Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for the Galaxy S5 sent out by mistake yet again

Samsung recently conducted a beta test in which it allowed people with unlocked variants of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge to test a beta build of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. This beta program was not open to any other Samsung device but that didn’t stop the Marshmallow beta from being sent out by mistake first to a Galaxy Note 4 and then to a Galaxy S5. It appears that this has happened yet again, a lucky user in France has received the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update by mistake on the Galaxy S5.

The security patch date in this release is listed as “1 January 2016,” which indicates that this isn’t a build that’s meant for public release and it possibly may not even be final yet. No other device has received an update as yet with the January security patch. The user received this build on the Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) over-the-air and we can see from the screenshots that the firmware does look legitimate, it doesn’t appear to be a port of the firmware previously released in the beta test. Samsung has not yet revealed when it’s going to start releasing Android 6.0 Marshmallow for its handsets but many expect that it shouldn’t take more than a couple of months from now.

I find Samsung good … But the update policy is mistaken … The update must be come more frequently … Sam is lost user in next time, when this problem further exist. The other mobil producer is every time “up to date”.

Yeah…just mistakes,nothing offical,nothing serious,that’s how Samsung know to work at android develompent.It’s sad but it’s true.I’m thinking very serious to change my smartphone very soon because I was disappointed too much and that’s enough.All begin with SGS1(no android 4.0),SGS3(no android 4.4.2) and now with SGS5.

Samsung has very different FW from stock android and thats why it’s best… they cant givee u update fast because they have too much work to reprogram and optimize firmware for devices.. other brands are just adding applications and some little changes to fimware and samsung has modified whole firmware.. i have Galaxy S5 and i dont want 6.0… im using custom roms sometimes but still on kitkat because it has everything and with exposed im doing everything i want… when we will get MM update i will install only to test it for a week and after that i will downgrade to KK again..

Who, except you, is saying that this is done by mistake? You really think that Samsung is doing anything by mistake?
And for all others, that “hope” that Samsung will suffer the consequences of dissatisfied customers for not getting updates in timely manner, Samsung will continue to release updates last. It simply makes the best hardware, and you cannot expect to have everything, otherwise it would cost at least twice as now.

Mr. ABHIJEET M…… first thing is that Samsung’s Update service is very bad, samsung never thing about there old samsung’s phone users. if we compare other company like Motorola, HTC, LG and xiaomi this company have already released Android M for their old and new devices but what about samsung??? Samsung Always late and delay in their update.. if samsung do not grow up in their update service than it will be die in next few years..

Samsung is NEVER going to update “older” devices to the new touchwiz. That’s how they in a cheap way make you want to buy a new phone.

HTC, Sony and LG etc update their skins even on “older” devices.

This is not a mistake, I talked with a guy that works at samsung, he told me that 6.0.1 is releasing in selected markets for now and Next month Europe’s release will be 50% complete with the following markets: France, Switzerland, UK, Hungary, Sweden, Norway, Poland and more.

No .. it was not mistake ! … for real life usage tracking and server testing etc. Samsung publish the update for about 3 minutes and emloyee of samsung force download it and use it for some days to see that how update is working with 3rd party apps…and in that time if nay other perosn of non samsung try to force update them he will get success..thats the truth for all mistaked updates..as samsung has large no. Of users its possible that some one in world is doing the same work when the emloyee start to do…
As i think ….hahaha…do not take it seriously…

This is ridiculous. The Marshmallow update should be available for atleast samsung current flagship devices. On the other hand, htc one m7 and lg g3 (both are 2 years old flagships) are already on MM. So disappointed.

If there wasn’t a major design change then they won’t change it for Touchwiz (I’m guessing)

Your nick seems to be the same one that the source mentions. Have you considered a full wipe? Gets rid of most bugs. Can you upload your firmware if you do a fullwipe?

Mistake is something you commit only once or twice! These are done deliberately by Samsung :P I’m a Samsung lover btw!

So it’s almost official that no new touchwiz for both note 4 and s5 while cheaper phones like j series have it moving to nexus.

You can’t seriously be surprised? The normal thing is to update the phone maybe twice, then they drop support.

nado84
9 months 22 days ago

Then get a Nexus.

It’s something that will probably never change. Also, the J series came out with the new TouchWiz so that’s different, Samsung never brings new UI to older devices. It’s sad, but that’s how it is.

s2 has touchwiz from s3 so i think if sgs5 neo is on list to masrhmallow update, sgs5 also gets it

Cavalera90
10 months 15 days ago

Look at the screenshots, not the coverimage!! That one is a regular S5.

If they change the appearance to TW from the S6, I gonna switch back to stock. Because I am on a Sixperience S6/Note5 port right now and it is awesome.
