Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

Everytime I check for the new update it keep saying that the current software is up to date. Very frustrating, does anyone have a download link for the 6.0.1 update.zip file?

Re: Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

Take it to a Best Buy that has a Samsung Sales Dept in it.  They should be able to Flash it.  Be sure you have about 3GB+ of Free space on phone.

Since your not a ATT customer you wont get updates.  ATT only updates phones FOTA(firmware over the air).  They have a IMEI check on the phones to see if you are on the ATT network.

Yes but that's the reason why I'm asking for the update.zip file, so I can install it like I did with 5.1.1

Re: Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

Att does not provide a update.zip for there updates.  You might find one elsewhere but not direct from ATT.

Re: Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

If I have an unlocked AT&T phone, can I root it (I guess it already is, that being the meaning of "unlocked", correct?), install a non-ATT Marshmallow OS and still use the AT&T network?  Actually, I'm buying a used Galaxy S5 and hope to use it on Cricket Wireless.  It has 5.something on it right now, and I'd like to update it.  But since I am not an AT&T customer it doesn't seem that there is an option to update it through AT&T (I'll check with Best Buy though).

 

Thanks for the help.

Re: Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

@PastorMRB Your best route is to take it to BB.

 

We don't officially support rooting up here, but I can say that you have to be very careful, whatever route you take here, as not all models are neccessarily "cross-compatible", in terms of firmwares.  You can brick a phone, if things aren't compatible.

Per @GLIMMERMAN76, you could probably find the correct version, but if you can simply have someone flash it for you, and avoid the stress/struggle.

Re: Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

I am having the same issue with the upgrade/update.   My Samsung galaxy S5 is still at 5.0.

SAMSUNG-SM-G900A.  I am in the US and with AT&T and each day I try the over the air update I too get the statement your software is up to date check back in 24hrs.

@lt401vette @jmurphy52

 

If you both are in the US take the phone to a samsung experience center in a best buy and they can flash it for you free of charge. 

 

@jmurphy52  If your on 5.0 your way way behind.

Re: Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

I am on 5.0 as well..

What other updates have they had?

 

I can flash it myself, but I would rather not loose everything on it.

Re: Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

I found this...

It appears AT&T hasn't been giving me updates for a long time.

Now the question is why?

Re: Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

AT&T is the most unsupportive company! Now that I know I've terminated my contract and removed all my information that they have about me. I'm now with T-mobile ❤

Re: Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update

So much for going to Best Buy or an AT&T store.. 

Best Buy said they weren't equipped to update it

AT&T told me I had to go to Samsung...
