    According to Northern.dj, you should be able to get the new OD3 update for BTU, either OTA or via Kies.

    Wroung wrong wrong
    Just because you have flashed a BTU rom only means the CSC is out of sync
    KIES yes Kies will fix this
    Open tools up and it's firmware update and reanitiolisation plug in your phone and it will re download the btu firmware and change the CSC to btu
    I have done six Vodafone S5 phones and you then get updates

    @Northern.dj I did just as you mentioned here, Launched Kies>Tools>Firmware and reanitionalisation, plugged in phone and followed the steps on screen. Had to enter model and serial numbers, warned that all data will be wiped etc. Then it said to disconnect phone, remove battery and replace then boot holding down power, volume down and home button. Did this. On computer progress stuck at 63% but phone carried on as normal and rebooted fine. Now I have all of the vodafone apps back!!! Clearly something didn't go as planned?? Any advice?

    Rooting. If that's possible - Vodafone may have made it impossible to unlock the bootloader

    We don't have locked bootloaders on the international, G900F, phone. Only the U. S. carriers insist on that.

    Kies did exactly what it was supposed to do under the circumstances described by Northern.dj, and reverted you back to the phone's internal CSC code's, VFR, firmware for Vodafone UK's latest release, NL9. I don't know how he managed it with 6 Vodafone S5's!!!

    You will need to repeat the process you did before and download the new OD3 firmware from SamMobile and fash it via Odin. You will need, as per my Dummies Guide, mentioned in an earlier post, to do this for every update as you will no longer receive updates via Kies or OTA, as you have now found out.

    Yeah, just checked and it's the one I just flashed. Have to say that [touch wood] this time I'm actually somewhat impressed by the job they've done with 5.0. Still let's wait a few days before doing cartwheels...

    There's no fix for the sign in request on gallery though! Which is a shame.

    Downloaded it, looks good. Now I have photos on my SD card, Gallery, Picasa, Google drive and QuickPic, can be very confusing :-/

    To get Kies to fix the CSC the phone has to be plugged in and connected first
    The warning will show the current firmware and the initiolised on will be VOD click next it will then as you do you want to inistialise the current installed firmware click ok and bingo it Re instals the BTU firmware if you click cancel it will then re instal the first rom eg VOD

    Now if you go down the route of doing this with out the phone plugged in then it will re instal the curent VOD rom
    I have just updated my phone via Kies
    You must have the right firmware i use 4.4.2 the Last one on Sammobile i do not use Lollipop

    Go to Gallery > Menu (3 dots) > Content to display and select which content you want in your Gallery.

    Alternatively, you can hide the Gallery type apps that you do not want to show in your app drawer as per #1.9 of S5 Lollipop Update Problems - Dummies Guide

    I'm no longer encumbered by a Samsung S5. The fingerprint scanner stopped working so I sent it back for a refund and bought a Sony Expiria Z3 which runs Android 5.0.2, and with aplomb I might add ;-)
