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.
S4-KitKat Model: GT-I9505
Country: Open Europe
Version: Android 4.4.2
Changelist: 481100
Build date: Tue, 28 Jan 2014 22:02:19 +0000

      1. You can use with I9505 without any question.
      2. No, the custom firmware disallow auto update. however, you will be allow auto update if you will be installed official firmware. i think there is no issue.

      I think you are feeling a little bit hesitation when using camera, because the camera shutter sound still working. In this version actually same as your (if you use 4.4.2) version. By the way turn off shutter sound by mannually, see Notification Panel > Sound. Click to Vibrate or Silent. Should be ok.

    Salut, Sunt din Romania…Nu imi vine sa cred ca ati recurs la asemea lacomie, Credeam ca firma Samsung este o firma serioasa si Sammobile site partener, dar daca ati ajunj sa va pretati sa cereti bani pe aceste rom-uri…dupa ce riscam sa ne stricam telefoanele telefoanele,… aveam o pasiune si nimic mai mult sa facem update de firmware am cumparat un i9505 pt asta. dar acum am sa il vand si am sa imi cumpar un IPHONE 5S. Good Bye Samsung!!!

    Salut george. Imi pare bine sa vad ca mai sunt si alti romani pasionati ca mine:) din ce stiu eu sammobile nu este site partener samsung ci doar un site care a fost construit de oameni care sunt la fel de pasionati ca si noi. Sunt fan samsung de mult timp. Am avut s2 s3 si acum am s4(i9505), si sincer am fost mereu multumit. Site-ul a fost reconstruit si probabil inca au anumite probleme…nu cred ca o sa ceara vreodata cineva bani pt niste softuri care sunt free.. probabil au si ei niste probleme si merita sa le acordam timp ca sa le rezolve… ideea ta de a.ti cumpara iphone nu este una chiar atat de buna. Este i tradevar mai rapid..dar nu cred ca se merita sa dai atatia bani pe un telefon care ofera doar un mic spor de performanta. Ecranul la s4 este net superior celui de pe 5s. Camera foto este aproximativ la fel de buna exceptand conditile de luminozitate scazuta unde iphone-ul este superior. Deci acei 300 de euro in plus nu cred ca se merita. Eu zic doar sa ai rabdare. O seara placuta:)

    Come on Samsung, did you forget your i9500 model for S4? We did not get any update while i9505 users get second test firmware.
    Please give us information about the any kind of 4.4.2 firmware release date for i9500..

      Nu stiu ce s-a intamplat cu device-urile de mai jos, eu nu am nici o problema cu I9505XXUFNAD, o tastatura noua, nu mai gresesc cand ma grabesc, incarca agenda mai repede ca niciodata, Equalizer-ul playerului audio nu merge la nici un ROM 4.4.2, totul e mai rapid,totul perfect functional recomand tuturor I9505XXUFNAD sper ca ROM-ul official sa fie si mai bun, cat despre batrerie pana acum se consuma normal cred e cam devreme sa fac o afirmatie in acest sens.

    E rapid ios-ul pentru ca e total diferit de android. Nu sunt atatea procese care ruleaza in fundal. Nu are multitasking real. Nu ar mai fi la fel de rapid daca ar avea la fel de multe functii ca si androidul

    Can somebody tell me what they mean with, ‘your date will be wiped’ (I guess int storage?)? I mean, I always install new roms, so what’s different with this version? Is it because it’s a test version? Or does it redo the partitions?

    • nerobdms 7 months ago said:

      Wiped mean your data will be lost, so backup before firmware update. If you are currently use 4.2 or 4.3 then should be update this version to improve UI features, and you will save batter charge as well.

        Yeah thanks for the advice. But my int-sd is almost fuil and if the final update will come in a couple of days, I can do the job twice ;-)

        And you know something about the message somewhere below mine with ‘don`t repair bug on protect sd card’?

        • nerobdms 7 months ago said:

          I think you have ask your sd card is protected, there is two types of protected, one is password protected and two is corrupt protected. If the sd card password protected, then some device can be unprotected the sd card. If corrupted your card like as virus issue or another, there is many factor to removed the corrupt issue.

    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.

    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.
