    After the Marshmallow release to the unbranded international model, G900F, for the U.K. back in February and the Korean models G900/K/L/S a week ago, Samsung have released Marshmallow to the unbranded regional model, G900M, for South/Latin America on CSC code UUB and Product code TTT which is for Trinidad & Tobago.

    This looks to be the start of the Marshmallow, Android 6.0.1, rollout by Samsung. Here are the firmware details for the release...

    Model name GALAXY S5
    Country Trinidad and Tobago
    Version Android 6.0.1
    Changelist 7500820
    Build date Sat, 12 Mar 2016 16:17:25 +0000

    O.K.... here is the rough formula for AT&T and Verizon releases.

    It takes around 8 weeks for them to add their OS modifications, deletions and carrier bloatware.

    "If", they choose to base their release on the Samsung, 12th March build in post #1, that would mean a roll out sometime around mid May.

    However, as we have seen in the past, they do sometimes release on much earlier Samsung, pre roll-out builds, and could issue an update anytime now. If they choose to do that... then god help you. Verizon did that with the Lollipop release and it was a complete and utter disaster and took them months to fix. AT&T released on a later Samsung build and experienced far fewer issues with their first Lollipop release.

    Yep. I missed the previous s5 fiasco. Just wish Verizon would get their act together.

    Ironass, I'm laughing. Rather than wait for the inevitable questions about Verizon and AT&T, you just rolled it in to the second comment. I was gonna ask! :)

    It's almost like I have second sight! For instance, I can predict exactly when the Mods on here are likely to buy me a drink...

    Pffft, no hope of EE bothering with it I imagine. They're awful at updates.

    My wife and I woke up to Marshmallow this morning on our G900M's. So far, I haven't used the phone much and I don't see any real changes, other than some icons looking different.

    The update was super smooth, no hangups on either phone.

    I'm not sure that I would want to install marshscrewup on my Note 4, it works just fine like it is.

    Our two S5s are working okay with 5.1.1 but I don't like it, 4.4.4 was much cleaner and performed better. Actually, one of my S5s is still on 4.4.4 as I never allow the update to install.

    I have read enough complaints about how 6.x is upsetting a lot of folks....
    like on the HTC One M9, which we have one of also, it has caused a lot of discontent...

    Fortunately, when VZW released it to the HTC, they made it optional with a box to check: "Do Not Ask Again"

    I was floored. VZW giving me a choice? the sky is falling.

    "After the Marshmallow release to the unbranded international model, G900F, for the U.K. back in February"

    Are you sure? I have the UK unbranded SM-G900F, it's still on Android 5.0 but both Kies and OTA Updates are saying no update available. Am I missing something?

    So the update was withdrawn? Will it be coming back? Or do I have to flash it manually as per that other thread?

    I loaded the update yesterday. Now I keep getting this message: SD Card Tap here to transfer media files

    What does that mean? Transfer where? They're still on the SD card....

    My new S7 says that after a reboot. I think it's like what happens on Windows when you plug a memory stick in - "you've plugged in a memory card, what do you want to do with it?". Must be a 'feature' of Samsung Touchwiz on Marshmallow - something to remind the laymam user that they have an SD card to use. I haven't found any way of disabling it.

    I took Sprint's update to Android 6.0.1 and then rooted. I posted step-by-step instructions At XDA.
