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

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.

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.
