    does the csc on both firmware of nougat and marshmallow should match?

  • Ákos Zsembery

    Hello! Can you please help me. I just installed android7 on my S6 edge and I don’t like it. I plan to downgrade back to 6.0. I think I understand what I need to do, but I don’t know which firmware I need to download. All the firmwares on sammobile for my country (Hungary) are from mobile providers (like Vodafone) but my phone is unlocked, working with all SIM cards. I bought it from a 3rd praty shop (100 % legal, not stolen or something like that.). So which one I need to use?

    • We are not sure about it, better post your question at XDA forums!
