Chinese Galaxy S5 Firmware Made Available for Download, Let the Extractions Begin

Just as Galaxy S5 pre-orders begin on major US carriers, we’re finally starting to see official software builds from the device arrive. Today, SamMobile has dropped a download of the Chinese Galaxy S5’s firmware for Android 4.4.2, which means we’ll start seeing system apps, wallpapers, and ringtones available for download very soon.

The firmware for model SM-G9009D has already had at least one app extracted from it, the updated S Voice. SamMobile has made the APK for S Voice available for download as well, and Galaxy S4 and Note 3 users rocking Kit Kat can update to it with no worries.

Other system apps such as WatchON, S Note, Calculator, and Gear Fit Manager had also been leaked earlier, and anyone with a TouchWiz Kit Kat ROM should be able to use them by installing the APKs.

You can grab the download from right here. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more goodies get outed as folks search through the firmware a bit more, but for now we are content.

    No Touchwiz KitKat for me. Damn Verizon. What the hell is taking so long with the S4 update?

  • NexusMan

      All up to you man. If you like it buy it.

    They should have stuck with the faux leather back.

    • Mike Saleh

      I think there leaving that for the note 4 to keep them both apart.

  • moew

    At least the majority of people will put it in a case and hide that hideous back.

    i wish someone would extract woodback.apk from the moto x so i could install that.

  • 213ninja

    S-Voice, lol

    Don’t forget Best Buy has it on display since Saturday if you want to check it out in stores (before you buy an HTC One anyway)…. But OMG that black is ugly. The blue is actually pretty nice looking

    • Ehm, the gold is where it’s at…

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        lol the “Copper Gold”. Oh Samsung

      • The Narrator

        To bandage up any wounds?

      I’m sure you will be able to buy a different back for the S5. But for myself, I keep my phone in a case at all times, so I don’t care. You can hide the ugly “band-aid” look, but you can’t hide the unnecessary black bar on the new HTC One.
