Android 4.3 (XXUEMJ5) Firmware Leaks for the Galaxy Note II
We recently brought you news that the Android 4.3 (XXUEMJ5) update was rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy S 4. We knew that it wouldn’t be long before the update love was spread to Samsung’s older devices. While it’s not yet here in official capacity, it is available in leaked form for the Galaxy Note II.
XDA Recognized Developer Faryaab has posted the leak to our forums, courtesy of Sammobile, along with simple instructions on how to get it up and running on your device. The build is intended for the international Galaxy Note II (GT-N7100), and it brings many new features that were previously seen on the Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note 3, such as Samsung Wallet. As expected, this release brings Knox to the previously Knox-free device.
Keep in mind that there may be various bugs and instabilities due to the fact that this is pre-release software. However, installing this will not increase your binary counter, so those worried about future warranty support shouldn’t worry too hard.
Head over to the firmware thread to get in on the leaked action.
