If you own a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Avant then you should start checking your notification screen for Android 4.4.2 KitKat update. According to the official support page, T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Avant Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is now available for download. The update will be provided in form of an OTA (Over-The-Air) or via Kies software.
This Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is a minor update, so don’t expect anything new. According to the official changelog, this update introduces support for Chinese language. Even thought the changelog suggests that there are no improvement with the new update, this update will bring in some improvements and bug fix patches.
The new firmware upgrade will bump the existing firmware version to G386TUVU1ANK3. Beginning December 8, T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Avant users will begin receiving the update. Since the update will be provided via OTA, the update will be rolled out to the users in gradual steps. This means that some of the users will have to wait for some time before the update will arrive on their device. Once the update is ready for your device, you will receive a notification alert in your notification area. In order to download and install the update, just tap on the notification and follow the onscreen instructions.
If the update doesn’t arrive on your device for too long, you can always check for the update manually. To check for the update manually, go to Settings > About device > Software update > Check for software updates. Alternatively, you can also download the update via Kies software on PC via USB cable.
The G386TUVU1ANK3 update is about 33.05 MB in size and will be provided to all the users who are currently running G386TUVU1ANHA firmware. Since the firmware update is such small in size, you can use your mobile data plan to download the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update. Although, we recommend a stable WiFi connection and more than 50% battery backup before you try to upgrade your device.
