Samsung Fixes Verizon Galaxy S4’s Power Cycle Issue

Samsung Galaxy S4 VS HTC One-In Hand 2

Samsung has rolled out a new software update for Galaxy S4 owners on Verizon, and no, it isn’t Lollipop. Instead, it’s a small but important release that finally fixes an “intermittent power cycle issue” — as well as problems with VPN connectivity.

In simple terms, that means that Galaxy S4 handsets on Verizon have a tendency to crash at random times, and this software update finally prevents that. If you’ve been experiencing problems of this nature, then, you’ll want to update as soon as you can.

The same can be said for those suffering connectivity problems when using VPN.

This update comes with build number “KOT49H.I545VRUFNK1,” and it’s rolling out over-the-air in batches. If you’re a Verizon Galaxy S4 user who hasn’t already received it, don’t worry; it should be making its way to your device over the coming days.

As always, updates like this cannot be installed on handsets running custom ROMs or recoveries, so you’ll need to return your handset to stock if you want to get your hands on it. It’s also worth noting that you may lose root access on your device with this release, but you can always reinstate that once the software is installed.
