S4 Won't update from 4.2.2 to Kitkat


My s4 wont update to 4.4. I just got it unlocked, went to koodo and got a sim card for it and it will not update from 4.2.2 to kitkat. It always goes through at&t updater and it keeps saying that my software is up to date, which i know isnt true.

If it was originally an AT&T Phone, you may have to wait for AT&T to push the update if they haven't already.

The thing is, the phone model is SGH M919 which is tmobile, but it is looking at at&t updater for some reason which tells it that it is up to date. At&t have released the 4.4 update but it is for i337.. What should i do?

You could goto sammobile.com, download the firmware, and install it via Odin. Google odin for more information

Im absolutely sure that the phone is SGH M919 and the error is failed AUTH which im assuming means authorization.. I just tried https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMbyITXKjOc and this did not work as well. I think something on the phone is completely locked down, and im thinking about rooting to get rid of it...

Just a tip man, I know your frustrated but please watch the language you use here as this is a family friendly community and we don't allow foul language. Thanks man and I hope you get it fixed. Have you ever rooted / ROM'd your device before? If you have make sure your not running a custom ROM as you won't be able to update the device, you'll have to roll it back to stock to update

You tried via the phone, you tried via Odin. Both failed. Have you tried using Kies?

Kies does not read the phone at all
