[Updated] International Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N9005) gets update with Download Booster, Kids Mode


Samsung-GALAXY-Note-3-Neo-2-feature

Last month, the T-Mobile variant of the Galaxy Note 3 received an update that brought Galaxy S5 features such as Download Booster and Kids Mode to Samsung’s third-generation phablet flagship. Today, the same update has begun rolling out to the international Snapdragon variant of the device – an over the air update is currently available in the UK, and apart from the aforementioned features, the update also brings version 2.0 of KNOX. The update is around 185 MB in size, and carries build number N9005XXUFNF4.

The Kids Mode feature won’t work right away, as the update only installs the Kids Mode installer, which you will need to use to download the necessary files. Expect the new update to make its way to other regions in the coming days. As usual, also expect to be waiting a few days before it shows up on your device, though if you’re in a hurry, you can try pulling it manually from the Settings » General » About phone » Software updates menu.

Update: The same update is now rolling out in Russia as well. Expect the list of regions where it is available to expand considerably as the days go by.

        it has nothing to do with this site PERIOD!

        People need to understand that SAMMOBILE is not an official (sub)site from Samsung Mobile.

    I wanna ask a thing, why do N9000 doesnt get anything from samsung? It’s Note 3 too! Also it have samsung’s own processor and SoC. But getting no support. This is surely my last samsung phone. $700 smartphone for nothing.

      Because the N9000 is the Samsung Exynos variant of the Note3, while N9005 is the Qualcomm Snapdragon variant.. Samsung always releases updates for the Qualcomm variants first before their own Exynos.. My advise to you if you want updates on your phone first, and if you’re still gonna be buying Samsung phones in the future, is to always buy the Qualcomm variants instead of the Exynos one.. cheers! =)

        I know that some people feel that Samsung should be updating their own SoC first but they don’t.. annoying but that’s how Samsung does it.. =(

      Splurge a tiny bit more on a 4G model then. I’m glad I don’t have the Exynos variant, updates is a small reason why.

    kids mode and download booster all of these are gimmick i have 4g with limted download so i will waste money – kids mod is just another stupid things – i wish they port to note 3 the upsm or s5 toolbox or even ui or enhanced camera processing time / at least bring the camera from 4.3 how shame is that -samsung dont make people exciting about new update anymore / the Knox 2.0 is just going to be something pain in the a** to root or even custom rom.

      My wife has an S5 with Kids Mode and it is actually not a gimmick. We have a 3.5 year old and it is useful. It has a timer, PIN controlled, and ability to quarantine content you want you kid to access only, and nothing else. Haven’t tried Knox as yet but don’t knock it till you try it.

    Download link? Manual install? By virtue of being members of this site, quite a few of us are not know for our patience when it comes to updates and waiting for carriers to push them out

    Hello!
    When this update will be available in Romania for SM-N9005?
    At this time, it isn’t, via Kies or OTA.
    Best regards.
