Default Phone keeps rebooting since OTA

Hi
I have UK version of s4, not rooted and on standard rom.
I have done an ota last week and since then the phone keeps on rebooting.
So much for the promised stability improvements!
I'm now on kernel 3.4.0.1567293
Android 4.4.2
I have done a master reset but the issue persist...
Any suggestions?

I think I have the same problem. I bought mine from Amazon Spain a few weeks ago. Since the OTA a couple of days ago, every time I open the flip cover, after about 10 seconds it reboots. It's not a bootloop. Mine was rooted with Towelroot. I had to reroot with the latest version of Towelroot. I didn't install a custom ROM as I want to keep my warranty valid. Was yours rooted?

I haven't tried a factory reset yet but, in view of your experience, it doesn't look like that will help.

My Build number now is KOT49H.I9505XXUG.NF1
Kernel 3.4.0 - 1854187

Are we alone?

How can I get back to the previous version?

Hi... Mine is totally standard... Not rooted. I have seen some posts from other people but not that many. I wonder if any of my apps clashes... I have written to Samsung...

I had the same problem. Solved it by flashing other kernel.

I think mine is sorted now, too. I thought I had fixed it last night. After reading another thread, I switched my spare battery. It worked for an hour but then started the same problem.

My next step was a factory reset but not letting Google automatically reinstall my old apps in case one of these was the culprit. I haven't finished reinstalling everything but, so far, it has not rebooted itself. Fingers definitely crossed. Probably posting this will be my downfall!
