This is worked GREAT for me to get from 4.3 to 4.4.2 since I had No luck installing the OTA of 4.4.2 on my i747. Very EASY WAY.

So, this is the "official" 4.4.2 OTA update? Without tripping anything? There's no mention of that anywhere in the video... There's also no links as to where this "update zip" came from like the dude said...

Not sure on tripping. Mine was tripped anyway and out of warranty. Sorry can not help you on that part. Just know it runs well and shows 4.4.2 Should not do anything to a phone if worried about warranty. You are Always taking a Chance with any downloaded rom other than the one you get over phone. My opinion.

Yep you got 4.4.2 NOW. Not that it is much different. More settings if you get into that much. Have a nice 4th
