    Do not take this if you want to root! Has a new bootloader that CAN NOT be downgraded and you can not flash pre release kernel.. So if you want to root I would skip this one until a new exploit is found

    New Software Update VRUAME7 Available for Verizon’s Galaxy S4 Through Desktop Installer, Apps to SD Card Included

    The Samsung Galaxy S4 on Verizon has a new update available this morning, though the way to get it differs than the procedure you are probably most used to. Instead of being pushed over-the-air (OTA), Verizon is using a Software Upgrade Assistant through either Windows or MAC PC to install the update. Now, we noticed a mention of this tool on Big Red’s site a week or so ago but assumed it was a placeholder for a future update. Boy were we wrong. We were able to attached our Verizon GS4 to a MAC this morning, find the drive that housed a VZW Installer app, launch that app, and then begin an upgrade process.

    The update is VRUAME7, and appears to be very large, as the update took a substantial amount of time to download and then install (probably 20+ minutes). For now, all we can tell is that the update allows for the notification bar to remain transparent on any wallpaper and that apps can be moved to the SD card. There is a chance that it also includes Samsung’s KNOX security suite, which was recently a part of an OTA for Sprint’s Galaxy S4. Verizon has yet to release an official changelog, so we’re stuck digging for changes.

    One reader of ours did lose root after updating, so be careful. There is also a new line in the “About phone” section that reads “Secure boot status, Type: Samsung,” however, that could mean nothing for all we know.

    Update: We’ve been told that this permanently patches the previous root method, includes a new bootloader, and will (for the time being) make life hell for those who want root. If you wan’t to keep your freedom, do not update yet. (More at this XDA thread.)

    Yea!!

    Today about 3pm I got a notice for an OTA update for my Verizon S4. I declined it this time. It gives you an alarm type setting that it will remind you again. Pretty sure there is no way out of it. Eventually it'll probably force itself on my phone.

    Anyone else get the OTA update?

    I just downloaded the update OTA....while I was waiting for it to download, I read over the PDF doc on Verizon's website about what changes, fixes, etc, were in the new update. I was excited to see this under ADDED capabilities "Wi-Fi quick on/off toggle in Notification Panel".........once the update was complete I checked the notification panel and nope, same as before.....no on/off toggle and still the annoyingly permanent wi-fi notification under the brightness indicator. Dissappointed

    Right. It'll just reset everything, but the ROM will be the 'updated' one.
