    It was available to me too. Have not pulled the trigger. It's the same software version that is on my G4 and there is no new info on the Verizon support page. Anyone try it yet?

    Here is the Verizon Wireless description of the update:

    I am also waiting for someone else to try it and report here before I do so.

    wow, this is the most useless update if those are the only things "fixed"

    "Samsung will power on after software update" ............is that even a feature?

    Looks like it may address the charging issue so many people have complained about since the 4.3 update...

    I never really saw the issue on mine.

    Can someone that's updated and has unlimited data and uses FoxFi confirm if it still works post update or if VZW broke it?

    I just installed it, was really small. Quick install, 5 to 7 minutes like it promised. Booted up with Wi-Fi connected, been up 10 minutes now. Baseband version shows up as I545VRUEMK2. Still Linux kernel version 3.4.0, but Nov 20 2013 compile date.

    I downloaded it and said install, but it failed on my completely stock S4 and left me at the bootloader screen.
    rebooted and am downloading again for a second try.

    Interestingly, it worked the second time.

    My wifi is definitely better. Previous update back in October "broke" or severely limited my ability to connect to wifi which had strong signals before. It seems to now be back to where it was prior to the October 4.3 update.

    I'm still seeing it drop the Wi-Fi. Sometimes it say's it's stuck on 'obtaining IP address'. Just now the Wi-Fi turned itself off. I'm getting ready to ditch wi-fi. This is crap.

    I have unlimited data and use foxfi for tethering. After update everything still works just fine. Just tried it, no problems.

    I can tell you a couple things it doesn't do and they are - fix the open folder issue or the unlock by clicking certain notifications issue.

    Well it killed the access to my 4G network chooser so I could choose 4G, 3G ect.

    I had the same issue. Very discouraging to see the Lloyd lying there dead on the screen. Looks like no problem downloading and installing the second time for me also.

    Anyone using the Battery Monitor Widget do this update? I just put this on my phone so I could force the phone into CDMA auto (PRL) because in my shop the 4G signal is sporadic and forcing it to 3G solves most of my issues. OverLordOfYou mentioned it killed his network chooser. I won't do this if I'm going to lose my widget function.

    Well now I'm pissed. I did the update and lost the ability to force it into 3G. The testing function in the battery monitor widget now longer functions at all.
