AT&T on Wednesday announced it has resumed the software update for the Galaxy S4, which means handset owners can upgrade the smartphone to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
A few days ago, the carrier released its Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy S4, only to later pull it without providing any details as to what convinced it to remove it. Coincidentally, the Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 update was also pulled in certain markets just before AT&T stopped its update for the newer Galaxy S4.
Now, the company says that the new Android 4.3 firmware version “includes multiple improvements,” without specifying what has been improved. The company says the update is available for download over Wi-Fi only, revealing that it measures 727MB in size. Before updating, you should make sure you have enough battery life to go through the process, and you should consider backing up your personal data before you start.
In addition to the new Android 4.3 features, the update also includes support for Galaxy Gear use, call reliability improvements and a drag and drop feature to uninstall or disable application.
The new update has baseband version I337UCUEMK2, build number JSS15J.I337UCUEMK2 and should already be available to AT&T Galaxy S4 users.
Have you upgraded to Android 4.3? Is everything working properly?
