I'm guessing we have to be completely stock to do this? Please correct me if I am wrong, Thanks.
Yes have to be stock with stock recovery, and there is no going back.
Is there any difference between this and any of the 4.3 TW ROMs over at XDA or is it all the same?
You the man nuttmeg!!
Thanks again for this!!
I plan on putting it to use
Thank you nuttmeg. Do you know if this update has bluetooth tethering enabled?
Havn't installed it due to knox, but the 4.3 from tmo on xda is same update but with metro just different bloatware. I been running it for a while on my phone and no issues.
Are any roms usable with the new update?
I used the T-Mobile 4.3 ROM without a hitch too. Then I moved to the Google S4 international edition to have bluetooth tethering in order to have internet on my Galaxy Gear.
I've been away from Knox too!!!!
I flashed this with no problems..but wifi won't turn on..any suggestions?
Did you do a factory reset after you finish install the bew 4.3?
I've done that twice. .. Still no wifi I tied to into it and download it a ..but tells me my device is modified
Well if your knox counter is tripper just go ahead and flash the stock 4.3 rom for our phone.
I unrooted ...tried to update ota but got it device has been modified. ..then flashed this twice wiped both times...purchased triangle away. ..Still modified error. ..which rom are u preferring to?..I'm on idiot status right now...lol keep the gloves on.
You must have stock recovery but If you use triangle away then unroot your phone shut off after unroot then restart in recovery and do a factory reset you should be official. If your totally over it just flash the stock 4.3 firmware I snagged from kies, shabby has it here ShabbyPenguin
If you flash the 4.2.2 that is on the forums here and then do the update you could keep your knox counter from tripping.
do i flash this from shabby through odin?
I flashed it and still no wifi. .it just won't turn on...I flashed 4.2 and it works...flashed back to this and poop....I don't know what I'm doing wrong
We got the 4.3 update for the S4, installing it now Woot.
Yes the update has been available since the 19. I thought once I brought the galaxy s4 on Metro that would be it for updates I switched to Metropcs in the summer from Verizon and I am pleased with my decision.
you shouldnbt be able to downgrade your bootloaders. if you had flashed 4.3 you are going to be stuck on the 4.3 bootloader. so how did you flash 4.2 again?
Yup now I dont miss my note 3 as much lol
Will I be able to update to kit Kat if I take this update? Even if I hate it at least I know kit Kat will be here shortly. Any way to know if I'm going to be stuck or forced to root?
