Galaxy S6 Stock Firmware

Galaxy S6 Stock firmware from the latest and newest official OTA update. This page you can find the most latest version of Galaxy S6 Stock firmware that we are going to use to restore back our phone to its official and original Android OS. This stock firmware was directly pulled from official OTA update during its roll out period. These are the full factory images or  also what we called as ‘Galaxy S6 Stock ROM’ that are officially built and released by the developers at Samsung itself during the Galaxy S6 OTA software updates.  It remained as original as it was, untouched nor modified and rooted by any means.

This stock firmware is very useful to remove root and return back the Galaxy S6 phone to its default settings.  On the other hand,  the stock firmware is also what we need if we want to fully wipe any unofficial and custom-made firmware we have had installed in our Galaxy S6 device.

If you will just use the stock firmware to unroot or return your Galaxy S6 to stock, you must only grab the corresponding firmware build version in the list below, Just make sure that it will match the firmware build number version of your rooted or modified Samsung Galaxy S6.

Please read our safety guidelines on how to properly re-flash one of these Galaxy S6 Stock Firmware into this page: How to Safely Unroot Galaxy S6, Restore Back to Stock Firmware

You might check and confirm which version of Galaxy S6 you have according to its model number. This is a very important part especially for beginners, that is because each specific Galaxy S6 models uses different firmware builds.
To do this just simply dial this code on the keypad *#12345# or by going to the Home Menu>>Settings>About Device> then look for the Model number along with general system information of your phone.

How about the Galaxy S6 Edge with model number SM-G925/SM-G925x?
Do not ever install the Galaxy S6 stock firmware on a Galaxy S6 Edge model.  If you have a Galaxy S6 Edge model variant then find the Galaxy S6 Edge Stock Firmware here.

Important Notes:

DO NOT USE the stock firmware to DOWNGRADE the GALAXY S6 from Android 5.1.1 back to Android 5.0.2. A new security policy has been imposed, doing so will not work and it only fails.

You should only use the most latest and newest stock firmware on your Galaxy S6. The latest update simply means it’s a lot better and it has several bug fixes and improvements added on it. Do not use an older stock firmware if your Galaxy S6 already runs on the most latest firmware update or else your device OS will be outdated and sometimes it causes issues. Some latest updates may include some patches or otherwise noted but not limited to the US versions of Galaxy S6 that might break the bootloader that may results into unwanted soft-bricks such as bootloops and just stuck at Samsung logo.

You may only download and install the specified stock firmware according to your Galaxy S6 model number.  There are several versions of the Galaxy S6 across the world.  Each of these Galaxy S6 versions has different firmware build versions, according to regions, network providers. Therefore, flashing a non-specified stock firmware to other Galaxy S6 model variants may result into undesirable outcomes. Meaning it will also cause damage to your phone and you cannot recover it by your own.  So please don’t play around and mess with the stock firmware if you don not have any idea how to use it.  Use of these Galaxy S6 stock firmware is solely at your own risk.

Note: This page and the list below will be updated from time to time if and when there are new sets of stock firmware packages being held for grab.

Note: We discontinued support for SM-G9200, SM-G920K, SM-G920L and G920S  due to low activity of these particular Galaxy S6 models. Some of the stock firmware has been kept here: Stock Firmware for Korea Galaxy S6 Models

Why we need the Galaxy S6 Stock Firmware?

FAQ’s about the Galaxy S6 Stock Firmware:

Advanced users and after-market developers had to use a stock firmware.  On the advanced users side, thus who loves to tinker their devices they need it if they are about to restore their phone to its factory default state.  Android is an Open Source Project (AOSP), some after-market developers are also free to use the stock firmware as their base for customization purposes, such as changing the look and  feel of the stock and adding a but more tweaks and stuff.

What are these Galaxy S6 Stock Firmware is capable to?

  1. Remove Root and Unroot the Galaxy S6
    You can only use the stock firmware if and when you have had a rooted Galaxy S6  and wants to fully unroot it. Sometimes rooting may cause some adverse effect to the device.  So if we’ve noticed that there is something went wrong after rooting,  and then we want to fully removed the root that already stick and overrides the original firmware.  So the stock firmware can do the thing to  restore our Galaxy S6 to its original state.
  2. Fix a Soft bricked  Galaxy S6
    To root and modify our Galaxy S6 is fun indeed. But when times comes that we have messed-up from modification and ended-up our precious devices into bootloops  (phone keeps restarting),  stuck at Samsung logo welcome screen. Only then we are going to need the stock firmware so we can fix phone out of our own. The service center will not cover or render the warranty of the phone if they finds out that it was the result of our own negligence. 
  3. Revert back the Galaxy S6 to Stock from Custom
    The stock firmware is capable to restore our Galaxy S6 to stock official firmware from any custom ROM we have installed.
  4. Manually Upgrade the Galaxy S6 – One of your last resort to get the newest software update when the time comes that OTA update and even Kies / Smart Switch update has blocked your Galaxy S6 when it finds out that your device has been modified and rooted.
  5. Dump any individual system files, an after market developers method
    Pull out individual system images such as Kernel, Boot image, Stock Recovery, CSC image, Modem, Radio Interface Layer (RIL) etc.

Which particular things the stock firmware cannot do?

  1. Can it be use for unlocking the Galaxy S6?
    The stock firmware cannot unlock a carrier locked Samsung Galaxy S6 from a certain network providers. If one might have thought that installing an unbranded stock firmware on-top on carrier branded Galaxy S6 will unlocked the device so then they will be able to use it to other network providers SIM-cards. No, it will not unlock the Galaxy S6.  It will just remove the branding of the phone, as it only changes the carrier logo,  default apps and ringtones but the phone stays locked to a certain mobile network operator.
  2. Can it be use to reset the KNOX Warranty Void counter?

If our Galaxy S6 has been rooted, or otherwise runs in custom recovery and any unofficial system images which weren’t officially built by Samsung, this will tripped the KNOX warranty flag counter.  Once the KNOX tripped it is irreversible by any means, so the stock firmware cannot fix it.
