    The reason I'm holding off on downloading from that link is because the sch-l545 is verizon's model # and sprint galaxy s4 is sph-L720. Don't want to risk messing up my phone cause its a pain to have to fix

    The leaked apk for the Kit Kat hangouts crashes, which is unfortunate because I really liked it. Other than that I've noticed that folders open much faster but they stay open after you launch an app so you have to close it. Not much else tho.

    And that sucks hopefully tires don't take too long

    Negative. That zip file is for Sprint and not verizon. It was pulled directly off google servers. if you read into the file software version it is L720vpuemja It also has L720 in the build version. I made sure of this as I read the file first. It is the same update as the Sprint OTA. If you don't want to use it then don't. The I545 is a miss print on the web sight. The file is all that matters. You should read into something before making comments....just saying

    Thank you STARGATE . You can also verify by going into settings> more>about device, and there it will show L720 in the software, baseband and build number..

    I don't think so. I think you can plug it in once the update starts tho. To be safe I charged to 100 then applied the update.

    I found another feature that's more of a pet peeve for me. When I get a notification I like to swipe down the notification shade and click it. Now it still opens but I have to swipe the lock screen to see it. Annoying since I don't have a Pw on my phone.

    I've found a problem that someone else already reported before.

    Every time my phone is in a WiFi area I actually have to turn the WiFi off and on for it to connect.

    I hate that! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก

    That's weird, saw one more person on Sprint forums saying same thing. Do you by any chance do a factory reset after an OS update? Just for grins, give it a try?

    I know many people recommend that. But I've never done it since I don't want to back up everything, I'm lazy that way. And also because I've never needed to do it in the first place.

    I'll just deal with it, it doesn't hurt, just nags me a bit.
    If I find more problems that bother me more, then I'll most likely do a factory reset.
    For now, I won't.
