I'm sure we'll get the update out as soon as possible!

 

I will look into this on my side and will let you know if I have further news on the update for our customers.


Thanks,

As far as I can see - No version of the S5 sold in the UK has had an update to 5.1.1.

 

http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G900F/

 

Some regions are now getting a more recent build of 5.0, which may include the Stagefright fix, but that hasn't reached a UK carrier variant yet.

Re: Samsung galaxy s5 update to 5.1.1

Here is a link from 2 days ago.. Marshmallow Update coming for S5

Samsung Galaxy S5 Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Update Release Update, Plus Good News for Device Owners

But, Virgin will be last as usual..very consistent on that one.

It looks like virgin aren't even testing the next update for the S5..last as usual just like the last one..they probably just do this so people upgrade to fones running the latest update.

Re: Samsung galaxy s5 update to 5.1.1

Well, 5.0 is the version for all European models at the moment.

That said, there have been 3 important security updates since November. Virgin have not released any of them. All other UK networks have, the last being applied last week.

If you know what you are doing it is possible to change the firmware without rooting the phone. I run an ex Vodafone S5 on Three with Three firmware which gives me access to their 4G Supervoice. (VOLTE)

 Next update is Marshmallow  6.0.1
