    Default Update question

    I haven't yet manually updated to 4.3 , seems like a hassle to have to factory reset (as advised others after a major update) and lose everything so I've been waiting for it to be pushed. (Good thing I'm not holding me breath uh?)
    Here's my question, after hearing all the talk about galaxy s3 getting 4.4 (kit Kat) I'm wondering if I can skip 4.3 & just wait to do 4.4? Will it mess anything up? Are there components of 4.3 that have to be installed first or can you skip right to 4.4 once released?
    Just trying to only have to factory reset one time. Laziness, I know! LOL

    Sure, you can wait. It will be a "Delta" update when it comes and will just update what it needs to whether your on 4.3 or something older.
    N5 Black 32GB 4.4.2(I love this thing!!), N4 (4.4.2), iphone 5, etc., N7(4.4.2) AT&T(2 Unlimited Plan's) The Nexus 5 is so fast...I just finished the internet...The ending wasn't great...

    Assuming your still stock on 4.1.2 and hoping to avoid the Knox nonsense, you'll have to wait until someone releases a non-knox stock release for 4.4...similar to what they did on XDA. No doubt, the standard stock 4.4 will likely have it as well.

    Yup, still at version 4.1.2 I'm running it old school, LOL (Sprint forgot about me apparently)
