    Some folks over on the Verizon sub-forum have seen the update come through on Kies as well...
    I have to take a look. Thanks

    AT&T has a software update available as well. Unfortunately, my charge is too low to install any updates so I won't be able to tell you the firmware number. But just confirmed that there is a software update with AT&T.

    Just moved over 2Gbs of data to my 32Gb sd card. More space for games wooh! (This is a screen shot of the internal space, as you can see Mc4(1.9ishGb game) takes less than 50Mb on my storage as does Nfs which usually takes - 1.5Gbs on storage only takes up 3Mbs.S4 Update Questions-1373393746319.jpg Already love this update. :thumbup:

    Has anybody else successfully downloaded and installed the update from AT&T? Since I'll have to wait until tonight when I can plug my phone, I'm curious to find out what this update brings. Also, looks like some AT&T users received the update today but was not able to successfully complete the downloading process, was cancelled so they'll have to wait for 24 hours to retry. Also, is this the same update as if we're connected via Kies?

    I tried, but it failed and now says I have to wait 24 hours to check again for update.

    Currently waiting for Telus to give the go ahead for the update, I do have a carrier phone, but this one -- because I won it from MobileSyrup.com -- came directly from Samsung Mobile, but like I said, still have to wait for Telus!

    Can somebody do a pros/cons of doing a clean install -> update vs. just installing the update? If it's highly recommended I wipe my phone first, I'll do it, but honestly if there isn't any big downsides I'd rather just straight up update. Thanks.

    I just straight up updated, i dont no harm is done by doing so. Some people say its good to do it after a major update, but to me that means like a jump in software version. Like 4.0.4 to 4.2.2.

    I have never wiped my phone data just to install an update. It wouldn't make much of a difference too.

    Updating your phone's ROM is no different from flashing a custom one. You should wipe cache at least before accepting the update. Not doing so is like a dirty flash, in fact, it already is a dirty flash, because the OTA is preserving your data. Wiping cache helps keep data conflicts to a minimum.

    I would always wipe data when flashing a custom rom but not with official updates unless it is from ICS to JB. Of course, to prevent corruption of data, you may want to wipe cache and data.
