Looks like after rollout the Marshmallow update for T-Mobile Galaxy S5, Samsung has pull the plug and is raining Marshmallow on Asian Galaxy S5 sets too. Right now, we’re looking at Marshmallow update being bestowed on Galaxy S5 sets in Kazakhstan, model no. SM-G900H to be exact, where build G900HXXU1CPE6 is what you need to install to upgrade your Galaxy S5 to Android 6.0. Mind you, there was no Android 5.1 update for G900H model no. devices, so it’s definitely pretty big update and deal for user of G900H sets.

If you are using a Galaxy S5 with model no. G900H, then be sure to check into Settings app, and look for a system update to manually upgrade the device to Marshmallow now.

However, because the rollout will be completed in next 3-4 weeks, it’s very much possible that hitting the ‘check for update’ button may not bear immediate fruits.

For that our dear users, you have to download the firmware and install it yourself, which is easy, and update to Marshmallow now. Download the firmware from the link provided right below, looking for the exact build no. G900HXXU1CPE6.
