Android Questions? Ask Android Device Experts for Answers ASAP
Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.
What is the exact model number of your S5 phone ?
Yes. I'm writing the answer. Please stay online
I'm really sorry. There is no 5.1 version ever released for that model. All the available firmwares for that model can be found here --> http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G900V/
However, have you tried clearing that data and cache of that application ?
If not, try it. Go to Settings > Applications or Applications Manager. Find and select that CALENGOO app. Then select Clear Data and Clear Cache.
Then restart the phone, delete the app and redownload the application.
I know this might not be answer you want to hear, but to answer your original question there is no way to install Android 5.1 on your phone as it is not released yet. But there is a way run third party firmwares on it. Let me know if you want to do that.
Please don't rate me bad or poor if you are not satisfied. You don't have to rate anything. Let me know.
I just checked some sites and found that 5.1.1 is going to be released soon for S5. It is not yet released officially. That firmware will be available in this website the moment it is available to public --> http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G900V/
Do you want me to send you the instructions now so you can install the firmware to your phone when it becomes available ?
Remember, there are different variants of S5 and my answer is regarding your specific model number --> SM-G900V
I believe this is the Verizon S5. The AT&T Variant has been receiving updates since October not Verizon.
I understand. But to troubleshoot, we have to clear the data. Sometimes clearing the data fixes the issue. It is not safe to replace the application with another version as it may corrupt the data. Can you boot into safe mode and see if you are able to open that app ? To boot into safe mode, turn off the phone. THen turn it back on while holding down Volume Down and Power at the same time until it shows Safe mode on bottom. Then release the buttons and try the app ? Does it work ?
FYI AT&T S5s are getting 5.1.1 Since October.
But Verizon S5s have not received any updates since 5.0. 5.1.1 for Verizon S5s may release soon
I know this is not a satisfactory answer. Currently the firmware of 5.1.1 is not available for Galaxy S5. In fact, you have to wait for the OTA updates. Because my instructions about flashing/installing the firmware/ios using your computer when it is available.
When you install the firmware using your computer, it will erase everything from your phone which I believe you don't want to do. Have you tried booting your S5 in safe mode and try running the app ?
I know this is not a satisfactory answer. Currently the firmware of 5.1.1 is not yet available for Galaxy S5 VERIZON version. In fact, you have to wait for the OTA updates. Because my instructions are about flashing/installing the firmware/software using your computer, when it is available.
It should. Try this. Turn off the phone. Turn it back on and when it turns on, release the Power button then immediately hold down Volume down key only until it boot into safe mode. Let me know if it still not booting.
I'm sorry. You have to wait until the 5.1.1 update released by Verizon. You will see the firmware when it is available, in this website --> http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G900V/
As you can see, only up to 5.0 is available for your device now. It may a take a few weeks or even months to get the 5.1.1 released.
If you want, I will send you the instructions now to download the 5.1.1 firmware from your computer to your S5 when it becomes available. Remember, downloading the firmware from your computer to your phone will erase the phone completely and install the new version. Let me know if you need instructions to do that.
If you are not satisfied, please don't rate anything even if the system asked you to do so. You can close this page without rating.
