    Hello and welcome to Android Central ian duncan!

    You are on, currently, the latest version released for the UAE.

    You can either wait for a Lollipop release for your CSC code, OJV, for the UAE or you can download and flash the latest OD3 firmware as per post #28, above. This has a European language pack that includes English but not Arabic.

    Definitely not!

    You forgot to mention that you are an octa core phone with an Exynos chip as opposed to a quad core with a Qualcomm chip and a Mali GPU and not an Adreno. You are on OCA, the 10th build of March 2015, so you are pretty much up-to-date for your model.

    I've literally become addicted to reading his posts; even if the subject may not interest me. I've learned a great deal from him.

    Sorry for going off-topic like this, I just had to get that off my chest.

    Thanks, ironass. Just know that you are helping more people than the ones who post here.

    I managed to get my unlock codes and successfully unlocked my Globe locked phone.
    - Installed UK OD3 just like a breeze Success! Bye bye branding and bloatware

    I also installed on my OJV S5 G900F from the UAE with no problems

    Will be monitoring performance and bugs (If any) with this new update.

    Without wishing to rain on Sprint, G900P, owners parade, the latest OD3 update is far from the legendary OD3 update that the international, G900F, users are having pushed to their phones, by Samsung.

    Sure, they are both labelled OD3 but that only means the 3rd build of April, 2015 for that particular model. See, #1.9 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide.

    However, since it takes around 6 -> 8 weeks to get a heavily carrier branded, minority variant firmware released, it seemed unlikely that Sprint's OD3 would be based on the OD3 release described in post #1

    Furthermore, from this thread and others on the web, it seems that there were certain issues present in Sprint's OD3 build that are not present in the international OD3 version.

    Thanks to some clever detective work by systemofadown1 on here, who tracked down the all important changelist # for this ;latest Sprint release, my suspicions were confirmed.

    The Sprint changelist # for their carrier branded OD3 release is #4631307 which includes all the changes, around 300,000 -> 500,000, required for carrier bloatware which is not present on the international OD3 update that has a changelist number of #4664691 which is considerably higher due to the improvements and enhancements added to this build.

    Bearing the above in mind, this puts Sprints latest version of Lollipop on a build of around February's OB7 release for the international model, changelist #4209230, which went a long way to correcting a lot of the issues from the initial Lollipop releases and was, IMHO, the first usable build for Lollipop.

    For any doubters out there, just look at the changelists in post #1 of Lollipop release. Massive update!!! for the OC4 build for AT&T, #4432708, and the OC4 build for Verizon on changelist #3846539. There is a world of difference between these 2 releases.

    The bottom line is that I am afraid that you cannot compare or expect the improvements and enhancements of the international OD3 build but the Sprint build is currently way ahead of all other U.S. and Canadian carriers and should, consequently, offer a much higher customer satisfaction rating.

    Any problems found with it so far?

    Do exactly what it says in the link provided...

    "#1.8. Your FIRMWARE

    To locate your current firmware version, (not baseband/modem), go to the dial pad and type in...

    *#1234#

    This will give you your, "Version", details in full, usually 3 lines of information which are all relevant. The important one to note in this case is the first, "AP:", (a.k.a PDA), detail. This is important because, as previously mentioned, some models have had a number of updates and improvements to their original firmware."

    The Note 3 OD3 release is NOT the same as the S5's OD3 release! It just means the 3rd build of the month of April for that particular model. See #1.9 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    and in sammobile the latest firmware for my carrier is OB5
    Who is your carrier and what is your country???

    An update from Samsung includes bugfixes, features and enhancements for Lollipop.

    As you seem unable to post your country and carrier or version details, as per posts #68 and #70, I cannot comment on whether there is likely to be an update from Samsung in the near future.
