    Only if the update is actually released as the official OTA. If not, you have to ODIN back to stock and update the "long" way. The update files have specific requirements. You must be on an official release build to get the next one over OTA.

    But could I just factory reset and get it to update?
    A factory reset isn't an issue, I have most everything on the cloud.

    No as the previous poster pointed out you would need to odin flash back to the stock firmware in order to be
    able to receive the OTA. A factory reset would not help you at all.A phone that doesn't have official firmware is considered to have "modified firmware" and cannot receive an OTA update of any kind.

    Hopefully the current version is the final one and then we'd just be good to go with no flashing.

    Ok thank you. How hard is it to revert back through Odin? I am good with computers, just terrified about messing up my phone. Would you say it would be easy to brick the phone?

    The flashing through Odin is easy and quick (maybe 5 minutes.) The sideloading is a bit more complex because there are more variables and you have to follow the instructions carefully. Flashing your phone to the stock firmware will not affect the status of your phone in any way it will still be official. If sideloading doesn't work your phone will automatically reset itself so you're usually good there. Odin flash is exactly what ATT does at the store and the same at the Samsung store at Best Buy. No matter what you do you can generally flash back to the stock firmware.

    I think the best thing for you to do would be to read the extensive threads at XDA and see if you feel comfortable. If not no worries it's clearly on the way.

    Been on MM beta and got the one over OTA that everyone is now using as well. I think those of you that did a sideload will get the official one just fine if its different. I think this is it though. Its been perfect on my note 5. Everything works as well if not better than before.

    That's good, thanks for the information. I'm waiting for the OTA my self.

    @bbqwings2:
    Look at [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN. It holds true for any version of Android. The only problem is dying of boredom (the first boot can take 10 minutes of watching paint dry). Just make sure you're flashing the AT&T version for your model phone - that's the only thing you can do wrong, use the wrong ROM.

    I'm sure it will be here soon. The S6 got it a couple of weeks ago and we just got the May security update. Everyone take a deep breath it will be ok it's coming lol. Honestly it's nothing special as my girlfriend just updated her S6 to MM and it's really nothing to get all worked up about.

    I still haven't side loaded yet, and at this point I don't even really care about the update. All I want is a factory reset and goodlock!

    Was tempted to side load Marshmallow on my phone so I looked over the warranty for the Note 5. Since the version that sideloaders are using is not OTA it is thus unauthorized software and to put it on your phone will void the warranty. Attaining root access will also void your warranty as well. So if you decide to sideload, do so at your own peril. Yes it does thoroughly suck to have to wait as long as we have but waiting is advisable if you value your warranty. This is a link to the general warranty for Samsung devices. Samsung.

    I'm with an S7 Edge now, awesome device but I prefer the note. It is nice having some of the mm features, such as using my fingerprint to log into my bank account.

    All you do is flash the device back to official version. As long on as side loaded software is wiped from the phone you should be good

    EDIT: It seems the "And?" post I replied to was deleted?

    AND????

    AND... Note 5 is Samsung's flagship phone (now 2nd newest) vs Note 4 which is older! this is BS! I'm all for them taking time to make things work but... seriously, this is ridiculous. MM is now a year old, N will be out soon, EVERYONE including some MUCH OLDER devices have gotten the update or are getting it now! year after year AT&T fuks us over. WHY??? do they WANT? customers to jump ship??? and don't tell me to "get a nexus".

    I've never been THIS upset with AT&T about them not updating a flagship phone. Hey, I could have stayed with my note 3, which still works excellent, NOT pay more $, and NOT lose my 3GB/$30 data plan... hell in fact I could've just cancelled service all-together when contract ended. Calling over wifi with Viber, WhatsUp, or Fb is more than enough for me. I am connected to Wifi more than 95% of the time anyway. AT&T WHY am I paying you money at all???

    PS. Sorry, needed to vent.

    Why does upgrading the OS make you want to jump ship? They have us a security update this month so other than that I don't understand. Does your phone not work?

    Right, in addition sideloading doesn't affect the status of the phone or trip knox. The phone is still "official" and listed as such. And as noted, the firmware can be flashed back to completely stock official ATT firmware in about 5 minutes.

    They also added the infamous Carrier IQ back into the operating system with the security update. They call it IQ Agent now though.
    Have a look under running apps and check Android System. My battery has taken a noticeable hit since the update, and I know this wasn't there before.
