AT&T has issued a new Android 4.4.2 update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 today, fixing some minor issues found in the full 4.4.2 build. The second largest carrier in the United States issued the patch last week, but only today is it starting to arrive on S5?s over the air.The Android 4.4.2 update carries the G900AUCU2ANG3 OTA build number and should show up on your Galaxy S5 if you are rocking the AT&T version of Samsung's current flagship. It seems that the original update was a bit on the buggy side as this new patch solves a myriad of minor issues while adding improvements in other areas such as security. The file weighs in at 142.8MB, so it is a little on the large side for a patch that is just for fixing bugs, which highlights how many of them there are to solve. The full changlog includes: Security updates and patches Application installation enhancements Accidental emergency dial fixed on the lock screen Several lower layer modem crashes and sluggishness improvement enhancements E-mail UX enhancements S-View cover error Re-activation lock improvements You can grab the update over the air or via Samsung's own Kies software and should make the Android 4.4.2 experience on the Galaxy S5 a smoother experience. That's all well and good, but let's hope that Samsung gets Android 4.4.3 to us sooner rather than later and that AT&T and other carriers roll it out fast, especially considering other OEM's have already done so. source: AT&T
