Hi,

My apologies if this has been discussed somewhere else.

I just received the official Note 3 upgrade for Kit Kat 4.4.2 this morning.
Upgraded and.....
...my (original) s-view flip cover has stopped working.

Checked the contacts, checked the settings-device-accesories page to see if it was still activated.....all looks normal.

Can't find out what the problem is and can't find anybody else who is having this problem.

Any idea?

I have a N-9005 NOT rooted

Thanks

I can' test now but I do notice the S View sometimes won't work if the phone get restart.

Try Power Off the phone and turn on later see it is working or not.

Samsung is BAD!

Samsung did some changes on S View in latest 4.4.2 ROM.

I have 3 S View cover/case and only the Genuine Samsung S View Flip Cover is working!

Not working for counterfeit one, include Genuine Spigen SlimArmor View !!! OMG!

Until today I THOUGHT I owned an original S-view from Samsung...

....from what you said I might have been wrong after all.

My S-view chip says A10T8K

I hope this can be "sorted" in some way...I have two of these flip cases and I really liked the way they worked

Thanks for now

It's been one of those days at work, so I'll have a look at it in a bit, but if anyone is feeling upto it, you have a starting point.... Why oh Why did they have to start detecting 'grey' cases.....

I've just ordered a spigen too. I'm sure one of the devs can sort it if Samsung have modded something
