Sprint Galaxy S5 receiving update to G900PVPU3BOK4 build

A new update is currently rolling out for Galaxy S5 users over at Sprint carrying the build no. of G900PVPU3BOK4. The OK4 update brings some performance improvements as well as minor UI changes along with bug fixes and security patches.

Right now, we don’t have the OK4 firmware in Odin’s TAR format with us, so, OTA update is your only way to upgrade your Sprint Galaxy S5 to OK4.

If you were hoping for Marshmallow update on Sprint Galaxy S5, then you would have to wait for another 2-3 months.

Going by the Lollipop update’s experience, which was released in October 2014 and released for Sprint S5 on February 5, it’s fair to say first week of February 2016 is when Samsung could release the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the device.

You think that’s a long wait, well, buy a Nexus device next time around. If you could. Till, then that’s how Samsung updates roll, which is kind of disappointing, but totally expected, even if not acceptable, now a days.

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

    In a nutshell, should we bother with this or wait a few months more for Marshmallow? I’m rooted and I don’t want to risk losing root for a minor patch; otherwise I’d just go ahead with it.
