This is not russian this is indian firmware only.
Totally agree. Will rather use and enjoy the phone current OS, until the update dropped by.
Hi,i am from India. After a long wait I just flash my mobile to Russian firmware. yeah,now its android kit Kat. The only main difference I felt was the notification panel ,its now white icon, and also you will get 9 extra app which is no use. You cannot use this app because of Russian version. I think performance was better. Just now only flash so cant see that much change. But ya its a good version to use.;those who cant wait for long can update this version, nothing wrong in that. Later use the original version when the updates gets...

Whats the point of this spamming and endless discussions? The firmware is scheduled to be released. I'm happy about that. Pinning a date to it will only raise expectations that might just fail.
I'd rather just continue with my life and update it whenever it comes. Its a great phone and I'm quite happy using it right now. I'm sure KitKat will make it better, but how is the time going to affect it?
Today, tomorrow or next month, KitKat will eventually be here. It's beyond our control. Accept it and move on. There is a life beyond updating my phone too.
ramesg, 23 Feb 2014How can you know about this details?I've talked to one of my colleague who works at Samsung Software Division.
He said that the firmware is already ready but the main issue is the heavy server loads.
And even on the release date not all are gonna be able to download it via OTA.
Manually downloaded firmware file should be available at Sammobile
Just be confirmed the Indian version is receiving new firmware before the end of Feb.
By the time Russia downloads saturate, it will start rolling out in India.
The GT-I9505 users, bad news: Firmware is not gonna release before the first week of March.
It is said to be released on 25th Feb just before the turn over of 1st March. Samsung is having issues of rolling out updates due to heavy load in servers.
