Just received the 5.1.1 OTA. look at the kernel build date. this thing was cooked up YESTERDAY. device feels a lot snappier!! This is the T-Mobile branded one.

NO, the bootloader is not locked with the 5.1.1 update that was leaked.

Rather, "Factory Reset Protection" (an Android thing - not a Samsung thing!) is now an option, which allows you to lock the bootloader yourself, protecting your device from someone installing a custom recovery, wiping your device and making it their own. It makes the device somewhat less valuable, and therefore (supposedly) less likely to be stolen.

Okay guys so many people called me fake and I don't blame you..having 5.1.1 even when nexus devices don't have it is kinda suspicious but I need to clarify some things.. New boot loader is not locked like Verizon/ATT phones It's FRP, Factory Reset Protection. This is google's response to Icloud for stolen/lost devices.. I tried to flash twrp and cfroot and freaked out when i got the error about bootloader being locked...Now this doesn't mean Samsung/Tmobile will completely lock bootloaders in the future but we have to wait and see... phone seems to be really smooth and stable , however it looks like the camera needs some work done so I'm 100% this is not the final build and I guess I'm just lucky I got it this morning and be happy that Samsung has a build this stable with 5.1.1 which means official releases are not far.

Would you be able to check if the Auto-Brightness setting is fixed (check to see if it stays on Auto-Brightness), and if the Night clock is only lighting up necessary pixels on the AMOLED display? I can't wait for the rollout to hit my T-Mobile Edge! I'm hoping they improved the battery life some more too, it definitely doesn't last long enough.
