Samsung continues its Android OS roll out. 

On the Android 4.4.4 KitKat front, a Sprint Galaxy S5 file has emerged. 

An”anonymous donor” provided an unofficial version of the firmware to XDA Developers, along with instructions on how to download it and load it. 

Because this is not an official release, users are advised against installing the patch. 

There is no word yet from Sprint about when they are rolling out the official version of Android 4.4.4 KitKat for the Galaxy S5. 

In the United States, T-Mobile is also working on releasing a version for the Galaxy S4. 

Meanwhile, Samsung is still rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

As Google should be releasing their next Android build, Android L, before the year is out, it is unclear if Samsung will be doing a large scale Android 4.4.4 KitKat roll out, or move straight to Android L for their devices. 

Check out the countries there will be receiving the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, and Note 3 below (via SamMobile).
