Default 4.3 UPDATE FOR GALAXY s4 mini

Customers of three big Canadian carriers, Bell, Rogers and Telus, reported this weekend that their Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S4 mini handsets are getting updated to Android 4.3. The update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 weighs in at a hefty 790MB and besides Android 4.3, the update also brings Samsung KNOX to both phones. This offers a secure set of applications that are protected from malware and viruses. We're talking about a browser, calendar, contacts and email applications that are in a "secure container" allowing you to use them for work without fear.

The update also makes both devices compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch and adds performance and UI improvements along with security enhancements. The update to the Samsung Galaxy S4 brings build number I337MVLUEMK6 to the phone while the new build version for the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is I257MVLUAMK5.

The update has been arriving to both models OTA and if you haven't received the notification yet, you can try to coax it out of the phone by going to Settings > About > Software Update.

Seeing as the firmware starts with "I257" it's probably not for the I9192, but I could be wrong.

The firmware will probably be for the Bell S 4 Mini SGH-I257M, which is pretty close to the LTE S 4 Mini version GT-I9195, so the LTE version might be the next to get 4.3.

If I had to guess it'll still be a while for the GT-I9190 and GT-I9192 but who knows when it comes to official updates.

Yes, you are right. But hopefully the 4.3 updates for other s4 mini models will be released. Like what happened with GALAXY S3. Initially Galaxy s3 international version got the JB 4.3 update and later t-mobile and other carriers got JB 4.3 for s3.

This KNOX is another portion of Samsung's crappy bloatware, right? I hope it can be disabled.

Of course not. It keeps your emails and personal data secure, the same as locked bootloaders keep phones stock.
(And yeah, it can be easily removed)

Anyone with the Verizon variant received it yet? I'm interested in a dump of the boot and system partitions.

I have a hunch that they messed up in the support document, as the build number they listed in the beginning is JDQ39, which is 4.2, but later in the document they mention 4.3. So hard to say what to believe, although I think it's only 4.2.
