Hi all,

Me and the Mrs both have Galaxy S5 (Int variantions) on EE in the UK. She got an OTA update to G900W8VLU1AND... But I didn't..
Manually searching for an update brings nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Pete

I can't seem to find the data folder, do you need a root file explorer to see it?

Haven't got around to rooting this phone yet. Ill get that done tonight and let you know!
I'm guessing the issue is my phone may have downloaded the update without installing?

All updates are at Sammobile.

Once you root but keep stock, you should check there once a month or so, see if there is a new ROM for your carrier, and install via Odin. You simply type in your exact model number, and it will list them all.
