    Hi there, this is my first post so apologies in advance. My fone is not rooted and my carrier is 3 UK. This morning I received an ota software update from 4.2 to 4.3 jellybean, is this normal? As my previous S2 is still running gingerbread also does this mean that I will auto update to kit kat 4.4 in the future? Many thanx from a techno-dummy!

    Yes, most carriers at this point have upgraded the S4 to 4.3.


    Yes again. If your carrier is doinf an OTA update from 4.2 to 4.3 then it's almost certain they will OTA update to 4.4 when it's released.

    One of the advantages of owning a Samsung high end phone is fairly quick updates. Not as quick as a Google Nexus or Google Edition phone, and maybe not for as long, but better than average.

    One concern though is those updates can lead to issues! Not all updates are good updates, and that's even true with Nexus devices (and Apple products). For me that meant having to upgrade the cables on my car phone chargers, and also losing the ability to run the version of Google Maps I liked. Others have had more serious issues.

    I don't have any issues myself. Only with apps which haven't been updated and keep crashing. But that is obviously not Samsung's fault.

    Virtually all Galaxy S2's have now been updated to Jelly Bean, Android 4.1.2. See, Jelly Bean update - Dummies Guide.

    I'm guessing that the OP has an unbranded, UK, phone on CSC code BTU. See this post, here, for more information on CSC codes.

    I also have an unrooted Samsung Galaxy S4 but on the Tesco (O2) network. I just did the "software update" but the Android version still shows 4.2.2. So, is "software update" different from the Android version update?

    I don't know what the big hullabaloo is about any of the updates anyway. I'm still on 4.2.2 and loving it. My N7 is on 4.4 and the only thing I found so far that I liked was that they finally got rid of the big bold hour number in the clock.

    Besides, I can still root my phone in 4.2 (which I did so I can use Google Wallet).

    NO UPDATES FOR ME (until I'm convinced I really need them)!

    I take your point about updates and I was of the same mindset but this update came automatically OTA and I just wanted to see wot the script was. Ciao 4 now.
