After two days of using the new Kazakhstan 4.4.4 firmware i can say that i am very satisfied with the new kitkat ,also root instructions have been very successful for me..everything work like a charm! The biggest change was to be observed in the use of RAM memory (very important for speed)

Careful:
dont flash indian 4.4.4 cuz it is of 1.2 ghz processors not for 1.4 ghz processors it just hard brick my device

I wonder how we will know in advance if flashing a firmware provided by sammobile will brick our phone? I checked Indian build.prop file and it does not show anything different from Kazakistan or Hongkong. Maybe Indian changes the partition table?

Hi, considering that these ROMs also flash the modem, which you installed the ROM from the Kazakhstan or Hong Kong are achieving normally use 3G here in Brazil?

I also read on the net that the ROM Hong Kong has PT-BR language, someone installed and can confirm this?

Thks...

    The latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat version is now available for download on the Samsung Galaxy SIII Neo GT-I9300I.

    The dual-SIM smartphone was launched back in April running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but now it has been brought up to date. The Snapdragon 400-powered Galaxy SIII Neo I9300I is a dual-SIM droid with 4.8" Super AMOLED HD screen, an 8MP rear cam, and 16GB expandable storage. It has a single-SIM sibling, called Galaxy SIII Neo I9301I, but it is running on KitKat since launch.

    The new update brings all the latest Android optimizations and bug fixes, faster and more fluid interface, transparent status bar, among others. The update should be waiting for you via the OTA service. It sould become available (if not already) on Samsung KIES too.

    Apparently the update is seeding in selected Asian countries. The process is gradual, but it will eventually hit everyone worldwide.

    Via GSM Arena.


    Firmware is now available to download on SAM Mobile, currently for Kazakhstan, Hong Kong and India.
    http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/1/?model=GT-I9300I&pcode=0#firmware

    Other countries will follow. Check the link above for firmware details, download and how to flash.

    Also, there is already ROOT and TWRP 2.7.1.0 for 4.4.4 on SIII Neo, check the link below.
