Guide: How to Update the Galaxy S5 SM-G900T to G900TUVU1BNG4 4.4.2


Samsung as well T-Mobile support team always advises us to prepare the following important notes to consider before performing the software update.  I have also added some useful insights why you should follow this procedures to keep your  phone in safe.

Recharge the phone – You should make sure your device is fully recharged 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.

Backup important data – Even though it is not as always necessarily but if something might went wrong while taking the software update your  your important data is already in a safe place.  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 happened and it forces you to perform a factory data reset which basically wipes your phone’s memory.

Your Galaxy S5  is not rooted - Your device should not been modified or rooted, there is a certain circumstances that a modified and rooted Galaxy S5 SM-G900T 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‘ or “Your device has been modified Software update are not available” you should try to avoid that from happening.

How to Update to G900TUVU1BNG4 4.4.2 via Over-The-Air (OTA)


 This is usually how the carrier branded or locked Samsung Galaxy S5, performs a software update.  This method is Firmware Update through over the air or called as OTA update, which usually a notification message will directly sent to you from your network provider and from  Samsung. It simply notifies you that there is a new software update available to download.  If you did not received any notification messages you can manually check fro the update instead.  Doing this you may only tap on your Galaxy S5 SM-G900T Settings>>About Device, tap Software Update.

How to Update to G900TUVU1BNG4 4.4.2 Through Kies

The second method is a firmware update through Samsung Kies. You may head-over to your  local Samsung support page from where you can download Samsung Kies from there, and install it in your Windows or Mac computer. Choose the new Kies 3 which supports the Galaxy S5 SM-G900T and other Samsung devices running with Android 4.4.2 and up OS .  Once you installed Kies 3, all you need is connect your Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900T  to the computer using the USB cable, then simply run and follow Kies on-screen software update instructions.

Root G900VVRU1ANE9 Verizon Galaxy S5 SM-G900V OTA update, Towelroot works

Good news! For those who got a rooted Galaxy S5 SM-N900V before but now lose it after the OTA update G900VVRU1ANE9. You folks can still regain root even your Galaxy S5  now runs on G900VVRU1ANE9 4.4.2 update. Well, the very  good thing is that the previous G900VVRU1ANCG and G900VVRU1ANE9 have the same *aboot qfuse counter of "1"*,  it may sound so technical but it simply means that you can still be able to downgrade to the previous kernel version.  In addition, the root can be achieved only when you can revert back to G900VVRU1ANCG kernel version as *Geohot's Towelroot* only covers any software build that does not exceeds on June 3rd 2014.

Our fellas at XDA-developers have confirmed that root can be achieved on G900VVRU1ANE9 4.4.2 KitKat update with just some simple workarounds. All you need is install back the older kernel version then grab the *Towelroot*, then simply flash back the new G900VVRU1ANE9 4.4.2 kernel then you can have root again on Verizon Galaxy S5. It's so easy though, so read on.

1. Phone is acting 'special', Either a) apps take 5 minutes to install, or b) take 5 minutes to download (even the TiBU pro key which is 37 KB)
2. It took TiBU 5 minutes to ask for SU privileges.
3. Wi-Fi settings are being lost upon reboot, I have to keep inputting my WPA 2 key to get back on wifi.
Definitely don't recommend this route, and I'm afraid any patch to the stock NCG may have the same issue. This OTA also includes the "speed and stability" enhancements from the European variant G900, system RAM has decreased to 1.67 GB total. Hope this helps someone

"I attached the NE9 kernel to post#68. Flash that and you should be golden with root."

Freaking awesome muniz... just like you said, flashed the NE9 kernel and I'm golden!
Oh, Wi-Fi, play store and root auths are all good again too

Just got home from work - read through the thread and followed muniz_ri's instructions, and the only glitz I had was to restart the phone twice after flashing the NCG Kernel in order to get root. As FlairDevil mentioned, Towelroot "said" I had root when I didn't. But after the second restart, it worked. Then flashed the NE9 Kernel, reinstalled (from within the app) SafeStrap and I'm good to go!
Note: After first rooted in Stock NCG, SuperSU could not kill KNOX, so I left it alone. After everything was finished, I used SuperSU to kill KNOX and it worked. So I'm also KNOX free.
Now on to getting rid of all the bloat

Thank you to
misterxtc for the back to stock (using Odin) instructions and files
muniz_ri for the NE9 Kernel and figuring out the methodology to follow
open1your1eyes0 for the NCG Kernel and other valuable input
FlairDevil for testing, which saved all the rest of us the aggravation
and everyone else who posted today

You guys made my day

The process:


1. Take the OTA update NE9.

2.) You need to install back the NCG kernel.

3.) Re-root using towelroot.

4.) Re-install back or Flash the NE9 kernel.

Just head-over at XDA-developers original thread for the step-by-step instructions.

Make sure to give thank's to all of our XDA-Developers fellas for providing the necessary files and those who risk their devices as guinea pigs. Drop some word below if this work out for you, so others might also know.

Tips on How to Upgrade the Galaxy S5 SM-G900V to G900VVRU1ANE9 4.4.2 Software Update

Recharge the phone’s battery – You should make sure your device is fully recharged 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”.

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 happened and it forces you to perform a factory data reset which basically wipes your phone’s memory.
