Default the 4.4.2 update - discussion thread

Not here yet http://www.gottabemobile.com/2014/02...pdate-spotted/

But lets use this thread for all discussion about the impending update.

What he said.

If you do, you won't likely keep root across the OTA, and won't be rootable afterwards.

Any chance of a bootloader breach is also lower once you update. Just say no,
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Can't wait for this update, I'm taking it in a heartbeat. A shame there's no word on it for Verizon.

I no longer see a need to root. So much function is freely given now. The only reason I would root again would be for ad block. That said, break me off a piece of that Kit Kat!

NFL Mobile. That right there is one HUGE reason to root. Get that crap off your phone, unless you a willing lemming drone to the NSA and you have "nothing to hide"...

Seriously... I don't get it. Those of you that are on SafeStrap mk2 or mj7 are better off staying where you are. You're not missing some huge thing other than saying... Your s4 is on KitKat.
I have a sprint s4 on TW 4.4 and let me tell u...it looks just like TW 4.3.
So keep root..keep SafeStrap and wait and see if the XDA gods can bring root to it first before anything else.
I don't know I guess this kitkat thing is already tickin me off!
Do what you want.

An update is an update...I enjoy browsing through for new things. It's like flashing a rom? Some people like stock, it's clean and functional . Have been rooting and installing roms since my og droid days and this is the first device that I find no need to root to enjoy. It's filled with customizable options and speed.
