RE’s hybrid Wi-Fi cellular calling system needs to change some things before actually updating their devices, which takes a long time for their changes to be implemented in their devices.

Moto E and G updates are supposed to be available to all users by the end of next week but the Moto X 1st gen version has been pushed back to February because some tests brought about issues in the new firmware.

Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S5 receives update to Android 4.4.4

Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S5 is finally receiving its update to Android 4.4.4. Samsung said all the way back two months ago that its Sprint version will be getting the update soon, but sadly that didn’t happen. Maybe there was a problem with a bug, or the update had issues that needed further work and testing. The truth will never be known.

 

What we do know is that Sprint S5’s are getting the OTA starting today and that Samsung is working on updating its devices to Android 5.0. T Mobile’s and AT&T’s S5 versions are waiting in limbo for their Lollipop release as well, and it is bound to come soon, because the OS has been around (albeit in pre-release form) since this summer.

 

Below you can see the actual changelog for the update:

  • Google security patches
  • International WiFi calling support
  • HD Voice icon
  • Android 4.4.4.

 

If you own a Sprint Galaxy S5, this update should be coming to your phone in the following days.

AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy Note 3 update to Android 4.4.4 – Lollipop expected next year

AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is getting an OTA to Android 4.4.4 which adds numerous new features. The update brings devices up from Android 4.4.2 and the handy 458MB adds some interesting new features such as Kid Mode, Knox 2.0, SideSync 3.0 and a virtual tour mode in the camera app. Of course, some AT&T bloatware is expected.

 

The Uber app will not be able to be uninstall, and some bug-fixes and exploit patches are included as well. You can expect Android 5.0 to come around knocking in 2015… hopefully.

Sprint’s Galaxy S5 gets update to Android 4.4.4

Samsung has been updating its devices to Android 4.4.4 in the past few months and it seems that now Sprint’s Galaxy S5 is the next to update. Sprint’s CDMA edition is getting its most recent stable build of Android as we speak, but be patient as usually US carriers take their time in actually updating their devices.

Samsung Galaxy S5 launched with Android KitKat and the Sprint version has been running on it since launch (sometime in April). According to release notes for the Sprint Samsung S5, the update includes behind the scene improvements and little security patches, as well as support for VoWiFi.

Usually, Samsung updates are rather big and, even if we don’t know the size of the update yet, it will probably be sizeable, especially considering the hop from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4. If you are not on an unlimited data plan, you may want to download this update via WiFi.

Rooted or modified phones may not be viable for flashing where root privileges may become void if updates are tried.

The update is a bug fixer in most cases so you won’t find that much exciting news in between the lines. Among the solved problems are some security vulnerabilities and some stability issues. The update brings some interesting genuine design changes as well, including a new layout for the phone dialer and the option of pausing during a video recording in the camera app.
