    I have a galaxy s5 unlocked from at&t (g900a), unlocked with metropcs so i cannot recive updates from ota im still on 4.4.2. I consided flashing it with odin but cant find the appropriate file. All i can find is the ota file to update with external storage although it says it must be on android 4.4.4 does anyone have the ota file to update from external or the rom? Or have any advice on how to update it? It cant update with kies either because at&t doesnt allow it. Thanks for any help in advance!

    Try the AT&T S5 forums on XDA Forums. Some of the developers there capture update files and post links to them.

    The AT&T model of the Galaxy S5, G900A, does NOT run stock Samsung firmware but rather, is a hybrid carrier version. See #1.6 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    Therefore, the AT&T firmwares are not available from SamMobile or Samsung Live, (with the exception of NCE, Android 4.4.2), and is not supported by the Samsung Kies PC Suite and unlike stock Samsung firmwares, if you switch carrier you will not receive the OTA updates.

    As Rukbat has suggested, the best bet is xda developers who can offer a .zip file of Android 5.0 that you can sideload. This is for competent users. Please read the following thread, carefully and thoroughly before proceeding...

    Thanks very much guys! I dont know why at&t makes things so difficult for us i really wish this was a tmobile s5! I guess I will just stay on 4.4.2 cause this phone is my life and i would be devestated if i bricked it.
