mine is still 4.2.2
i can't install to 5.0 =( need help, do i need 4.4 before installing 5.0?

Postman, 04 Jul 2015Hi fellas. I am from Malaysia and have been using SG4 active for 2 years. I need some help on ... moreHi, I'm from Malaysia too, and doesn't get any sign of Lollipop update either, but don't worry, even-though the phone doesn't get latest update, the phone still work flawlessly.
I have quite a few Android device from different manufacturer, one of it only stuck with 4.1.8 version, another one just stuck with 4.2.2, then this S4 Active has been with 4.4.2 since last year update (not getting 4.3 either, straight from 4.2.2 to 4.4.2). Just one of my considered flagship tablet get 5.0.2.
You may ask is it shame to stuck with the dated OS, or is there any large or obvious improvement on the new OS compare to the old one? I would say no. Each device perform normally, and no problem at all for new apps. Some people may say they get much smoother UI, much faster experience, much beautiful UI, but that is not because of the new OS fix either, manufacturer actually fix bugs on the previous release on their custom feature/ custom skin add on. The device that only stuck with 4.1.8, actually is the one getting more frequent update than the others, just that it is not a major version update, but is a bug fix or a more stable release, to make the device more stable, and it prove that the device actual work much more stable than before. Without those major feature update, the device still perform well.
Hi fellas. I am from Malaysia and have been using SG4 active for 2 years. I need some help on how to upgrade this smartphone into Lollipop ver 5.0. When I updated the firmware for the last one week, I only managed to upgraded it into Android 4.4.2 instead of Lollipop 5.0. Appreciate it for your idea. Thanks.
ronexer, 02 Jul 2015i haven't received any update yet, still on jelly beanConnect ur device to a wifi hotspot bcoz ghe update requires a wifi connection rather than using mobile data to download the update. Wyl connected to a wifi, try going to settings> more> about device> software updates> update. It will search for any updates available for the phone.

ppc, 23 Jun 2015hi has anyone else had problems with not being able to hear anything when making or receiving ... moreIts a big software bug n is found in regular s4 also. I have tried and searched many methods nothing seems to fix it. Lollipop update also didnt fix it.
Zackjewell33, 22 Jun 2015Hey my samsung galaxy s4 active wont update from 4.2.2 (jellybean) to v5.0.1 (lollipop) it kee... moreThe update might be network carrier dependent. It might be that ur network carrier is still on the 4.4.2 kitkat update and havent acquired the lollipop update yet.
