Haven’t Received Your Galaxy S 4 GPe KitKat OTA Yet? Download it Here

Not too long ago, we announced that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Play edition was finally starting to receive its official Android 4.4 KitKat OTA. This news originally came directly from the Android Google+ page. And while the update arrived sooner than the OEM-skinned variants of these same devices, the timing wasn’t exactly stellar. After all, the Moto X managed to score KitKat before either of the Google Play edition devices.

Despite the less than ideal update timing, the two Google Play edition devices still managed to receive the update far before most consumer devices get their own official KitKat builds. However, not everyone with an SGS4 GPe has already gotten their OTA.

Thankfully, XDA Recognized Contributor oldblue910 was kind enough to both share the OTA link and mirror it on his own hosting. This is, of course, an incremental update to KRT16S from the previous official JWR66Y Jelly Bean build. Naturally, you must be stock, unrooted, and running the stock recovery to (directly) use this update. That said, it may also be of use for those looking to port the update over to the standard Galaxy S 4.

If you haven’t already received your OTA, you should make your way over to oldblue910’s Firmware Archive thread to get in on the action.
