Android 4.4.2 has been steadily making its way to all of the different regional and carrier-branded variants of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 over the past month and a half. And earlier today, the Rogers variant of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 started receiving its own official update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat in the form of a staged OTA rollout.
This update, which has already made its way to various other carriers around the world was a long time coming for the Canadian device. But despite all the wait, only Rogers devices in Canada appear to be receiving OTA at this time. The update, which comes in at build VLUFNC1, umps up the Android version to 4.4.2, and brings with it all of the niceties we’ve seen in other KitKat updates for Samsung’s current generation flagship.
Luckily for Galaxy S 4 owners on other Canadian carriers, as well as those on Rogers who have not yet received the update, XDA Senior Member 0mega1 has mirrored the previously leaked (and now official) firmware for all to enjoy. The update has been confirmed working on Bell and Telus devices in addition to Rogers, but it is unknown as to whether the update will also work on I337M devices outside of Canada such as the AT&T variant of the device.
If you own a Canadian Galaxy S 4 and want to get in on the update, head over to the original thread, bust out a copy of Odin, and get flashing.
