The Samsung Galaxy Mega is ironically witnessing a minor update to the firmware. The new software update comes with the firmware build number KOT49H.I527UCUBNJ1 and a total file size of 77.3 MB. It’s an exclusive update for AT&T subscribers and updates the operating system to a newfangled Android 4.4.2 KitKat version. The AT&T phone carrier network is in the middle of rolling out several of these minor patches for a number of devices in their range.
The official support page associated with this installment states that it comes with OS enhancements. No other details are given in the change log. We didn’t expect much else at this time since we already know Mega owners had the luxury of installing the main feature-rich 4.4.2 update a while ago. That upgrade came with a bevy of features including wireless printing, Immersive Mode, new Emoji faces, a revised landscape keyboard, changes to the Easter Egg, a new location menu, and full-screen album art from the lock screen, and more.
Installing official firmware updates issued by device manufacturers and carriers don’t wipe the data presently stored on the handsets. However, if you want it play it safe and make sure nothing is lost you can use several services including Google Drive. Samsung owners love using Samsung Kies. Other options include Helium for Android, Holo and G Cloud backup.
As you are aware, these upgrades to the OS rollout in periods to all owners using the network. That means it might arrive for you today, tomorrow, or towards the last stages of the release. There’s no magical method for understanding when it arrives. You can confirm the installation worked by navigating your way to the “Settings” followed by “About Device” and checking the new digits.
