Default Latest Android 4.3 firmware releases, fix bugs

UPDATED 27 NOV

Update releases for...

AT&T U.S.A. post #28

T-Mobile U.S.A. post #27

Canada post #26

Europe post #6


The latest firmware release that has begun rolling out from Samsung for Android 4.3 is a bug fix release to correct the shortcomings in their initial 4.3 offerings.

The firmware, MK8, has been rushed out with a build date of 19th Nov: has been released, initially, for the non carrier branded International model, GT-i9505, on CSC code DBT. The release appears to have fixed all the previous problems experienced by this model on the previous 4.3 releases.

More CSC code releases will be forthcoming over the next week or so for the International model with other variants and carrier branded models receiving it before Christmas, hopefully.

Sheesh, it's getting to be like Windows now. Never update until Service Pack 1 is released, and then wait a few days to see what that breaks. We're still having fun tho.

I'll have you know that MK8 has even fixed the Navigation audio instructions lag during BT Music playback through the stock music player which reared its ugly head on the very first 4.3 release.

This 'un seems to be a proper Bobby Dazzler.

It's been that way for some time. I don't remember the issues, but Verizon pulled the GB update for the D2G after it was released. And for my original Nexus 7 the first update made the device very laggy.

It really makes me wonder about the quality of beta testing programs.

Great news for owners of the International version, GT-i9505, who are waiting for the latest, "bug fix", release of Android 4.3. In an unprecedented flurry of releases in the last 9 hours, Samsung have pushed out 19 different locations, (CSC code), firmwares, MK8 & MK9, for unbranded European and Scandinavian phones.

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), Germany (DBT).

Carrier branded firmware will take longer as it has to have the carrier branding and, "bloatware", added by the carrier and then returned to Samsung for release. So, contact your carrier directly for release dates.

To locate your CSC, (Consumer Software Customisation code), enter into the dial pad *#1234# and your CSC code is after your model number, i.e. I9505OXAEMK8

I have just checked for updates and following your detail as to establish the CSC I find that mine is CSC:I9505TUEMJ8. I go to update and I am informed that "the latest updates have already been installed". I understand that the latest update should therefore display OXAEMK88

Question - Am I on the latest update?

Not seen a CSC code TUE . You seem to have changed your CSC code... it was OXX, Open Europe, here a few days ago.

No... the term i.e. means, "that is", and is for demonstration purposes only.

Mistyped details. Should have read:-
AP:I9505XXUEMJ7
CP:I9505XXUEMJ7
CSC:I9505BTUEMJ8.

Does that convey anything?

I have not knowingly changed anything.

Yes. As per my earlier post, BTU has had an update.

Your CSC code has changed from this post on the 5th Nov; here...

is displayed as per your advice.
Therefore, that firmware, which is not for your original CSC code OXX, must have been flashed in the last 19 days, by you or someone else, which explains why you cannot receive the BTU update as per the reasons given in #1.4 of 18 Galaxy S4 models - know yours?

"ironass

Forgive me for my lack of knowledge in respect of this, but the phone has not been out of my possession and any updates/changes that have been made are without my intended intervention. When you state "flashed" is this a state where it is an intentional change to the phone is made as I have not done anything like that?

I only use the phone for calls/e-mails and some browsing.

I note your comments from previous posting as
"Provided that your phone has never been rooted, unlocked, flashed or altered by you in any way, then the best advice is to take it to a Samsung Service Point and ask them to update the firmware for you."

I may very well have to do that but wonder as to how that can have been caused in the first place.?

The only explanation that I can even remotely offer is that as you were on an, "Open Europe", CSC code, you received an update from Android 4.2.2 to Android 4.3 in the last 19 days without you knowing and that it somehow changed your CSC code from displaying OXX to BTU. More than that, I cannot say. You could try checking for an OTA or Kies update before visiting a Samsung Service Point.

I updated mine to 4.3 using Kies on the 14th November upon completion Kies advised that it was not compatible with my device, which (I assumed) was due to the update with the suggestion that I update Kies to accept SG4.
The phone indicates V4.3

I have not updated Kies as yet. OTA indicates that I have the latest.

As a simpleton(my words) should I update Kies and try for SG4 updates there?

Upgrade Kies as it requests and see if the update is available afterwards.

Looks like it's the turn of the branded Canadian S4 phones to get the updated Android 4.3 release from Samsung. All seem to be MK5 and MK6 firmware builds from 15th Nov:

Updates, so far, for...

Globalive Wind Mobile, Rogers, Koodo Mobile, Sasktel, Virgin, Fido Mobile, Bell, Telus, EastLink, Video Tron, Mobilicity.


Strictly speaking, these are not bug fix firmware releases as the Canadians never had the early, buggy, Android 4.3 firmware releases that have plagued the U.S. carrier branded S4's.


