Android 4.3 update for T-Mobile Galaxy S4 available OTA


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. See 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.
