    I wanted to downgrade my galaxy A7 2016 from nougat to marshmallow. I have downloaded Odin and firmware. When I unzip the firmware it's in the tar format and I don't know how to use it. Suggestions please

    Welcome to the forums. I think Odin can use the TAR format, you just need to apply all the files in the proper locations.

    Something to keep in mind: Samsung often restricts rolling back versions of Android. This may be the case if Odin can't roll back to Marshmallow.
