Official Android 4.3 I9505XXUEMJ5 Firmware for the Galaxy S 4

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is now available in official capacity for the Samsung Galaxy S 4. With the recently leaked Android 4.3 I9505XXUEMJ3 firmware floating around, we knew that the official release wasn’t far behind. Now, it’s here in official capacity.

XDA Recognized Developer Faryaab has posted the release to our forums courtesy of Sammobile, along with simple instructions on how to get it up and running on your device. This release is intended for German devices, and would normally be installed via Kies or OTA. However, for those living outside Germany, Faryaab has posted simple instructions to flash the firmware on an S 4 from any region using Odin (with your device in download mode).

If you prefer TouchWiz to the various source-built ROMs and have been itching to install official 4.3 on your S 4, head over to the firmware thread to get started.
