How to Update the Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900I to Official Android 5.0 Lollipop


Samsung always urge 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’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”. If this happens your device may just stuck on Samsung logo or welcome screen and can’t reboot normally.

Backup important data – 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.

Ensure that your Galaxy S5 should still runs on the official Lollipop released build version and hasn’t been rooted – Your device should not be modified or rooted, there is a certain circumstances that a modified and rooted Galaxy S5 SM-G900I 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.

Update 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 sent to you from your network provider or Samsung 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 this you may only tap on your Galaxy S5 SM-G900I Settings>>About Device, tap Software Update.
  • Find “Software update”
  • Slide your finger down the display starting from the top edge of your mobile phone.
  • Tap the settings icon.
  • Tap About device.
  • Tap Software 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.

Update Thru Kies / Smart Switch for PC


The second method is a firmware update through Samsung Kies or Smart Switch for PC. 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-G900I and other Samsung devices running with Android 5.0 Lollipop to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS .  Once you installed Kies 3, all you need is connect your Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900I to the computer using the USB cable, then simply run and follow Kies on-screen software update instructions.

We only spotted  this firmware build floating around at Samsung's public server to will be heading it's way for both unbranded and carrier branded Galaxy S5 SM-G900I in Australia and likewise to New Zealand.

While taking a quicker look at the build details G900IDVU1BOJ1 itself, it has the same kernel version to the previously released build G900IDVU1BOH4,  but however the baseband version has bumped up to G900IDVU1BOJ2. It may seems like just a minor software update, but it might include some global bug fixes, stability and security improvements.

Here are the details of G900IDVU1BOJ1:
  • Android version: 5.0
  • Kernel version: 3.4.0-5543425
  • Baseband version: G900IDVU1BOJ2

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-G900I 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.
