Exclusive: I9505XXUFNAD – Leaked Android 4.4.2 KitKat Test Firmware for Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505)

It’s been a few weeks since the official Android 4.4 KitKat release for the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy S4 has still not received its update by Samsung. Plus, it’s been a while since we released a test build, so we decided to release one of the latest test firmwares – I9505XXUFNAD – for you folks out there who are still on 4.3 or the previous KitKat test build.

The new Android 4.4.2 update brings minor UI changes, the most noticeable change being the use of KitKat style white status bar icons instead of the multi-colour icons Samsung has been using in all of its devices until now. The phone has also received a performance boost with the latest update and there is an increase in benchmark scores, as well. Samsung has improved the lock-screen by adding a camera shortcut directly on to the lock-screen for quick access and while playing music the album art now shows up in full screen. Samsung’s keyboard layout has been improved for use in landscape mode, which makes gesture typing easy and much faster. Core Android 4.4.2 changes include: wireless printing, new emojis support, choice between stock messaging app and Hangouts for SMS/MMS, option for changing default launchers under settings, and more.

Anyone with launcher problems? Nova and Apex are no longer working. Stupid TouchWiz and Go do work, but really suck. I really want to use Nova ;-(

Nobody with launcher problems???? I really want to use Nova, but I can’t. Folders and/or appdrawer are suddenly empty. Widgets not loading. I have to restart the launcher almost every few minutes. The same with Apex. First it looked like it worked fine, but then the same problem. No problem at all with the f-ing TouchWiz launcher.
Soooo, I’m not really glad I flashed this version.

For Samsung:

I am in total disbelief how a giant company like Samsung is unable to give latest updates (kitat) to its own in-house octacore processors S4 but rather the outsourced snapdragons….

Always do the update priority international models that s4 s3 i9300 i9505 are the most sold.

I do not know what happened to the device’s above, I have no problem with I9505XXUFNAD a new keyboard, not wrong when I rush, load contacts faster than ever, the Equalizer audio player does not go to any ROM 4.4.2, everything is faster, everything perfectly functional recommend all hope I9505XXUFNAD official ROM to be even better, how about the battery before I normally consume it a little early to make a statement in this regard.

This is the third test firmware for the i9505. The i9500 doesn’t even have one. Shouldn’t have bought the i9500 faulty model anyways.

Hahahaha, this is a very known nightmare, what a disgusting deja vu lol.-

Ok ok. That’s still f-cked. But somehow there must be a reason for it, to do the factory reset. I wonder if that will still be necessary whit the real update.

gogolak

Its just factory reset ur device. Meaning that u lose contacts photos settings and apps… but only data from internal storage. No repartition will be made

nerobdms

Its simple logic.
