Note: This stock firmware is compatible for all unbranded or unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with the specification model number “SM-G925I″ version only.

Step-1: Grab the tools you may need for flashing the G925IDVU2COGA 5.1.1 stock firmware.

– Odin3_v3.10.6 Flasher tool (find it here)

– Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge USB driver, find the Android 5.0.2/5.1.1 USB driver version here.

Step-2: Prepare these things as follows

– Use a PC or laptop that runs in Windows OS, with a good and perfectly working USB serial port.

– Use the USB data cable for your Galaxy S6 Edge.

– Make sure to have your Galaxy S6 Edge battery fully recharge.

– Back up all important files stored from your phone’s internal memory – contacts, messages, etc. Use Samsung Smart Switch for PC to back up and restore your files. .

– Enable USB debugging from your phone’s settings. Go to Settings > Applications > Development, and tick the box that says ‘Enable USB Debugging’.

– Do a “Hard Reset” if you have a lot of 3rd party applications installed from your phone, this is useful to gain a smooth flashing. (Just make sure that you already back up all your important files before resetting your device.

Step-3: Extract or unzip the downloaded stock firmware

The downloaded stock firmware is a compressed packed, you need to de-compressed it first so that you’ll get the Odin flashable .tar.md5 file.

Step-4: Run and Configure Odin

Run Odin downloader on your computer’s desktop. Watch out the check-boxes options on the right top of Odin, ensure that the ‘RE-PARTITION’ is unchecked. Leave the ‘AUTO-REBOOT and ‘F.RESET TIME’ remains checked.

Now, click on the AP button, then select and load the tar file that you have previously extracted.Here’s how Odin should look like.The “G925IDVU2COGA_G925IXSA2COGA_G925IDVU2COGA_HOME.tar.md5″ should be loaded on the AP button.

Step-5: Reboot the Galaxy S6 Edge in Download Mode

To set your Galaxy S6 Edge in download mode, just simply switch it off then gently press and hold the “POWER, VOLUME DOWN and HOME” buttons simultaneously. You’ll be then prompted in a warning screen to continue or cancel.

Step-6: Connect the Phone to the Computer or Laptop

Once the phone screen shows in downloading mode, connect your phone to the PC with the USB cable. You’ll then notice the upper box in Odin that turns in yellow color., it also indicates the COM:ID where the device is being detected and a word “added!!’ on the log box. If somehow those things never showed up, check out the USB cable connection, read again from the top of this post.

Step-7: Flash it!

Once all set and ready just hit he “START” button to begin flashing.

Do not touch anything that might interrupt the process to avoid any fatal errors or failures, it may ruin your device if any interruption occurs while already in flashing status.It may only takes about 3 to 5 minutes, depend of your PC/laptop speeds. A word “PASS” will display in Odin once it finishes. If somehow you will not get the word “PASS” or just stuck in a long time. Disconnect the phone, check the USB connection, re-install the driver and disable Kies. Set the phone in Download mode again, and repeat the whole procedure.The phone will just automatically reboots if the firmware flashing successfully completes. Just wait until it boots up on the “Samsung” logo for a while then into an android update screen. If it still shows boot logo try rebooting and if it stays there, you need to wipe your phone.

Fixing possible issues after flashing like bootloops or just stuck in welcome screen logo.

This problem may only happened if your Galaxy S6 Edge is previously rooted or runs on modified and non-Samsung firmware. You may try to resolve it by booting the device in recovery mode – Press and hold Volume Up, Home and Power button. Use volume keys to select up and down and power or home key to select the option.1. Select Wipe Data/Factory Reset

2. Next select the Wipe Cache Partition.

3. Lastly select Reboot System Now to reboot your Galaxy S6 Edge in Normal mode.
