upgraded my G901F from
rooted by KingRoot G901FXXU1BOK2 (NEE region), knox 0x0

to

G901FXXU1CPE1 (DBT region) without wipe , knox still 0x0

after upgrade telephone started up in 20 minutes, all this time taken by optimization of programms already installed and some other optimizations by new version of Android

upgrade process taken 13% of battery, phone was really hot

after upgrade process all is fine, root lost, but all programs working perfect and all my data still on its own places, nothing deleted at all (except SuperSU)

now phone look faster, will check battery life soon

I've downloaded it, i'm gonna upload it elsewhere for all of you, samsung-firmware is painfully slow (140ko/s)

I'll try maybe tonight, I just need odin right ?

edit : it's uploaded ! thanks fiber internet

use the small download button, not the big one
it should download without any restrictions... unlike on sammobile/samsung-firmware

I ve got my G901F from T-Mobile (Germany). Sammobile doesn't list a particular provider for this firmware - does that mean it is appliable to any G901F?

If yes, can I flash via ODIN using this procedure:

Instructions

Extract (unzip) the firmware file
Download Odin v3.10.7
Extract Odin ZIP file
Open Odin v3.10.7
Reboot Phone in Download Mode (press and hold Home + Power + Volume Down buttons)
Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
Add the firmware file to AP / PDA
Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
Click the start button, sit back and wait few minutes

I am only asking as my phone is software branded (T-Mobile). Will this particular 6.0.1 release be bloatware-free (or do I have to wait for another 6.0.X release for that..?)

I'm updated. Nothing special, no new features. It's only faster and more secure (app permissions)
Antutu score- higher than S6
