Let this be a warning, the latest update put my phone in a reboot loop. After trying to apply the update clockwordmod would come up on restart, installation would fail, couldn't see why, too fast, the phone would start up and after 15-20 sec it would shutdown to start all over again.

Don't know what update does as I have a french phone and all update messages come in french. I saw that USB on the go was mentioned and some other bug fixes.


TO FIX:

Enter fastbood mode (VOL DOWN+POWER)

From the PC enter:

fastboot erase cache


Can someone more knowledgeable say why the update fails?

Regards

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I was thinking that you need the stock recovery and not CWM or TWRP.

I had the same problem. You have to go back to latest stock rom before installing the update, and then rooting again. Worked fine for me.

See this guide for example : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2542219

Stock RECOVERY, KERNEL and NO changes in /system partition whatsoever (including root.)
With some experience there┤s nothing easier than flash stock ROM. Or do it thrice a day if you feel like that

This is the Philz recovery for the Samsung S4, I'd recommend you fix the link before we have people wondering what went wrong
