Galaxy S5 still running 4.4.2..?

Hombero

Hello,

 

My Galaxy S5 is still running 4.4.2 which I understand to be more than a year old: December 2013. I haven't been pushed any updates OTA, and Kies says the phone is up to date. I am particularily concerned with the heartbleed vulnerability that is not fixed until 4.4.4.

 

Is there something futher I must do in order to be pushed the 4.4.4 update?

 

Thanks

Hello Hombero

Unfortunately the 4.4.4 update isn't out for the S5 yet and may not come to the S5 but the 5.0 update will come in the near future with Rogers.  Rogers will announce what updates come to that device on their " OS Upgrade Schedule" thread. Until then there isn't much information that can be posted or said from Rogers side or for u to get it unless u root ur device on ur own discretion. You don't need to worry about the Heartbleed bug as it doesn't seem to be affecting any S5 from what i have heard and seen.

I have an S5 Prime, SM-G906S.  It works great on the rogers network, when I first got it in November I was able to get the 4.4.4 update over the air.  I recently updated to 5.01 Lollipop thru Kies, because over the air was not seeing the update.  I hated Lollipop, so I downgraded and went back to the stock 4.4.2.  So now I'm looking for the 4.4.4 update, I can't find it anywhere.  Does anyone know where i can get that update file? everywhere I look I can only find the 4.4.2.  I might have to try the XDA forums.

Hello jermbos

Unfortunately you would need to look at the XDA forums for this as here we don't have it.

Ya I already posted the same thing on there too.  Its not really that big of a deal I'm just glad I was able to downgrade to 4.4.2 cause Lollipop is garbage!

Hello jermbos

Samsung has pulled the Lollipop update from all t the carriers around the world due to all the issues / bugs it has. They will release the update sometime and it will have a better update. As for now, just stay with that update u have.

odd how 4.4.4 is not listed... are you sure it was an official ROGERS OTA update?  i never got that on my S5 at all.

 

and before Rogers updated their OS schedule, i never saw the S5 having 4.4.4, always 4.4.2 before the 5.0 fail.

Hello SS604

The S5 from Rogers never had the 4.4.4 update. It always had 4.4.2. So maybe the OP had another update or thinks Rogers had the 4.4.4 update instead.

I looked back on my back ups and the software I see there shows 4.4.2 for my s5.

You guys could be right.  I only had Lollipop for one day, and now that I have 4.4.2 back on it seems different than the last Kitkat I had.  Maybe its just playing with my head.  Do you guys know any reason why my phone won't update OTA anymore?  Its an unlocked phone, I did OTA updates before, now it won't, only way is with Kies now.

Hello jermbos

Hmm well sometimes they don't update via OTA but need to do it over the Kies. For sure the S5 was running 4.4.2 and NOT 4.4.4.

Make sure to download the correct firmware for your Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet. Please note that a correct firmware is one that matches your device model and the country/region from where you purchased and using it. To do so, find out your device model by going to Settings> About device > Model Number and note it down. Next, you’ll need to find out the CSC code of your device. CSC codes are region and carrier/network operator specific.
