Download Canada Galaxy S5 Android 5.1.1 Update

We just brought you the news that Android 5.1.1 update has been released for the Samsung Galaxy S5 in Canada.

Now, we have full firmware available for you to download, with an installation guide to help you update to Android 5.1.1 manually.

Do note that it won’t be easy too root G900W8VLU1COI4 firmware on Android 5.1.1, as you will need a custom kernel for this. So, until a custom kernel comes out, flashing only SuperSU via TWRP recovery won’t work.

But yes, once a custom kernel supporting root access comes out, you will be definitely able to root your Galaxy S5 on G900W8VLU1COI4. We will update this page when a custom kernel is available, so be sure to check that.

Meanwhile, let’s just install Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update on our Canadian Galaxy S5 and enjoy it.

Canada Galaxy S5 OI4 update:

Supported devices

Galaxy S5, model no. SM-G900W8

Don’t try this on any other device whose model no. is not as given above!

Disclaimer

Installing an official firmware through Odin doesn’t void your device’s warranty, but it remains an unofficial process and thus you need to be cautious of it. In any case, you only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

Backup!

Backup important files stored on your device before proceeding with the steps below, so that in case something goes wrong you’ll have backup of all your important files. Sometimes, Odin installation may delete everything on your device!

Step-by-step Guide

Step 1. Download the firmware file and Odin PC software from above.

Step 4. Extract the Odin file. You should get this file, Odin3 chúng tôi (other files could be hidden, hence not visible).

Step 5. Disconnect your Galaxy S5 from PC if it is connected.

Step 6. Boot Galaxy S5 into download mode:

Power off your Galaxy S5. Wait 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.

Press and hold the three buttons Volume down + Power + Home together until you see warning screen.

Press Volume Up to continue to download mode.

Step 8. Connect your Galaxy S5 now using USB cable. Odin should recognize your device. It’s a must. When it recognizes, you will see Added!! message appearing in the Log box in bottom left, and the first box under ID:COM will also show a no. and turn its background blue. Look at the pic below.

You cannot proceed until you get the Added!! message, which confirms that Odin has recognized your device.

If you don’t get Added!! message, you need to install/re-install drivers again, and use the original cable that came with device. Mostly, drivers are the problem (look at step 2 above).

You can try different USB ports on your PC too.

Info: When you load files, Odin checks the md5 of firmware file, which takes time. So, simply wait until that’s done and the firmware file is loaded. Don’t worry if Odin gets unresponsive for a while, it’s normal. Binary size will also show up in Odin.

Step 10. Make sure Re-partition check box is NOT selected, under the Options tab. Don’t use PIT tab either. Go back to Log tab btw, it will show the progress when you hit start button in next step.

If Odin gets stuck at setup connection, then you need to do this all again. Disconnect your device, close Odin, boot device into download mode again, open Odin, and then select the file and flash it again as said above.

If you get FAIL in the top left box, then also you need to flash the file again as stated just above.

That’s it.

Enjoy your Galaxy S5 on Android 5.1.1 update, here’s hoping performance of the device is improved as well.

Well, root access isn’t available for OI4 update as of today, the 15th October. So, you can’t root build G900W8VLU1COI4 right now, but be assured that once root is available, we’ll let you know.

We need to wait for custom kernel supporting root access actually, and once that is available, we can install that first, and then flash SuperSU to gain root access. Let’s hope it becomes available soon enough.

Firmware: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update For Samsung Galaxy Chat

Samsung has finally decided to turn their attention to the low-end crop of Galaxy devices – starting today, the official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update has begun rolling out for the Galaxy Chat in Spain, bringing an important update to the chat-centric smartphone.

The Galaxy Chat is the first low-end device by the company that has received a major OS upgrade, at least to my knowledge, which is a great thing and is something other manufacturers would do well to learn from. There’s no official changelog as is often the case with Samsung’s updates, but we can expect the usual Jelly Bean features to make an appearance – faster performance and smoother interface, expandable and actionable notifications, Google Now, better keyboard, resizable widgets, and more.

The update is currently rolling out over the air and via Kies in Spain for unlocked Galaxy Chat, but those that don’t wish to wait and would like to flash the update manually (especially if they are on a custom ROM), we have a step-by-step guide below to help with that.

