The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is now available for the Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900). Currently the 4.4.2 update is only live in Russia, but should be rolling out across the globe over the comings days. As usual carrier banded devices will have to wait a little longer, or you could always flash the update yourself when it shows up. The Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005, that’s the Snapdragon 800 CPU version, received the same Android 4.4.2 update last week.
I’m sure you’re all familiar with the new KitKat features, but for a quick recap here are some of the more Samsung specific ones:
As with all Samsung devices, updates can be downloaded and installed by connecting your Galaxy Note 3 to your computer and using Samsung’s Kies software. Alternatively, to manually check for an update over-the-air head on over to Settings > More > About Device > Software update > Update.

Good job Samsung rolling out the kitkat update. Now bring it to the s3 and note 2.
Will never happen
They already plan on getting it to the S3 and Note 2 in late-March (albeit the last update for these two phones).
Actually it’s happening in late Q1 as stated by a samsung insider
When will it come to Sprint?
Same here, waiting for att to rolls out kit Kat for my note 3. For some reason my device is not compatible with firmware update through kies on PC.
It should be in early-Feb or the last few days of January.
so I can’t find details — are the immproved benchmarks because of added HMP support? It doesn’t make sense for them to port the Note 3 Neo’s 4.4.2 to HMP and not bring the same changes (mostly driver) to the current vanilla Note 3.
Hopefully coming to S4 soon….although don’t care if the toggles are white, green, or whatever color just the fact that they’re still there is a major disappointment.
That’s the best part of touchwiz… a lot more useful than vanilla Android.
The amount of unnecessary space it hogs up in the notification tray outweighs any benefi
It doesn’t use that much space and is way better than the way vanilla Android has them. But whatever, to each his own.
An app called Settings Extended will provide the same functionality of the power toggles. Vanilla Android is still better than TouchWiz in terms of speed and simplicity. Most importantly we’ve been enjoying super fast Android Runtime and you are still using the laggy Dalvik Runtime in your Note 3.
You are a little bit late aren’t you?
And looks like you didn’t actually read my post. I never said touchwiz was better than vanilla Android, only talked about the toggles. And just so you know, I have a note 3 and a Nexus 5 with ART and most of the time I use Note for all the little extra things it has. I know it’s cool to hate on touchwiz and Samsung these days, but if you actually use one someday you will find they are not as bad as people want them to be. Also many games don’t play well with ART.
Love my verizon stock galaxy s 4!
I don’t need to own Samsung bloated phones, because I’ve been helping my friends to flash CM and I will have the chance to get my hands on most of the flagship phones in the market. Nope, as far as I know, every popular games are compatible with ART, unless you’re talking about those laggy Gingerbread games, Yes…TouchWiz sucks.
Cool story bro. Have a nice day.
Bad story bro, have a bad day.
Can’t wait for the update to kitkat on my T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3. Hopefully the update comes around march or sooner.
I thought we can use the 900 update on tmobile note 3
Does anybody know if 4.4 has come to uk
Это ебаный пиздец
When do US T-mobile version get their taste of kit lat?
No offence, but this article is like a dozen others saying the same thing, except it’s covering news almost a week old now.
We know it’s released in russia and NOWHERE else yet. THe point of news is not supposed to be something that repeats what has been said dozens of times already.
I suppose the HTC shill Amine Elouikal(sp) will be along shortly to tell us some BS about how Samsung’s KitKat update is laggy and everybody should have got a HTC One instead.
It appears my Rogers Note 3 is updating to something. It was actually off. Started itself and now says “Downloading… Do not turn off target!!
I hope this is the normal screen. It has been 15 minutes and no look of action. I come out of walmart picking up photo prints with a dead battery and now Im a little nervous if it has enough power to do it.
When does it roll out for us Verizon note 3?
Just upgraded to Kitkat 4.4.2 on Note 3 SM-N9005 and the Lockscreen when protected with PIN code does not display the camera shortcut. Was this not supposed to be fixed with Kitkat ? Need to use
PIN for cie security reason so starting to miss my Iphone …. Any help welcome..
