It’s apparently clear that Galaxy S4 Mini (and its Duos variant, which is also covered here) won’t be receiving Marshmallow update from Samsung. That’s because device is too old to be supported with major software upgrades — especially that involve Android version change — and also because Galaxy S4 Mini wasn’t a flagship device anyway.

Thanks to custom ROM development scene that prevails so successfully in Android blogosphere, that there is an unofficial build of Marshmallow update available for Galaxy S4 Mini users. Yes, it has been already released, and even though it’s not from Samsung, it’s one promising installation for your S4 Mini.

We’re talking about Galaxy S4 Mini CM13 custom ROM, and also other ROMs based on AOSP. To install these custom ROMs you need a custom recovery like TWRP.

With 2GB RAM rocking on One M8, it would run Android 6.0 Marshmallow update pretty easily. Given tat CM13 and similar other custom ROMs are pretty lightweight, 2GB RAM won’t be less than enough for Marshmallow.

Required? To update Galaxy S4 Mini to Marshmallow 6.0 first you have to go through a custom recovery. So, first of all, install TWRP recovery for Galaxy S4 Mini. For more help on this, check the ‘How to install’ section below.
