If you cant wait then you could go to SamMobile and flash the Russia version via Odin.

Installed the Russian Kitkat update and everything works fine (its like international rom not specific to russia only).
I can confirm that the device is acting very smoothly with few UI enhancements but I didnt noticed any change on the Camera app.
My little problem is that I lost root and now I cant get it back with any program such as Kingoroot or Saferoot. Do I need to Factory Reset the phone? any Idea ?

Now that it's 4.4.2 the older root methods may not be available anymore. It's possible that on the new firmware there is no root at the moment mate. I've seen it happen in other devices. Those root methods will need to be updated to support 4.4.2 kernels now for the C105 or they won't work.

Edit: one more quick thing mate. The wife wants to know how the message app is. Does it support emojis properly now?. The old firmware didn't and it's driving her bonkers.

I need at least 4.3 to make my future smartwatch work.

I have the international version. The update was ota. I'm on AT&T though. I wish I had the AT&T version. AT&T lte doesn't work on the international version.

Towelroot didn't work for me. Pressed the button, it did nothing.

i updated to kit kat, two problems:
1. you cant hide apps from launcher, you can only disable them.
2. keyboard problem, you cant change languages from the virtual keyboard spacebar.

tried to go back to 4.2.2 but i encountered in phone stuck after the flash,
so i went back to 4.4.2 and trying to fix this issues.

1. I use Nova Launcher Prime, and pretty much decent compared to touchwiz (hide, rename, and folders, + more)

2. I use 3rd Party Keyboard instead, w/ dual language or more like SwiftKey
