One of the most awaited roll outs of Android 5.0 Lollipop seems to be just round the corner as the leak on XDA developers forum suggests. The rumors about the rollout of Android update on Samsung’s high end devices like Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 surfaced quite a few days ago. But it is now when the rumors seem to be taking a certain shape. It was obvious that all the Samsung high devices will be subjected to the Android L upgrade, but the question was when? The date seems to be very near as leaked images of the firmware have already hit the media.
According to the leak on XDA developer’s forum, you can easily upgrade your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Samsung Galaxy S5 to Android L right now, but it will take some time and some amount of effort. But there are a few catches.
According to the developers who have shared the information about the upgrade state that functions like calling, texting, etc. have been tested, but one cannot guarantee the working of all the features with the current method of upgrade. In addition, you will lose all your data on the device one you initiate the upgrade. At last but not the least, the upgrade will only work for Sprint users.
All of the steps of the upgrade are listed in the XDA forum. Most of the users who have upgraded to Android L via the steps on the XDA developers forum seem to be satisfied with the upgrade, but at the same time, some individuals are still waiting for the official rollout to follow.
The leaked firmware clearly points to the near arrival of the official upgrade for the devices. With a few brands already rolling out the upgrade for their Smartphones, it is expected that Samsung will be in that list soon enough.
