[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.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
