  • Cricket Wireless Official KitKat 4.4 Release Notes for Samsung Galaxy S4



    You'll probably notice more updates with KitKat than the one listed on these notes.

    For instance, you should have the ability to snooze and stop alarms with voice commands. Voice commands can probably also be used in other situations like upon incoming calls.

    List what you've found here...

      Yeah the over the air update should start to roll out sometime today. Like @warboy said, please post the update.zip if possible.

      Some people will put it to good use. If you need a place to host, just let me know or someone here can probably hook you up.

      I think I received some insider information on that one lol. I didn't even notice the date on the PDF. Been so damn busy.

      I've actually never pulled it, but according to a post I just read, it will be located in /cache after you download it.

      IMPORTANT: Once you update, it disappears. This means you would have to get the file and then interrupt the process to save it.

      I'm sure others can add more helpful information. Someone also mentioned you could use logcat and find the download URL if you looked hard enough.

      I don't remember the 4.3 update because I never had a Cricket S4 :-(. My HTC One Max received an update the other day around noon CST. Seems like a good time to start an OTA update right? Support gets some time to get in, drink some coffee and prepare for a possible nightmare lol.

      The update will start rolling out to Cricket GS4 phones on April 15th. So be on the lookout over the next two weeks for a notification message prompting you to download a new software update. We recommend backing up your contacts prior to starting the update.

      From Cricket.... Over the next two weeks!

      WHAT JUST HAPPENED??

      I have a stock unmodified 4.3 ROM. Never been rooted. Starting last night after midnight, I have hit the 'check for updates' with the same 'you already have available updates installed' or something like that. Now just now, I checked again, but this time it says You have a modified ROM and are not available for updates. I checked my phone status information, and now all of a sudden it reads Device Status - Custom. What the ***? I've never made any attempts to root or modify my phone, and nothing between last night and this morning.

      From my experiences, Some SD cards trigger custom status. Don't ask me why.
