AT&T has officially announced they are now pushing the Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4.2 OTA update to the users.

The Android 4.4.2 update for AT&T Galaxy Note 3 is set to bring the usual KitKat goodies such as transparent status and navigation bars, full-screen album art in the lockscreen, white iconography in the status bar, emoji support, or cloud printing along with improved security, performance boosts, and “smarter power use.”

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4.2 OTA update that it’s now being issued by AT&T also comes with the ability change the default messaging app, with improved GPS performance, Phon Dialer user interface enhancements, updated Samsung keyboard, camera shortcut in the lockscreen, improved location menu interface, and updates for Samsung’s native apps.

The new software update is being rolled out in stages, meaning that some of you might not be able to download and install it right away. If you received the system update notification, you would have hit the download button, then select install once the download is finished. In case the system update message didn’t appear, you should also check for the new firmware manually under Settings > More > About Device > Software Update > Check for update. Alternatively, you can grab the USB cable, connect your Note 3 to the PC, and check for the new firmware via Samsung KIES.

The new update has build number JSS15J.N900AUCUBMJ5 and it’s also worth mentioning that it weighs about 450 MB, meaning that you will only be able to perform it using though a WiFi network.

Did any of you guys receive the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update on your AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3? Did you encounter any problems during the installation process? Please let your fellow Note 3 owners know in the comments section.

    After insulation the battery life dropped much faster.

    Update went smoothly. I’m in California and downloaded it one hour ago, I had to search for the update. When the update was complete my touchscreen wouldn’t work with my finger but only with the S Pen. I had to use it to put in my password and to select restart. After the restart the screen worked with my finger again. Other than that, nothing really seems different besides the white icons in the status bar.

      Same with me. After the reboot the touch screen was working fine

    JSS15J.N900AUCUBMJ5??? THATS THE SAME BUILD FOR 4.3

  • mobile Junction

    Worst update! Once completed my note3 camera stopped working as did my photo gallery. Been a faithful samsung fan but this issue could be a turning point if they don’t fix it in a timely manner.

  • Janeen

    I’m having trouble with turning home screen on and with tying to text… I type and no words come up… Grrrr

  • John Stewart Pinnow

    First two boots were slugish and then fine after that. Maybe some odd wifi disconnections..

  • Rob Clark

    Yes. Failed. Several times at 28% exactly each time.

  • Rob Clark

    I’ll add kies did same failed. Twice. I have no idea. But I don’t really care. Gives me all the reason to root and enjoy the jb ..I like 4.3 better. My nexus was ok on kitkat but not note 3. Too many complaints. But I just wanted it because I should be able to test it. Lol

  • Johannes Kusuma

    works oke for my S4,
    only … it took ages to download the KitKat.

    thanking u in advance

  • Sebastian

    wow the worst update ever, I cant connect to my computer, it just says that its charging!

  • Jez Armstrong

    What a pile of crap, phone keeps freezing, apps freeze, phone stays in sleep mode, sort it out Samsung

  • Amalleah

    Phone freezes up on me. Can’t get it out of sleep mode. I cannot make calls or texts at the moment. If someone calls or texts me it’s a 50/50 shot of whether the phone comes out of sleep mode or not.

  • jean forichon

    No issue. Hopefully it will fix the GPS issue!

    • jean forichon

      Everything works very well. GPS works fine now, camera as well, email…all my usual apps. I really did not have any issue upgrading. I had applied the intermediate update that ATT had provided at the beginning of the year.

  • Note3User

    Upgraded Note 3 to Kitkat 4.4.2 and now phone loses connection to Wifi everything I lock it and turn it back on. Have to disconnect WiFi and connect again to get on. Really, is this the QA from Samsung.

  • jean forichon

    To update I had my phone connected to my wifi and just went to Settings/General/About device/Software Update/Check for updates

  • cliff

    When you are in the text message screen, the keyboard covers up the message you’re typing so you have to press the back button to see your message.

  • Austin

    Mostly everything works fine, except Action Memo. Every time I start it , it says,” Unfortunately, Action Memo has stopped working.” This was one of my favorite apps specifically for the Note 3. I can’t even view my old notes without the same message popping up and then closing the app. I will say everything else is fine. The battery life on my phone is much better!

  • Timothy brusky

    Downloaded the new firmware took hour and not a hich. Everything went like it should go. But as we all know technology doesn’t always work that way. Sorry for the few it didn’t go well. Hope for better results on next fireware update
