Default T-Mobile update

Just saw this am that there was an icon in my notification bar for a software update from tmobile. Anyone know what this update is for? Had anyone else seen this? Just curious as sometimes these early updates have been known to cause functionality problems.

Beginning May 7, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 will have a software update to Android version 4.2.2/Baseband version M919UVUAMDL via OTA and Samsung Kies. This update improves the Visual Voicemail app and includes ISIS app improvements.

You can update in two ways:
  • Over the air (OTA) update to M919UVUAMDL: OTA push update is available as of 5/7/2013. Please wait for the notification to update. The update is also available for manual update using Kies.
  • Manual download to M919UVUAMDL: If you did not want to update via OTA, you can update via Samsung Kies. Ensure you are on the latest version of Kies prior to attempting the update. See SAMSUNG KIES to confirm the version.

I got the update this morning. It said it was for stability issues. I would caution everyone with this because my battery is draining way to fast now. It dropped 10% in just 5 minutes. Wasnt doing that before. I looked into some things and dont know why as nothing running is at a high %. So just a heads up that it might make yours drain faster.

That happens with updates sometimes. It might take a day or two to settle in .. hopefully.

Yeah definitely think I'll wait on this one then. I'm currently getting about two days out of charge. Loving it after having a basically wired EVO 3D.

The lag is gone! I turned animations back on and no lag. I also seem to be using about 300mb less ram than before.

I can confirm that the lag is gone even with animations turned back on. I am also seeing less memory used for RAM.

Default Updated (TMobile) but AutoRotate doesn't work anymore!!

I updated my firmware last night (TMobile) and today, i found that the auto-rotation no longer works!!

i.e. when you look at a landscape picture with the phone vertically oriented, it would be more desirable to rotate one's phone, and typically, the phone would autorotate the display.

i also checked the checkbox under Display in the phone's Settings menu, and, yes, Auto Rotate Display is checked.

any ideas to correct this please?

thanks.

I forced the update on my phone. The AT&T Updating software kept telling me to wait 24 hours to check again for an update. So I bumped the date up by a day or so and checked again, sure enough the update checker checked for the update again and downloaded and installed it for me.

Seems to be acting better after the update. Less sluggish, less laggy, overall better performance.

Thanks for the heads up. Just snagged that 21.39mb update.

Edit: and yep... the video doesn't automagically auto-rotate now. But when I checked settings under display, auto-rotate was UNchecked. Now that it's checked again, auto-rotation for video functions normally.

After the update, I went back into the developer section and reset the animations options back to 1x from 0.

Perhaps DualMonitors should reboot his phone and check auto-rotation again?

I never had a lag issue with the old firmware, but I did notice that the battery was draining rather fast. 5% within the first hour had become normal since I purchased last weekend. Since the update, the battery seems to be more efficient now.

no, and no update will give any significant amount of memory if any at all. to gain memory, they would have to remove several features, and they arent going to do that.

I am in the UK. A few days ago I downloaded a large update through Kies (it wasn't available directly through the phone).

I am now on Android 4.2.2, build number JDQ39.I9505XXUAMDM. Is this the upgrade you are talking about, or is it a new one?

Received the update this morning. RAM usage did drop for me, which is nice but I never ran into RAM issues before. Also, returning to the home screen from an app is a lot smoother now. That is where I saw the "lag" before a lot, which I'm pretty sure was just a framerate issue. The transitions when switching between apps is snappier too.

I installed this AM. The update went smooth. I did have to use Motochopper to re-root. That was no problem. I do see an improvement in speed and smoothness.

Maybe it was pre installed when I bought it? I haven't really noticed a lag outside of the occasional return to home screen.

Nope, It's not the same and MDM lags.

US getting the update first feels a bit strange though, it's usually the other way around so just have to play the waiting game now.

I updated my AT&T S4 last night, and had no issues with the auto rotate at all, but I also didn't see any real significant improvement. My S4 was amazing before, and is still amazing.

I did the update on AT&T. It seems a bit snappier in speed, but placebo can be very powerful!

I got my S4, very happy, fast, smooth, no probs. I'd read that a few people had reported lag, but not noticed this.

I then received an update (70mb in size), so I downloaded and installed. Now I have lag city. My S4 is considerably slower. Tapping contacts, messaging, email, camera icon etc. are much, much slow, in fact the whole phone just seems sluggish now.
very disappointed and wish I'd never updated.

My device is stating: I9505XXUAMDM.

Why would they send out an update that breaks the phone?
