More than a month after halting the rollout of the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Active, AT&T has once again started pushing the update to the rugged device. AT&T has announced that the update is currently rolling out over the air – the new update carries a different build number, suggesting things have changed since the last update, though the carrier isn’t saying what got fixed in the days the update was off the air.
The changelog is the same as we’ve seen on other Samsung devices on AT&T. That includes the usual KitKat goodies including faster performance, white status bar icons, wireless printing support, an integrated file picker, better battery life, and closed captions support, a camera shortcut on the lockscreen, and copy and paste improvements. For those who updated to Android 4.4.2 earlier, the new update comes in at around 67 MB, while those upgrading to KitKat for the first time will need to download a much larger 841 MB file.
At the moment, the update can only be downloaded over a Wi-Fi connection, and you can grab it manually by heading into the Settings » General » About device » Software updates menu and hitting the Check for updates button. Here’s hoping the rollout doesn’t get stopped in its track once more.
