    I have the 9.7" Galaxy Tab S2, no carrier or anything. I was reading that Samsung is supposed to be rolling out the update to Marshmallow now. How do you typically go about getting the update? Will it be in Software update under About Device like other updates usually are?

    Yes, the update will be under the about device/software update settings. Updates are pushed out in phases (usually), but you can often download directly from Samsun via Kies. Go to the Samsung and enter your model number. See if there is an update available to be downloaded and installed.

    Right now it's currently rolling out in Germany and UK for the Tab S2 for both the 8" and 9.7".

    Unfortunatley Kies does not support the Tab S2 (I tried). Kies told me to install Smart Switch.

    Keep checking these forums though. When the update hits the US, it'll be posted here.

    I got tired of waiting myself and upgraded using the German firmware. It was quick and painless. So far so good. No issues to speak of and it definitely seems smoother overall.

    See the link below. The first 4 firmware files listed are all Marshmallow and will probably work just fine. The German version is 4th in the list (region DBT).

    https://samsung-firmware.org/model/SM-T810/

    Note sure if this was mentioned somewhere before, but there is a tool called samfirm that downloads the firmware directly from Samsung's servers. It can easily be found with a Google search. I would post a link but I'm not sure of the rules regarding posting links to other forums. Hopefully the link above was ok to be posted. If not, remove it, no big deal. Anyone looking for the firmware can easily find them with a google search.

    Does installing this firmware wipe all settings or is it treated like an upgrade?

    Getting ready to install the Australian firmware update...I have USA version. Seems pretty easy...No excuse not to have the update by now. They do not even have to go through a carrier for the WiFi version.

    It upgraded mine without wiping but your mileage may vary. It's always best to backup any important user data.

    Manual update. Tablet hadn't been turned on for about a week so I decided to check for any updates. And there it was 6.01. Figured I was late to the party.

    How does the Verizon version get updated before the WiFi version? Doesn't make any sense...
