Earlier today we informed you about the Note 4 Marshmallow update firmware releasing, and now is turn of Galaxy S5 Plus, international variant. With build G901FXXU1CPE1, the Galaxy S5 Plus, model no. SM-G901F, is being treated to latest Marshmallow update by Samsung, jumping straight from Android 5.0.1, skipping 5.1 altogether. Now that Marshmallow is here, we bet none of the Galaxy S5 Plus users are gonna complain over the lack of 5.1.1 update for the device.
While the OTA update will reach your S5 Plus soon, over the course of next 2-3 weeks, you can update your device to Marshmallow manually too by downloading the firmware from the link provided below.
The guide to install the firmware is also available at the same page. As you are installing the official Samsung build, there is no risk of losing the warranty of your device in this case.
Go to above page and look for the exact build no. G901FXXU1CPE1 to download. Don’t download any other firmware file as that would only brick your device. Keep an eye on the model no. and build no. okay.
Once you have installed the update, do let us know of your review of it. Is this exactly what you expected, the performance, UI, etc.?
