AT&T Stops Android 4.4.2 KitKat For Galaxy S4 Active

samsung-galaxy-s4-active-review-31It slightly less than a week back that word of the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update was arriving via an Over The Air (OTA) vehicle for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (SGH-i537) over at AT&T, which would see additional features thrown into the mix. The thing is, it does look as though AT&T has stopped the update’s release today, without letting us on a specific reason in allowing that to happen. AT&T, however, did mention that they are working with Samsung at this point in time to deliver some “potential improvements” to the firmware update.

Samsung shared, “The software update for Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is temporarily on hold while AT&T and Samsung look into potential improvements.” In such a case, it is most probably due to the fact that there are some bugs in the firmware update which would not bode the Galaxy S4 Active well after installation, where a select bunch of users have alerady reported that they have run into Wi-Fi connectivity issues after the update.

It remains to be seen when the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update will continue down the road, but hopefully AT&T and Samsung will be able to fix this mess sooner rather than later. For those who have already applied the update, how was your experience?
