Galaxy S5 users are in for some good news as Samsung has officially rolled out the highly-anticipated Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the smartphone with build number G900HXXU1CPE6 in Kazakhstan.

Though the firmware is being rolled out as a manual update for Kazakhstan, it is officially compatible with all G900H models. Interested users can follow the step-by-step guide posted below to install the latest Android firmware manually on their Galaxy S5 via Odin.

The XXU1CPE6 update is confirmed to be stable and it brings a bunch of bug fixes as well as security improvements over the previous release.


  • Backup important data and settings on the Galaxy S5 G900H before you proceed with the firmware installation
  • Ensure the phone has at least 80% battery charge to prevent unexpected device shutdown during installation which could inadvertently brick the device
  • Verify that USB debugging is enabled via Menu > Settings > Developer options (if developer options are missing, just tap repeatedly on the build number via Menu > Settings > About Phone until the option appears)
  • This tutorial is meant for Galaxy S5 SM-G900H model only. Do not attempt this procedure on any other phone as it could permanently damage the hardware.
