AT&T begins Android Marshmallow rollout for the Samsung Galaxy S5

As is usual at this point, AT&T and Samsung have begun pushing out yet another update to last year’s Android version… almost exactly a year late. This time it’s at least to a relatively older phone, the ye ol’ flagship Samsung Galaxy S5…

Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S5 gets Android Marshmallow

Android has some problems. One of those is that it takes pretty much forever for its OEMs to update their devices. That trend doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon. But if you’re an owner of Verizon’s Galaxy S5 and have been waiting (un)patiently to have somewhat modern software, worry no more: your phone is finally getting updated to Android Marshmallow starting today…

Among the features people came to love about the Galaxy S5 that were removed in the big design overhaul brought by last year’s S6, water resistance was possibly the most noticeable. The plastic ruggedness of the S5 was replaced in favor of a sleeker, more elegant design. But with the Galaxy S7, Samsung managed to bring back the best of both worlds, delivering a gorgeous-looking device with all the functional utility provided by IP68 certification.

In order to protect the phone, it looks like Samsung has built an internal safeguard which is triggered any time remains of water are spotted in the proximity of the microUSB hole. The phone shows a message “moisture detected in the charging port,” which could potentially prevent both the handset and the cable to malfunction or fry altogether. It sounds like a handy feature to have…

Android Marshmallow for Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Note 5 rolling out from next month according to sketchy leaked schedule

Samsung is historically a little behind its Android-making competitors when it comes to rolling out major software updates for its smartphones.

Factory Reset Protection was introduced with Android Lollipop, and, like Apple’s iCloud Activation Lock, it’s supposed to make it really hard to resell a stolen Android phone. The gist is that when you use Android recovery menu to reset a phone to factory settings, the phone will require upon reboot that you sign in using a Google account you previously used on the device before resetting it. If someone steals your phone and wipes it, they need your Google account for it to be anything but a brick.

Well, it appears that a flaw in Samsung’s phones lets potential thieves around this security measure, and it looks like the workaround (via RootJunky) takes just about five minutes to pull off… expand full story
