XXUCNI1 Android 4.4.2 firmware can now be installed on any Galaxy S4 Active I9295 out there. It’s been a while since Samsung shed some love on this water-proof variant of the Galaxy S4. However, this build has come through with all the necessary changes and updates. We expect XXUCNI1 firmware to extensively fix any of the issues residing in previous KitKat builds.

Those who are left from the update list, have our guide as a viable option. We will show you how you can update your phone manually. Do keep in mind that I9295XXUCNI1 firmware is an official firmware by Samsung, not a custom or modified firmware. You can easily update Galaxy S4 Active I9295 to XXUCNI1 Android 4.4.2 KitKat official firmware. Please note, you do not need to have ClockworkMod Recovery installed in order to install this firmware.

Backup and Other Important Tips

Done with the USB drivers? Perfect. The tutorial is on the next page, but first, please take a look at the following tips and important points you need to take care of. These are important, as we don’t want anyone losing their personal data or apps:

Always backup your important data that you might need after you install a new custom ROM, an official software update or anything else. Make a backup for just in case, you never know when anything might go wrong. See below for some tips on how to backup data:

Samsung users can also back up data using Samsung KIES. If you backup data manually, you get more options what to choose from and it is very easy to move data across Android devices from different manufacturers, i.e moving Samsung Galaxy Note backup data to HTC One X.

If you already have a custom recovery (ClockworkMod, TWRP etc.) installed on your phone, we strongly recommend a backup using that as it creates a complete image of your existing phone set up.

A few more optional tips that you should remember:

1. Having problems connecting your Android phone to the computer? You need to enable USB debugging mode. See here: How to Enable USB Debugging — for Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich and KitKat.

2. Make sure your Android device is charged up to 80-85% battery level. This might help you: How to Check Battery Percentage. Why? Because, if your phone goes off suddenly while installing a custom ROM, flashing an official firmware update or installing mods etc. — your phone might get bricked or go dead permanently. No one wants that, right?

4. Most of the tutorials and how-to guides on Team Android are for factory unlocked Android phones and tablets. We recommend NOT to try our guides if your phone is locked to a carrier, unless we have specified the carrier name or device model.

All set and ready? Good. You can now head over to the next page and update Galaxy S4 Active I9295 to Android 4.4.2 XXUCNI1 official firmware update.
