    I'm after downgrading this to the last gen so wondered if someone is looking to upgrade theirs.
    See pics for condition, it comes boxed with all accessories, a Sandisk 32gb card and is running the Official Samsung 4.4.2 Kitkat rom

    An S3, HTC One X or Optimus 4x would be fine but the condition needs to be very good.
    I value this at £280.

    I have an 8gb nexus 4 which I'm looking to upgrade. Has chips to the chrome bezel on each of the 4 corners but front and back glass/screen is mint...

    Thanks for the offer but there is no way I could live with 8gb and as the N4 doesn't have an SD card slot there is no way I could expand it.

    I have exactly what you need but shame you have upgraded software to kitkat 4.4 which more or less kills flash. I have S3 but need a S4 with jellybean, as I do use websites that require flash player.

    I use the Flashfox browser from the Play store (Firefox with flash built in) which works perfectly and doesn't need any further flash.apk installation.

    I could also downgrade it to an Official JB firmware if required or flash any rom of your choosing.

    Yes I use flashfox time to time as well but annoyed with their ads :) What was the official JB firmware the phone came with then? 4.2.2 or 4.3?

    Are you actually able to downgrade to official stock JB firmware the phone came with after upgrading to Kitkat 4.4?

    I remember reading somewhere recently that once the kitkat 4.4 installed, it changes something on the bootloader preventing it from further downgrading.

    What you are referring to is Knox bootloader, this was present in the 4.3 stock firmwares so I can just flash a Knox locked 4.3 firmware with no issue, or could root, install custom recovery and flash any firmware I choose.

    Sorry way too low.

    Ok you seem to know what you are talking about. I am not quite sure how exactly these updates work.

    Obviously I wouldn’t want any rooting for warranty purposes but I would be happy if you could downgrade it back to official stock software whatever it came with.

    Would you be able to flash it back to official JB version what it came with? If you can, what version is it please?

    Basically if you can confirm that you can put it back to factory installed software I would be interested in trading my S3 for your S4 obviously some money going your way.

    Cheers

    I can put back to Jelly Bean 4.3 which has a build date of 27th Jan 2014, there are a few security patches in there as well some minor performance enhancements. The firmware info would be:

    PDA: I9505XXUENAA CSC: I9505YXXENA7 MODEM: I9505XXUENAA

    This was the last 'over the air' update it got before I gave 4.4.2 Kitkat a try at the start of Feb.

    If you are interested in proceeding could you post some pictures of the handset, highlighting the condition and what price you value it at? Thanks.

    Ok I would be happy with Jelly Bean 4.3 providing that does not involve any rooting etc for warranty purposes. I'll post some pictures tonight when I get home.

    Cheers

    Hi there here is the some pictures. Condition is very good as you can see from the pictures. One thing I didn't have was a screen protector, it got bubbly and I removed it as I couldn't use it with but it has been in original flip cover since day one.

    One thing I forgot to ask was how long you had the phone please. I bought mine brand new from these forums back in July.

    Cheers.

    Hi Alex,

    Yep condition looks excellent and just what I'm after.
    I got this as an upgrade last April from P4U.

    Stick a value on yours bud if you want to go any further and we'll talk about the difference.

    Right then I value mine about £180 but the difference is still a bit higher than I'd like to pay. Any suggestion?

    Ah that's a shame......

    If the difference is already higher than you want to pay then I think we are a world apart because I'd want more than a £100 in my pocket for the exchange based on current selling prices.

    If I don't get that I'll just keep it.

    I think you are right we are a world apart as another S4 has just been sold for £230 that was only 5 months old. As you say shame anyway good luck with your sale. You have a cracking phone I am sure someone will snatch it soon.

    Cheers

    Yep I saw that which also means your S3 can't be worth £180 as the difference between the handsets is more than £50.

    Anyhow thanks for the interest Alex and good luck with your search bud.

    It's a longshot but I really want an S4 rather than what I bought, however when I was in the shop I just completely ignored the S4 because of how good the Samsung Galaxy Mega looked next to it lol. The screen is huge and as a gamer I loved that.

    I don't dislike the phone but I'd prefer the S4. I know it isn't on your want list but would you do a straight swap for my Mega? (even saying the name sounds funny lol).

    Spec wise I think yours is better, which would be better for gaming for me (these are assumptions, I am clueless with phones really). Also is your phone unlocked?
