hello guys, i bought a galaxy s4 BE and i am first owner and opened seal myself, evrything is black and ahve the black back faux leather battery cover like the note 3. so the thing is it booted to regular s4 firmware without any new boot sound, wallpapers of blackedition nor the ringtones. it made an update to 4.4.2 so i left it to find also no new stuff, so i downloaded this indian black edition firmware as i cant roll back to 4.3 anymore and flashed it only to find the same stuff again, did a factory reset and cleared cache, all the same.

i used the android kitchen to extract system.img and look into it i found that it was just normal firmware from inside without and new wallpapers or ringotens

can anybody provide some help or advice please? how come the firmware that has blackedition on it and i9500Y in the CSC doesnt have the BE stuff, im really annoyed.

Hi Guys,

I am using Galaxy s4 Black edition India (INS).On the box,the android version was kitkat 4.4.2,but i didn't notice the build and csc no.

Recently,the phone got updated to Lollipop 5.0.1,I'm not satisfied with the performance.I need kitkat os back.

Please let me know the official firmware.From SAM mobile,I guessed the below firmware might be the official one which was on the box,

Model GT-I9500
Model name GALAXY S4
Country India (Black Edition)
Version Android 4.4.2
Changelist 923538

Product code INS

Anyone using GS4 Black edition kitkat version,Please let me know the firmware details.
