The Galaxy S4 on AT&T started getting its KitKat update today, but the Note 3 is still on the waiting list. Some users were excited to see an OTA notification pop up on Samsung's latest phablet only to have their hopes crushed by what turns out to be another build of Android 4.3.
This update isn't huge, but it does fix some Android bugs and includes a few updated apps. The changelog calls out three Android bug in particular that have been squashed in this update – 6923539, 9702645, and 12118307. Bug 9702645 is the SMS Class 0 DOS attack, but we're not sure what the first one is referencing in AOSP. The last one is a puzzling – we haven't spotted it referenced anywhere publicly. Users also get some mysterious "FOTA updates," which could indicate this build sets the stage for a KitKat OTA. Here's the full changelog.
- Google Android
- Update GMS apks and libraries (Newsstand 3.0.1 – 6.6MB, Search 188.8.131.529369 – 10.3MB , YouTube 5.1.10 – 6.5MB)
- Add Google Drive
- ANDROID Patches: - 6923539, 9702645,12118307
- FOTA Enhancements
- Samsung Account Update
The OTA comes with version number N900AUCUBNB4 and you ought to be able to pull it down manually by checking for updates if it hasn't already showed up on its own. You can almost taste that chocolaty KitKat goodness. Fingers crossed.
