Manual XXUEMJ5 firmware based Android 4.3 Jellybean ROM update for Galaxy S4


Samsung has officially upgrade Galaxy S4 to Android 4.3 base. That was rolled out through usual OTA method. The biggest drawback of such OTA method is the time delay that gets introduced because of the region limitations. Samsung has rolled out it in India yesterday. But still it will take several days to cover each and every region out there in country. So to avoid any kind of delay here comes one manual method through which you can update your Galaxy S4 with official XXUEMJ5 firmware based Android 4.3 Jellybean ROM.

XXUEMJ5 Firmware is the same firmware that is brought by Samsung in global update. It is going to provide awesome features with less power and Gear extension. Being an official upgrade, it will not harm Galaxy S4 from any measure. All in all you can anytime give it a try. If you have to choose between OTA and manual method (in case both are available in your area) then please go with OTA method. It is a simple method and don’t requires any special tools, complex tutorials etc.

In case no OTA is rolled out in your area and you want it as soon as possible, then you can freely go with the manual method. It is a simple method which can be installed with Odin tool.

1. Follow these pre-requisites.
2. Download the XXUEMJ5 Package to your computer.
