Released with Android 5.1 Lollipop, the Galaxy J7 should be receiving the official Marshmallow update from Samsung later on. Right now, only Galaxy S6 (and S6 Edge and Edge Plus) and Note 5 are in line for the Android 6.0 treat, but other Samsung device, starting with Galaxy S5 and Note 4, should start seeing the day in Marshmallow, and that includes Galaxy J7 too.
That was about official Samsung Marshmallow update, but if unofficial is fine by you — it is for us, totally — then you can upgrade to Marshmallow now. Using the custom ROM called CM13 — the most popular ROM and base for countless other ROMs — you can install Marshmallow on Galaxy J7 in next 30-60 mins.
You will need TWRP recovery installed on your Galaxy J7 for this, which is used to install CM13 or any other custom ROM. For more help with installation, see the relevant section below.
Galaxy J7 Marshmallow Update
- Samsung Galaxy J7, model no. J700F/H/M

Download Marshmallow Custom ROMs
Find the Marshmallow ROMs along with their download link below. Also linked is ROM’s development page, where you could find that ROM’s latest download link, current list of bugs (if any) and list of features and all other info about the ROM.
1. CyanogenMod 13 (CM13)
Note: The ROM is under testing BTW, as many things aren’t working as they are supposed to. The calls and sms are not working either, so it is hardly suitable as daily driver.
How to Install
Well, download the ROM of your choice from above first. Then check the link below to guide on installing a custom ROM.
Be sure to also download and install Marshmallow Gapps linked below as these contain Google Apps like Play Store, Maps, etc. that are missing in the ROMs by default.
