Hi Daniel,

yes, it will,
S5 and S5 Sport require OC5 or higher Software Version, so please update your phone rom before to purchase if you haven't done it yet.

Thanks!
See you ;-)

You can't remove it from the settings, you have to use the site I pasted above with the correct login.
If the phone have indeed that lock it should be registered there yet.

Can you contact us?
https://idoneapps.com/contactus.php

So we'll follow you by email and we won't go off-topic here?
See you ;-)

That number is related to the connection instance Oding read, it haven't to be the same, you just have to check that you see a connection, so that cell have to be of the same light blue color.
See you ;-)

... require OC5 or higher Software Version, so please update your phone rom ...


Please post a link to the tutorial explaining what is OC, how do I check my version and, how to update the ROM without network access using heimdall? Odin?  and what is the "5.1.1" thing specified in the title of this post?

Thanks

BTW-my specs are:
Software version: G900PVPU3B0G1
Hardware version: G900P.04
Android Ver. 5.0

Hi,

Your version is G900PVPU3B0G1, to make it shorter people calls it OG1, so this is the right topic for you.
5.1.1 is the Android version, your one is 5.0

We think that the steps are well detailed, if you have a problem report it here.
See you ;-)
