    Anyone brave enough to try this one yet? Any issues?

    If its anything like the tmobile 4.4.4 firmware (its probably very similar), then it should be good.

    Well, I started to download it yesterday and chickened out. Then this morning I am getting OTA update that is 587.42MB. It's about 68% done. Could this finally be KitKat? I will let you know....


    Update: Yep, it is KitKat!!! :D

    i hope my s5 just gets android L and skips 4.4.4. it takes so long for metro phones to get an update that if we get 4.4.4 it will take forever to get L.

    Well, as you know, Metro skipped 4.4.2 altogether and went to 4.4.4. Which is okay, just wish they announced that they were gonna do that.

    Seems that when metro decides to release an update, they release it before a lot of the big carriers. I can't complain about that. Wish they kept us informed a bit. Im sure they feel that most users aren't usually concerned about updates like we are.

    How can we get it if we can't do OTA update? I've been looking around for it to see if anyone posted the ROM.

    Thanks! That was pretty easy! It just updated the phone came back to the way I had it like nothing happened, but shows 4.4.4 now. I might do a factory reset now I hoped it would of done that during the upgrade. I wanted to clean out the phone and be fresh.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Yep, the firmware at the link in the first post is for the M919N S4 which is the MetroPCS variant model for sure, complete with MetroPCS branding and bloatware..

    The phone uses the Tmobile network and is virtually identical to the Tmobile S4 so technically, they are right.

    After flashing via Odin, I cannot connect wifi nor mobile network. What's this about?

    Not sure. What firmware did you come from? Have you tried flashing it again? Have you tried the pull battery method?

    Really? When i have time ill look into it. I was nervous of trying this method since its for tmobile but both devices are almost the same...
    Just to make sure, you used a metropcs S4 on 4.4.4 stock?
    Any issues with it so far?

    Yes, I have the MetroPCS (SGH-M919N) S4 and that root method worked perfectly, no issues whatsoever.

    4.4.4 is a terrific update, I've been using it on my Nexus 5 since Google pushed it out....

    In fact I'm going to stay with 4.4.4 for some time since its meeting my needs ideally.

    I'm loving pure Android :)

    If your M919N is version 4.4.4 then it will work. The guide is for the Tmobile variant but most things for the Tmobile S4 will work for the MetroPCS S4. Theres a short list at post 1 of this thread.
