I think Samsung Indonesian have released the KK Grand 2 Update, my sis grand 2 already updated.
When I was going to update it via OTA update, it says your software has been recent and no need to update.

Nope. Samsung Kies is the software program for samsung mobile devices. Sometimes when OTA updates don't roll out, Kies proves helpful.

You know what, Sajid? Rooting from 4.3 JB was a bad idea. After you root, you can't recieve updates anymore unless if I was unrooted.
Emm... Let's just root it at KK. Do you know how to root Grand 2 from KK?

P.S I will accept you as my friend.

You Can Update Even If You Are Rooted.

I also rooted my device on 4.3 JB. Then I downloaded 4.4.2 from www.sammobile.com and flashed it via Odin. But you can also update through Samsung Kies, even if you are rooted. Did you give it a try? And yes, you can root latest KK. Just follow the thread:

P.S: Thanks for your friendship offer. Friends are always always worth having!

I already accepted you as a friend and now I'm downloading the KK Update via OTA. It was cost 378.74MB. and it takes like 2-1 hours to complete
via wifi. If I was downloading the rom via sammobile and flashing it using odin, It takes 9 hours to complete (depending on my download speed.
My downloads speed are low.) And, hopefully I will root my Grand 2 someday.

My Wi-Fi Connection in my home are so slooooow...
and it's still downloading

So, the technician replaces the PBA part with the new one and install stock rom 4.3 JB (The most updated one.)
But there was no signs of Kitkat update for my Grand 2, But everything was back to normal

All I can do now is blame the creator of the Gennxt Kitkat Cusrom (a.k.a. Balliboxer).

(P.S for Balliboxer, Please stop making ****ty ROM that cracked from the S5, Note 3 or, whatever! Just stop making ****ing CusROMS! It bricks!)

And indonesian kid.. Im indonesian kid too.. And i never bricked my phone! Read carefully the instruction to install the OS !!
