G920FXXU2BOFJ Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware for Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F). The G920FXXU2BOFJ is the first official 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware update Samsung Galaxy S6 SM-G920F and its initially rolled out in France. The Galaxy S6 SM-G920F will now move to the latest Android version 5.1.1 to Android 5.1.2. This leaves off the Android 5.0.2 which is the latter’s default firmware version during its production and market launch.
There are several changes you may find on Android 5.1.1 update, including device stability, bug fixes and security enhancements . Some noticeable features is the A-Z button for sorting the app icons in alphabetical order and exposure slider in the camera. The Quick Connect and S Finder is now has an option to remove some apps in the notification shade. While the Anti-theft Factory Reset Protection (FRP) that was seen on T-Mobile Galaxy S6 (SM-G920T) and Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925T) recent 5.1.1 update is not presented on the international Galaxy S6 SM-G920F 5.1.1 update.
The disadvantage on G920FXXU2BOFJ Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware when it comes to rooting. The G920FXXU2BOFJ Android 5.1.1 cannot be rooted at this moment since the firmware build version is new. Adding on that, the G920FXXU2BOFJ Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is non-dowgradeable back to previous Android 5.0.2. So once you took the G920FXXU2BOFJ Android 5.1.1 firmware update, there is no returning back to the old Android 5.0.2. Doing so might just result into soft-bricks.
But when it comes to the device usability, I highly recommend this firmware because it brings a much smoother transition in users interface (UI) even during heavy use of multitasking it doesn’t show any issues. The battery life stays the same from previous releases, but it’s too early to tell. Those who might want try or install this G920FXXU2BOFJ 5.1.1 firmware version, just follow the step by step procedure below.

(I will just add more countries if somehow available soon)Step 2: Prepare things as follows:
– Use a PC or laptop that runs in Windows OS, with a good and perfectly working USB serial port.
– Use the USB data cable for your Galaxy S6.
– Make sure that your Galaxy S6 battery is fully charge.
– Back up all important files stored from your phone’s internal memory – contacts, messages, etc. Use Samsung Smart Switch for PC to back up and restore your files. .
– Enable USB debugging from your phone’s settings. Go to Settings > Applications > Development, and tick the box that says ‘Enable USB Debugging’.
– Do a “Hard Reset” if you have a lot of 3rd party applications installed from your phone, this is useful to gain a smooth flashing. (Just make sure that you already back up all your important files before resetting your device.
Step 3: Extract or unzip the downloaded stock firmware so that you’ll get the Odin flashable .tar.md5 file.
Step 4: Run and Configure Odin
Run Odin downloader on your computer’s desktop. Watch out the check-boxes options on the right top of Odin, ensure that the ‘RE-PARTITION’ is unchecked. Leave the ‘AUTO-REBOOT and ‘F.RESET TIME’ remains checked.
Now, click on the AP button, then select and load the tar file that you have previously extracted.Here’s how Odin should look like.The “G920FXXU2BOFJ_G920FOXA2BOFJ3_HOME.tar.md5″ should be loaded on the AP button.Step 5: Reboot the Galaxy S6 into Download Mode.
To set your Galaxy S6 in download mode, just simply switch it off then gently press and hold the “POWER, VOLUME DOWN and HOME” buttons simultaneously. You’ll be then prompted in a warning screen to continue or cancel.Step 6: Connect the Phone to the Computer or Laptop.
Once the phone screen shows in downloading mode, connect your phone to the PC with the USB cable. You’ll then notice the upper box in Odin that turns in yellow color., it also indicates the COM:ID where the device is being detected and a word “added!!’ on the log box. If somehow those things never showed up, check out the USB cable connection, read again from the top of this post.
Step 7: Flash it!
Once all set and ready, hit he “START” button to begin flashing.
Do not touch anything that might interrupt the process to avoid any fatal errors or failures, it may ruin your device if any interruption occurs while already in flashing status.It may only takes about 3 to 5 minutes, depends of your PC/laptop speeds. A word “PASS” will display in Odin once it finishes. If somehow you will not get the word “PASS” or just stuck in a long time. Disconnect the phone, check the USB connection, re-install the driver, disable Kies and any anti-virus. Set the phone in Download mode again, and repeat the whole procedure.The phone will just automatically reboots if the firmware flashing successfully completes. Just wait until it boots up on the “Samsung” logo for a while then into an android update screen. If it still shows boot logo try rebooting and if it stays there, you need to wipe your phone.
Fixing possible issues after flashing like bootloops or just stuck in welcome screen logo.This problem only occurs if your Galaxy S6 is previously rooted or runs on modified and non-Samsung firmware. You may try to resolve it by booting the device in recovery mode – Press and hold Volume Up, Home and Power button. Use volume keys to select up and down and power or home key to select the option.1.
