(Note: On Windows OS 8/8.1/10, you will need to disable driver signature verification.)

  • Download & move the firmware file to the flashtool folder (move the D6503_23.5.A.0.570_R2D.ftf to the location of Flashtool)
  • Now open Flashtool and click on Flash device->Flashmode. The D6503_23.5.A.0.570_R2D.ftfshould now appear on the list.
  • Then Check Wipe APPS_LOG and USERDATA (only if you want to perform a clean install if only want to upgrade then skip the step)
  • Now select Flash and follow the onscreen instructions. (If it asks to use a script, choose “No”)
  • Once the installation process is completed, reboot your phone and you should now be on the latest Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 firmware.