It can be installed by those not in Spain and those on custom ROMs as well, but remember that if you do so, you might need to wipe all data on the device in order to make it boot after the update. If you aren’t comfortable with that, you should wait for the update to roll out in your country.

Now let’s take a look at how the official Android 4.1.2 firmware can be installed on the Galaxy Chat.

Compatibility

The procedure described below is only for the Samsung Galaxy Chat, model number B5330. Do not try it on any other device.

Warning!

The methods and procedures discussed here are considered risky, so try them out at your own risk, and make sure to read each step carefully before attempting anything. We will not be held responsible if anything goes wrong.

How to Install Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on Galaxy Chat

Extract the file downloaded in step 3 on the computer to obtain a file named B5330XXUBMC2_B5330OXABMC2_B5330XXUBMC2_HOME.tar.md5 (the file name may end at .tar, which is normal). This is the actual firmware file that we need to flash on the phone.

Extract the contents of the Odin3_v3.04.zip file to a folder on your computer.

Now, turn off your phone and wait for it to shut down completely.

Then, put the phone into download mode. To do so, press and hold these keys together: Volume Down + OK button + Power till the phone turns on and shows a Warning!! screen. Then press Volume Up to enter download mode.

Important! Connect your phone to PC now. You should get the message “Added !!” under Odin’s message box in the bottom left.

If you don’t get this message, make sure you installed drivers correctly (using Kies or directly) as given in step 2. If it still doesn’t work, try changing to another USB port on the computer and also use the USB ports on the back if you have a desktop PC.

Important! Do not make any other changes in Odin except selecting the required files as given in step 11. Leave all other options as they are. Make sure Re-Partition check box is not selected.

What do if Odin gets stuck or doesn’t do anything: If ODIN gets stuck on setup connection or at any stage of this process after you’ve hit the Start button, and doesn’t seem to be doing anything, or if upon completion of the process you get a FAIL message (with red background) in ODIN, do this: disconnect the phone from the PC, close ODIN, remove battery for 4-5 seconds, re-insert it, turn phone on in Download mode again, and do the procedure again from Step 9.

[Important] What to do if phone doesn’t boot: After you get the PASS message and the phone reboots, the phone might get stuck at the booting animation. If that happens, perform the following steps to make it boot. Remember that these steps will wipe your personal data like contacts, apps, messages, etc. If your phone has already booted, stop reading the guide here, your phone has been updated successfully:

Boot to recovery mode — for which, first power off phone (by removing battery and reinserting it), wait for 5-6 seconds, and then press and hold Home + Volume Up + Power keys together till the screen turns on, then let them go to boot into recovery. Once you are in recovery mode, use volume keys to move the selection up and down and home/power key to select the option.

Go to Wipe data/Factory Reset and select it. Select Yes on next screen.

Then, select reboot system now to reboot the phone, which will now boot properly.

If you run into any roadblocks while flashing the firmware, let us know and we’ll help you out.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Review

Our Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is one of the best Android tablets we’ve ever reviewed. In terms of hardware it’s the best you can buy right now and has a superbly thin and light design. There’s very little to dislike here aside from some elements of the TouchWiz software and the higher price compared to Android rivals (the iPad mini 2 is the obvious alternative if you’re not set on Android). If you would rather save money and aren’t so bothered about top-notch spec and additional features like the fingerprint scanner and IR blaster, check out the Nexus 7 and LG G Pad 8.3.

Samsung has launched two new Android tablets so here’s our in-depth review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4. Also see: The best tablets of 2014.

The new Galaxy Tab S range consists of the 8in model and a larger 10in model. The former uses an 8.4in screen size and will have to compete with devices like the iPad mini 2, Nexus 7 and LG G Pad 8.3. Check out our Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 hands-on review.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 review: UK price

At first, Samsung announced the 8.4in model of the Galaxy Tab S series would cost £349, a fairly hefty price for a smaller tablet. However, the firm realised this was a little over the odds, got its marker pen out and changed the price tag to £319.

