    Yes, could be that it doesn't work with the fingerprint scanner turned on.

    Anyway, tried Good Lock once. Unfortunately it's still not to my liking. Which made me go back to the original TouchWiz combined with Nova again.
    Yeah same here.

    For some reason the lock screen doesn't show charging status anymore. Samsung what have you done??!!

    Same here! At least it seems that the update is running smoothly for most . I really don't want to have to do a factory reset...

    I updated last week and didn't do a factory reset. I simply cleared cache from the boot menu and haven't had issues since updating. I've also installed the new Good Lock UI, and love the new lock screen and notification tray.

    I wrote on another forum about my 'fun' doing a factory reset after the 6.01 update.
    It was working fine after the initial OTA update but I usually to a factory reset anyway after a major update.

    So after the factory reset, a couple of menus in and the reactivation lock kicked in, nothing new here as I've had that with the lollipop version 5.1, but this time after entering my Samsung account details all I got was 'process failed' (Google this, it's more common than you would think) so after endless retrys and a phone call to Samsung customer service, nothing changed!

    So the only possible thing I could think of was to revert back to 5.1 using Odin, set phone up and then deactivate Samsung reactivation lock, then update to marshmallow again, all went to plan and it's now running sweet.
    I hope this helps at least one person because it was a right pain and time consuming!

    3rd party fonts still working for me. I'm not liking this hybrid touch wiz theme though. Just seems a bit of a mess with the old lollipop colours and new tw icons. Its like the worse of both world's. Lol.

    All I wanted was the theme store.
    Get the Good Lock app and your phone will look like an S7 - if you have the Marshmallow update on your N910F. Here's mine:

    Are there any other aesthetic changes? Does the TouchWiz launcher now dynamically change the notification bar font color depending on the background? (ie if you have a white background, you get black font) The Galaxy s7 does this as well as iOS

    Does if you download the Good Lock app from apkmirror.com. Looks like an S7

    Thanks. I did do that but I miss the weather info and right hand camera shortcut on the lockscreen. Plus my fingerprint scanner doesn't yet work with it.

    That's the only issue I have with Good Lock on the Note 4 - it doesn't support fingerprint lock (granted I really don't lock my phone with the fingerprint). You are however able to customize your shortcuts on the lockscreen - I currently have five shortcuts on mine, one being the camera.

    If you didn't know already, you can change the color of the UI as well.

    So I got marshmallow yesterday (I also have the n910f variant of the phone). And so far, indeed things seem to be running smoothly. One thing I do really dislike though is the grey bar at the top of my screen (the one with the time, battery and connection info). It used to be transparent but now it's grey because I have power saving mode one. The only thing that gets rid of the color is switching power saving mode off.. sigh.. That's the one thing that really bothers me, because I really like having that mode on.

    Otherwise things to be running well but not a whole lot better from before. Maybe a bit better. If I notice anything, either good or bad, I'll make sure to post about it

    Btw, how does one go about installing good lock on a note 4? I noticed that it doesn't seem to be out officially for the note and that one has to use apkmirror? Is that safe? Can one go back after? Does good lock offer better performance or just a cleaner, more convenient UI?

    Yeah, I only really want the camera though and its better for me on the right hand side. I actually prefer the design of the TW lockscreen tbh.

    The notification shade looks real good though.

    I finally got mine upgraded took forever but it was worth the wait. I was so tempted to wipe my phone before cause it was restarting on it's own every so often with lollipop. The upgrade my phone has been more stable and even better with the battery.

    Yeah true. That was a very convenient feature of the camera shortcut on the lock screen. I miss it as well, hopefully there comes an official version accommodating the shortcut as well

    I would prefer though just to double tap the home button for camera but that will never happen. (on the lock screen anyway).

    Do this though, make your screen lock just a swipe and set your camera shortcut in the grid, should come close to before as below:

    Can you advise how you managed the successful reversion back to version 5.1 using Odin? Where can I get the firmware file that is reliable?
