Update to G900HXXU1ANE2 4.4.2 via Over-The-Air (OTA Update)


There are two types you can update your Samsung Galaxy S5 the first method is firmware update through over the air or called as OTA update, which usually a notification message will directly sent to you and saying that there is a new update available for download. You can also tap on your Galaxy S5 SM-G900I  Settings>>General tab, scroll to and tap System Update. It will automatically tells you that a new update is available or your software is up to date when there is none yet. You can simply tap install now when you want to perform an update or install later.

You may head-over to your local Samsung support page from where you can download Samsung Kies from there, and install it (guide for installation) in your Windows or Mac computer.

Once you installed Kies 3, all you need is connect your Galaxy S5 to the computer using the USB cable, then simply run and follow the Kies on-screen software update instructions.

Important Things you should do first before Performing a Software Update


According to Samsung you should prepare the following things before performing the software update. I will also add some useful insights why you should follow this procedures.

You should make sure your battery is fully charged before performing the software update. Do not also remove the battery during the software update is in progress. A power failures may cause damaged to your device that might results as we so-called “soft-bricks”. If this happens your device may just stuck on Samsung logo or welcome screen and can’t reboot normally.
You should back-up your important files, including contacts, emails, messages, photos, videos, apps and other stuff. Like I said while during software update process is interrupted there is a possibility that your data stored from your device internal SD card may lose or deleted when a sudden unexpected failure happens and it forces you to perform a factory.

Your device should not been modified or rooted, there is a certain circumstances that a modified and rooted Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900H may not accept any official software update anymore or it can accept an update but it might harm your device once the update has made. Learn about the new Samsung KNOX security suite. Most known error that says ‘firmware upgrade encountered an issue, please select recovery mode in kies and try again‘ you should try to avoid that from happening.