That means it matched the Apple iPad mini with Retina display (coincidence we think not) but it’s worth bearing in mind that some devices on the market are a lot cheaper. The Nexus 7 can be yours for £199 while the LG G Pad 8.3 can be bought for the same price now after entering the market at £249.

The £319 model comes with Wi-Fi only so if you want 4G connectivity as well, you’ll be looking at £399.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 review: Design and build

The Galaxy Tab S models will in two colours: ‘Dazzling White’ and ‘Titanium Bronze’. The former has a white rear cover and front bezel while the latter is grey/silver in those places. Both have a copper/gold colours edge and details like the logos.

Somewhat more interesting than the colour is how thin and light this new tablet is. It’s just 6.6mm thick according to Samsung which is thinner than the iPad mini 2 and Nexus 7. For its size, it’s also staggeringly light; just 294g which makes it really easy to hold one-handed.

Those two odd looking circles on the back are for attaching a case – Samsung has gone for this method instead of magnets or a simple clip over. The Samsung Book Cover is available in different colours and, although it’s a little tricky to use, won’t come off easily. It protects the screen during travel and also allows you to tilt the tablet into various different viewing positions. The downside is that it costs a whopping £45.

Also see our  Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 vs Apple iPad Air comparison review.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 review: Hardware

Samsung touting viewing as the headline features of the Galaxy Tab S range and as such, the 8.4in has the same resolution as the 10in model and 16:10 aspect ratio. A whopping 2560 x 1600 ((WQVGA) on an 8.4in screen means an impressively high pixel density of 359ppi making it the highest we’ve seen on a tablet. As you might expect, the display is amazingly crisp and clear. Samsung says the range has the ‘world’s greatest screen’ for a tablet.

It’s hard to argue with that although Samsung’s AMOLED technology isn’t to everyone’s taste. The punchy colours can be a little over the top making things look oversaturated and in your face so it’s understandable if you would prefer a more natural, laid back display.  

Fortunately, you can adjust the screen mode. By default it’s on adaptive display which adjusts the display’s gamma, saturation and sharpness depending on the content, but there’s also AMOLED cinema, AMOLED phot and basic. The latter provides a more muted look and feel.

Since the tablet is all about the viewing experience, it’s refreshing to see stereo speakers – although they are side mounted rather than forward facing. They pack a reasonable punch but quality deteriorates at higher volume levels. Think YouTube videos rather than feature length film use.

Although you’ll have to pay more for the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 compared to its Android-powered rivals, you do get technology which you’ll struggle to find elsewhere. Samsung has borrowed the IR blaster and fingerprint scanner from the Galaxy S5 (but not the heart rate monitor if you care).

It is a little strange, we think, that the IR blaster is on the side of the tablet so you’ll need to turn it round into landscape mode to make use of it which isn’t the device’s natural orientation.

Storage is a fairly standard 16- or 32GB internally (although we can’t find the higher capacity on sale yet) and Samsung, as usual, offers a microSD card slot which can accept up to 128GB cards.

There’s no downgrade when it comes to other internal hardware compared to the 10.5in model. The tablet has a very healthy 3GB of RAM which is partnered by Samsung’s own Exynos 5 Octa-core processor – it has four 1.9GHz cores and four 1.3GHz cores.

With the same core line-up as the larger model, we didn’t need to hold the front page as benchmark results were identical or only a few points off. We recorded 2765 in GeekBench 3, 14fps in the GFXBench T-Rex test, 3fps in the harder Manhattan test and 1089ms in SunSpider.

From a user perspective, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 provides smooth performance. However, perhaps not quite as good as the spec sheet suggests. We have found, like with the Tab S 10.5, occasional lag – sometimes just switching the screen on, or opening an app. Luckily, these lulls of speed were pretty rare so we can safely say that overall the performance is satisfactory.  

As we mentioned earlier, if you want mobile internet, a 4G LTE model is available for an extra £80. This device doesn’t have NFC but does have other wireless tech which you’d expect from a decent tablet including 11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.

Photographers will be pleased to hear that the the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 has an 8Mp rear facing camera with an LED flash and a 2.1Mp front facing camera. Both camera are of decent quality, if you should like taking photos and video from a tablet and you can see a sample below.

