Default KitKat pre-release Samsung test build i9505

Over on SamMobile they have got their hands on a Samsung pre-release test build of the new KitKat, Android 4.4.2, firmware for the International, GT-i9505, model only. This is available for download and flashing via Odin and comes ahead of the anticipated roll out of KitKat in February/March.

WARNING: Flash at your own risk. This firmware will un-root you and give you a stock recovery, locked bootloader and Knox flag but will not increase your binary counter or trip Knox if you are already on Knox enabled firmware. See, Knox Security & locked bootloader on new firmwares.

Model: GT-I9505
Country: Open Europe
Version: Android 4.4.2
Changelist: 276328
Build date: Thu, 2 Jan 2014 23:30:51 +0000
Product Code: OXA
PDA: I9505XXUFNA1
CSC: I9505OXAFNA1
MODEM: I9505XXUFNA1


For more details, download and screenshots...

Exclusive: I9505XXUFNA1 – Leaked Android 4.4.2 KitKat Test Firmware for Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505)

We should expect to see a rush of new custom ROM releases now... hopefully with more features and improved camera software.

EDIT Alternative, free, download link...

If I was a suspicious, conspiracy theory, type... I would say that these are controlled leaks to get free, real world, testing. This is usually followed by one release of the official firmware, usually on an International device with a European CSC/Product code, before they start the roll out.

That was said by me... tongue-in-cheek, volimte21.

However, being the gentle, kind, puppy loving, person that I am, I like to think the best of everyone...
