Current Update Status has been set to ‘paused’ as there it seems like a data speed bug was discovered soon after the UVU1ANE5 Android 4.4.2 Update was rolled out. There is no official word on the availability of this future update, but it will most possibly be fixed next week and released in the first week of June.

T-Mobile has started to roll out a new firmware update for Galaxy S5 users. Expect the new Android 4.4.2 KitKat build to arrive on your smartphone some time between 22 May and 10 June.

Updates from T-Mobile and Samsung are usually rolled out in phases, so you shouldn’t panic in case the new firmware files will not be available today or in the next few days. Users with custom ROMs installed on their Galaxy S5 phones will not get the official stock update.

Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware update has the version set to G900TUVU1ANE5 and it is available OTA (over-the-air) and with Samsung KIES over Wi-Fi only. This new minor Galaxy S5 KitKat update fixes the intermittently incoming SMS / MMS failure that makes some incoming messages getting lost. Also, it adds some stability tweaks so that you will get an even etter Android 4.4 KitKat experience.

G900TUVU1ANE5 KitKat 4.4.2 OTA Update measures somewhere around 130MB and you should expect it to arrive starting today. When your T-Mobile Galaxy S5 alerts you that a new update is available you should simply open the Notification message, read the changelog and confirm the updating process.

In case the update notification doesn’t arrive today or by the end of this week, then you can choose to check manually for new firmware files by opening Settings, then About Device and using the Software Update menu. If there is a new update available you will simply accept the installation and the Galaxy S5 device will do the rest.

Note that in case your Galaxy S5 on T-Mobile runs the G900TUVU1ANCH or G900TUVU1ANCD firmware versions, then you can choose to download the files from the Support Page. If you download the firmware on your PC, then make sure to have USB Debugging enabled on your Galaxy S5.
