I recall but never fully understood that was the problem with the s4, they never sent out ota update for the dev edition....

Just debating getting an s5 dev edition, but don't want to be stuck with original firmware/software

I believe you can upgrade from 4.4 to 4.5 but have to flash a unlocked bootloader like one from t-mobile or a international version. From what I gather from the Note 3 thread that's pretty much how they do it.
