New firmware is out NJ6. I can't get the OTA yet but it is available from KIES. Hopefully this will solve all of my signal issues.

I saw this on sammobile as well...most likely this will close the current root loophole...will wait patiently until an awesome developer can create a rooted 4.4.4 rom.

Yes, I did lose root but that is okay with me if it helps my signal. Haven't been able to test it in problem areas yet.

Have you tried to root again with towel root?

I am cautiously optimistic that my signal is much improved.

I actually have 4.4.4 rooted right now on my device but safestrap doesn't work properly now. It starts to load but then reboots into OS.

The first 4.4.4 rom I made would boot, but only had a black screen (kernel modules didn't match boot.img), then I tried the nj6 boot.img and got the warning about unauthorized kernel. So, I decided to try one more thing. I reflashed the pre-rooted 4.4.4 rom I made and then flashed all of the 4.4.4 firmware in Odin EXCEPT for the system partition. This allowed me to boot into my rooted nj6 4.4.4 rom.

Ain't gonna lie ... a lot of that went right over my head; but I'm excited about it anyway LOL

We're actually getting an update inline with other carriers? Anyone noticing any improvements? And do we have any idea when it'll push OTA?
