After the update my device still says update available, however, it says 5.1.1 under device info. When I press continue update, it flashes "no firmware" and the icon at the top of the notification bar shows the arrows in opposite directions as if its trying to update, but nothing is happening. Any ideas as to why this occurs? Im using att straight talk and never had any issues with updates prior. Thanks in advance.
Just finished the 5.1.1 update - no issues & phone's responsiveness is great now.
For once, add me to the list of people whose update went off without a hitch & promised enhancements actually are there.
There was a bit of sluggishness after the first reboot after install, but I'm thinking that was due to some kind of initial indexing going on in the background.
Aside from that, all apps, including Android Pay are working as before and no lag in the Recent Apps button. Text scrolling is noticibly smoother, especially when scrolling, for example, the list of installed apps in App Manager.
Mine failed too at 1%, on reboot it said the update was interrupted. Same thing happened in the initial update to Lollipop. Going to go out on a limb and guess this is related to my phone being encrypted. Wiping the phone was the only way I could get that update to take. (The little interim ones did work for me). Sure makes me wise I could backup my phone with Titanium Backup like I used to.
For those who have the AT&T Note 4 but are NOT on AT&T network, here is how you can upgrade.
1) Buy a AT&T Go Phone SIM card on eBay (should be around $2-$4)
2) No need to buy any airtime
3) Once you have your SIM card, go to the link below to activate your account https://www.wireless.att.com/GoPhoneWeb/goPhoneLanding.do?method=activatePayGo
4) During activation process, select the $30 plan. Don't worry, it won't ask you for any money or credit card
5) Once you complete the registration process, you will have 26 days to add funds to your account. During that period, you should be able to perform the upgrade.
