    Hey guys so I have the Metro S4 and I'm thinking about trying one of the Knox free Roms but everyone that doesn't update their modem to the mk2 modem has issues. My question is if I Odin just the mk2 modem just like everyone else on T-Mobile is doing will I be ok? I know the Metro S4 is almost the same as the T-Mobile S4 but I'd like to make sure before I try it and mess anything up haha.

    That may be true for the Tmobile phones but I dont think its necessary for us as we have a different modem altogether. No one has mentioned that issue here and I know some (like me) have flashed Tmobile 4.3 roms.

    I used the rom below and all was well.
    [ROM|TW|4.3|MK2] Modified Stock M919UVUEMK2 V1.4 [CIQ|KNOX-FREE][12/10/2013] - xda-developers
    No modem flashing was necessary.

    I'm running a T-Mobile 4.3 Stok Deodexed ROM without flashing any modem and everything works flawlessly but WiFi call and MyMetro app. I had to do it in order to get my Galaxy Gear working with my Metro S4.

    ehhh I don't know if that's going to happen any time soon. I mean the Note 3 isn't even going to get it until like Q2 next year. I mean I imagine though that the S4 would get it before the N3. :D

    I know I just like to contribute. for all who haven't updated yet, The changes Subtle but you can tell the difference. Plus there is little to no bloat at all. I also like the option under application manager to turn apps off.

    our phone seems to be supported with kies 3 now after the 4.3 update. i wonder if the firmware could be snagged during an emergency recovery.

    Anyone bite the bullet and install the update? I need a recovery backup from someone who installed 4.3 so i can make a rom.

    i got about another 50 mins and it will be up on shabbypenguin.com :)

    download and extract from the rar and youll have a fully functional tar to restore peoples phones with too :D. plus the tar is the best way to start with rom development.

    in my opinion after the 4.3 update I think you should do a factory reset. my phone was acting funny and the battery was draining faster than usual, but after the factory reset it seems to have smoothed out All the bs.

    I'm getting ready to install the update. If I notice the same behavior, I'll post it here before and after a factory reset.
