Galaxy Mega 6.3 LTE I9205 is going to secure Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean variant if you follow the instructions in this tutorial.

To get the OS we mentioned, your phone will have to be flushed with XXUAMH2. This is official firmware that Samsung themselves let out in the world.

Requirements

To get to this official tool, your first aim will be to go through all of the upcoming requirements:

  • only your Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 LTE I9205 is the phone model that our guide is fully compatible with;
  • download Odin tool v3.07 (from this location) and the new XXUAMH2 official firmware (file name: I9205XXUAMH2_I9205OXXBMH1_BTU.zip) on your notebook;
  • get USB drivers for the phone on your laptop;
  • only the carrier and factory unlocked phone works with the tutorial;
  • create backups via these instructions;
  • turn on USB Debugging;
  • charge your handset’s battery.Galaxy-Mega-6.3-LTE-I9205

Instructions

Then, as soon as the pre-requisites are a thing of the past, you will be shown how to update your handset with some steps. Which are all compulsory.

  1. Starting with the first one that needs you to unzip the two zip files that are on your laptop; when this is over, Odin tool 3.07.exe and .tar.md5 will be the two files that will play an important role in the guide.
  2. The GT-I9205 needs to be in a powered off state if you want to continue the tutorial. By which we mean that you have to enter the phone, when it’s in off mode, in Download Mode. The path to this mode contains the following guidelines: press and simultaneously hold Volume Down + Home + Power, release them when Android logo pops on the display and press only Volume Up.
  3. You now have to allow for Administrator rights on your handset, so launch the Odin tool as Admin by right-clicking odin.exe, going to Context Menu afterwards and, from there, choosing “Run as Administrator“.
  4. Now you should plug your phone to your PC; the Odin will tell you that everything is alright by showing a yellow ID:COM box port and an “Added!!” message. Then, when the connection shows signs of not going smoothly, you can solve the problem by opting for one of these instructions: use a different USB port or install the USB drivers again.
  5. If the plugging went well from the first try, you can continue the tutorial by doing as follows: tap “PDA”, choose the .tar.md5 file, click on “Phone“, opt for a MODEM file, tap “CSC”, choose a file with CSC contained in the name, click on “PIT” and opt for a file with .pit as its main extension.
  6. When you have chosen all of the previous buttons and their respective files, you can turn on the boxes with Repartition (if you chose the .pit file), F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot on them.
  7. The process of update will commence after you click on “Start”. Wait a bit for it to end. The handset is going to tell you when the upgrade is over by rebooting and displaying “PASS“.
  8. Unplug the phone from your notebook then and make sure you go to the device’s “About phone” afterwards to look for the new Jelly Bean firmware.

When your smartphone shows a booting animation on loop, you need to perform this: enter Recovery Mode and opt for “Factory reset/Wipe data” and then select “Wipe cache partition” before restarting your Galaxy Mega 6.3 LTE I9205 and enjoying the well-deserved upgrade.
