    Still waiting for 5.1.1 here in the US on Verizon's network too. I really hope they push the 6.0 update to the Galaxy S5, but I'm not getting my hopes up, considering the S5 is almost two generations behind.

    S5 and Note 4 should be included as per various leaked time lines for the 6.0 update.

    That's awesome if it's true. Was there any rumored date of the update?

    Samsung forgotten the SM-G900H. Last time i got 5.0 is 1 year ago, and last update which only adds smart manager is 4 months ago. They showed no love for exynos versions.

    The snapdragon international or SM-G900F is said to be receiving the 6.0.1 at april, which means the SM-G900H will get around may-july.

    It's not Samsung at fault for the updates. As @Ironass posts all the time, Samsung has been updating the international, no carrier version a LOT in the last several months.

    99% of the time, the reason why you don't get updates to your phone is because your CARRIER has not done one. When you purchase from a carrier (whether it's locked or unlocked), you are at their mercy for your firmware updates. Samsung gets the code from Google, your carrier gets the code from Samsung, then has to test it on their system and add their own software, bundle it up and send it out... there is really nothing in it for the carriers at all to update your phone so they don't "waste their time" doing so.

    I have just learned to be patient - 6.0 is coming for the GS5 sometime this year. Call and yell at your carrier.

    But the SM-G900H is a non carrier branded device. Its international exynos model for countries that does not support 4G back then.

    So the SM-G900H will receive update directly from samsung. But samsung decided not to put effort to update it.

    I'm still waiting with Sprint.

    Notwithstanding the fact that the S7 is almost here, it would be odd that our update were being held up for that reason. While I was using my first Android device, a shockingly limited LG Optimus, the updates seemed to come one after the other. I think it was still on Froyo when I first got it, then Gingerbread, ICS, and JB all succeeded each other fairly quickly.. All this happened in just over a year, since my carrier decided to throw me a treat and let me upgrade to a decentish Galaxy model at about that time. Of course, I was always keeping the Optimus rooted and running custom ROMs, so that might have been another factor.

    With the S5 I've usually run into problems when trying to run a custom ROM, so I've pretty much stopped doing it.

    ETA: My wife has the even earlier S4 and I believe she's up to 5.0.1. Not that that's a huge upgrade, but it's something.

    Android 5.1.1 is soooo last year! (literally )

    I have been on stock Samsung Marshmallow, Android 6.0.1 for nearly 2 weeks now.

    Samsung have, as they did with the ill fated Android 4.4.4 release, chosen to bypass it in their international models in favour of Android 6.0.1, Marshmallow. The fact is, if you were to get an Android 5.1.1 release now, you would be waiting a lot longer for Marshmallow. To-date, only a few carrier branded models have opted for Android 5.1.1. AT&T, Canadian carriers and T-Mobile (USA).

    Samsung are close to rolling out Android 6.0.1 as my early release stock Samsung firmware for the unbranded worldwide, international, model, G900F, on CSC code OXA and Product code BTU, (United Kingdom, unbranded), shows in this video...


    (Thanks to MixTech for the video, here)

    For more information about your model of Samsung Galaxy S5, CSC and Product codes, see #1.8 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide.

    If you have the G900F model of Samsung Galaxy S5 and did not receive the, now withdrawn, pre release version of Android 6.0.1, Marshmallow, for CSC code OXA and Product code BTU, (United Kingdom, unbranded), or, you have a different CSC and Product code on your worldwide, international, G900F and want to try it and do not mind voiding your warranty or future updates via OTA or Kies/Smart Switch, (see warning in #1.11 of the aforementioned guide), an Odin flashable .tar version has been created of Android 6.0.1, Marshmallow, here. This is for competent users. Please read the thread carefully and thoroughly before proceeding.

    So... who still wants Android 5.1.1?

    Hey Ironass, helpful as usual

    If I follow the link and install what's in the first link posted in that OP (before DevBase and Experimental Builds) will it still void my warranty /trip knox?

    And yes I've got a G900F international version but my CSC: is XFV (South Africa).

    If it doesn't trip knox it possible to go back to my currently official build (xxu1boj1) from the 6.0.1 build?

    The answer is... I don't know for sure, as I received my update directly from Samsung on my U.K. phone, BTU, which obviously would not trip Knox. You would do better searching or posting on the xda developers forum with that question. I can tell you that it is possible to revert to Android 5.0 by doing an FDR and re-flashing your stock Samsung Lollipop firmware. Alternatively, wait until Marshmallow is out for your CSC & Product code and flash it over the U.K. release.

    I have the G-900F XSG and still on Android 5.0. I really hope they skipped the 5.1.1 version, just to release the next 6.0 marshmallow version.

    Really loving the new Marshmallow, Android 6.0.1, firmware!

    After receiving the update from Lollipop to Marshmallow I did what I always do on updates of this magnitude and performed a Full Wipe+Factory Data Reset as per #2.3, #2.4 and #2.5 of S5 Lollipop Update Problems - Dummies Guide. I checked out the phone before downloading my apps but not the settings as those saved settings would be for Lollipop. Finally, I loaded on all my music, photos and data. By updating in this fashion I was then confident that any issues that may occur would not be, as so often is the case, because of detritus from my old Lollipop setup. Having said that, I have not experienced any problems whatsoever since updating.

    Marshmallow is fast and very, very, good on battery life. Particularly with the new Doze feature that conserves battery whilst the phone is resting.

    IMHO, Marshmallow is not as big an update as Lollipop was but rather, it is the icing on the cake.
