Any news when will Android 4.4 (aka Kit-Kat) be available for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 devices?

regarding the "R" word.... I keep checking XDA for an AT&T R for my sch-1467. Sadly, without Odin and a PC it isn't yet possible.
death to Bloatware!
🐾 I don’t work for AT&T or any carrier. Never have, never will. My replies are based on experience and reading content available on the website. If you posted personal information, please edit and remove.
4.4.2 for the S4 was released by AT&T for OTA updates on 2/26/2014, verified by AT&T support.
Based on Samsungs press release about 4.4.2 sometime mid-feburary, and other Note 3's (elsewhere in the world, and other carriers) getting the update already, I bet AT&T is working on releasing 4.4.2 for Note 3 in the US soon.
If not, I will personally be jumping ship for a competitor who has released it (while guaranteeing I will fix the stupid GPS problem with Note3 at the same time).
So, it is in their best interest to release it sooner rather than later.
Just so you know, I can confirm from very personal, side-by-side experience in my car that Verizon DOES NOT drop the GPS signal. I moved to ATT last month and had my 6 month old Note 3 from VZN that I kept while I awaited the $160 for 4 lines to make sure it went through and I ran Waze and Maps on both devices at the same time and every couple of mins (or with a new message or charger plug-in) the ATT phone would drop GPS (rectified each time by turning the GPS off and back on).
great info beardgod. I had AT&T support today try to tell me that this is not an AT&T issue. I think your post proves otherwise.
I will also note, I have a verizon S4 (not a note 3 but quite close) provided by my job, and it does not have ANY of the GPS issues I have with my AT&T note 3. I also still have my previous phone -- AT&T Note 2. I switch my sim card into that phone and it works fine also. It's only the Note 3 that has this issue.
I was able to receive a $25 credit from AT&T today after persistant complaining. Now i will sit tight for another 3 weeks, hopefully the update will come by then. If it doesnt, or it does not fix the issue, I will get loud again. (You will see me post here...)
Until then, I will just use my Verizon S4 to navigate flawlessly and without any safety issues.
I am wondering why AT&T is taking so long to release Kit-Kat update to Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Are you not ashamed for this being delayed? Except AT & T all the US carriers released it... Is there any specific geniune reason for this delay?
any word on the galaxy s 3 not the note for 4.4?
I had an online chat rep for AT&T tell me outright that the reason they have not yet released KitKat for note3 is because they are trying to include a GPS fix. I posted his coment and name verbaitum to the GPS problem thread.
I dont know how accurate his understanding is but that sounds believable to me..
Has Keys been updated? Last time I checked (Dec.?) it hadn't been. And was therefore a waste of time.

Try doing it through Keys. You should be able to get it from there since Samsung finally posted the update to there site.
That's Samsung's "Kies". Sorry for the confusion.
Is the kitkat available in Kies already?
Absolutely, as long as you have a T-Mobile or Sprint Note 3...
I'm hopeful that the KitKat update has the GPS fix as well. My wife and I both have Note 3's (aka $1,400 of electronics in our hands) that we hope when driving will always have at least one of the two with active GPS.
If I go with a Note 4, it won't be the AT&T version...no matter how different the CPU is. Locked bootloaders should be optional when you flat out purchase the phone. If I buy it, I own it and want to tweak it to my liking without voiding a warranty.
So Sprint, T-Mobile, and many international carriers are enjoying the 4.4.2 on the Note 3. When will it come to us AT&T users in the Good 'Ol U.S.A.?
How can we improve?
