Android 4.3 bug fix update rollout for Galaxy S4 worldwide

Good news everyone, it seems like Samsung has started rolling out the Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy S4 once again. AT&T confirmed the same for its variant earlier, and now the update is showing up in some European nations, including Germany, France, and the UK. The update’s notification terms it as a stability update, which is pretty spot on considering it is expected to fix the issues that caused the original 4.3 update to be pulled, leaving everyone waiting yet again after the initial year-long wait.

The build number accompanying the update is I9505XXUEMKE, and the build date is of November 27th, which means it is the most recent firmware available for Samsung’s flagship smartphone. The update seems to be available only on Kies at the moment, but it should be making its way to devices over the air in the coming days. Don’t forget to do a manual check in the Settings » About phone »  Software updates menu, though as always, the update will reach your device of its own accord.

I have received update notification and updated my S4 now its showing this I9505XXUEMK8.This is really poor version of 4.3 reason why after this upgrade my s4 freeze a lot its almost unusable. Will be getting another version as upgrade or this is fixed one? I live in UK and my mobile is carrier free.

BTW i have tried with kies 3 and it says I have got latest firmware no upgrade available.

I have had this update im on i9505xxuemk8 build date November 19th u.k firmware. I cant really see the difference from this to I9505XXUEMJ7. I didn’t have any issues or any bugs in mj7.. Not sure why they released a new firmware but hey its newer than the other one.. But like I said I cant see any difference at all. No bugs in mj7 and no bugs in mk8

Surely it is my choice whether I want to downgrade my i9505 from 4.3 to to the original 4.2.2. And what are the security issues that Samsung mentioned? They are a lot of people, and I mean a lot of people, who are not happy with the 4.3 upgrade and the Knox saga and who want to downgrade their phones back to 4.2.2. Be careful Samsung, I smell a class action lawsuit coming.

That’s not true. LG G2 will receive the update “sometime” in Q1/2014. That means it can receive the update ’till april/2014.

Getting a bit frustrated. Let’s go Samsung. There are millions of S3 users out there waiting for the update. Oh, and get it right this time.

Keeping my fingers crossed they do the same thing for the S3. Hopefully this time they’ll update the launcher and weather widget and add a couple more features from the S4 that won’t affect it’s sales.
