Sprint rolling out January security patch for the Galaxy S5

Less than a month after it started distributing the December release, Sprint has today started rolling out this month’s security maintenance update for its carrier-branded variant of the Galaxy S5 in the United States. The upgrade weighs in at a little over 27MB and bundles fixes for 67 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the Android OS, in addition to 28 exclusive patches for Galaxy devices.

In typical fashion, this release (firmware version: G900PVPS3CQA2) is being distributed in stages. To see if the OTA is ready for your unit, simply head into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive a notification prompting you to install the update, but you’ll need to have at least 50% of battery to act on the alert.
