Default [Q] What version android is coming back on T-Mobile warranty repairs?

Hi,

I'm having a T-Mobile warranty replacement sent in for my S4 which is having some weird likely hardware related issues.

Has anyone received one recently, and know what version of Android comes with it?

Hoping it'll arrive with 4.2.2 as opposed to an 'upgraded' one with the Knox-enabled bootloader.

I received one in late 2013 and it arrived on 4.2.2 still. (I sent that one back because it turns out the problem is a bluetooth related one on ALL S4s).

Just to be clear, I'm not sending my phone out. The T-Mobile replacement sends a phone to you, then you send back the phone. Not the same as the Samsung warranty, where you send in the phone and they reset and update everything.

Though yes, my worries are probably over something that's not a huge deal. The T-Mobile warranty exchange is less worrisome re: the KNOX flag than what I've read about the Samsung warranty.

Thanks! I guess at least I now feel the ~$8 I pay monthly for the T-Mobile phone care will be worth something!
