KitKat Update Rolling Out Right Now for the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 3

As reported by member Rick, the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is rolling out right now for the T-Mobile variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, matching the Sprint and US Cellular updates from last week.

While we don't have any specifics from T-Mobile regarding the update, it can be assumed that it brings the standard KitKat features such as immersive mode, transparent status bar, lock screen upgrades, and cloud printing support.

Rick is also reporting that his update went smoothly, without any apps going missing and that his launcher settings and layout remained intact.

If you haven't yet received the 496MB over-the-air (OTA) update, you can force a manual check by heading into Settings -> General -> About device -> Software update.

Up and running great. I had to sideload the update because the official OTA detected my root status despite my best efforts to hide that fact. WiFi calling and multi task work perfect..

Cool! Glad it went without a hitch. Did you grab a pre-rooted version?
