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.
