    Since I JUST recently received the OTA update of 4.4.4 Kitkat from Metro about 2 weeks ago, I wasn't too hopeful on getting the 5.0 update anytime soon if at all. But, there are rumors that Samsung will be updating the S4 to 5.0 according to this article; Sources: Samsung Galaxy S4 to receive Lollipop update - Android Community
    What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Metro will drag their feet since they just now pushed out Kitkat? Or will they maybe not do it at all? :thinking:

    Yes, we should get it. If not, we could flash the Tmobile S4 version of 5.0. Tmobile is definitely updating their S4 to 5.0. Its never clear whether (or when) Metro will update the S4 though i think its likely that they will.

    That wil be nice when 5.0 gets pushed. My S4 is currently on T-Mobile's 4.4.4 os after getting tired of waiting for metro to push kitkat I got Tmobiles kitkat off sams mobile and installed it no problems at all I even get the updates that t mobile pushes. one thing I did notice though is in my specs it says my phone is a m919 the N has been dropped. no matter works great.

    Still no sign of the Lollipop update for our S4. I have been toying with the idea of flashing the nightly found at http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=jfltetmo but not sure I want to take the chance or just be patient a little bit longer. The thing I don't know being a novice is will I have to flash each nightly the same way every day, or do they get updated like an OTA would get pushed to my phone? Also, not sure how stable the ROM would be. Looking for pros and cons from anyone on this, if you have an opinion. :nailbitingdroid:

    Wow, really? every other forum I've looked at says it won't work. I'd be pretty eager to try this if it really works

    Nice! I might give it a try. I went ahead and found the Candy5 rom and flashed that. I love it so far!

    So I have a question, are you guys experiencing problems with the Auto Rotate and all the sensors? I've installed the CyanogenMod 12.1 for the T-Mobile build and I've experienced nothing but problems with the issues I have mentioned above. The same with the Candy5 rom. I couldn't resolve these issues to save my life! I usually come back to Metro's stock 4.4.4 firmware (through a restore file using TWRP) because everything still works when I restore this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Does this rom have the same problems with the post I mentioned previously? I recently installed a version of 6.0 in my MetroPCS S4 and still got the same issues.

    I have the time on my phone and it works great doesn't mean it's going to work great for you but it's a step up from what I hear you're going through make sure you focus on the install process and you install it correctly
