Official Android 4.3 Firmware for Galaxy S4 (I9500 & I9505)

Rejoice… The official Android 4.3 firmware for Samsung Galaxy S4 (both I9500 and I9505) is here. Yes, you can enjoy the latest and greatest Android 4.3 features and improvements from Samsung. However, it does bring one thing that I don’t prefer – KNOX support (which is not friendly with root access and custom modification = warranty void). So far we can’t reverse KNOX status now. The implementation is already in Galaxy Note 3 and pushing to Galaxy S4 latest firmware now. So far, India, Indonesia, Russia and Vietnam already received the update. Malaysia should come soon…
