T-Mobile Galaxy S4′s Android 4.4.2 KitKat treat arrives today

T-Mobile only recently started pushing out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to the Galaxy Note 3, and now the uncarrier is extending availability of the latest version of Android to the Galaxy S4. The update is beginning to roll out over the air and through Samsung Kies with build number M919UVUFNB4, with the former sized at 388 MB. Your phone will have to be on build M919UVUEMK2, the last Android 4.3 build, to be able to get the update; as always, the rollout will be staggered, so you might have to wait for a few days before the update shows up on your Galaxy S4.

The KitKat update brings improved stability, and major features include white status bar icons, improved performance, reduced memory usage, improvements to Samsung’s onscreen keyboard in landscape mode, inbuilt wireless printing support, ability to select the default launcher and messaging app from the settings menu, a  camera shortcut and full-screen album art on the lock screen, and new emojis. You might also find that most apps are lesser access to the external storage than before, which is by Google’s design and hence something you’ll have to live with.

Never ever ever ever upgrade any Galaxy device to 4.4.
Samsung has ipmplemented the new kitkat rules enforced by android regarding the external SD storage.
meaning no third party app has write access to external storage, making navigation apps, file manager apps and any other app that has the abbility to write to external storage instantly redundant.
Since most devices only have 16GB’s of internal storage, the devices will be full after just 2 or 3 bigger apps (games, navigation software etc.)

UK I9505 now working, unbranded and unlocked. OTA and Kies. Although Kies throws an error at me which i think is an issue on my machine not the firmware so downloading through OTA. I will then factory reset once installed and see how it goes.
