As already promised, Samsung is providing Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA updates for its Galaxy S5 smartphones. Thus, a few days back the company released Lollipop in Poland, while the same firmware, dubbed as XXU1BNL2 can be anytime installed on any European Galaxy S5 model.
Now, another roll out has been offered; this time the South Korean market is the one to provide the latest Android OS for various Samsung Galaxy S5 users. Thus, the new KTU1BNL2 Lollipop OS is now compatible with any SGS5 model number G900K. Currently, the ROM is being offered by all three major South Korean carriers, KT, SK Telecom and LG Uplus, though the firmware is arriving in phases or gradually.
So, since we are talking about an OTA roll out, not all the South Korean Galaxy S5 users will receive their Android 5.0 Lollipop notifications at the same time. That’s why, if you want, you can choose to manually install the KTU1BNL2 OS by using Odin and Samsung KIES. In order to do so, you just have to download the software from SamMobile (go to this page) and to install Odin on your Windows powered computer. Then, for the proper update process, use this tutorial.
Anyway, the notification should be already displayed on your phone, so just slide down the notification panel in order to check if the OTA is embracing your S5. If not, you can also manually check for new Android 5.0 Lollipop appearance by going towards “menu – settings – about phone – software version – check for updates”. If the OTA is being spotted, enable a WiFi connection and follow on screen prompts for installing KTU1BNL2 OS on your South Korean Samsung Galaxy S5.
