    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 SM-G900M
    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
    Product code TTT
    PDA G900MUBU1CPC3
    CSC G900MUUB1CPC3

    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.

    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.
