Verizon Galaxy S5 Update G900VVRU2DPJ2 brings October & NovemberAndroid security patches

Verizon has pushed an OTA update on Galaxy S5 (SM-900V) to which came out as build version MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPJ2.
The latter isn't a Nougat update for the device but still in Android Marshmallow base. The update only contains and applies the new Android security patch for the month of October and November.  It is quite somehow similar to the previous update build version MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPG2 that also bears the September Android security patches.

In addition, this update is now the fourth Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update we've seen  on Verizon Galaxy S5 alone. This simply means that this device is still rocking around even though it's already succeeded by the Galaxy S6, and the Galaxy S7 for a quite sometime now.

What’s New:

  • October/November Android security patches

  • Optimize the device performance

  • Resolve known issues

How to Update Samsung Galaxy S5 G900V to Marshmallow 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 most often  a notification message will directly send out to you from your network provider and notifies you that there is a new update available for download.  If you did not receive any notification messages you can manually check for the update instead.  Doing so you may only navigate on your Galaxy S5 SM-G900V  Settings > System updates > Check for new system update.

  • Find “Software update”

  • Slide your finger down the display starting from the top edge of your mobile phone.

  • Tap the settings icon.

  • Tap System update.

  • Tap Check for new system update.

It will automatically tells you that a new update is available. You can simply tap install now when you want to perform an update or install later.

  1. My Phone sounds like i'm talking in a tunnel. How can i put these options back to how they were.

  2. The update gave me some setup switches after the update. The switches I learned to be the volume up and down keys. Now they only serve this new function, and I can't adjust the volume anymore. PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks.

  3. Hello, i got a galaxy s5 sm-g900v but i have a problem now with system updates
    Becuase i have a verizon phone in Bosnia, and i updated it always with Kies 3 program on pc,and now i can't anymore update it with kies, it says i should update with SmartSwitcj,but i can't installt it ..

  4. Anyone have for this OTA?

  5. I believe Verizon devices are no longer supported with Kies/Smart Switch for PC. You may try Verizon software upgrade assistant.

  6. Try to perform Wipe cache/factory data reset. Don't forget to create a backup of your stored data.

  7. yep I do have it.

    I bought my phone in the USA but live in Barbados, I do not get OTA updates I believe because my phone says SIM not recognize. I've missed about two updates since having this phone, how can I get my phone to update...current software is G900VVRU1ANI2.
