    Default Re: 4.3 is here!!!!

    I just updated and everything appeared to go ok. I am not rooted, but do use Nova Launcher Pro.

    A few observations:

    1) My settings icon on the main screen is not a gear anymore, but an Android icon. When I click on it I get a App Not Installed error. Settings from the pulldown still works, though.
    2) Screen updating seems to be faster, especially when pulling down from the top. I don't know if it is a placebo effect or what, but it really seems much faster.
    3) Still no lock screen widgets availability if you have a pin set up.
    4) When you load the camera for the first time it says UPDATING CAMERA FIRMWARE. PLEASE WAIT ... Does anyone know what specific changes were made to the camera?
    5) Facebook works for me without an issue. Loading, opening notifications and going to them. This might have to do with the fact my facebook app upgraded itself yesterday before I installed the update.
    6) The update resets your shortcut icons on the pulldown menu. (Sorry about not knowing the technical terms). I had them in a particular order, but they have been reset to Wi-Fi, GPS, Sound, Screen Rotation, Bluetooth.

    Thanks!

    I saw that too. Was hoping it would add the photosphere camera, but no joy. But then too, since it's firmware, it's probably performance enhancements.

    I'm just glad they got rid of the annoying Location On icon in the status bar.

    Does Tethering still work if you have unlimited data? I can just hit "home" and it will still tether after the nag screen pops up - just making sure this is still the case before I upgrade to 4.3.

    Many thanks!

    My observations so far...

    Wifi notification is gone
    The new toggles
    I also got the camer a firmware notification
    The navigation icon is gone. Looks like they merged it with Maps.

    So far so good.

    Tethering applications such as Portable WiFi Tether DO NOT work anymore. Verizon turns the tether OFF while checking your subscription status now as apposed to just simple checking your status. Hitting the "home" button to leave the subscription screen is too late now. I have seen that FoxFi does work to turn it on... either wait for a fix from a free tether app or pay the $8 now??? Decisions.

    Most rooted folks will want to wait for confirmation of things working before installing the update.

    I'll be keeping an eye on the "general" and " Android development" sub-forums over here for more info...it may take a little while for reports to start coming back.

    Not seeing the apps (if any) to support Samsung Gear. Am I missing something?

    Anyone seeing issues getting the Samsung app store app loaded? I can download it hit install but nothing. Also curious if anyone with the Gear has tested it out yet? Any issues getting the gear manager?

    Curious. I've owned the galaxy s4 since it came out on Verizon and updated to the latest software today. A silver shield appeared in the notification area and when you touch it a warning appears:

    Security Notice

    An attempt to access a secure area on your phone without authorization has been blocked.

    Make sure your phone is protected by updating the security policy to the latest version from Samsung.

    For more information, visit samsung.com/us/secureandroid


    I have never seen this before, so I am unsure if it is related to the update or not.

    Same here, I don't see the Samsung Gear app in the app drawer. Just KNOX after the update.

    Can turn of the knox notification service to stop seeing these messages. I've only gotten those since the update and only when turning on WiFi.

    So I take it when you paired it via NFC and the charging cradle it downloaded Gear automatically? I know the Gear service is listed in the Apps Manager but didn't see the actual app. I don't have my Gear yet but I was going to load Gear Manager from the Samsung App store but still can't get that apk to install.

    How is the stock keyboard? Did it receive auto–correct or any special features?

    Interesting. How can I tell what is attempting to access a secure area without authorization? Is there a log?

    Should I update the policy?
