    Looks like or kitkat build will be making its way out soon. They posted the kernel source last night which has meant ota pushing very soon after in previous releases. Keep an eye out!

    HTC One had it already and we still have to wait although we are using Google Edition. Strange

    When you say "already had it" I hope you mean as of last night, as it didn't start pushing OTA until then. I suspect ours is coming today or tomorrow so there's not a lot of time difference between them.

    I've already downloaded it and am copying it to my phone. Later this morning I'll run my script against it and create a full odin image for it.

    Grate for your kikat. I still stand at 4.3. So sad. Does anything relate to my location for update? I'm living in Vietnam.

    Don't know, but, you can just download it and sideload it.

    Nope. You can either sideload it or you can throw it on your external sdcard and install it from there.

    I more than installed it. LOL. I created a full ODIN image for it.

    [ODIN][TAR] 4.4 I9505GUEUBMKG Full Rooted Restore - xda-developers

    Nothing to be afraid of. I installed it from my external sdcard.

    Thank you for everything but I think I will wait for an official update from Google server side. I'm not the one who know a lot of things about smartphone. I'm a ordinary user. I unzipped the file and saw a lot of folder in it. I don't know what to do. Lol. But once again, thank you very much.

    You don't unzip it. You do what I said...

    o) Put it on your extSDCARD
    o) Boot to recovery: How to enter Samsung Galaxy S4 Recovery Mode
    o) Volume down to Install zip from sdcard, power to select
    o) Volume down to the zip file that you copied to the sdcard, hit power again to select
    o) Grab beer and wait

    That's literally it. And the link to the OTA update I posted above is from the google servers.

    Samurai, can you post the md5? I downloaded it, but it didn't install. I suspect my crappy work Wi-Fi... thanks, brother

    Don't forget it's a gzip file which means that ODIN has to extract the md5.tar file within it. But the MD5 for the gz file is 1b6001a1fd915701893bba5bfde0f191

    didn't work I got in red letters "signature verification failed" I used the direct link to the OTA you posted. Also the file had to be renamed "update.zip" in order to be recognized as an update to be used in stock recovery.

    EDIT NEVERMIND.....I figured it out

    No it doesn't. I installed it from the link I gave you in recovery this morning and I sure didn't change the name. And if you DO change the name, it WILL fail as you learned.

    I figured it out. It's updating as I type. My mistake was downloading it from my computer and transferring it to my external SD card. I downloaded the update directly from my phone and flashed it via stock recovery. Thanks for the help!!!!

    Does this manual update disable us from automatic update in setting?
