Over a week after the download was supposed to arrive, Android 4.3 has finally landed for Tmo-flavored Galaxy S4′s. The update went live at around 5am this morning and is available as an over-the-air update. This update includes KNOX and Samsung Gear support.

If you have a Galaxy S4 on T-Mobile, you should have received a notification to inform you of the update’s availability. If not, head in to your phone’s settings menu and check manually there.

“Beginning November 26, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 will have an optional software update to Android version 4.3 / Software M919UVUEMK2 via Over-the-Air manual pull down and Samsung Kies over Wi-Fi only. This update includes KNOX and Samsung Gear support.

You can update in two ways:

  • Over the air (OTA) update to M919UVUEMK2: OTA manual pull down update is available as of 11/26/2013 through February 1, 2014.

  • Manual download to M919UVUEMK2: If you did not want to update via OTA, you can update via Samsung Kies. Verify you are on the latest version of Kies prior to attempting the update. Seehttp://www.samsung.com/us/kies/ to confirm the version.”

As for the reason behind the delay, it’s not been confirmed. However, following the bug-ridden launches of 4.3 on Verizon and AT&T S4′s, it’s safe to assume T-Mobile wanted make extra sure that its users weren’t going to suffer.
