[Port] Galaxy S7 Apps and features for Galaxy S6 and Note 5

One of the most attention-grabbing phones of the year is the Samsung Galaxy S7, which is advertised for its Long-lasting battery power, Stunning performance, Great Camera and much more. The S7 is equipped with the custom TouchWiz OS by Samsung which is based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. On the other hand, Samsung’s last year’s flagship (Galaxy S6) and Galaxy Note 5 also received Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Here you’re with some Galaxy S7 Features we don’t get with official Marshmallow update on Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5.

This apps are mainly for Galaxy S6 with Android 6.0.1 (apps compatible with Lollipop will be written) and all other Galaxy updated officially to Marshmallow (Note 5, S6 Edge Plus and Edge for now).

Remember to delete arm folder if you copy manually the files and you’re on a ODEX (Stock TouchWiz) ROM, and read below how to set correct permissions for Folders, APKs and Libs.

  1. Right permissions for “FOLDERs” are “rwxr-xr-x”
  2. Right permissions for “APKs” are “rw-r–r–” 
  3. Right permissions for “LIBs” are “rw-r–r–” (same as apks) 

Tips : Use “ES File Explorer” to set right permissions. Using ES File root explorer may make your process easy.
