Hello, Coolpad Note 3 users it is great news for you that officially Marshmallow update has been released by Team Coolpad which has a better user interface and gives you a rich experience. We will discuss the new operating system and its bugs which are still present due to it being still in beta testing mode.
As I was a Beta user before the release of the marshmallow update officially, I can relate that there were many bugs present which has been fixed now to bring a stable ROM but still few present which will be fixed soon in the up coming updates.
The developers have worked tremendously to polish this update and as of now, you can either flash the stock ROM using TWRP recovery or by using SP Flash tools, whichever is convenient to you. The Coolpad Note 3 Marshmallow Stock Rom is based on Cool UI 8.0, and there are two variants of this ROM, the one being a pure stock ROM which is untouched and the other is pre-rooted.
