Hi,

I’m waiting for the update on Galaxy S5 in order to fix my SD-car issue (living in Brussels).
I don’t want to root my device. Isn’t there a (safe) way to get a Polish ip and do the update?

Please advise (howto).
J.

The updates do NOT depend on where you live, it depends on your phone ID's (several, exact details are of course known to Samsung/phone network providers).
If you buy a SGS5 in Korea, you will receive the update the same time as Koreans, even though you live in Brussels).
Therefore fiddling with a Polish IP number will not help you.

You can't unless you do some crazy rooting stuff (which you already said you didn't want to do)..
