Hello and welcome to Android Forums freshprinze!

I just obtained my Galaxy S4 and trying to understand the firmware version installed on the phone.

Following are the various details I could obtain using *#1234# code.


I was looking around to map the various parts of the above codes to country/region/revision etc. But I am unable to map it due to the 'E' in the CSC.
The, "E", is a matter of conjecture and speculation but appears to refer to the original Google Android build release that the firmware is based on, thus...

Android 4.2.2... A, B, C, D

Android 4.3... E

Android 4.4.2... F

As I found out:

OJV = Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Morocco, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia,South Africa, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey
MJ = 2013, October
5 = Version 5
That is correct.

Please help me figure out the various parts of the scheme. Is this a new numbering scheme introduced by Samsung?
This does differ somewhat from earlier numbering plans used by Samsung for, say, the Galaxy S2.
