    Default Galaxy S4: Updated AT&T Kitkat... Worthless with glitches

    I updated my Galaxy S4 with no problems.

    These are the things that only changed.
    1. Notification Icons on top of screen are now white. Whoopy! smh
    2. I'm able to drap and drop for uninstalling apps. Big deal....
    3. They add Beats Musics app. If I wanted it I would add it myself.
    4. They added ISIS app. This app is non functional, limited and not widely used amongst retailers.
    5. On lock screen music art is displayed. ehhh.
    6. NOTHING ELSE HAS CHANGED. WTHell!!??

    Non of the other advertised KitKat features have been added, thus removed by AT&T.
    1. In coming caller ID on non-contact callers.
    2. Phone dialer doesn't have search capabilities
    3. Faster and improved UI
    4. etc etc

    Problems so far...
    1. Incoming calls lock up my phone and I'm unable to answer because screen goes black.

    Anyone else not happy? Or know how to uninstall 4.4 and go back to 4.3?

    You can't go back to 4.3. Once 4.4.2 is installed it locks the bootloader and changes a quote setting so that you can't go backwards... Another one of AT&T 's great innovations.

    Yup. Not impressed. Wish I could go back. Now I can't use my SD card either. I wanted the incoming caller ID on non contact callers. Really disappointed.

    I'm in the same boat. I have multiple apps disappear and now my email (default app) is not retrieving my yahoo emails. Rebooting didn't fix anything. I too went straight to the android site to see what cool new features I was going to get and not a single one is on my phone expect the ones you listed. Extremely disappointed and frustrated that the update was pointless.

    Forget going back to 4.2.2 or 4.3 what is so wrong is the fact that have such in consistency from release to release.

    No it is impossible the newer boot loader is even locked further and it is signed to the kernel if the 4.4.2 kernel isn't passed to the boot loader it will boot loop your knox counter will be 0x1 meaning warranty is PERNAMENTALLY VOID!!!! Meaning it's bricked and they will charge you $450.00 for a new mother board plus you won't have a phone for 5 weeks give or take

    Unless you can go to a best buy and get a samsung experience consultant to hopefully re flash everything or find a stock Oden. Tar and hope it works but to my knowledge that even trips the knox void flag
