The bug fix that was slated to hit T-Mobile’s version of Samsung Galaxy S5 was “paused” because of problems.
The update, known as G900TUVU1ANE5, has been delayed to an unknown date.
T-Mobile put up a short message with no details (other than the “paused” part), but developers on the XDA forum found a probable reason.
They saw that some users were seeing vastly decreased data speeds immediately after applying the update.
“It appears that many users are having major download issues after updating to yesterday’s ANE5 update. Once the update is applied, download speeds are reduced to 1MB. T-Mobile may even have pulled the update,” said one, Michael Aybinder.
“Informal polling on the XDA thread indicates that some users aren’t seeing any issues after the update, while others are seeing dramatic drops in speed and coverage on LTE,” reported Android Police.
” Others only see the issue when switching to a non-T-Mobile SIM, so updated modem software may be to blame. In any case, while I’m sure the problem is frustrating for those experiencing it, it’s good to see T-Mobile reacting relatively quickly.”
