Android 5.1.1 OTA being rolled out on T-Mobile for the S6 edge!

Unassuming Galaxy S6 edge users are in for a surprise, as T-Mobile appears to be rolling out a freshly cooked OTA based on Android version 5.1.1 Lollipop for the device. The catch, however, it is so far reported only on the T-Mobile network.

XDA forums user Sunderwear mentioned about the OTA a couple of hours back (at the time of writing this story). Urged by other users of the device, the poster also uploaded a video of his Galaxy S6 edge running the latest firmware. The video can be found at the end of this article.

As noted from the narration, the update also locks the bootloader on the device.

So, how many of you have already received the update? What do you think of it?

Guys, Why you freak out ?
Complain to Samsung about the Updates but please dont spam this here. S6 Edge has nothing to do with updates for Note4 etc

How is this device getting 5.1.1 when half on samsung devices are still on 4.4.4 kitkat only few devices on lollipop which samsung produced.

The build date above is 28th april so how long does it take you samsung to make it for all devices.

Even though I love & live Samsung, here are some of my major disappointments with the new Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge. 1. NO MHL 3 to HDMI support. 2. NO USB 3 / 3.1 & USB type C. 3. NO user replaceable Battery. 4. NO Micro SD card slot. 5. NO IP67 Dustproof or waterproof. 6. NO Glove mode for increasing touchscreen sensitivity. 7. NO LED indicator notification MENU. Just On or Off option. 8. Smaller Battery 9. Another Drawback / Con is increased length of the phone. Its 143+ mm, while the S4 was very compact in… Read more »

hello. Sunderwear here but disregard the different name..anyways for some reason I was lucky enough to get the OTA file this morning..since phone was not rooted at all I was unable to pull the update file but as of right now there’s some people working on custom roms based on this new firmware. Right now i’m using the phone but cfroot breaks the phone at the moment.need to wait for Chainfire to update for 5.1.1. Also yes i did a couple of factory resets and google asked for the associated gmail account to continue.

See, this policy is what’s going to get samsung down more than anything else. Note 4 customers still wait for the buggy 5.0.1 while s6 gets 5.1.1 OTA a day after build date! It makes to the tech news and customers buy more S6 units, more money. But the thing is, existing customers are really upset. And word of mouth is the best marketing.

exactly. I do love my note 4, it’s hardware and the display are awesome. But the software is buggy, even the recents panel takes more than 2 seconds to load. I have been with Samsung for more than 5yrs starting with the original galaxy s, and the note 4 is the last one. Since iPhones have a bigger display, hoping to get a one next yr

Will this have Google activation lock with these phones via the 5.1 update? . Although I currently use reactivation lock on my devices. Hope this is secure as I’ve seen bypass videos, which concerns me.

Well I’ve got an edge from TMO. I got it on the 30th of march. No update to 5.1.1 for me. … I’m skeptical of this

The lad who got the OTA reports that he was able to downgrade the bootloader only and was able to flash TWRP again. Please update the article before people freak out. 😀

As he’s the only one who’s got the update let’s hope they realized bootloader was locked by mistake, they then took it down to correct it? I hope.

I was very sceptical, but I asked him to put the youtube video up and he does within minutes. Sammobile also taking us they have early build of 5.1 they’re testing on the edge. Could Samsung be finally getting their act together when it comes to updates?
