Android 4.4 KitKat Test Firmware Leaks For AT&T Galaxy S4

Now that the Galaxy Note 3 KitKat firmware is rolling out globally, Samsung is focused to deliver the latest Android version on the Galaxy S4 as well. It seems there are already test firmwares and one of those has popped up over at XDA Developers.

Two weeks ago we saw a test KitKat firmware for the international I9505 model. Today's firmware is for the AT&T-bound Samsung Galaxy S4 (SGH-i337) and features everything the Note 3 has already offered - Android 4.4 KitKat, the latest TouchWiz, faster UI, better Random-Access Memory (RAM) management, recent status bar icons.

The firmware is 1.51 Giga Bytes (GB) big, but has some problems so unless you desperately need to have KitKat on your AT&T Galaxy S4 correct now, you should probably wait for the official update. Early adopters report an issue with the video player and a specific video codec, which makes the S4 crash and reboot.

In case you decide to try it, you can find the download links by hitting the source link below. Note that the firmware contains a recent bootloader, which means once you go KitKat, you will NOT be able to go back to Jelly Bean easily.

According to the latest reports, the official KitKat Read-Only Memory (ROM) for the Galaxy S4 should become available in February or March.
