    @thecure13 This one appears to be OTA only. Did you try forcing the software update?

    Go to Settings...More...Date and Time. Turn off Automatic Date and Time. Then set it a day ahead manually. Next go into Software Update and Check for Updates again. Should start downloading.
    Omgg! You are the man! Thanks soooo much!

    Here we go again...one more try tonight (or should I say "Friday night Nov 15"). I leave for 10 day biz trip to Europe on Saturday and want this over and done BEFORE I fly. OK - just passed the 2%, maybe we'll make it this time. Maybe all the East Coasters are asleep.
    AT&T: 1998 called and it wants its slow DSL back!! Update: averaging about 70-75 KB/sec down. At this rate looking at 160-170 minutes total.

    I'm on charter 30mbps speed and I started the download 15 minutes ago and already 20%!! This is pretty decent compared to my previous experience with 4.2 update.

    Update has definitely added a boost in speed in all the right places ... Most importantly in the gallery app. I expected to see the 360 panoramic photo mode but don't see it... Damn

    Best thing to come with Android 4.3 for me was the Notification Listener Service!
    With it, Apps that listen for Notifications such as LightFlow, Floating Notifications, Dynamic Notifications, etc... no longer need to use the Accessibility Services "hack".

    Additionally, the Notifications are connected so dismissing it one way dismisses it globally!
    Previously, if you got a Google+ Notification that popped up in your Notification Shade swiping it away wouldn't dismiss it from Floating Notifications or LightFlow - you'd need to manually dismiss them from each. Now though, dismissing them by any means dismisses them from every App - super convenient!

    Other than that, 4.3 changes the way files are stored so manually moving pictures around with a File Explorer App from folder-to-folder doesn't take as long to be reflected in the Gallery.

    I downloaded the update 700mb while I slept. I assume its done because it doesnt show it downloading anymore but it still says I have 4.2 installed. I went back to about device, then software update and it says its up to date, check back in 19 hours.
    I already downloaded 4.3 but it's still showing 4.2. Any input would be great

    Just curious, do you have an external SD card you save pictures too? If so, you might want to try formating card, I found that once the card starts to get full, it slows down the opening of the camera.

    I was able to download the update but when I went to install it got about half way through, restarted my phone and then I got a message about the installation was interrupted. Is this happening because I'm rooted?

    Got my update today. S4 with ATT. So Far not much different. It loaded Amazon Kindle app. Also instead of disable for apps it now states turned off. also Notification panel changed. It added a read mode to the options.
    I'm not seeing any lag and all apps are working without problem. I will get back to you on battery drain but for 4 hours I'm not seeing one.

    Here's a question I never expected to ask... Has anyone else found any songs added to their music collection? I opened poweramp this morning to find about 10 new songs on my playlist - hard rock and stuff like chemical brothers! Has anybody else seen this?

    I am so happy for 4.3. I noticed on startup, the phone is just sooo much faster now! I still have yet to play around with the phone see if I run into any issues. The one thing I did notice was the "Disable Mobile Data" from notification panel has been removed. Instead some reading mode was added.

    So first impressions.
    It seems to have turned my animations back on as far as apps opening and folders opening (i had previous disabled in developer options)
    Very smooth though, lot less stuttering that i've had before.
    Camera opens up WAY faster than before.
    Screen is more responsive/turns on faster when trying to wake it from sleep.

    Overall i'm really happy =)

    EDIT: EVEN HAPPIER!!!! There are new options when long pressing an app in the app drawer. Create folder, App Info, and UNINSTALL!!! no more going through application manager!!! If you do drag an app to the app info option it will take you to that app in the application manager too. So thats REALLY nice!

    So there is a way to bypass the waiting period. Just go into settings on the Samsung S4. Look under "more" and select "Date and Time". Then uncheck "Automatic Date and Time". After that go down where it says date, and change the date to anytime in the future. Finally go back and check under "About Device" and do your manual update check. If you have an update, great! Make sure to go back after you have checked on the update and check the box for "Automatic Time and Date" to be turned back on. You can do this as many times as you would like, just keep going further into the future with your date.
    Hope this helps.
