T-Mobile Galaxy S 4 Receives 4.4.2, OTA Mirrored!
Just four days ago, the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 received an OTA update to Android 4.4.2. This naturally lead many to wonder when Samsung’s other flagship device on T-Mobile would see a similar update. That time is here, folks, as Android 4.4.2 has now started making its way out to consumer devices.
The update comes in the form of build number M919UVUFNB4, replacing the previous Android 4.3-based M919UVUEMK2 build. The update weighs in at a decently sized 388 MB, and it brings all of the same goodies we’ve seen on other SGS4 KitKat device updates such as an ever so slightly changed UI, wireless printing, KitKat-related performance tweaks, and more.
The update is currently making its way to consumer devices in the form of a staged rollout. Thus, not every device will receive the OTA immediately. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member ShinySide was kind enough to mirror the update for those who haven’t received the OTA.
Make your way over to the original thread to get in on the discussion, and those looking for the mirror should visit this post. Kernel developers will be a bit sad to learn that the GPL-mandated kernel source code for the T-Mobile SGS4 has not yet been updated to KitKat. That said, we can’t imagine that it will be too much longer, as Samsung is usually quick to release the required source bits.

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it. In fact, we made...
