    GT-i9505 update problem

    Hi all,

    According to this site new firmware (I9505XXUENA4) is available for my phone. The KIES logo is grey which means this update cannot be obtained via KIES. Is in this case an update only available via OTA?

    When I check for firmware updates my phone is telling me the latest updates are already installed which is kinda weird.

    Can this update only completed via ODIN? And if I don't perform the update, will it block the upcoming KitKat-update?


    rgrds,
    Cambrinys

    Try connecting to Kies.
    Go to Tools > Upgrade Firmware and Initialization to see if you are offered the update.

    Alternatively, download and update with Odin. This will not affect your phone's ability to get future Kies/OTA updates.

    Or wait until you get the update OTA.
    OTA 's are rolled out in order of request.

    Does this mean Samsung will launch it soon?

    Yes
    It is not showing as an update with Kies at the moment, but give it a few days.

    While waiting do check your Settings > My device for an OTA upsdate.
