Yesterday, we heard a rumor that Sprint will start the roll out of the Android 4.4 KitKat update for it’s variant, thanks to the folks at Android Central who managed to get hold of the leaked internal document.
It seems the date was correct as the carrier has commenced the Android 4.4 KitKat roll out for its handset, updating it to version JDQ39.L720VPUFNAE.
Here’s the complete changelog that details all the enhancements introduced in the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 tied to Sprint.
- 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.
The update might take a few days to reach all devices, so you should patiently wait for the magical update notification to pop-up on your screen. If that’s not possible, head over to Settings > More > About Phone and manually check if the update is available.
I’m hoping the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Samsung S4 is not as bad as the Android 4.3 update that brought more problems then fixes. Let us know using the comments if you received the update.
