The company where I am working provided me with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (I have a Note2 on my own, so it was pretty straight forward getting used to it!).
The current mobile status is at it follows:
Bootloader : N9005XXUBMI7
Baseband : N9005XXUBMI6
Basically, I'm running under an old version of Android 4.3 . Is there any real reason to update it to a newer firmware (Samsung official, I do not want to mess up with a rooted mobile..it is not my mobile after all) ? Is there any *real* improvement in using the device with KitKat (battery life, smoother, etc) ?
I'm asking that because I am still regretting the moment when I decided to update my N7100 from 4.1.2 to 4.3 (and then to 4.4.2)... so I don't really want to update the Note 3 and regretting the update afterwards... (..and then finding out that no, it is not possible to go back to the previous version).
Last firmware available in Australia is N9005XXUENE3_N9005XSAENE1_XSA : with the official XSA I have some apps for free in the App Store (which comes pretty handy). Perhaps, I may try the New Zealand one too (N9005XXUGNG1_N9005NZCGNH1_NZC) that looks more recent.
Or, perhaps, is there any 100% stable leaked firmware made by one of you, based on an official Samsung rom, lighter, cleaned of most of the bloatwares AND a safe way to root the mobile without tripping the Knox?
Thank you all
