I am from Bangladesh and I own a N910C XME carrier. Still running kitkat and I desperately want lollipop. Most of the note4 users i know using 5.1.1 and here i didnt even get 5.0.1. I mailed them twice and all they say me is to be more patient. Samsung is really not treating their customers right. Please knock me if you have news on OTA. Dont want to root or use Odin. Thanks!

Guys, i just saw that sm-N910G has got the 5.1.1 Lollipop ROM ready for download & install now. In the ‘firmwares’ section. It only has it for Australian country, not even out yet in India, Singapore etc. Australia is usually the last to get it. I remember for 5.0.1, India got it very fast and we in Australia had to flash Indian 5.0.1 ROM hehe, now it’s reversed. I hope my eye’s aint playing tricks as im downloading it ASAP 🙂

Samsung still hasn’t released the UK BTU version of the Galaxy note 4 Android 5.1.1 update, even the carrier versions has it before the unlocked version, unbelievable!

I’ve been running 5.1.1 on my Note 4 (SM-910G) since the day after it was first released to the Nexus Player. CyanogenMod 12.1 is the shiznit. Give it a try!

Dan vraag ik 1 ding van Samsung. Haal de random reboots en de haperingen eruit waar het toestel blokkeert en niks meer wil doen. Dan ben ik al lang blij. Mag zelfs met een andere 5.0.1-update. I don’t really care.

I hope it is not another firmware number change & new theme to be used like the Lollipop 5.0.1

We need full active Lollipop the latest change in toggle, the new camera API 2 with RAW support & the new themes with other Galaxy S6 improvements.

not to forget battery life fix & for 32 bit or 64 bit matter I hope they activate 64 bit ability in Exynos version …………… that will be awesome.

I should smile to stay with 4.4.4 if more buggy on 5.0 but never in reality. My friends using old Sony and HTC are very happy Lollipop after months of experience. Why Samsung is very far behind these? I always want to taste the latest technology provided by Google. Yes, I can flash my Note 4 manually, but I dont want use other region code and dont spend time to back up and restore my data. I frequently use IR remote at home and office, but with 4.4.4. The phone need to be restarted each time before using remote otherwise… Read more »

I updated my Note 4 to Lollilop 2 months ago and the IR Blaster was woking rock solid, not as with Kitkat. But three days ago, the IR suddenly (no new app installed or phone drop happened) stopped working. It’s completely dead, at the point the led is not visible anymore when using an infrared camera. Don’t know if when Samsung “fixed” the driver, could at the same time put it in an overworked state that finally burned the IR Blaster. After using Samsung Smartphones for more than 6 years, this is the first big disappointment I have had, Note… Read more »

I don’t think so that they will enable 64-Bit in Note 4 !! Check XDA if they can, don’t hope that from Samsung !!

they have to because in my region i was forced to have the weaker exynos variant of note 3 and it didnt have HMP which is also said to be enabled in update while other variants had the strongers SD800 powered note 3 it also got many features that were not found in the 3G variant like 4k video recording and 4G support plus the better performance so i dont think they are gonna make the same fault with note 4 now because they will lose many consumers including me ofcourse so i wish if they will make it because… Read more »
