Galaxy S4 remains a good and competent device, even if the media tries to tell you otherwise. Which is why it is still included in the smartphone group that still receives relevant updates.

This OTA brings the device to firmware version LRX22C.1337UCUGOC3 and it measures 947MB, meaning you would have to download it via Wi-Fi.

    Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition updates to Android Lollipop 5.0

    Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition is getting an update to Lollipop 5.0. The first GPE phone is finally getting its update –well ahead of other more recent flagships as is – and you can update it manually or wait for the rollout to reach you (if it hasn’t already).

     

    The build you are getting is 5.0 not 5.0.1, which means you may get some bugs with it too, at least until the next OTA hits. Even if the device is getting rather old – in relation to other devices – it may still get support from Google.

     

    The Lollipop update is 500 MB, so you’d better wait for some WiFi connection to download it, unless you want to wreak havoc to your data plan.

    AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom receives update to KitKat 4.4.2

    AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is finally getting an OTA update to KitKat. The world’s best (?) smartphone with a camera is getting an update to last year’s hit operating system from Android. Thus the non-flagship owners suffer in silence every year envious of those who paid enough to get their OTAs sooner than all.

    In case you have Samsung’s attempt at a phone/camera hybrid, you can finally bask in the fact that you will be enjoying the KitKat experience soon. This update is the first the device is getting ever since its release in 2013, and it is only to KitKat 4.4.2. This brings the device to software number C105A_KKUCUBNI1.

     

    On Samsung’s page there is no knowledge of possible updates to TouchWiz or the camera software, which means such modifications are minimal. In case you managed to root your phone despite AT&T’s efforts of stopping you, you should know that the update will most likely take away your super-user settings.

    Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S4 gets small OTA update fixing power crash issues

    Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S4 is getting a small OTA update in order to fix some power cycle issues, among other things. In case your S4 has been rebooting on its own, you should look for the update already, as Verizon already worked on fixing this issue. The device is not getting Lollipop, but it is fixing the unexpected crashing sessions you have been bugged about lately.

     

    The other change coming with the OTA is the VPN connectivity fix. It appears that Verizon has been working on its S4s for a while now, as more than one small OTAs have been rolling out already. Before flashing the KOT49H.I54VRUFNK1 software version you should remember that any modification to the system or its recovery will be leading to a flash error, and if you already have root on your device, you may lose it post-update.
