The Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy S4 has been making the rounds lately, already popping up for Verizon and Sprint. Now it's set to make another appearance, not on AT&T or T-Mobile, but on US Cellular. The carrier that wasn't large enough to appear on Samsung's leaked accelerated Android 4.3 update plan now has a changelog up detailing what users can expect from software version R970VXUAMJA.


This update adds Galaxy Gear support to the Galaxy S4, expanding the number of customers who might be interested in picking up Samsung's $299 smartwatch. It also brings in a slew of TouchWiz enhancements and makes improvements to a number of Samsung's pre-installed apps. For enterprise users or the more security conscious, KNOX supported is also included.

This update matches the timeframe provided by the leak we received a few days ago, which is all the more reason for AT&T and T-Mobile customers to trust that their updates should arrive before the end of this month.

    I got the update this morning and it asked me if i wanted to install it.
    i go ahead and click yes, the phone rebooted , but since it was rooted-
    it did not update.
    i unrooted my phone and did a factory reset
    but i am not getting the update anymore :/
    any ideas??
    THank you.!

      You may have to manually do the update via Kies in that case. I won't know until later once I flash back to stock ROM and kernel, root and Triangle Away then unroot again. Going to get the latest on my S4 before I give it to my dad so I can get the Note 3 with USCC...just wish they offered a white Note 3.

    Have you noticed that the enhancements are the krapware by carriers. Samsung is a total sellout. I rooted and went Play Edition. My next device will be a Nexus or iPhone again.

    As a U.S. Cellular S4 owner, I think I'll stick with CarbonROM. As much as WiFi Now updates entice me, I like my device to look good and have useful features.
