    Okay ....... please explain to me what good came of this update. Can' t root or removes root for those that are/or would want to, need to do a factory reset to get the Wi-fi toggle, and now this hiccup with Foxfi (which I love BTW). Glad I haven't updated yet. It's crazy, but this is the first time I haven't searched for and updated immediately upon hearing it was available. ---Thanks Verizon (that thanks folks, was some serious sarcasm):happy3:

    I know I'll probably have to update (later rather than sooner), and hopefully smarter heads will prevail, the craziness will subside, and we'll be able to use our devices without having to jump through hoops to do so. Shame of the matter is, the S4 is a damn nice microcomputer that also happens to be a phone.

    In reply to what good does this update come up with. So far, I discovered two things. One is I was able to change my profile name (edit name) in Google+ (no more showing real name when posting). Two, I was able to move my apps to SD card just by going to my application instead of my files. The whole process is easier now. I am sure there are still some goods but I havent got the time to discover them all. Most important foxfi still works.

    Forgot about moving apps to the SD card. Guess I never had enough apps to consume the usable internal space. Have a 32 gig installed, maybe I'll move over a couple of things.

    I have unlimited and I use foxfi.
    I haven't upgraded yet in fear of foxfi not working afterwards, and just popped on here to see if anyone was talking about it.

    So just want to make sure before I upgrade. Foxfi will still work as normal I just have to close the pop-up by hitting home?? Will it pop up everytime you open it or just the first?

    Foxi works fine with the update. The pop up is as mentioned by someone on the forum as a scare tactic. You can just hit the home button on the phone afterwords.

    Just installed the update. First thing up ...... Foxfi wants to update, and mentions the dreaded lockscreen to not have any issues, or just ignore the question when it comes up as others have mentioned and either cancel our hit home button. I'll probably check this out tomorrow.

    I installed the update for FoxFi (version 2.13.1) and then enabled it to install a certificate on my phone vis VPN. During that process, I was not asked to turn on a lock screen, perhaps because I was already using one.

    As @dezymond also found, FoxFi works fine now... no Verizon message box.

    I haven't installed the new Foxfi version yet. If I'm reading correctly, since I don't use nor do I want to use a lockscreen, you have to go into the Foxfi settings and activate "no lockscreen" under the hash code. This may continue to bring up the Verizon authorization, but you can ignore it as we do right now.

    Let me know if I'm missing something.
