    Can anyone report on sd card functionality? 4.4 apparently breaks the ability to write to the sd card, if this issue is confirmed I'm going to be looking for a way to block the update.

    It seems to me that if you don't set your phone to update automatically you will not be required to update to 4.4. I could be wtong about yhis so fellow forum members plesse correct me if I am mistaken

    Yes you always have to select "agree and install" but I would like to avoid the persistent notification bar nag which means commanding the phone not to download the update.

    I just checked the developer's page of pdanet and found that my hotspot will no longer work via Wi-Fi. So needless to say I'm out of this update for sure. Hopefully, they can update it to function with kit Kat...

    I check for new updates and all I get is the "software update is currently unavailable" message.

    If you're rooted, you can block all system updates by freezing "SDM1.0" with Titanium Backup.

    OK, what does it say above the check for new software update button before you hit it. It should show all previous updates. On mine I see one from 12/16/13 and one from 10/29/13. This can vary by a few days, and the number of past updates may vary depending on when your phone was "born".

    Reading up on this, it appears that it does not break SD cards per se, but does restrict use a bit. Only system apps will have free reign over the SD card, but downloaded apps can only write/delete/modify in the directory associated with the app. If that app is removed, so are the files - so removal of a downloaded camera app would remove pictures you may have wanted. Also utilities like Astro would no longer have write access to all SD card directories. Sounds like you can still mount the card on a PC and put files wherever you want. It could be inconvenient depending on how you use your SD card, but not totally broken unless you are a conspiracy theorist. NSA says you are.
