I have said this many times also...Once and if we ever get root the driver can be back dated and then it will work properly...As of now..some if not over 70% of users who bought these second hand have the boot looping issue with non-oem screens...Which the AT&T trick works so well in the stores because they never crack the units open,and suspect the worst and swap them...Keep in mind...The phone has to be used on the account also...It has to show the IMEI has been used at one point on the account or they won't do anything with it...Good luck..

That wasn't my case. Mine was the digitizer. I switched the white screen from the International to my AT&T Mega and after the 4.4.2 update the digitizer stopped responding. I can still see the screen (LCD is ok) Waiting to see if someone comes up with a root method for this phone and then a driver for the digitizer so I can get my white A&T Galaxy Mega back up and running... Using my Note3 in the meantime running Pac ROM, haven't missed the Mega yet.. only it's huge screen...

Hello
I want to pass the 4.4 update for my phone sgh-i527 android 4.2.2
But I did not know the way
Can I change the name of the file 2400258.cfg (ATT OTA 4.4 UPDATE.cfg) to be updated.zip
Then use Recovery Mode to install this update
(Apply Update from External Storage)

I have a att mega 6.3 with 4.2
What is the advantage in upgrading to 4.4?
Am I getting any additional features or functionality?
I am planning to disable the updates and stay with 4.2 and root it with kingo (which I have done once before).

If you still have 4.2 on your phone keep it that way, you can still root and use programs like nandroid. I like many others were a little to impatient and upgraded to 4.4 now we are stuck without root

so again hang on to 4.2 and enjoy

Is it going to be impossible to root 4.4.2 on ATT version or is it just a matter of time? I was able to get my 4.4.2 Rogers canada mega rooted.. but that guy says he can't root att because of locked bootloader! What is your best guess? Do you think this would eventually be solved? There are some seriously smart people here on the xda and I have hope!
