Sprint’s Galaxy S4 received the KitKat update last week and it seems that US Cellular is next in line to release the KitKat update for its Galaxy S4 as well, according to a leaked internal document for US Cellular. The update which they are calling “Maintenance Release” will be available by tomorrow February 19.
However, not everyone will receive the KitKat over-the-air update on the launch day. Customers who meet a set of requirements will receive the update within 10 days after official launch and users will have to be on the latest approved software version. In addition, the update will remove MobiTiles and Daily Perks which means that users will have to re-download it from the Google Play Store. Here are the requirements mentioned in the leaked document :
Approved software versions MDB/MDL/MF5/MK2 on device.
Device must be linked to a valid Google account.
Device must be registered to the Samsung FOTA server.
Device must have access to Wi-Fi to download the upgrade.
Sprint was the first carrier to release the KitKat update for its Galaxy S4 and it’s good to see US Cellular making a great effort to roll out the KitKat update to its Galaxy S4 customers as well.
