    Also, my average free RAM has increased quite about. I used to average 1.21/1.78 GB throughout the day with my usual apps open or saved in cache...now it's down to about 1.01/1.78 GB.
    True but I wanna keep it under a gig I might have to root and delete bloatware.

    This update got rid of my red hue on black backgrounds.

    However, it added the purple blur issue

    It also made it a lot smoother. I don't have to mess with my developer animation settings anymore
    Yes me too.

    RAM is always refreshing whether you use it or not. The cpu is what you should worry about.

    Its random and you can download the update and flash it yourself or force it to go through by doing the google framework trick.

    I posted a while back in this thread how you can manually flash it by grabbing the update file from over at XDA.

    I currently have my phone rooted. Can I perform the update and keep my root or will I lose my root or even worse will it brick my phone?

    Can anyone give me the steps in layman's terms how to force the OTA to my phone. I don't want to say I'm dumb but I think i must have missed something when I looked on XDA forum link earlier. I could not find a way to clear the data and didn't see a link for google framework.....

    Just grab the update file posted here: OTA - Official MDL update zip - xda-developers

    And then follow the steps I mentioned earlier. Will work every time and no having to clear framework and such.

    I followed the steps posted previously and the update finally pushed. Much better after the update. Hope more updates come down the pipe soon.

    You will loose root if done via "mottochopper" and will not be able to re-root via that method. (though the SU app stays on the phone, it doesn't grant access)

    I don't know about other methods.

    So once again I will say this, as I do with every single ota your location had nothing to do with the update. It is random and if you want you can force it yourself or download and install yourself. @Gtronic #herewestay

    Got it here in NC. Was ready when I woke up, so they must have pushed it overnight. So far I don't notice any difference.

    I got it in Wisconsin and I guess I don't see a real difference except maybe the battery is draining faster and that is certainly not an improvement. I was also using it a lot today but over all I don't see any big differences at all.

    Wondering if others are seeing a big change in performance or battery life?

    There is a multiple big changes in this update. The black levels are fixed, the stuttering and lag is fixed for the most part. Kernel and bootloader changes etc.

    Does anyone know what CSB and RP signify in the OTA filename? Specifically I'm curious if CSB or RP are device specific abbreviations or if other OTA files for other GS4 devices would have that as well.
