Update Galaxy E5 E500H to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with Unofficial CM13 Custom ROM

Samsung Galaxy E5 E500H can now be installed with unofficial CM13 Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow custom ROM. Where 6.0 Marshmallow seemed like a dream, developers have come in to port CM13 to the Galaxy E5. This build comes from jackeagle at XDA who has successfully put out a running version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This unofficial custom ROM carries over the same CM13 source code you would find on any other phone which is officially supported. CyanogenMod itself will grant verified support for the E5 very soon thanks to this new custom ROM. Despite Android 6.0 Marshmallow being an upgrade in itself, CM13 offers some distinct features like a theme engine built-in along with customization options seldom found anywhere else. You can update Galaxy E5 E500H to Android 6.0.1 CM13 Marshmallow custom firmware using the tutorial below. This is not an official release by Samsung, but just a custom ROM which would require a custom recovery like ClockworkMod in order to flash the ROM zip and Google Apps zip files on your phone. Your Galaxy E5 E500H should be rooted and have a custom recovery installed.

Backup and Other Important Tips

Done with the USB drivers? Perfect. The tutorial is on the next page, but first, please take a look at the following tips and important points you need to take care of. These are important, as we don’t want anyone losing their personal data or apps:

Always backup your important data that you might need after you install a new custom ROM, an official software update or anything else. Make a backup for just in case, you never know when anything might go wrong. See below for some tips on how to backup data:

Samsung users can also back up data using Samsung KIES. If you backup data manually, you get more options what to choose from and it is very easy to move data across Android devices from different manufacturers, i.e moving Samsung Galaxy Note backup data to HTC One X.

If you already have a custom recovery (ClockworkMod, TWRP etc.) installed on your phone, we strongly recommend a backup using that as it creates a complete image of your existing phone set up.

A few more optional tips that you should remember:

1. Having problems connecting your Android phone to the computer? You need to enable USB debugging mode. See here: How to Enable USB Debugging — for Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean.

2. Make sure your Android device is charged up to 80-85% battery level. This might help you: How to Check Battery Percentage. Why? Because, if your phone goes off suddenly while installing a custom ROM, flashing an official firmware update or installing mods etc. — your phone might get bricked or go dead permanently. No one wants that, right?

4. Most of the tutorials and how-to guides on Team Android are for factory unlocked Android phones and tablets. We recommend NOT to try our guides if your phone is locked to a carrier, unless we have specified the carrier name or device model.

All set and ready? Good. Now, let’s proceed with the tutorial on the next page and update Galaxy E5 E500H to Android 6.0.1 CM13 Marshmallow custom firmware.
