Oh, now Hawker posts links and sources!

Give me a shout when there is a DjeMBeY modified ROM with unlocked, non Knox, kernel and 3Minit framework.

cant wait to see what they have added into it did some research and they are saying its not completely safe to flash if u are rooted. something about a new bootloader and voiding your warranty which in any case is vioded as there is not triangle away for the 9500 so no way to claim warranty anyhow.

MJ7 stock firmware has just been released for the Baltic region, i9505XXUEMJ7. Wouldn't get too excited about it though. Its changelist no: is 1765174 as compared to MJ5 = 1869009.

On the other hand, MJ8 for the i9500, octa core is up with a changelist no: = 1938685

Its a Brazilian build and with all due respect, the last time we came across a Brazilian build, DjeMBeY 4.2.2, it had loads of bloatware/add-ons, (remember Energy saver?), even on the unbranded version. My feeling is that the higher changelist probably reflects this. All the MJ7's for other countries have a lower changelist than MJ5.

Don't think I'll get too excited about this one old boy.

XXUEMJ8 firmware for the GT-i9505, quad core, has been released for Open Austria. Don't get too excited though... it has exactly the same changelist, 1869009, as the MJ5 release.

Samsung would never have an MJ13 release, as explained in #1.8 of Knox Security & locked bootloader on new firmwares.

Therefore, MEA is pre MGG, (2013, July, 16th release), and is before Knox. Only stock Samsung firmwares MGG onwards, (with the exception of MH1), have Knox.

To locate your firmware version... type *#1234# into the dial pad and look at the last 3 letters/numbers of AP:

Another one out with an even higher changelist than MK8, but its MK2 and from Hong Kong, so I guess its just regional differences.

In an unprecedented flurry of releases yesterday, 23rd Nov; Samsung have pushed out 19 different location, (CSC code), firmwares for unbranded European and Scandinavian phones for the GT-i9505 model. These are, "bug fix" releases for Android 4.3.

Among them are... Bulgaria (BGL), Hungary (XEH), Baltic (SEB), Greece (EUR), Austria (ATO), United Kingdom (BTU), Switzerland (AUT), Spain (PHE), Slovakia (XSK), Nordic countries (NEE), Portugal (TPH), South East Europe (SEE), Luxemburg (LUX), Poland (XEO), Italy (ITV), Netherlands (PHN), Romania (ROM), Spain (SIO).

All the releases are on MK8 firmware with a couple on MK9, which has the same changelist no: anyway.





(Just a suggestion to Gandalf but as this now seems to be the Latest Official Samsung Stock Firmware Release thread, maybe a title change would be helpful. )

The International, GT-i9500, octa core has just had its first MK8 release on stock Samsung firmware for Russia. Changelist = 2092849. This puts it on a par with the GT-i9505, quad core now.

I9500XXUEMK8






(Perhaps the OP might consider changing the thread title as this now seems to be the Lastest stock firmware release thread. Pretty please with a cherry on top )

Samsung stock Android 4.3 firmware i9505XXUEML1 has been released for Singapore. Build date 10 Dec: Changelist #2082040... which is exactly the same as MK8, MKE and MKF.








(Actually, I quite like the misleading thread title of, "(XXUEMJ5) Looks like its official", now. )

Samsung stock Android 4.3 firmwares ML2, ML4 and ML6 have been released. Changelist #2082040... which is exactly the same as MK8, MKE and MKF.

My feeling is that further development has now stopped on Jelly Bean, Android 4.3, and that all efforts are now being devoted to KitKat which should hopefully start to roll out to the International version in the next 4-6 weeks... the little green Android god willing!
