The kernel source dropped yesterday, which seemed to point to an impending release, and we didn't have to wait long. Android 4.4 is on its way to all Galaxy S4 users on Sprint, but you'll have to wait your turn.


Here's what you can expect in the coming OTA for build L720VPUFNAE:

  • Android 4.4 (Kit Kat): The Samsung Galaxy S 4 device will be updated to support the Android 4.4 (Kit Kat) software.
  • Prevention Information alert: Customers should no longer receive "Prevention Information - An application has been forced to stop for an unauthorized attempt to access system in your device. It may be safe to delete an application obtained from an unauthorized route. Check now?" alert messages on the device.
  • Zact Mobile: Device now includes the Zact Mobile compatibility.

You can mash the update button if you want, but it sounds like that won't do any good until your device is added to the update pool. It might take a few days, but calm yourself – KitKat isn't that far off.

[Sprint – Thanks, anon]
