I was able to update my S4 to the MF3 version the day it was released OTA. But I've tried to update two other S4s since then and it always says it's up-to-date even though they still have the old MDL version. Any ideas?

Definitely not interested in root - as great as I've heard it to be. I just want the latest update. I tried calling AT&T, and they tried pushing the update from their end - but they couldn't push it through.

Ok finally able to activate the update. I changed the date to August 7th. Then turned the phone off. Took the battery out. Put it all back together restarted with the phone still set to August 7th then tried the update and it started downloading finally. Not sure which part actually got it going finally but the only new steps I had done is turning the phone off after changing the date and taking out the battery before trying the update again.

thank you so much Nwilb832! did your trick and it worked. Been looking on all the android forums to find a way to get this update, even contacted technical support (HA) thanks again!

Great glad other people are able to get their updates too now.
@iUmair I agree I think it has more to do with powering down and removing the battery. Aug 7 just happened to be the next date I could use to try the update. The date could be whatever each person can use next.

Thank you Nwilb! I didn't even have to take the battery out. I just rebooted it. I had to change the date because of all the previous attempts. I checked immediatly after rebooting it and it found the update.

The given solution doesnt work for me. I have tried moving dates one by one. I checked out till 30th August but no luck. And now even for the current date it shows me adding up hours till the 30th august for update to be availalble.
Though Kies, it shows me that i have an update available. But it downloads till about 11-12% every time and then just stops. Doesnot download after that. I have tried this many many times.
Is there a solution to this? anything via OTA or Kies.

Even more than 2 months of release, I am not able to get this update on my S4. I tried doing this through Kies and i am still on
Is there any work around possible?
