    Just saw they are rolling out the 4.4 update for the S4 in Korea. Anyone hear if they are doing it in the USA yet?

    Not yet. My bet is later this month or early next. Hopefully, it will be before the s5 announcement in Spain.

    Looks like a pretty minor update. When is the next big thing? :)

    Yes it was expected for S4 but still not received its update by Samsung. if s4 users no longer want to wait for 4.4.2 or are on a previous test build of Android KitKat, now have the option to download the latest test firmware, I9505XXUFNAD.
    How to update

    Release date depends on carrier since they have to bless it (with bloatware). Sprunt already rolled it last week.

    The update is loading as I write this.

    U. S. Cellular Galaxy S4 SCH-R970

    Later:
    The upgrade has loaded. Now some disappointing observations.

    The GPS icon was flashing a lot. Also having trouble swiping down from the top to access the Notification Panel. During the time the GPS was flashing, the S4 was heating up quite a lot and I could almost watch the battery drain. After I turned Mobile Data on then off, things went back to normal.

    The battery indicator shows white instead of green for the charge amount.

    I think the S4 needsd to just get used to the upgrade.

    However, one more bar for phone reception.

    Did you do a one minute battery pull after the update? All bets are off regarding how it may act until you do.

    Not until after the isssue corrected itself when I did the on/off thing with Mobile data. I do switch battieries once a day, as a rule. So, that should put me in a safe place. Thanks for the tip.

    does it matter? really no changes from 4.3 to this. Verizon is just going to add more crap to your phone along with these minimal changes.

    It's still nice to get an update for a phone, wether it's a big update or not. At least it's nice to know that my phone gets attention from Samsung and isn't out dated yet lol

    It's like Christmas every time I get an OS update or app update! Never know what you'll get.

    4.4.2 is still a bit unstable with the GPS. A couple of times after updating an app, it started searching for no apparent reason. If I turn GPS off then back on, it clears up.

    I'm on Verizon. My phone is still at 4.22? Why am I not receiving updates?

    You should have gotten 4.3 a while back. Should have at least seen the download, and an upgrade attempt. It might refuse to install if you've rooted or had an install issue but you would at least have seen it try. What happens if you go into settings/more/about phone? Does it show 4.22 or 4.3? If 4.22, then try software update and see what history it shows. Can also check for new updates and see if that triggers anything.
