POSTS TAGGED: Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Forums Added for the HTC One E8 and Xperia T3, New Unified Development Forums for Certain Samsung Devices
Posted June 7, 2014 at 02:30 pm by Will Verduzco
We recently added new forums here on XDA for two recently announced and highly anticipated devices. The new devices are the HTC One E8, which is set to be released later this month, and the Sony Xperia T3, which will come at some point in Q3. While we were at it, we also changed a few things to make it easier for developers to post and maintain cross-device variant builds for several Samsung devices.
First up, we have the HTC One E8. The E8 is a lower priced version of the HTC One M8 flagship device. The E8 retains most of the M8 technology, but the metal casing is replaced with a polycarbonate design. Another stand out difference from the M8 is the E8 loses the dual sensor 4 MP camera, and instead features a tradit. . . READ ON »

You may recall that back in November of last year, a leaked internal memo indicated that KitKat for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was expected some time in January. Then in the middle of the first month of this year, we actually did see KitKat make its way to the Note 3 in official capacity.
When KitKat made its way to the international variant, we all knew that the US carrier variants would lag behind somewhat. Then about one month later, we saw the update roll out to the Sprint variant, followed shortly by the T-Mobile and AT&T variants. Curiously absent, however, was the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Thankfully, that changes today, as a KitKat-packed update is now available for download.

After initially shipping with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was promptly upgraded to official Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Naturally this update, which released in the middle of January, was intended at the International and un-branded version of the device. But some time went on, and we then saw the update appear on the Sprint variant, and then the T-Mobile device.
Now, the update has begun rolling out to the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The update comes in the form of software version N900AUCUCNC2, and as expected it brings the Android version to 4.4.2.
The 542 MB incremental OTA is currently being delivered in the form of a staged rollout, so your device may not yet receive the upd. . . READ ON »

Last Friday, we wrote about how the Android 4.4.2 kernel source code was released for the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 3. In addition to being useful to developers in its on right, this also alluded to the possibility of an imminent OTA update for the device. It is now here, and thanks to the fine folks here on our forums, it has also been mirrored for your early updating pleasure.
Just like the earlier kernel source code release, this OTA comes in at software version UVUENB4, and as expected, it brings Android 4.4.2 to the device. Currently not much is known about this particular update in addition to the change in Android version, but it’s safe to assume that the update is inline with what we’ve s. . . READ ON »

Official builds of Android 4.4.2 have been making their way to various iterations of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 over the past month. Now, it seems as if the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 is next on the list, as the GPL-mandated kernel source code has been posted to Samsung’s Open Source Release Center.
News of the source code release comes courtesy of XDA Forum Member toastido, who first noticed the addition on Samsung’s Open Source Release Center earlier today. This source release corresponds to the yet-to-be-released N900TUVUCNB4 update for the device. And while we don’t know much about this particular update other than its build number and Android version, it’s safe to assume that t. . . READ ON »

The S View cases for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and Note 3 are fascinating products, as they not only protect the device and its screen, but they also feature a topside screen that displays your status bar, temperature, caller ID, and date and time. Not only that, but it’s also recognizes S Pen contact on the Note 3, which allows for some simple actions such as taking notes.
What may come as a surprise to some is that the S View cases don’t allow you to change the screen timeout period, and they also offer very few options for backgrounds and no ability to set your own custom background. Luckily, XDA Forum Member vonerk has written a tutorial on how to set a custom wallpaper and timeout period.
The process can ge. . . READ ON »

Just a couple days ago, we talked about how Samsung finally shared its KitKat update plans for several of its devices. Now, we’re seeing Android 4.4.2 make its way to the Sprint variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, following up on the release of the KitKat-compatible kernel source for the device.
The official OTA comes in at version N900PCPUCNAB, and it is now rolling out to users as an incremental upgrade from the previous MJ4 build. Naturally, in order to receive the incremental OTA, you must first be running the official MJ4 build. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member rpenrod23 has provided a direct link to the MJ4 tar file, which can be used in conjunction with Odin to revert to stock in order to acce. . . READ ON »

Before Motorola was acquired by Lenovo, the OEM released two very interesting smartphones. The Moto X and Moto G were the first and probably the last devices made by the formerly American OEM in a cooperation with Google. Not so long ago, we talked about the Moto G receiving an unofficial CyanogenMod port. Now, however, the G and a few other Motorola devices will receive official CyanogenMod nightlies.
The CM team has released three unified builds, which is a bit of a surprising move, considering that the list of supported devices is quite long. The “mysterious” moto_msm8960 build will work with the Photon Q, Atrix HD, Razr M, and Droid Razr HD. The second build, dubbed moto_msm8960dt, sh. . . READ ON »

Before today, Samsung has been very cautious in tempering expectations regarding official Android 4.4 KitKat updates for its recent devices. While certain phones have already received the 4.4.2 goods, much of the rest of the company’s lineup is still in Jelly Bean limbo. We’ve seen leaks fly around left and right for the Galaxy S 4, but official word regarding KitKat for the device has been lacking. And since this is just for their latest and greatest, the future didn’t look so hot for Samsung’s older devices.
