G900IZTU1BOA1: The Galaxy S5 SM-G900I also gets Android 5.0 Lollipop Update firmware

Samsung Galaxy S5 G900I Lollipop Update

Samsung has started rolling out the Lollipop update to its another Galaxy S5 LTE variant, SM-G900I, the firmware being G900IZTU1BOA1. G900I is an LTE handset, running Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and belongs to Asian market where the popular Galaxy S5 variant is G900H actually, running the Samsung’s own Exynos chip. Sadly, the Galaxy S5 G900H is yet to receive Lollipop update while those odd buyers of G900I can download the firmware, released in Taiwan btw, on their Galaxy S5 and get a taste of Lollipop anywhere in the world.

The build is based on Android 5.0, not 5.0.1 or 5.0.2, and would feature Samsung’s heavy and bloated TouchWiz obviously.

Talking about the Lollipop update, HTC updates its HTC One M8 unlocked and developer editions too yesterday to Android 5.0, while one for LG G2 isn’t far from release.

Full details of the firmware are as below.

  • Model: SM-G900I

Kapil still loves his Galaxy S2 i9100! No, really. And Galaxy Nexus! Need we say more what kind of guy he is? And he's also a die-hard Liverpool FC fan. Email: kapil@theandroidsoul.com

    FINALLY!!! I’ve been waiting for weeks for this one.

    I did the update.
    Result:
    Works but now I have hangs and overall performance is very slow.
    – Hanging Keyboard
    – battery drains really fast.
    – Changing between Apps is a pain.
    – step counter seems to deliver wrong/less step count.

          • Jens Kirch

            I would still wait a bit longer. Maybe further firmware updates will have a better performance. And check if you find more user reports maybe.
