Galaxy Grand DUOS (GT-I9082) receiving Android 4.2.2 update

Well, the saga of the mid-range devices receiving an official taste of Android 4.2 before the high-end ones continues: Samsung has released the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Grand DUOS in Russia. This comes after Samsung updated the Galaxy S II Plus, Galaxy Note 8.0, and the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 to the newer Jelly Bean iteration.

The update’s build number is I9105PXXUBMG8, which is newer than the build that earlier leaked for the Grand. Android 4.2.2 brings new features such as lockscreen widgets, dedicated toggles menu in the status bar, improved task switching, Daydream screensaver mode, and performance enhancements. On the TouchWiz side of things, expect to see new widgets, homescreen and more from the Galaxy S4.

Here are the update details:

  • Model Name: Galaxy Grand Duos
  • Model Version: GT-I9082
  • OS Version: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • Build Date: 29.07.2013
  • PDA: I9082XXUBMGA

The update should be rolling out now but might take a few days to reach you. If you’re unwilling to wait, you can grab the full firmware from the source link and update manually via Odin (you can flash it on a Galaxy Grand from any country, but you might have to wipe all data after a manual install to make it boot if you’re flashing it on a device outside Russia).

  9. does it work for I9082L?

  10. Grand Duos is a worse smarthpone than galaxy s3 and note 2….. I don’t understand why Samsung hasn’t launched this official firmware yet for the galaxy s3 which is the most sold smarthphone… 60 million of units!!! :( :( :( :( Tired of waiting…………………. Delays Delays Delays…………….

    • Because GRAND it’s newer phone than both S3 and Note 2

    • There are rumours that the phones you mentioned above will go straight to 4.3. You just have to be patient.

  11. Is updating manually via Odin is exactly the same procedure, Official OTA update does! Or It Includes Rooting and Voiding Warranty…

    Reply!!!!

    • No need for rooting. Warranty remains intact as it’s an Official Samsung ROM. Use Odin as normal. If you’ve already installed the initial 4.2.2 beta there’s no need for repartitioning. Just install by selecting the file in ODIN using “PDA’ button. You can check “Auto Reboot’ and “F Reset Time options”. All should go well & Android should upgrade with your files/settings preserved [from 4.2.2 beta].

      • my grand has 4.1.2 i downloaded the source file but it cant installed into my mobile through my odin plzz any help….

  12. Can I use it on GT-I9082L ?

    • I don’t think it will work! But you can search in Xda forum to get a solution for this!

      • I tried to search but no luck finding it !

      • Eu testei com o cm10.1 seguindo o forum XDA… está tudo perfeito com 4.2.2, o meu é GT-I9082L.

        • passa o link que vc seguiu por favor.
