    Verizon started rolling out an over-the-air update today for its Galaxy S5 phones. It's called a Software Update but it also updates Android Lollipop to Android Marshmellow, the newest version.

    So far, so good on my S5.

    You'll like Android Version 6 Marshmallow Tony. I rooted my S4 and installed CMG13 back in January as the OTA Samsung upgrade from Jellybean to Lollipop stuffed up and I lost Menu,Home and Return buttons.:eek: (many others had the same problem with their OTA from Samsung. We couldn't go back to Jellybean. There was no fix from Samsung:mad: so I did the root and flash and the phone works perfectly and all keys and buttons work. Nothing ventured - nothing gained. :D

    I'd love to root my S5 but the Verizon S5 is a pita to root. Requires going back to original stock OS and upgrading from there. Hit or miss too. There's no definitive guide I've found, just a plethora of different methods, none of which appear fully workable.
