S5 G900fd update

I have s5 (ap-g900fdxxu1b0e2, cp - g900fdxxu1b0e1, csc - g900fd0jv1b0c3). "About device" says 5.0. Is an update available ? When I run an update check, it says no. I'm specifically looking for an update that will allow my apps ie Wps, to write directly to the sd card. Thanks

Hello and welcome to Android Forums AC Question!

There are a number of firmware releases for the G900FD model with the CSC code OJV. Install Phone INFO ★Samsung★, free from the Play Store, and under the heading, "CSC CODE", post the, "Product Code:", details and I can give you a definitive answer.

Phone info Samsung product code is SM-G900FZWVXSG

Thanx

Product code SM-G900FZWVXSG is for the United Arab Emirates and your phone model is the G900F and not the G900FD. At some point the G900FD firmware has been flashed to your phone which would explain why you have not received an update. See #1.10 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide.

The latest firmware for UAE for model G900F is...

Model SM-G900F
Model name GALAXY S5
Country United Arab Emirates
Version Android 5.0
Changelist 4920419
Build date Mon, 18 May 2015 06:32:47 +0000
Product code XSG
PDA G900FXXU1POEC
CSC G900FOJV1POF1


This firmware is can be flashed using Odin and by following the instructions and video in #1.11 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

As for writing to the SD card, if the phone is rooted, use NextApp SDFix: KitKat Writable MicroSD (root) for media files. If you want to write anything anywhere, add the user 'everyone' to the card with rw access in /system/etc/permissions/platform.xml in the <permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" > section.

Doesn't the D in G900FD mean dual Sim ? This is mine; I have 2 Sims in it right now. Isn't that what item 1.4 says in the Guide ? I have recd 1 or 2 OTA updates. I bought it via Amazon this past end of May 2015. I live in Germany and didn't receive it til approx 2-3 wks later which was my first use of it.

My phone isn't rooted - can I fix the sad card writing issue ? I've read that lollipop 5.x fixes that. That's the primary reason I made my original post.

Thanx
