    If you look through the very large XDA thread, there's not one way that worked for everyone. Some people, including myself, used the file name as is. Some were successful with .zip, others with .zip.zip, and still others with shortening the name of the file.

    You can actually test it before sideloading. With your phone *not* connected give the adb sideload command using your file name. For example, with myself, using just the name as is, adb attempts to load the file. If I use mm.zip I get the cannot read error.

    There's no need for a .zip extension at all; furthermore, giving it that extension can apparently make the update process fail if you have 3rd-party zip utilities installed on your PC. There's no need to rename the downloaded file at all, but if you do, make it something easy to type.
    I guess that's what I was trying to say. The file itself is already a .zip

    You would just need to make sure it remains a whatever.zip

    If two .suffixes are there, you will have problems. Your computer may not display the extension, so if you don't see .zip, don't add it. Just rename if you want and off you go. Type whatever it's called.zip

    I've tried with and without the extension and get the same error. Good luck. I don't think that anybody who has recently tried to upgrade this way has been succeeding.
    As for recently, I did mine this past Saturday - a few minor bugs but eventually, it worked fine! Apologies if this has been mentioned already - I didn't bother reading backwards to see if anyone had mentioned this already. When I read through most of the comments on the XDA step by step post, someone mentioned that Windows 10 was causing an "Unable to Read File" error - I am still running Windows 7 on my main PC and that's what I used. It worked for me - I also saw a few comments where people with the issue tried again on a PC NOT running Windows 10 and they succeeded. Again, if this is a rehash, I'm sorry - just trying to help.

    I tried initially on Windows 10, then on Windows 8. Used everything that others have posted about. No go.

    I'm just wondering if the June Security update, that i received, was after the version being offered through XDA, That might have something to do with it not working. Just a thought, as the file system changed.?

    You need to download and then sideload an update file that corresponds to the firmware you're already running. XDA has links to updates from APB2 and APE3 (among others). APE3 is the June security update.

    If your build number is N920AUCS2APE3, the file you need is https://xdmd.sl.attcompute.com/agent...3-to-U2BPE6-UP

    If your build number is N920AUCU2APB2, the file you need is https://xdmd.sl.attcompute.com/agent...2-to-U2BPE6-UP

    Just wandering... Why would there even be different firmware in the first place? In my mind you go to at&t store and you buy a note 5 and it should be identical in every sense to a note 5 that another customer bought. What am i missing here? Thanks.

    I'll take that with a grain of salt that the reps just don't have a clue as they are always the last to know.

    The difference is not the hardware, its the firmware. At&t released the June security update a week or so ago. Some people chose not to do the update. That is why 2 versions (with and without).

    Absolutely right "boufa" - I postponed the Security Update and waited like 4 days, then did it... that's why there's two different versions!

    O.K., O.K. - I surrender... I have just been trying to help. At 66 years old and tired of Tech Stuff, it still worked for me! So I have it and you don't... hang in there - AT&T should release it sooner or later.

    AT&T reps don't know if or when updates are forthcoming. Over the past few months, AT&T reps have repeatedly been quoted falsely predicting imminent release dates.

    If AT&T wants to announce a release date, they issue a statement to the press, or post the information on their website. They don't release the information to the public solely by passing it along to the phone/chat reps and waiting for customers to inquire about it.

    Nonetheless, even ignoring the rep, June 20 is kind of plausible. That'll be one month since the kernel-build date of the latest MM firmware (BPE6, which includes the June 1 security update) available on AT&T's server.

    The APE3 OTA (as well as the BPE6 sideload) includes the June security update.

    I was able to sideload MM yesterday morning with very little issue. After reading the XDA thread, the whole process took a little over 40 minutes.

    Like others before me in this thread, one of my issues came from not having the zip file in the same folder as the adb files. My other issue was step 9 in the instructions. After typing the command "adb devices" you're supposed to see a device attached result. I never was able to see anything. So I started from scratch. I downloaded the adb file once again and reinstalled it. Next, I downloaded the update for my build (in my case, it was 2APE3) directly into the adb folder.

    I then followed all the steps as described in the XDA thread without a hitch. By the way, in case anyone is wondering, I was able to install MM on a Windows 7 machine and I do have the June Security Update installed.
