    I just updated my Galaxy S5 (stock, unrooted) device to MM throught OTA. I've had a few bugs (No SIM icon missing, and hitting back to cancel highlight on Chrome causing app to close) which persisted after factory reset, so I considerated the option of using Kies to reflash the custom ROM to the phone...

    Is Kies able to be used in that way? Will the ROM be a clean install or it's about the same to a default factory reset? Are there any risks in the process?

    Unfortunately guys will not allow you to restore or refresh the factory image. For that you would need to use a separate program called Odin and the appropriate factory image.

    I thought it really might just install over the old one...

    Thanks a lot mate, saved me some time there... Haha

    BTW, do you think reflashing (the same official 6.0.1 MM ROM) might do any good or I'm (WE really, since there's a lot of people in the same boat) probably facing build specific issues and should wait for a new patch?
