Exclusive: I9500XXUEMJ5 – Leaked Android 4.3 test firmware for Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500)


GalaxyS4-Android4.3

After leaking two test firmwares for the Galaxy S4 LTE (GT-I9505), we wanted to give some Android 4.3 love to the international Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500). So after constantly trying for a few weeks we were finally able to obtain a leaked Android 4.3 build for your Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500) and it’s one of the *final* builds – that means nothing will be included or excluded in future builds of Android 4.3 for the SGS4, except a few bug fixes and improvements here and there.

Today, Samsung started rolling out official Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy S4 LTE (GT-I9505). According to our sources, Samsung should start rolling out official update starting tomorrow, however it may take a few more days but it should be officially released within a week. We would like to thank our insider because without our insider’s help we would not have been able to provide you folks with this firmware.

      I’m pretty sure Samsung themselves didn’t say October, it was a French carrier… Samsung only hinted that the S3 would “be compatible with the Galaxy Gear”/upgrade to Android 4.3 in the near future

      Creo que mataste la carpeta EFS del movil hiciste un backup de esa carpeta? Si invalidaste el imei va ser dificil recuperarlo aunque se de personas que si lo lograron baja la rom de Rusia y flashea con odin … y presiona *#06# si te dice imei #null o algo asi debes recuperar los archivos de la carpeta EFS que hacen que el celular agarre la red de telefonos primero flashea la de rusia y luego avisas suerte

    Just to inform you that I flashed this rom 2 times (22 & 27 october) & every time sent a surcharged SMS to India at this number +91919560345888 (Samsung ???) :( :( :(

    After updating to Android 4.3, i noticed some lag problem of keyboard when swiping Chinese character. There is no problem if I swipe it slowly, however when I swipe at a faster rate, I can see the lag problem. In version 4.2.2, there is no such problem. Is there any problem with my keyboard?
