    Talking When can we expect the 4.4 update ?

    When can we expect the 4.4 KitKat update for our S3's ? What is going to be new in 4.4 ? And once we get it how long would it take to get a root method for it ?

    It's not far out to be honest. I would expect the S4 to get it mid April and S3 early May

    My work on the CDMA Cricket S3 and S4 are now obsolete. Thanks for all the support when I was actively working on them!

    Is it FOR SURE that the Galaxy S3 is going to get the 4.4 update?

    I doubt they upgrade the S3 to 4.4 because it will be useless in less than a year. I will be very surprised if they do upgrade it.

    Do you think they'll give us a good deal if we hang on to these phones? Or should we ditch them?

    The value will continue to drop as we near ~ March 2015. The phone will also be another year older. If I was a normal consumer, I would probably sell it.

    A few years ago, Samsung held the Gingerbread updates for the Samsung Mesmerize. The internet (which is always right you know ) said that Us Cellular did not pay for the update, and Samsung did not provide it. It was available on XDA and I did the deed to upgrade after rooting. eventually Samsung released it. I doubt if Cricket will pay any more for upgrades than required for GSM phones.

    Yea, its a waste of manufactures time to help keep old phones updated/running for 20 years. They are in the biz of selling new phones with the latest wizbang gimmicks. Thats how they make money. Even ROM developers will abandon old phones as time goes by. My rooted stock S3 serves me well. Im just not sure what new phone gimmicks i need since 90% of its use is for talking, texting, facebook and instagram.

    I'd like a new phone, just to have the newest cool sure, but I can't justify it really. The S3 can handle anything I throw at it. I'm not a big gamer or anything. I just bought the galaxy gear watch, so I'd like to go ahead and keep my phone. I just don't want to get shafted when I'm forced to gsm.

    Looks like I was wrong... And also very surprised! They did release the kitkat upgrade yesterday. There's really not much difference between kitkat and jelly bean, except the white icons in the notification bar and a few settings tweaks. I'm still confused on the SD card changes that kitkat was bringing with it. I've read several articles on it and I'm still confused. I don't want to try Knox 2.0 because I tried 1.0 when it first came out and it messed my phone up so I had to do a complete restore. What's with the signing into the gallery stuff?

    Hopefully someone creates an Odin file for 4.4 for those of us who can't get the official update. That's my request/plea. Thanks
