Hotfile download link is very poor in performance, I had to restart download 6 times with no luck. If you can upload file on other file sharing sites it would be great. Thank you.

i’ve just recently updated my galaxy i9505 lte from android 4.2.2 to 4.3 as far as i saw it and tested it, it was great however im wondering about my camera,, it seems 4.2.2 is still clearer than this 4.3, hoping this final build will result if not the same quality of 4.2.2 must be much better.. thanks a lot.. i hope this would help you guys somehow.. its just a feedback or a room for more improvement..

When you turn developer option on, and if you change the animation scale, window animarion scale, animator scale… to 0.5, then you restart the phone, animator duration scale goes back to 1.0

What country?

I’m from netherlands and i installed the XXUEMJ3 leak over my previous XXUEMI8 leak but i did not change the CSC_file. I only used the AP/BL/CP files!
I got a fully working wifi. I only had to factory wipe the MI8 install coming from 4.2.2 in order to get a fully functioning phone.
If you are from europe i suggest reflash the XXUEMI8 version with AP/BL/CP/CSC files.
Factory wipe if you do not have wifi.

I’m in the UK.

No wifi, network internet extremely slow and keep losing signal.

Very weird.

Thanks for the reply.

Ik ben ook ned. en heb net een paar uur aan mijn s4 gezeten. Ik heb de j3 erop gezet en alles doet het alleen geen nederlands maar engels. Als ik eerst de m18 erop zet met alle 4 de files en dan de j3 zonder de csc file heb ik dan nederlands?
En wat is factory wipe? Ik had namelijk de eerste keer geen wifi en ook geen toetsenbord. Pas na 4x werkte alles goed.
Alvast bedankt.

Successful updated here to 4.3 on my S4 2hrs in and no problems so far nice one.

Well.. i tryed out the first leak and i was very impresed. The laggs were solved for me( browser, contacts and phone apps,), benchmark scores were higher even if i don.t care about that it looks like samsung is doing a great job with software. I downgraded it to 4.2.2. Can.t wait to get the official update!!! 1-2 weeks :D

3 years 7 months ago

How did you downgrade to 4.2.2, my i9505 wont revert back as odin says fail all the time

How can I get more languages??I need Latvian..

Ok upgraded from xxuemi8 to xxuemj3 (without the CSC file)!
Everything works ok except google play books app isn’t included. You have to download this from google play. Perhaps this is the difference between asia roms and europe roms.
Anyway sofar a working phone!

can i flash in switzerland

3 years 7 months ago

If you are already at XXUEMI8 then you can flash but leave the CSC file, you dont need that.
If you are still on 4.2.2 then you should wait for the europe version later this month
