    Hi there, I recently purchased a SCL23 (which I believe is the Japanese version of the Galaxy S5. I was previously running 4.4.2, and today have 'upgraded' to the 5.0 Lollipop (manual update using Odin). Since doing that, the device no longer recognises my SIM card, and keeps asking me to insert a SIM, despite the fact there is obviously one in there. I am worried that it may be 'bricked' so any advice whatsoever would be hugely appreciated.
