AT&T stops the rollout of the KitKat update for its Galaxy S4 Active

Less than a week ago, we passed on the information that AT&T is rolling out an over-the-air update for its Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (SGH-i537) that brings Android 4.4.2 KitKat to the device - the chocolatey firmware upgrade came with some fresh new features on board. However, it seems that AT&T has stopped rolling out the update for the waterproof device today. The carrier did not reveal any specific reasons for doing so, but it stated that it's currently working with Samsung on bringing some "potential improvements" to the firmware update.

Still, it's speculated that some nasty flaws and bugs in the firmware update have already been spotted by either AT&T or Samsung – for example, some users report that they experience Wi-Fi connectivity issues after they've updated their devices. It is currently unknown when the KitKat rollout for the water and dustproof device will resume, but hopefully, more Galaxy S4 Active users will receive Android 4.4.2 on their smartphones soon.

Are you sporting AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active? Have you received it, and if yes, have you experienced any issues with the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for your device? Let us know!
