AT&T's Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update coming soon

AT&T and Samsung are getting closer to launching a firmware update for the carrier’s version of the Galaxy S4 smartphone. This post at XDA Developers website has all the instructions and downloads needed to get your Galaxy S4 to the latest available version of Android.

But, and there’s a big “but” here. This isn’t the final build. Rather, software version I337UCUFMLD (with a build date of January 2nd) isn’t as new as the latest KitKat firmware that leaked for the international version of Samsung’s flagship. So some things may not work properly like watching videos which will reboot your phone like it’s nobody’s business.

Moreover, there are new bootloaders included with this software version that might make it impossible to go back to Android 4.3 later on. Plus, you might not be able to root it until someone comes up with a root hack.

Yeah, you shouldn’t cram this firmware to your shiny smartphone; you’re much better off waiting for the regular OTA update which will be properly tested by both Samsung and AT&T…

  • I use Kitkat on My galaxy S3 with cyangenmod anf it’s great. Really
    faster than the samsung’s rom. Just used the new cyangemod installer,
    really simple.

    Terrible title. This ‘article’ isn’t about the update coming soon. It is about the leaked firmware. Nice job getting me here once though.
