Download Galaxy Tab 3 Marshmallow Update: CM13 and other ROMS

Want Marshmallow update on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 3? Well, Samsung can’t get you an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow just yet, or ever, but thanks to unofficial update available in the form of custom ROMs, you can have your Tab 3 run Marshmallow right away.

Marshmallow update was released back in October 2015, and that many popular devices are yet to see an upgrade shows that except of handful of premium devices, updates are not easy tog get on Android devices, at least officially.

For the Tab 3 Marshmallow update, you can install any custom ROM of your choice from below, but be sure to download the ROM that matches your tablet’s model no. under Settings > About tablet.

With the Android 6.0 update on your Tab 3, you will get the stock UI, Doze mode, better app data usage info and app control — all resulting way faster performance and approx 1/5th more battery life.

Marshmallow also brings Now On Tap feature in Google Now, that reads content on your screen to feed Google Now, which then sends suggestion based on that. It’s really incredible to use it.

The ability to have greater control over app permissions and their data usage is also why you will love Marshmallow update on Galaxy Tab 3.

What you need? Well, you will need to install a custom recovery like TWRP, PhilZ, CWM, etc. Get the Tab 3 PhilZ recovery here. If you can find and install any other recovery like TWRP, CWM, etc. then that would do too.

Installing the custom ROMs provided below will get you stock UI of Android, as Google designed it, and it’s far better than the TouchWiz UI Samsung overlaps stock UI with. Stock Android UI is far more charming and sweet than Samsung’s UI.
