    Hi, I use a phone with android v4.1.2 jelly bean and I just updated it but
    the android version didn't change, actually I didn't
    see any difference in my phone, I thought if I
    updated the software, the android version would
    change, so what can I do to upgrade my android
    version to at least 4.2??

    Not all software updates change the OS version.

    Back everything up and do a factory reset. It will make your device run like it should.

    I recommend doing it after any major update.

    +1 on this. It's amazing what a difference this can make.

    Which device did you take the update on?

    I backup my music and photos with Google, and reinstalling apps is easy and doesn't take to long.

    The factory reset can be a bit intimidating and time consuming (reinstalling apps). But, it's the best way to get things operating correctly. I, too, made the mistake of the OTA update. It created a number of glitches on my S4.

    I've a Note 3 and haven't received any 4.4.2 update notifications.

    Did I miss something?

    I was still under the impression that it hadn't been released by AT&T yet because I would suspect that we would see significantly more churn related to issues and problems that it may cause.
