    I decided to quit waiting for the OTA. Since I'm rooted, I did a factory reset to get back to stock.

    I tried Kies. Got WMD_PROGRESS_CONTROLLER error. Didn't realize I had a WMD in there

    I had problems with ODIN connecting. So I put aside the ODIN update to Lollipop.

    Did another factory reset. Got an OTA notice. Thought I was home free - wrong.

    Got an error when running the OTA update with messages about PolarisOffice5.apk in the cache and the installed app location. I my have nuked that app with Titanium Backup a while back. If that is the case a factory reset isn't that complete.

    So now I keep getting the OTA update notice and it won't work.

    Sigh. I'll take a week off and try the ODIN update again.

    I found the .md5 file.

    It's inside a .rar file.

    Here is a link. I used the Alternative Odin Method

    It only took a few hours to reinstall all the apps that Google Play forgot to install. Argh.

    Finally licking some Lollipop.
