[OTA Captured] Android 4.4.2 Now Rolling Out to the AT&T Galaxy S 4 Active

A little under two months ago, AT&T started rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat to the former flagship Galaxy S 4. Many  were then left wondering when their devices would receive their taste of Google’s latest tasty treat. Thankfully, the update has now begun rolling out, and KitKat is here in official capacity for the AT&T variant of the S4 Active i537.

Today’s update comes in the form of firmware build I537UCUCNC9. Aside from bumping up the Android version to the latest official 4.4.2 (no, Sprint—4.4.3 is not yet live), today’s update also brings all of the other goodies we’ve seen in other Samsung KitKat releases. This includes refined UI styling, full screen album art and media controls in the lock screen, a new location menu, wireless printing, and a new sound controls menu.

The update is currently making its way to consumer devices in the form of a staged OTA rollout. But of course, not all devices will be in the initial wave. Luckily, those wanting to get in on the update action a bit early can do so thanks to XDA Forum Member TreyLWalker, who mirrored the update for your sideloading pleasure.

You can learn more about the update on AT&T’s update support page. Share your experiences with the update in the comments below, and then head over to the 4.4 discussion thread to get in on the action. And if you want to update your device before you receive the OTA, head over to TreyLWalker’s mirror to get started sideloading.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
