    So I recently performed a master reset of my Samsung Galaxy S4 because it froze upon turning on and wouldn't go past the AT&T logo. Actually after I did the reset that still didn't work so I took it to a Phone Tech place and they rebooted and fixed my phone. Before all this my version was Android 5.0.1, and after the reset and fix my current Android version is now 4.4.2. I went to settings, About, then Software update and twice now I get the "Software search interrupted, try again in 24 hours, no update available at this time" notice. So how can I go about updating back to Android 5.0.1? Will I be able to do it myself in the software updates eventually? If not how can I go about updating back to Android 5.0.1?

    Before you try flashing with Odin I would try updating from a computer using smart switch, seems to grab updates when over the air isn't working.

    Thanks ill learn about that as well. It seems like something I could do but a part of me is thinking about taking my phone back to my repair people. They found the software to reboot my phone back to Kit Kat I'm sure they can find Lollipop. I'd hate to muck up the fix myself.

    Also on my third attempt to update from Software Updates it's still unable to.

    Yeah this solidified my choice. However, I just went there today and they told me they couldn't find Lollipop. In fact when they fixed my phone the other day they said what took them the longest time to fix it was searching for an Android version that was compatible with ma phone, which I guess was KitKat. It's cool, like only a few apps don't work that did on Lollipop, but it's not world ending. I may try another place to see if they can find a version, or just not worry about it. Probably time to get something new, haha.
