Lollipop 5.0.2 OS for Galaxy Alpha

While away in Florida last week my Rogers Galaxy Alpha downloaded the Lollipop 5.0.2 update. I am hesitant to install as there has been no indication from Rogers that the Alpha was getting this update yet and I've seen plenty of issues on other devices with Lollipop. Should I have gotten this update or is this an error because I was in another country? thanks!

Hello @agg1945, Welcome to Rogers Community Forum!Smiley Happy

 

Thank you for your post, I have also checked the OS upgrade schedule and the upgrade is not listed for Galaxy Alpha. As you have mentioned, the update might have been downloaded when you were connected to different carrier outside the country, even though I haven't seen a non-Rogers’ device getting OS update when connected to Rogers’ network. Personally, I would not install it.

 

Thanks,
RogersMoin

Hello @agg1945

It's been confirmed that some Bell and Telus and some Rogers customers are receiving the 5.0.2 update!

Re: Lollipop 5.0.2 OS for Galaxy Alpha

Can anyone tell me if  & when either Rogers or Samsung will upgrade the Galaxy Mega 6.3?  I just got the upgrade to 5.0.2 for my Galaxy tab S 10.5. If there is not going to be an upgrade, is there anyway to get it done? I recently upgraded to the note 4 but only used it less than a day & put my sim back in the 6.3 &have given the note to my partner as she is still using an old expria. I love my Mega 6.3. There is rumours of a new Samsung called through tab 4 that is 7". I may upgrade to that when & if it comes available. Thanks gents for the help.  You all are great!

Hello @fysty-1

Unfortunately I haven't heard anything yet for your device as its the Mega. As I said in the other thread,u may not get it. It's all up to Samsung and Rogers

I updated my Alpha today with rogers. Now my overview/multi/open apps button doesn't work most of the time. It doesn't even light up when I press it.
Rogers own Home Edition pvr app doesn't seem to work on Lollipop either. It was fine yesterday but now just like my nexus 7 won't let me login.

Hello @bentwookie

Hmm have you tried doing a factory reset on the device To see if that will fix it?
