Just a couple days ago, we talked about how Samsung finally shared its KitKat update plans for several of its devices. Now, we’re seeing Android 4.4.2 make its way to the Sprint variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, following up on the release of the KitKat-compatible kernel source for the device.

 

The official OTA comes in at version N900PCPUCNAB, and it is now rolling out to users as an incremental upgrade from the previous MJ4 build. Naturally, in order to receive the incremental OTA, you must first be running the official MJ4 build. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member rpenrod23 has provided a direct link to the MJ4 tar file, which can be used in conjunction with Odin to revert to stock in order to accept the incoming OTA. What about those looking to get in on a pre-rooted and close-to-stock ROM based on the official N900PVPUCNAB firmware? Never fear, as XDA Recognized Developer freeza has you covered with odexed and deodexed builds based on both the official NAB and previously leaked NABD firmwares.

 

Those looking to download a close-to-stock pre-rooted build of the latest firmware should head over to freeza’s ROM thread (currently being uploaded), and those who’d rather stay stock and simply discuss the new NAB update, head over to Forum Member onemanruler‘s official 4.4 update discussions thread. And of course, if you’re a developer looking to get into some sweet kernel cooking action, head over toSamsung’s Open Source Release Center.
