    No my sdcard worked fine straight after - and its got about 10gb of photos and music which were all picked up. I've never had and mobile broadcast alerts although I've see the options are enabled.

    I did have to run the RemoveTriangle app to get rid of the warning triangle on boot though - once run I uninstalled it.

    Thanks, yeah I used the inbuilt file browser to delete the apk. The sd card issue is a strange one, it is appearing in the file browser app, I can save photos directly to it but it won't appear in the people app when I try to import contacts and as I said it's grey under the settings>storage and doesn't detail any of its contents. I can work around it but was just curious if anyone else had issues.

    Might have to put Cyanogen Mod on my GS3 tonight as I'm so bored of the TouchWiz interface now and want a change... I suspect I'll hit the issue with the app not talking to the phone due to being on Win8.1 myself...

    Google made some changes to how SD cards are accessed in KitKat, although I don't think third-party ROMs like CyanogenMod are affected?

    S4 has major issues with the 4.4.2 kitkat update.

    We have 3 S4's in the household, and i know of 5+ at work who are having issues.

    Main ones are:-

    -After update, half the apps were gone
    -Constant crashing of applications
    -Battery life is pathetic, like it wasn't already horrible
    -SD cards not recognized (no matter what size / make)
    -Much slower performance

    If you have Titanium Backup (which I highly recommend!), you can also freeze or remove any app with it.

    Thanks, I must do that myself this evening.

    Thanks, though it isn't kitkat I have, its Jellybean 4.3.1 on a galaxy S2 so I believe this is a different issue.

    The automatic installer on their site is quite good, it only pushes out a stable mod though, and that is 10.2 (4.3.1) for the S2, I think that kitkat is still a nightly mod which means it might have issues.
