Default Firmware update

I got a Firmware update for my S4 this evening, well it came during the afternoon but I was at work when I was notified. It was 384mb (or there abouts) I've no idea what this was.

I have to assume it was this one.

PSA: New VRUAME7 UPDATE KILLS BOOTLOADER AND ROOT EXPLOITS

There are a few different threads about it, if it's the same one. "VRUAME7" would a good thing to search on.

Looks like the OP is in the UK and not on VZW.


Did the update say what firmware it's downloading or asking you to install??

I am in the UK using S4 Sim Free and it has just uploaded as well being about 384Mb. Which is the firmware numbering? Baseband version or Android version 4.2.2?

I can't recall it mentioning any name before agreeing the install.

I've not noticed any differences, yet

I have just had the update, and it is Android v4.2.2 and the baseband version is I9505XXUBMGA.

I see that it allows you to transfer apps to the SD card (or was that in a previous update?)

There has also been a problem, affecting many people, with crackling/distortion at high volume on earphones, which has been cured in this update. (At least, it has been for me.)
