Rogers Samsung Galaxy S4 to receive KitKat upgrade tomorrow

Rogers promised Samsung Galaxy S4 owners would see the upgrade to OS 4.4 KitKat “soon.” This was a month ago and today, according to their latest update OS Upgrades schedule, shows tomorrow (March 13th) to be the lucky day. There’s no word on what time the update will be available, but it’s best to continue checking your device for a notification.

In addition, the schedules also shows that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and HTC Desire 601 will both see KitKat arrive “Late March.” As usual, Rogers does have some fine print that says “release dates are subject to change.”

No word yet on when the upgrade will arrive on other carriers.

    About time!

  • silver_arrow

    My money is that they all decide they have done enough testing on it and they all somehow decide to push it on the same day

    • Eluder

      They don’t decide that, Samsung decides that. All the carriers approve the update, and then Samsung pushes it out to all carrier versions at the same time.

    • LeTricolore

      Yes, and silver_arrow is saying that Canadian carriers often play follow the leader. When one carrier does something, the others are not far behind.

      I have a Rogers’ S4, so I’m happy with this.

    • Corey Owen

      Except that it’s already passed samsung’s certification and the file is already on XDA.

  • Rich

    Good, now my friend that has been complaining he didn’t buy a Nexus 5 instead will shut up… at least until the next update.

    • realitycheck

      next update you kidding right? its Samsung…. based on historical trends this will be the last update before EOL when the s5 comes in….

  • BizarroFon

    Stupid question so don’t flame me too badly. But if I’ve got an S4 that’s originally from Rogers, unlocked and now on Bell… Am I looking to Kies for an update? Or Bell? Or. . blaaargh!

    • BizarroFon

      Thanks dude. Was using custom Roms for so long I don’t remember how this legitimate update deal works!

    • Corey Owen

      If you’re rooted, Odin.

      If not, Kies.

  • Super_Deluxe

    LG G2???

    • southerndinner

      LOL good luck. It’s a trademark of LG products to not get updates.

  • ToniCipriani

    Will the update start locking out third party accessories?

  • trickster_qc

    I’m currently on the line with google sales support ( im ordering a nexus 5 and had a question ) and he told me that he saw the update to kitkat for my current phone was just released.

  • Cristhian Mejia

    I got mine already courtesy of Odin Mobile.

  • 204Guy

    When will the Telus Note 3 get 4.4.2? Also if Rogers Note 3 may be getting it soon, will I get it via Kies?

    • Dimitri

      Via OTA and Samsung Kies 3.

  • Rawrrr

    What’s that weather widget called?! :O

    • Gurkanwal Jot Singh

      i do wana know!

  • Chris Edwards

    I got my s4 from Rogers but unlocked it and went to koodo will I get the update still

    • Raphael Del Castillo

      Most likely. Try over the air update if not plug it into kids

    • sicsicpuppy

      I don’t think plugging it into a kid will update the firmware :)

    • Raphael Del Castillo

      Lmao I just noticed that. Dam auto correct. Kies not kids

    • BB BB

      Lol that made me laugh

    • Raphael Del Castillo

      Lmao glad I unknowingly made a joke haha.:)

  • Richard Xing

    Do Fido and Rogers updates usually get released at or around the same time?

  • Jizz Beard thePirate

    Remember guys! There is a big sd card issue with 4.4.2!! Update with large caution and make sure that you don’t have any apps on the sd card cause they will all get deleted and will no longer be able to install them on the sd card!

    • BB BB

      Gonna pull out my SD card first I guess. So it doesn’t get fried

  • sicsicpuppy

    So anyone get the update yet ?

    • AReid

      Yes, 5 mins ago.

  • Zachary Bergeron

  • Leafs99

    I wonder at what point in March Rogers will release the kitkat update for the HTC Desire 601.

    • BB BB
