    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.

    Country: Open Europe
    Version: Android 4.4.2

    Cheers for the heads up :)

    Samsung have more leaks than a colander! :listen:

    This one is 4 builds and 12 days later than the previous, "leak".

    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... :rolleyes:
