Hi I guess ppl here talking about S4 latest firmware update 4.4.3 which has been rolled out since July 22.

I believe Darkgamer and Tania from India Hindi belt means OS upgrade hub from Noida okla. plz wait for 3-4 more week


looks like Samsung OS upgrade release depends on the language belt. Since from S2 samsung upgrade availability depends on Language belt. updates differ based on regions. Regarding Ind samsung generally follows two belt/region. North and South. North belt aka Hindi belt OS upgrade is individial functioning based on Samsung Okla Noida and South aka Tamil belt will follow it up with thw SE asia OS update since Tamil is the one of lingo deconym in Malaysia, Sin and Burma too. TN will get the upgrade with respect to region. If you guys from TN just go and check it now u will get the update or if yoy guys from Northern parts pls wait for 3-4 weeks.

One of my friend from Tamilnad too informed me about this update. If you have any friends from Tamilnad just check out with them. but north belt upgrade lag by 3-4 weeks from SE asia update. just wait

Friend how to change the background them of Kids mode?..

How to decrease the background running capacity of this Knox 2.0.

Can someone (Darkgamer?) please explain what AnTutu score is or represents and why it can vary on the same device. My score for my s19505 varies from a high of 30871 to a low of 29658. I don't understand.

Good job samsung for the brand new update.

with total changeover in touch wiz UI. has anyone noticed knox 2.0 after the update?

Kid mode is just an awesome addon. setup your password and give the mobile to the kid and them draw play and surf under your monitoring.

Kudos Samsung.

Regards

> In reply to arun @ 2014-07-23 15:12 from ITkr - click to readI also asked the same question but frankly speaking there' s no such need for an update as the S4 runs butter smooth on 4.4.2 and sometimes the updates can turn out to be nightmares also nothing much is gonna change in 4.4.4 so better wait for some major update which has something new to offer as for now just relish your S4.

You can install custom rom.

You can overclock or underclock processor for better performance or battery life respectively.

You can install root specific apps.

You can have paid apps for free.

You can get in-app purchases for free.

And many other advantages.

Disadvantages are:

It'll void your warranty

It may brick your phone making it unusable.

It's too complicated for a common person.


If your phone is new, I suggest wait till your warranty is over and then consider rooting.

Have a nice day
