Nothing here as of 10:07est. If you have a best buy in your area, call to see if they have a Samsung station there. They can flash new firmware from their PC.

Just checked on all 3 of my accounts S4's and all 3 tell me I am current on 4.3, please check in 24 hours. I suspect that much like the 4.3 update, they are loading IMEI numbers into the update system in waves. I know with 4.3, two of the three updated without a hitch, the 3rd one I had to contact support and get a ticket open to have them load the IMEI into the update server. As soon as that happened it too updated to 4.3 without issue. We all want it, just have a little patience. The fact that it came so soon after 4.3 and BEFORE the S5 is available is a miracle of earth-shattering proportions. I actually would like to hold off a few days and see what bugs have been introduced, what performance is like, battery life etc. Look at 4.3, it was released and pulled then released again to correct issues, and the S3 still has problems. Just hang tight, it is officially available.

If you don't feel like waiting set your date ahead 24hrs and try again. You can keep repeating this until your phone finally see's the update.

Re: Galaxy S4 Kit-Kat Update

Yeah, I know all about the spoof the clock trick. I used it on my daughters S3 to get the 4.3 update. The issue I have run into in the past is a lot of times you can end up going out a week and it still won't trigger the update. Pre 4.0 you used to be able to just go into Applications and clear the cache on the update app, and not mess with bumping the time up. I am fine with waiting, that way if there are major issues I can defer the update. Thanks for the pro-tip though, lots of folks still don't know about it honestly.

Re: Galaxy S4 Kit-Kat Update

Started the hunt from 12:00AM . Forced an update check again a couple minutes ago and Alas!!! Now downloading it and super thrilled about the full album artwork feature(hope Spotify takes advantage of this) and a bunch of Kitkat goodies soon to be discovered!!! A little concerned about the SD Card saga going on around the internet but as a fan of technology I know I will always find a work around.

Will Someone Please answer questions below??

Does it come up up your screen that you have an update as I have seen some??  Or do you have to go into the settings and check manually??  Also does anyone know if I can get on my rooted S4 with I337UCEMK2??

Re: Galaxy S4 Kit-Kat Update

I got the update, and everything is running fine.  One thing I find annoying, is the notification bar used to have data toggle, but then when the 4.3 update came out, it was taken away.  I read that ATT was putting it back after 4.4.2 was installed, it still wasn't there.  Can anyone confirm this?
