I sadly had to get a warranty replacement handset this week due to a screen issue, anyway, the new handset came with 4.2.2. pre installed but this time the notification bar is still blacked out.
The device and kies tells me the latest firmware is installed so im a little confused.
Anyone shed any light?
I'm afraid you'll have to be a little more specific croftyboy8
as there are currently 13 versions of the Galaxy S4
floating around with the 2 main versions being the quad core, GT-i9505
, and the octa core, GT-i9500
, and 11 minority variants, all with their own firmwares.
Go to your dial pad and enter...
and 3 lines of information are displayed. These are your, "Version", information. Armed with this, you can then check on SamMobile
if there has been a later firmware released for your device.
Just a thought, the replacement phone could be a re-flashed phone which may not be able to be updated via Kies anyway if it has had firmware other than that originally intended for it, used in the re-flashing.
