    Coming from the Samsung Galaxy SII, I knew what the various PDA and CSC codes represented. However, the structure seems to have changed for the S4.

    For instance, the recent Germany firmware release is...


    I9505 = Model no:

    XX = Language pack for de,en,es,fr,hu,it,nl,pt(cs,da,el,fi,no,pl,sl,sv,tr, I'm guessing???

    UB = ????

    MEA = Build no:


    I9505 = Model no:

    OXA = Open Europe code... I'm guessing???

    B = ???

    MEA = Build no:

    Can somebody throw me a bone and help me out here as I would like the definitive answers to these codes so that I can help others.

    That might have seemed funny or clever if any of the links actually answered my definitive question... but they do not and just serve to make you look foolish for your non reply. :stupid:

    Not sure how much it helps but my phone from phones 4u on a T-Mobile SIM(not tried any others yet to see if it's unlocked) has the code:


    At least gives a picture of another phone...Will ask my brother as he is on three mobile UK, just didn't give you details about the other Europe phones...Sorry

    thinking about it, figured I'd give my csc code too:

    Shin or rib? :)

    I can make a list of the codes installed on our live demos - shoot me a PM if you think it will help and I'll do it when I'm back to work Thurs.

    Oh, dear! :slug: has found me on here and de-cloaked! So much for my cunning plan of keeping a presence on the SGSII forum. :shot:

    Thanks for the offer Slug and for the odd code explanation sntaylor but as I tried to sort of explain in post #1, I'm stuck on the, "U", and the, "B", bits.

    I'm beginning to think, (there's a novelty), that since the, "U", is common to every build release to-date for the i9505 and i9500, that it could be Samsung reverting back to their pre SGSII numbering system in some way.

    For instance... M E A could = M for year 13... E for May build.. A for the first build that month. Seems logical to me.

    That still leaves me with trying to explain the, "U", and the, "B", or, "A", or, "C", that appear in, say, I9505XXUBMEA or I9500ZCUCME5 or I9505XXUAME2 in the PDA codes.

    The XX, ZC, etc; are the language packs in PDA and in CSC the OXX, OLB, etc: are the regional codes.

    It's just the U and the A/B/C that I can't work out. :dontknow:

    As you both know, these codes are very useful to me in things like the Jelly Bean update - Dummies Guide

    I have asked on the SamMobile Forum and have emailed Samsung... zilch, so far. I fear I may be tossing in bed thinking about this! ;)

    I didn't think the info I was divulging was of any real use to the cause....if there is anything we can also do to help in certainly willing....just nothing to do with the bedroom ;-)

    Anything with meat on it would be fine by me.

    Thanks! Have PM'd you sir... so that you might put me out of my misery. ;)

    Oh, sntaylor! Please, raise your mind from the gutter. That was a perfectly innocent remark. :saint:
