addons (I like)
    -Settings are almost identical to LL (I like GOOGLE settings hidden from app drawer and located in /Settings/Aplication settings/google)
    -Google Now and now on tap are both running from the start and they are not battery consuming as I thought
    they will considering my experience with Google Now on LL

    Few things I don't like (Bugs more likely)

    -BT is battery hog at the moment (however because of the rest of system battery management I still squeezed 24h /5h screen time out of it)
    now I'm testing the phone with BT off (I am GEAR user) and by the looks of it, it is going to last way more!!!
    -Sound, vibration, mute mode is buggy or I'm missing something as the phone vibrates even after I put it on MUTE
    -And fullscreen weather widget app animation is still twitching like it was on LL

    Phone is working more fluently, no force closing of apps, no slowdowns and no glitches,
    All in all it is going to be way more better than LL once they fix these few bugs

    That's all for now

    Same here. Also the battery life started rapidly deteriorating.

    So, I did a wife-factory reset and now things are back to normal.

    Was your wife asking you to do the yard, take the trash out, or stop watching so much futbol when you posted this?:laugh:
