Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware update has been leaked for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Canadian model on XDA forums. The update brings all the features and functions that were previously pushed to all the other Samsung devices already running the latest KitKat build.
Android 4.4.2 KitKat leaked for Galaxy S4 I337 works with Bell and Telus carriers and it has the KOT49H.I337MVLUFNC1 build number. This firmware version confirms that the update is the latest build and that we should expect the official release announcement to arrive soon.

If you don’t want to update your Galaxy S4 Canadian model with the leaked firmware, then the only thing left to do is to wait until carriers will start releasing the official update files.
0mega1, an XDA member and developer, is the one who leaked the files and tells us that he only now got the permission for a leak, as the build is not carrier specific and it won’t lead back to any specific person. This means that you can flash away the new Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update without feeling guilty that you might do some wrong against him or any other individual. Remember that the leaked file will work only with the I337M version of Canada Galaxy S4 phone.
The Android 4.4.2 KitKat VLUFNC1 leaked firmware update for I337M Galaxy S4 brings the improved TouchWiz UI from Note 3 and Galaxy S4 along with new notification toggles and revamped menus. Try and update your device then tell us in comments which are your favorite new functions and features. Installing a leaked firmware requires you to download some files and using the ODIN 3.09 Windows app.
Only advanced users should flash such leaked ROMs despite the fact that the files are compiling a full stock Android 4.4.2 KitKat build.
