Android 5.0.1 leaks for Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

Note Edge - CurveThe long-awaited arrival of Android 5.0 Lollipop for Samsung’s devices edges closer to its conclusion (see what we did there?) While the Galaxy S5 has received the Lollipop update in some markets, other devices continue to wait. If you’re a Note Edge user, and particularly keen to engage with risk, then you might like this news.

A leaked build of Android 5.0.1 has been uploaded to XDA Developers, complete with the instructions you’ll need, and the warnings you should take heed of. It’s an official pre-release, and it does feature TouchWiz, but better yet, it won’t void your warranty or trip the “Knox counter”, meaning that no one will be any the wiser.

The build only supports two model numbers at this stage – SM-N915FY and SM-N915F – so if you don’t have one of these builds, you won’t be running this leaked ROM, sorry. Note Edges sold in Australia are SM-N915G, so that’s bad luck for us, but good news for European markets, where the -FY variant is sold.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
