About Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update has been long-anticipated by many different device users, but what exactly does the update do for us? Read ahead to learn just a few things that the update can do for you.

  • Marshmallow Gives Quick Answers
    Android 6.0 Marshmallow users can now tap to receive information and answers for any questions they may have. For example, simply tap the restaurant name your friend has texted you, and directions will pop up for you instantly. How convenient!

  • Marshmallow Improves Battery Life
    This OS upgrade will allow you to save your battery life. Android 6.0 Marshmallow puts your phone to sleep when it is not in use, even when apps are open, allowing it to conserve battery life.

  • Marshmallow Changes the Accessibility Game
    Android 6.0 Marshmallow permits you to individually allow (or disallow) each app’s access to your phone and its information. If you do not want an app to have access to your pictures, you can turn off the accessibility in your settings. All accessibility for any apps can be turned on or off at any time.

  • Marshmallow Is More Secure
    The new OS has recently allowed for a more secure phone by incorporating fingerprint recognition. Now, instead of inputting a password, phone owners can unlock their devices by using their fingerprint.

  • Marshmallow Makes The World More Available For Everyone
    Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now more accessible for everyone. This upgrade is available in over 74 languages. This upgrade also introduces the convenient feature called Translate, which allows you to translate a body of text from one language to another with the simple tap of your finger. Android 6.0 Marshmallow makes the world more accessible, no matter which language you speak!

Now that you have decided that Android 6.0 Marshmallow is for you, it is time to learn how to (unofficially) install it on your Redmi Note 4 device.

Risks
Because the CM13 is an unofficial firmware that is not associated with Google or Xiaomi in any way, it is crucial to know and understand the risks involved when dealing with an unofficial download.

  • Due to the download, it is possible that any information stored on your device can be lost.

  • Since you are downloading an unofficial ROM, you will lose any warranty deal associated with your device.

  • Your device is subject to bugs and issues after your unofficial installation of the update.

Here are a few helpful tips to insure a safe update for your device:

  • The CM13 firmware is only compatible with Redmi Note 4G. It will not work properly on other smartphones or even other Redmi devices.

  • Make sure your phone’s information such as pictures, videos and contacts are safely backed up, as this download and update could wipe your device’s memory clean.

  • Make sure that USB debugging mode is set to “on” on your device.

Initiate this update with a almost-fully charged battery, or with your device safely plugged in for power.
