    Got this update today. Anyone know what it does? I haven't found any information on what it does yet.

    Thanks

    Great, while other carriers and other phones are getting 4.4.4 and even 5.0, VZW has sent out two trivial patches to 4.4.2 for the S4. This release seems to fix two things I haven't seen anyone complaining about.

    I've had the restart issue when I first got the NG6 download. A factory reset fixed it.

    Well, I'm glad they issued this since several people (myself included) did have problems with the reboots after the NG6 update. Perhaps 4.4.4 and Lollipop are around the bend.

    At any rate, has anyone had any issues with NK1? I don't want to leap into another upgrade blindly.

    Thank you.

    I wonder if they won't jump over 4.4.4 and go right to lollipop for you folks. It's not as though it's going to be a big difference in the time frame that the two are released if and when they do.

    Given the very smooth build of 5.0 that's been seen running on the S4, I wouldn't be surprised by that either.

    Careful. We are trying to apply logic to this.

    I'm so pissed I actually made an account just to post on this thread. So for a while my S4 had been restarting on its own and I had no idea what the issue was. Finally, I realize it's the NG6 update so I reset back to NC5. No problems whatsoever. Today I get a noti saying a new update is downloading so I go to see if they came out with something to fix NG6. I find out NK1 is out and I'm stoked so I install the update figuring it's NK1. NOPE! It's NG6! Verizon straight up tricked me into installing their crappy broken update and now I have to find out if I can manually install NK1.

    You have to download all the updates in order. You should be able to install NK1 by going into the updater.

    That's what I ended up doing. It was weird because the software update menu on my phone said nothing was available.
