KitKat 4.4 :: Samsung Galaxy S4 Being Sluggish?

Apr 4, 2014

I upgraded my firmware to 4.4.2 kitkat and now my GS4 seems to run abit sluggish. I get some delay when entering and exiting apps and also some delay when you hold the home button to open the task manager. Also when I type sometimes what I type takes awhile to come up and also takes some time for the phone to react to the buttons I press. Is this an issue with the new update. I have the Rogers version of the Gs4. Also if I have to end up restoring my phone, software because I used Samsung Kies in the past and found that when you restore your apps back to your phone. Samsung Kies does not restore your save data for the apps.

KitKat 4.4 :: Samsung Galaxy S4 Notification Sounds?

Apr 26, 2014

I recently updated to Android 4.4 and have encountered a problem with setting custom notification sounds.

Every time I want to set a custom notification I get this list of Samsung sounds to choose from, instead of being asked, for instance, where I want to find the sound.

My friend, who has an LG G2 running Android 4.3 gets the following when he clicks on notification sound in Whatsapp:

Whereas I get this:

I then thought to install an app that controls all notification sounds, kind of like Lightflow does notification LEDs. I found MegaSound and tried that. Gave it permission, went in, tried to set a custom notification sound for Whatsapp and was shown the same list to choose from.

Before I updated I was able to choose a wma/mp3 sound from my files on my phone to use.

KitKat 4.4 :: Unrooted Samsung Galaxy S3 But Cannot Download New 4.4.2 Update

May 1, 2014

A while back I had my brother root my Samsung Galaxy S3 for me. I unrooted it using SuperSU but when I went to install the latest KitKat update (4.4.2) it flashed the yellow triangle and said I had unauthorized software and I needed to contact the Verizon store. I did the down volume-home-power thing and took care of that but it is clear to me that even though SuperSU says my phone is unrooted it isn't. How do I really unroot my phone?

Dec 5, 2013

I have a Virgin Mobile Galaxy S3 that just got the 4.4 update this morning. Afterwards it had to redownload/update nearly every app on the device as well as all my SNES and Playsation ROMs which I though was odd.

KitKat 4.4 :: Hidden Apps Are Gone After Updating Galaxy S4 To 4.4.2

Mar 6, 2014

Before I updated my Galaxy S4 I had the option to hide apps. I hided a lot of apps that I didn't used like for example: internet, story album, TripAdvisor, S Planner etc.

Now I want to see my apps. I couldn't find them. I did some research and they told me to do this: apps, menu, uninstall/disable apps. It worked for me for some apps but not for all of them. I couldn't get for example S Planner, Internet etc. back. How can I get ALL of my (hidden) apps back?

KitKat 4.4 :: WiFi Not Connecting On Galaxy S4 After Upgrade

Mar 28, 2014

After upgrading my Samsung Galaxy S4 to 4.4.2 I haven't been able to connect to any WiFi networks. When I pull down the notification bar and tap the WiFi icon to turn the WiFi on it turns a dull green and stays like that for a few seconds, then goes back to being the colour before I tapped it. Other times, it turns the usual green but it doesn't connect to any WiFi networks and says "not in range" to those WiFi networks that I connected to before the update. It shows it scanning but nothing comes up. Another member of my family has the Samsung Galaxy S4 and they haven't updated there phone to 4.4.2 yet and they haven't got this problem.

I have no clue how to sort this out. I've turned my phone off and waited a bit then turned it back on many times, to no avail.

General :: Galaxy S4 Crashes Unexpectedly Following Android 4.4 Kitkat Update

Mar 16, 2014

I updated my GS4 to android 4.4 Kitkat through Samsung Kies. It seemed to be running smoothly initially but soon it began to crash randomly. When I tried to turn it on again it would crash again. At this point it was on about 40% charge so I plugged it in and it turned on with no problems. I had no such issues using android 4.3. It now dies at around 40-50% charge and won't turn on every time until I plug it in. It had crossed my mind that it could be an issue with my device battery but seeing as I have never had any battery troubles before the update, I think that the new firmware is likely the cause of my woes.

I am on Three UK, and I manually searched for an update for my Galaxy Note 3 today, while on my wireless network. My phone showed that a KitKat 4.4.2 update was available which was approx. 391 MB in size. Downloaded and installed it.

General :: Galaxy Note 3 / 4.4 Kitkat - Choose File Not Working (in Browser)

Feb 18, 2014

In almost all browsers (except chrome) I can't use file browsers. For example, if I wanted to attach a picture to this post I can't. I can click manage attachments, but when I choose "choose fie", nothing opens.

It used to work, so I think it's something to do with 4.4?

I have a galaxy note 3, 4.4 kitkat

Omega rom (which has always worked, but hasn't since 4.4, even on stock rom)

Is it because it's changed to emulated0?

KitKat 4.4 :: Galaxy Nexus - Change Current Clock On Stock Lock Screen?

Mar 31, 2014

I recently got the M8 upgrading from the Galaxy Nexus. I am a design student, and I HATE, I mean HATE the current clock set up with that damn weather icon and how it all looks uneven. Are there any widgets/apps or anything which I can change this?

On my galaxy: [URL]

On my one: [URL]

Is there anyway I can change my current clock or SOMETHING. I do know that I can add a new widget page and have a new clock, but I can't make this my default lockscreen. Sliding across on the lockscreen seems pointless to me - i want this visible when i double tap my phone.

HTC : Turning On 4G Makes My EVO Sluggish

Sep 1, 2010

My apologies if this has already been discussed in a previous thread, but I tried to search and didn't see it mentioned...

It seems here lately that whenever I turn on my 4G radio (I'm in a 4G area), my phone becomes very sluggish. Browsing and pinch-to-zoom using the Dolphin Browser becomes stuttered, swiping between home screens is delayed, pretty much anything I do is slower. I've killed all apps, but still get the same results. Once I turn the 4G off, the phone works fine. Just wondering if anyone else has run into this issue. It seems to be counter-productive to have a faster data speed when it makes your phone slower, basically canceling each other out.
