Looks like AT&T is not being the first to roll out the 4.4.4 update. I'm guessing it will be happening sooner than later.

Here is a list of the updates happening:

Android 4.4.4
HD voice Icon support
International Wi-Fi Calling support
Google Security Patches
Knox 2.0
Kids Mode

I got this from Samsung's website talking about Sprint:
http://www.samsung.com/us/support/Su...id=FAQ00057083

I also heard from rumors that they are planning to unlock our bootlooder. I wouldn't put to much weight in that though.

But, Knox 2.0? What is that?

Peace be with you!

I don't think bootloader is in the firmware updates if it was I would think it would of been hacked buy now. I'm guessing we need to find a way to flash the bootloader it self

There's no way that's happening in a million years.

Knox 2.0? The opposite of unlocked bootloader! 👎

Lol! Like if that's ever going to happen! If there was any possible way, wouldn't it be already done?

Peace be with you!

Another thought is, since the new Note 4 is so close to the Note 3, as far as what we can do with it, I really don't see that much of a software update happening.

Think about it. Sammy's main goal is to make more $$ on the new hardware, so why invest more time andc $$ in an update?

Just a thought.

Peace be with you!

Supposedly they have to support us with updates and stuff for 18 months. The Note 3 has been out for almost a year, so we should still be getting 4.4.4 and L. I have a feeling they're going to skip 4.4.4 and go straight to L, which I will be avoiding at all costs.
