Galaxy Note 3 flip cover

Update also addresses issues with writing to external SD cards introduced in the previous update

Following up on an odd bug in the Galaxy Note 3 KitKat update that broke compatibility with some third-party accessories, a new update to address the problem has started rolling out just a few weeks after Samsung claimed it was working on a fix. As is usually the case, things are kicking off in Europe on the quad-core Exynos version (N9005) of the handset, specificially those sold in Poland and Russia. Users in those countries are seeing build number XXUENB3 pulled down to their phones with a normal OTA update.

On top of a fix for third-party accessories, the update also reportedly fixes issues with writing to external SD cards that was introduced in the update as well. Folks here in the U.S. with Qualcomm-based Galaxy Note 3 variants from carriers will likely have to wait a little while for the update to pass testing and jump through the proper hoops, but we wouldn't expect it to take too long.

You know what?

Even with a quarter million different phone models Samsung still manages to support (most) of them.

I am not giving them many kudos on this one. They pooched it to start with and caused the haters to think the world was falling. This really was a QC issue that should have never seen the light of day.

At least they fixed it in a reasonable amount of time and didn't throw it out there too widely just to get KK out to the Note and S4

Neither am I. Never should have happened in the first place.

Yep, never in a million years. You would have thought someone at Samsung had a third party case. I will tell you what though I was kinda pissed/worried since I got the Spigen case for Christmas and love it...

It's so damn adorable that people still think this was an innocent mistake. Damn y'all are some gullible people.

So, ATT has to give us KK update to break it and then get around to this second update? I will have the Note6 running Tizen by then.


I though I had already seen a thread like this. When is it gonna get here?
