    The 4.4.2 update through the plhone was a disaster on line. The GPS, when turned on, kept flashing, which ate up the battery and heated the S4. I took it to U. S. Cellular and they did a direct connect flash. Now I have to pend the week rebuilding - adding apps back, reentering information, setting up preferences - a load of stuff.

    I am not so sure the upgrade was ready. But, the phone works properly now.

    Got mine today (Los Angeles on ATT). Took an hour in the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf but, I guess it had to be done. The total download was just a hair over 417 mb. After it completed, I was missing a couple of icons and my favorite alarm program wouldn't work and I had to replace that. Other than that, there was nothing else noticeable.

    Our unlocked boot loader is tied to a custom kernel and if we lose it there's no replacing it.

    VZW was first out of the gate with 4.3. I wonder if they are taking their time with this one. 4.3 has been a bit buggy.

    Yeah, while anxious to get any new update for my S4 and Note 2014, you sure don't want an under-cooked release.

    Betting they will wait till after the S5 launches. Can't have the S4 sporting the same version of OS as the new flagship product
