How to Update the Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900 to 4.4.2 KitKat N900XXUENG1

Update to 4.4.2 KitKat N900XXUENG1 via Over-The-Air (OTA)

There are two types you can update your Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the first method is Firmware Update through over the air or called as OTA update, which usually a notification message will directly sent to you and saying that there is a new update available for download. You can also tap on your Galaxy Note 3 Settings>>General tab, scroll to and tap System Update. It will automatically tells you that a new update is available or your software is up to date when there is none yet. You can simply tap install now when you want to perform an update or install later.

The second method is a firmware update through Samsung Kies.

Important Note Before Performing Software Update

According to Samsung you should prepare the following things before performing the software update. I will also add some useful insights why you should follow this procedures.

  • You should make sure your battery is fully charged before performing the software update. Do not also remove the battery during the software update is in progress. A power failures may cause damaged to your device that might results as we so-called   “soft-bricks”.  If this happens your device may just stuck on Samsung logo or welcome screen and can’t reboot normally.
  • You should back-up your important files, including contacts, emails, messages, photos, videos, apps and other stuff. Like I said while during software update process is interrupted there is a possibility that your data stored from your device internal SD card may lose or deleted when a sudden unexpected failure happens and it forces you to perform a factory.
  • Your device should not been modified or rooted, there is a certain circumstances that a modified and rooted Samsung Galaxy Note 3 may not accept any official software update anymore or it can accept an update but it might harm your device once the update has made.  Learn about the new Samsung KNOX security suite. Most known error that says ‘firmware upgrade encountered an issue, please select recovery mode in kies and try again‘ you should try to avoid that from happening.

If it happens that your a proud owner of the Galaxy Note 3 and have managed updating to  N900XXUENG1 4.4.2,  just please share to us some of your thoughts about it. Is there any other improvements you’ve noticed that hasn’t around there before?  How about the battery life performance, as well as the smoothness, speed  while browsing apps, SMS, videos, photos, contacts and among other else?

  1. I think this update disable air gesture to switch between tab in stock internet browser..
    I cannot change tab anymore using swiping motion in the air like it used to be before this update..
    other function like switch page in gallery, playing next music, etc work fine..
    looks like Samsung delete or disable that switch tab in stock browser after this update..
    pretty bad move..

  2. Sir.. thanks fot the information.
    I would like ask a question. Now 4.4.4 update is available for sm n900. My device was purchased from UAE. Will there be any issues if I update my note3 from india.?
    Pls reply.

    1. No official 4.4.4 update yet on SM-N900.. If it still runs on UAE default firmware you can’t see an update if your outside Middle East area.
      You should convert or flashed it with Indian Firmware so you can update on Kies and OTA.
