  • Description: This firmware was released as an official OTA to I537UCUAMF2 and pushed to phones shortly after it's release on June 21, 2013. It is a minor update released as a fix for issues powering on the phone after charging. While the update has been captured, there is no way to apply this update if you're not on stock I537UCUAMF2 firmware. You can go to the Samsung Experience Shop at your local Best Buy and they should be able to flash your phone to stock I537UCUAMF3 firmware. A brief description about the update was found on Samsung's website here. More information about this can be found in this thread.

This can be flashed to the phone from any other version of firmware except I537UCUBML2 (see below). Since this is pre-release firmware there is no way to receive official OTA updates. Your only options are to flash either I537UCUAMF1 above or I537UCUBML2 below. There is another method to get the I537UCUAMF3 described above.

  • SafeStrap for ML2: Thread 1
  • Description: This is the official version of Android 4.3 pushed to phones via OTA on January 7, 2014. Shortly thereafter an Odin package was posted that contains the entire firmware, not just the update package that was pushed via OTA. This firmware adds compatibility with the Samsung Galaxy Gear, enables drag and drop to uninstall or disable applications, and adds more AT&T bloat. Since new bootloaders are included in this update there is currently no other way to downgrade to any of the other firmwares. A brief changelog for the release by AT&T can be found here. Please read this important note about the ML2 bootloader before flashing, it provides a way to preserve the ability to downgrade. A listing of failed root methods and discussion for ML2 can be found in this thread.

  • Root method: Discussion Thread This method has been superceded by towelroot.
  • Baseband & IMEI Fix: Thread
  • Description: This is the official version of Android 4.4.2 pushed to phones via OTA on April 16, 2014. This firmware updates the phone to 4.4.2 and adds some additional features as well. A brief changelog for the release by AT&T can be found here (Screenshot). A slightly longer changelog can be found on Samsung's website here.

    On April 21, 2014 AT&T and Samsung removed the ability to download the OTA due to bugs and possible bricks. AT&T has posted about the removal on its website.

    In order to flash this file you must be on stock, unrooted ML2. You can then rename the downloaded OTA file to update.zip and flash it through stock recovery.

  • Baseband & IMEI Fix: Thread
  • Description: This is the official version of Android 4.4.2 pushed to phones via OTA on June 6, 2014. It is a re-released version of the 4.4.2 firmware that fixes the issues that were caused by the previous 4.4.2 OTA update. A brief changelog for the release by AT&T can be found here (Screenshot). A slightly longer changelog can be found on Samsung's website here (Screenshot).

    In order to flash the OTA files you must be on stock, unrooted firmware. You can then rename the downloaded OTA file to update.zip and flash it through stock recovery. If you're currently on ML2 (4.3) then flash the 444 MB file. If you're on NC9 (4.4.2) meaning you took the original 4.4.2 update that was full of bugs, then flash the 66.4 MB file. If you've rooted or modified the system in any way then you have to flash the Full Odin Package, this process will completely wipe your phone.

    In order to flash the OTA files you must be on stock, unrooted NE3 firmware. You can then rename the downloaded OTA file to update.zip and flash it through stock recovery. If you've rooted or modified the system in any way then you have to flash the Full NE3 Odin Package, this process will completely wipe your phone.

Saferoot ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2565758 ) worked for MI2 for me. Is there anyone who has tried it (or would be willing to try it) on ML2? I'm sorry if this has been covered somewhere. I just spent the past hour or so catching up on things I've missed in the past few weeks and didn't see record of anyone attempting it, but I easily could have missed it.

There are some discussions in this thread, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2606550, about how MI2 works but ML2 does not. Once again, there still is no root whatsoever for the official 4.3 (ML2) for the time being. (1/31/14)

Also on a side note, a lot of people are getting confused between MI2 root which is root for the "LEAKED" version of 4.3 and ML2 which is the "OFFICIAL" version of 4.3 which can't be rooted as of now. Just hopefully people will catch on the difference between MI2 and ML2

This is the same as what is posted in the Thread 2 root method under MI2.

Please read the descriptions for the firmware in the OP. If you want to be on the latest official firmware, flash ML2. You will lose root with no way to get it back and you will not be able to downgrade to any other firmware. If this is troubling to you then flash anything else.
