No, it is similar but different (?). Turn your phone OFF completely. Then restart by holding Volume UP and the Home button together, and while holding those down press the POWER button until the Samsung logo appears. (Three button reset). Then release all three buttons and you will see the Android robot appear and the phone will enter Recovery mode. Use the Vol Up/Dn button to select 'wipe cache partition' and press the Power button. When the menu reappears select 'Reboot system now' and press the Power button again and your phone will reboot.

You don't seem to have any idea of how updating works; you would rather rant and rave without finding out.
Let's say for instance that Samsung finish an update on 01/11/13. They then have to send the update out to each carrier in each country for approval. The carrier installs the update and then tries it out for let's say 2 weeks. Then the carrier reports back to Samsung on 15/11/13 and wants an alteration to the Firmware. Samsung have rewrite the Firmware and then send it out again. 2 weeks later the carrier reports back to Samsung approving the Firmware (now 28/11/13) and it gets released.
You moan about the slow update on your laptop. It's your connection at fault, not Samsung's problem.
My OTA update took less than 30 minutes. The file size is 1.6Gb, what do you expect on a laptop.
I downloaded a backup the Firmware for my own use. Now, I have a 60Mb Broadband Fibre Optic connection and that download took about 20 minutes (it took that long because it was a busy time of day).
Stop blaming everyone else.

Flashing an official Samsung ROM does not trip the binary counter, but be careful where you source the ROM from. I always use:
because the ROM's there are taken off of the Samsung servers. The file size is just over 1.6Gb. If you use Official Firmware then your warranty is safe.
One tip I would pass on. Before flashing, put your phone into Recovery mode first and flush out the cache partition. That removes any problem of old files causing a conflict. I recommend that because once when I flashed my S3 it went into a 'bootloop' because of old Firmware files left behind causing a problem.
I want to uninstall the system updates that I updated via OTA and update it again through Kies.
can anyone help me please?
s3 4.8 inch, s4 5 inch now s5 may be 5.5 inches and s6 6 inches. all are doing same. make everything large.
jrc9830, 03 Sep 2013How to get flash player on this phone?????Try to search for apps in the google play store.
armygruntjoe, 04 Sep 2013I bought this I9500 in Iraq. Will it work in the U.S.?yes you can use but you have to reset your phone first
There is an app called app locker which can be used. download it from the play store
i just wanna ask if i flash the official firmware via odin does it increase the flash counter and does the device status still remains to official?by doing this will i void the phone's warranty??
S4 is the Best mobile in the world. Super amoled screen, features, functionality, innovations are stunning. Iphone still use dull lcd screen and software has limited functions.But I found iphone is more durable and less lags.From previous experience .I don't know how it works.
