Many users were complaining about broken compatibility with third-party accessories since Samsung launched the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Galaxy Note 3. Apparently most of the S View-like third-party cases stopped working after the update.
Samsung has recently acknowledged the issues with non-Samsung accessories and promised a fix.
Well, the fix is now ready and Samsung has started seeding the new firmware to the Galaxy Note 3 phablets out there. To get it, your Galaxy Note 3 must be already running on Android 4.4 KitKat, of course.
As it was with the original KitKat update, Poland's S800-powered Galaxy Note 3 is the first model to get the fix. Other countries will be joining in any moment now though, so stay tuned.
My phone note 3 flip cover not working
I have fixed the issue with the S view unofficial cover not working. Just turn off your phone, remove the cover, reattach the cover and turn on your phone issue is fixed. Hope that helps
Taking the back off while the phone is still on worked for me. Very impressed with such as easy fix!
