Hello,

How would I updated my AT&T S4 -i337 MF3 from 4.2.2 to 4.4.??

I have it rooted on 4.2.2. Do I need to install safestrap? How would I go about doing that?

I do not mind losing my root. I have everything backed up as well. The phone is AT&T but it is unlocked and I am on Rogers (Canada).

Any great would be greatly appreciated, I am having issues with my 4.2.2

:'(

And outside of the us and not on at&ts network YOU CANNOT GET THE UPDATE IT IS REGION AND CARRIER LOCKED SO ROMS ARE YOUR ONLY CHOICE WITH AN AT&T BRANDED PHONE OUTSIDE THE US AND IF YOU LOOSE ROOT ALL YOUR BACKUPS ARE USELESS

My advice for you is to make a nandroid back up save it to your sd card use titanium back up save it to your sd card save everything important to the sd card because to do this your going to wipe your internal storage so pictures music apps text messeges not saved on the external sd card will be erased it will be like when you first got the phone

Now you can download rom manager from the play store and it will download and flash clock work mod for you but you must use the loki tool to unlock the boot loader

Also use call log back up and restroe and sms back up and restore set the file path to your ext sd card and your text and call logs will be backed up :)

First and foremost make sure your battery is on the charger and at 98%+ So what you need to do after you get your custom recovery and back everything up is to download the rom (extsd card leave nothing on the internal!!!!!) Ok so your backed up good :) now you have your rom good now boot into recovery and find on your sd where you saved the rom flash it it will ask you to factory reset and wipe dalvic cache and cache have all 3 boxes checked so this only wipes your internal (in the event they have an option to wipe your ext sd card dont click that box) then you will just sit back and wait for it to flash boot up and then log into your google play use titanium to restore your apps then call log and sms and boom your on kit kat
