    AT&T Galaxy S4 5.0 OTA update download

    Our buddy Shane, aka DroidModderX, over on Droidforums.net posted this earlier and I thought our S4 friends might enjoy. It looks like S4 owners will be receiving the Lollipop update sooner, rather than later.
    Here's a copy of the original post DMX posted on our main forum. Enjoy!

    Slowly but surely the Android pie chart is growing in favor of the latest version of Android, Android Lollipop! More and more devices seem to be receiving the update each day. The AT&T Galaxy S4 has finally began to receive its update via Over The Air. As most updates go this one is being sent out in batches. You can check to see if your device is ready for the update by heading to your settings, then about phone, then software update. If you aren't seeing the update you can now install it manually. The file has been captured and uploaded to Android File Host. Just download the file to your sdcard and install it manually via stock recovery. Of course in order for this to work you need to be stock unrooted, and running the stock recovery. Grab the file from the link below.

    via XDA
    Thank you DMX!

    Looks like 900+MB download. I've twice tried to install it, and twice gotten the error message "Install Interrupted", and no lollipop. Even had to redo the entire download the second time.
    Anybody know if it's possible to find the download and try running it again?

    The instal can be interrupted for any number of reasons. I know on my S4 I can't download anything without watching closely or making some adjustments in my settings first. My WiFi would cut off under (my) normal settings, before the download was complete. Of course it also may not work because of other issues not the least of which is if you are rooted.

    I've always done my downloads via my data connection, so you might try that. Of course if you have a smaller data plan this could be a concern with a file this size.

    The download completed successfully; it was the install after that that was twice unsuccessful. I just haven't been able to retry the install without repeating the long, painful download. And now AT&T is telling me my software is up to date, and I may not check again for 22 hours.

    Don't know why that's happening but the 24 hour wait is normal. Assuming you aren't rooted there may be an app interfering with it. Maybe your security app or possibly some malware. I do know that the download was agonizingly slow.

    have you tried to update via kies on pc? also do a reboot before you start. if it fails again you may need to do a factory reset before you try again. it is a good idea to do a factory reset before a major update like this anyway.

    Found something at att.com suggesting I should have 3GB of free space, so that may be it. I'll have to look into moving a bunch of pictures off the device. I'll report back.

    This "Material Design" is total CRAP. Google has gone off the deep end just like Microsoft. They're too "smart" for their own good.

    Give be BACK my DARK background. I'm going SNOW-BLIND just to change settings.

    A BIG thumbs DOWN from me!

    I'm inclined to agree. I liked it fine the way it was.
