  • Ravi Vishwakarma

  • Abhijit Munje

    5.0.1 already installed, i want upgrade 5.1.1 it’s suitable?

  • Sarang

    Hi Abhijit, sorry for the late reply. If you have the same model number then you can install this firmware. It should work for the Indian carrier as well. Backup and download the firmware for Indian variant i.e, 5.0.1 as a backup.

  • Abhijit Munje

    hey frend plzzzz…. rply me…

  • Abhijit Munje

    your device is rooted or not?

  • Abhijit Munje

    i am using note 4 sm n-910g indian variant so please tell me can i install this update in my device?

  • Prashanth Kumar S P

    Installed 5.1.1 on Indian version Note 4 – SM-N910G, its working fine.

  • Sarang

    You may face some radio problems (network & data) as it is for the Australian variant.

  • Milan chettri

    can i install it in my indain variant sm n910g which now i have 5.0.1. i am confused.

  • Neel

    Yes. Will wait only.

  • Sarang

    As I can see the Indian variant has received update till v5.0.2 only. I think you should wait for the update to roll out or we will update the links as we get it.

  • Neel

    But I checked the build number, and it is same as Australia TELSTRA carrier, so I don’t think that this will work with my Indian variant. Any thoughts?

  • Sarang

    Yes Neel, you can try it. Knox should not be a problem as it is a stock firmware.

  • Neel

    I’m from india with N910G and snapdragon variant. Should i give this a try? Will knox interfere with it?
