Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Android Software Update Repository

This page allows you to take a sneak peek of Samsung Galaxy Note III latest software update. This is only a list that I gathered up altogether, so each and every Samsung Galaxy Note 3 owners can see and can take a look forward if their devices is already up to date.  Software Updates on Samsung Galaxy Note 3 may released in stages,  and not everyone can get an update at the same time. All software updates can take several days and even take months for delivery on some countries.  Occasionally, Samsung may released only the first firmware update on select countries and/or carrier operators.  The list below are all software updates based only from the real-time releases from most reliable and trusted source.

How to Update the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to the latest Software Release

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. You can download Samsung Kies from here, and install it on your Windows or Mac computer. Choose the Kies 3 which supports the Galaxy Note 3 and other Samsung devices running with 4.3 .  Once you installed Kies 3, all you need is connect your Galaxy Note 3 to the computer using the USB cable, then simply run and follow the Kies on-screen software update instructions.

Important Notes 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. So not also remove the battery during the software update process. A power failures may cause damaged to your device that resulted as we so-called it  soft-bricks, 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 when 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.
  • Your device should not been modified, there is a certain circumstances that a modified Samsung Galaxy Note 3 may not accept any official  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.

Checking your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 software build version is too very easy, you can simply type this secret code *#1234# or from home screen simply tap Menu>>Settings>>About Device. It will then shows you the current software build version.
