Samsung Galaxy S5 starts getting Android Lollipop update in South Korea

Samsung surprised us all by starting the rollout of the Lollipop update for the Galaxy S5 yesterday, with Poland the first country to receive the best version of Android yet. Now, Samsung has started rolling out the update in its home country – the update is pushing out to all major carriers in South Korea, namely KT, SK Telecom and LG Uplus, and is available over the air, through Samsung Kies, and also via our firmware section. The build number is G900KKTU1BNL2 for all three carriers, and the feature list is expected to be the same as that of the European variant of the Galaxy S5.

That includes an overhauled user interface with Google’s new Material Design intermixed with Samsung’s TouchWiz UX, lockscreen notifications, increased performance thanks to the switch to Android’s new ART runtime, better battery life, improved fingerprint recognition, redesigned Samsung apps, and a new clipboard tool that keeps track of all copied data and captured screenshots. Expect the update to start making its way to other regions over the next few weeks.

Firmware Details:

  • • Model: SM-G900K
  • • Model name: GALAXY S5

Same ‘bugs’ seen here as other. Sluggish UI at times, fast battery drain, Latest FB from Play store hangs every time. Version 24.0.0.0.1-5467793 mini api works Ok most of the time. Reasonably stable. Pinning and prioritisation of notification not available. I’m tight on system memory which may be contributing to lagging. Has anyone tried a full wipe and clean install. My ODIN load retained all previous setting. TBH I expected some of these issues, might try a clean install and see if matters improve.

Just heard from a source at Samsung that they will have to do a re-release in Poland and Korea. This slows the rest of the releases down.

I think it will be on the Middle of December or January as Samsung is trying its very best to tailor out the bugs before the global rollout

I agree. This is very poor soft… at the beggining it looked it’s gonna be smoking hot… but after few days I am very disappointed… Facebook permanent crash, lags… missing some features eg. notification of incoming stuff on the locked screen with fingerprint pass. You always need to unlock it to see… :/

Do you think I can downgrade to 4.4?

P.S. on my wifes S5 FB is working…

Hello,

to show the notifications on the lock screen, you’ve to do this:
1. Go to Settings -> Sounds & Notifications
2. Scroll down to the last section: Notifications
3. Tap on ‘When Locked’ and select ‘Show all content’ or ‘Hide sensible content’

Now you should see the notifications when the screen is locked.

To solve heart rate monitor issue, uninstall Google Fit application. Helped in my case 🙂

Uninstall and reboot phone

It’s not necessary to uninstall Google Fit. You only need to disable ‘Activity detection’ in Google Fit settings and then reboot the phone. This worked for me.

I wonder how long before the LTE-A (SM-G906) variant gets the upgrade… thats the version the S5 was meant to be.

alastairgreen_Nexus

it will be the next

There were various reports (on Dec 5th I believe) saying that Lollipop would hit other devices, such as Note 4 and Galaxy S5 LTE-A would be getting the update next year… which would be strange.

Hopefully the roll out of Lollipop to the S5 will hurry things up. I see little reason why the S5 LTE-A variant would have to wait until next year.

as far as i know the[ S5 LTE A G906/S/K/T ] is awaiting the upgrade to lolpop which sammy is working on at the moment, so hopefully the beggining of next year 😉
just have to sit tight! o_0 and wait 😉

One few things samsung failed to comprehend despite overwhelming review and statistics are matter about their touchwize and software update. Specially if software update were regular and prompt like LG, HTC samsung would be able to gain some of its lost customer confidence. But no benefit of telling samsung these things. They do not understand the most obvious things.