Check both OTA, (Over the Air), and with Kies for update.

T-Mobile's, SGH-M919, for the U.S. has just had a release for Android 4.3 with a build, MK2, dated 16th Nov:

Samsung do not issue changelogs of update details but the build date and number would indicate that this is a bug fix release.

Check both OTA, (Over the Air), and with Kies for update.

How strange! Offering a patch instead of a full firmware update. Perhaps this is a holding measure by AT&T for all those who installed the defective Android 4.3, AT&T release, before it was withdrawn.

The details given by tparky, here, indicate that this now brings the firmware up to MK2 which is the T-Mobile release.

Hopefully there will be a full firmware release for those AT&T users who are still on Android 4.2.2.

Yes, there was a full 750 MB download for my brother's AT&T Galaxy S4 that was still on 4.2.2. I will be checking version details as soon as the boot is complete.

Cheers trparky! Have updated post #1 with that.

Hopefully, the other U.S. carriers will not be far behind.

Does anyone know if the mobile data quick button is still in the notification bar on 4.3 AAT&t version? Something I noticed on the note 3 at the store running 4.3. I'm updating now almost 730 mb

Is this over wifi or AT&T's network? If over the latter I wonder if they are pushing this out to too many people at the same time? And at a rather stupid time of day if that's what they are doing?

Really hate this update if I'm being honest. God awful wait for it. Knox and a host of other dumb apps that suck battery and flag shit. No more mobile data toggle in the bar. Personally turned off by Samsung on this update..

Just installed the MK2 "bug fix." All the things that the original 4.3 update broke are still broken:
  • Persistant notifications - 3 apps show notification icon even though they are turned off in the app and disabled in Settings > Manage apps (and these are the actual app icons, not the generic ones that Google shows to shame devs who don't follow notification standards). This didn't happen in 4.2 or 4.2.2, and doesn't happen in 4.4 with the same apps on another device.
  • Transistion Animation Scale bug - if you have this set to anything other than the default of 1.0, it resets to default after accessing the camera app. This didn't happen in 4.2 or 4.2.2, and doesn't happen in 4.4 with the same settings on another device.
  • FoxFi Pro no longer works (with either the original 4.3 or this "bug fix," but I expected this). Hopefully, the app devs will soon find a workaround, as they have with past Android updates.
I haven't had a chance to test bluetooth, but it's been flakey since the first 4.3 OTA. Both 4.3. OTAs disabled Juice Defender Ultimate, but it was easily resolved by restoring the in-app backup. MK2 did not reset my APN settings like the first OTA did, so that's a plus I guess. Overall, this latest update is a big net ZERO.

This is a pain. I was 1 hrs and 30 min into the update, with 35% left of the and the update just stopped. I didn't use my phone except to check to see the status of the update. (Phones been in standby mode, hooked up to charger and with over 2GB internal storage.) I restarted phone to see I'm still on 4.2.2. What gives?

I wonder if those who are getting the full MK2 firmware download will experience the same thing or if those on the full T-Mobile firmware, MK2 release, also get these problems. I must say, that I am not a big fan of firmware patches myself.

I guess that you have or will be doing a cache wipe in recovery mode to see if that helps. If not, as I see you are an experienced user, maybe a full AT&T, MK2, firmware download and install via Odin as per #1.5 of 18 Galaxy S4 models - know yours? may help, depending, of course, on reports from those who have installed the full MK2 versions.

I made what I consider to be a tremendous mistake upgrade to the latest version on my T-Mobile Galaxy S4. Not that I'm having any issues with the firmware, just that I regret not doing my research beforehand and realizing that the bootloader was upgraded to the new Locked more secure bootloader and I can now no longer downgrade or install custom ROMs on my device until somebody in the wonderful dev community figures out a way to do so.

By pure luck alone I still have root thanks to chainfire even though it triggered the security counter but I don't care because luckily knock on wood I have never accidentally broken my device

Just tried my update check and its started the download straight off, will this wipe all my settings and have to reinstall apps and layout home screens etc ??

My phone is a UK unbranded OXX btw.

**edit
Update installed and all icons stayed in place.
Negative is that several apps i've used since have stuttered at times and on Simpsons Tapped out it evens seems to freeze for a few seconds which has happened several times..I wish i'd just thought to myself 'if it aint broke'....

Have you had any luck subequent to this post? This was a releatively small download, and shouldn't haven taken anywhere near that amount of time. Maybe you have/had wifi connection issues, or maybe there was network congestion when you last tried?

Have you had any success subsequent to this post? this was a relatively small download, and shouldn't have taken anywhere near that amount of time. Maybe you have/had wifi connection issues, or maybe there was network or server congestion when you tried last?

Been running 4.3 for a fair few weeks now, updated this latest fix last night, after about an hour.

Still having the same battery issues.

EDIT: I have an unbranded S4.
