1. Android Central Question's Avatar

    I'm sorry if this question is in the wrong place, or has been asked before, but I'm in a bit of a flap trying to sort out a problem I have created for myself.

    I recently bought a new UAE galaxy note 5 in the UK thinking that it would be like buying an iPad, that they are international devices that can be used (and updated) in any territory.

    More fool me.
    I now see that my phone is "stuck on" android 6.0.1 and I can't update the firmware to Nougat or later OS's.

    Is it possible to safely convert my UAE phone so that it runs a standard UK android OS as normal and gets future UK updates as they are released.

    If possible; I'd rather do this in the simplest, quickest and safest way, withiut rooting (if possible).

    Thanks for your help..

    I don't think that it can be done, but I'll move the thread to the Note 5 forum for comments from other users.