Included camera modes are auto, beauty face, shot & more, panorama, HDR and dual camera but you can download more.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 review: Software

The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is running up-to-date software so it has Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Samsung’s latest TouchWiz interface pre-installed. The interface mirrors that of the Galaxy S5 with the firm’s own icons, widgets and drop down notification bar etc.

There are good and bad things about TouchWiz although these will somewhat come down to personal taste and how you use the device.

We like the ability to run two apps side-by-side on the tablet and you can access this feature (Multi-window) by swiping in from the right side of the screen so it’s easily accessible at any time. There’s also the way the recent apps menu pops up from the bottom of the screen without using the entire display, which on tablets is pretty unnecessary.

The notification bar is also packed with helpful elements including quick settings for lots of, er, settings and sliders for both screen brightness and volume. SideSync 3.0 is also handy for controlling a smartphone (calls and texts etc) from the tablet but it has to be a compatible Samsung handset.

Our main quibble is with Magazine UX which sits to the left of the main homescreen panel. It works a bit like HTC’s BlinkFeed providing content tailored to what you’re interested in. It also has a section for organisation such as a calendar and email but these only provide info if you use the built-in apps, not Google’s.

That’s fine if you use that kind of feature but Samsung doesn’t allow the interface to be removed, one panel must remain so at best, you’ll have to ignore it exists.

New additions include Papergarden, Samsung’s latest digital magazine service, and Kick – a football app which provides in-depth data and stats on players and teams. It also features the latest scores and information while games are in progress. It’s a shame that the tablet won’t be on sale until half way through the World Cup then.  

There is a load of free content up for grabs if you do buy a Galaxy Tab S thanks to Galaxy Gifts. By submitting a proof of purchase form online, Samsung will let you download some apps for nothing including RunKeeper and Cut the Rope 2. Even better is free three- and six month subscriptions to Sky’s Now TV service and Deezer.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 review: Battery life

With a smaller battery than the 10in model (unsurprising), you won’t be shocked to discover that the device doesn’t last as well. Perhaps it would with less demanding hardware than it’s bigger brother but as we’ve pointed out the resolution of the screen remains at 2560 x 1600.

The 4900mAh non-removable battery holds its charge well when not being used (on standby/sleep), as we found with the Galaxy Tab S 10. In terms of video playback, you’ll get a decent performance of around or nine hours on average (mainly depending on screen brightness). Samsung claims 12 hours of video and 10 hours of web browsing over Wi-Fi.

With varied use – we’re talking occasional web browsing, gaming, social networks, videos etc – you’ll find the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 will comfortably last a few days before you need to charge it.

G900Vvru1Boa8: Download Verizon Galaxy S5 Android 5.0 Lollipop Update

Verizon Galaxy S5 owners who have not received the update yet, can manually download and install it using the guide below. All you need is to download the relatively big update (1.6GB), and install it using the Odin PC software, download link available below.

The Lollipop update for Verizon Galaxy S5 also gets you new version of TouchWiz, that’s inspired from the Google’s material design in the Lollipop. Although, your Galaxy S5 running Lollipop will be very different to Nexus 5 running Lollipop, because Samsung’s own UI is slapped over the S5’s Lollipop update. We don’t like TouchWiz at all when it comes to UI, and there are already strong rumors of Samsung cutting down on TouchWiz to make it light-weight, more in tune with the Nexus 6.

We recently saw the Sprint Galaxy S5 get an Android 5.0 update, too, while the international variant powered by Snapdragon processor, model no. G900F, received it long back in November. Only yesterday, the Exynos powered international variant, model no. G900H, was also treated with Lollipop goodness.

Verizon would be distributing the Android 5.0 update over-the-air too, so if you want that, don’t do this. Only caveat is that you’ll have to wait for Verizon, and your chance, under the gradual rollout. If you are the impatient sort, sure go ahead and slap the Lollipop update on your Verizon Galaxy S5 right away.

That said, it’s a bitter pill to swallow for HTC One M8 users, who are yet to receive the update as their compatriot Galaxy S5 users get it. Adding salt to the pain, the international version of the One M8 also boasts Lollipop now.

Do have a look at the screenshots of the S5 Lollipop firmware to learn about the new User Interface, and redesigned apps.
