    Would it help to take out my SD card before I do this update? I've been delaying the update every morning since it originally popped up so I could see what people said about it, but I don't know how long I want to keep doing that. Almost all of my apps and info are on my SD card so wiping it out would be upsetting.

    Initially...as you can read above, none of my SD card apps were accessible. After about 20 minutes or so, they eventually were initialized and accessible. Perhaps I was just a one-off...I don't see any other reports of that issue here

    I left my sd card in and did the update (which was a security update). After phone rebooted I did a cache partition wipe. I had no issues what so ever.

    I wiped the app cache and partition cache - still took some time for my SD card apps to initialize..I keep all the apps that I can on the SD card

    Just a security patch? For stagefright they pushed out the patch a couple of months ago right? Does anybody know if this breaks root?

    Nevermind it does patch root. Downloading the rooted stock rom now!
    If I take this update, is the only way to regain root to download a rooted stock rom? I'm not looking forward to having to redo everything on my phone again.

    I just did the update as well (late last week) and have an issue... can't post a link due to being a newbie. Only a few additional posts down from this one.

    Fortunately nothing is worse after my update. I'll still plagued with drop calls despite seemingly fine signal strength. I have always thought it is one of the verizon apps I can't uninstall. When my update rolls around what are the best Android options with verizon?

    Yes to keep root you have to flash a rooted rom. I like to keep mine stock so i flashed the stock rooted rom by muniz_ri who is a recognized senior member at XDA. And as far as i know there isn't a way to root after BOD5 update and you can't downgrade to a rootable build. So if you're up to date right before this patch ( BOK3) then don't take any OTA updates. Use FlashFire to flash and i did a full wipe on my phone because it was time for me to do one. I do a wipe every 6-7 months to get rid of all the junk that builds up over time. I did mine about a week ago and i have zero issues.

    There is a tutorial by muniz_ri here

    Thanks, Nuwan - I'll skip this update for now and regroup in a handful of months once Marshmallow becomes available. Thanks!!

    Have you done a factory reset on your phone? It's always a good idea to do a hard factory reset after any major update and it fixes a lot of things. When 5.0 first came a lot of people had problems like battery life and their phone running hotter than before. A factory reset was the fix to a lot of those problems. And if you're rooted wipe the Dalvik cache also.

    My upgrade went fine. 15 minutes start to finish; battery went from 98% to 81%. 398 apps; many on SD card, all seem to work so far. No need to clear cache or do anything else.

    I feel darn lucky!
