Galaxy Note 2

Updates rolling out for GT-N7100 and GT-N7105 in some countries

There might be a few issues with the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3, but htat hasn't stopped Samsung pushing ahead with updates for other 2012 handsets. Today the international Galaxy Note 2 — both 3G and 4G variants, GT-N7100 and GT-N7105 — have started receiving their Android 4.3 updates in some regions, according to reports from XDA and SamMobile. As with previous 4.3 updates for Samsung devices, the new firmware brings Galaxy Gear smartwatch support, along with Samsung's KNOX enterprise security layer and all the new OS-level features you'd expect from Android 4.3.

The upgrade will be a significant jump for Note 2 owners, who have been running Android 4.1 since the phone's release more than 12 months ago. SamMobile reports that the 3G Note 2 should be getting its update in India first, while Nordic countries will be first to get the update for the 4G version. Meanwhile in the U.S., a leaked update timetable that's proved mostly accurate in recent weeks points to a rollout for the Sprint and AT&T Note 2 possibly commencing as soon as tomorrow.

I hope Samsung tested this firmware properly before releasing it. I still feel bad for the GS3 users who are having issues from that 4.3 update

Unfortunatly these things do happen and great that Samsung has suspended the update. Perhaps more attention to detail before the role out ( lessons learned ) next time. Hope this update is tested properly for all you Note 2 owners.

Well, I updated mine (note 2 4G nordic). The s-pen is the same as it was before and now my 1 week old device feels more sluggish.

No interest here. My Verizon Note 2, still on original release software, runs like a champ yet. There's nothing in these updates for me to risk screwing that up. If it ain't broke.... :D

I'm with you. 4.1 runs like a champ, and I have little to no issues (only thing it the browser won't download and crashes alot.) I'm sure there's a way to downgrade if 4.3 acts up. But like you said, if it ain't broke...

Installed it about an hour ago. So far some issues. Multi window is not working. My personal dictionary is lost. The new feature of answering the call by voice also doesn't work.

For those who have problems with multi-window after the software update, try factory resetting your phone once your upgrade your firmware. It helped me :)

Do you get the new Samsung keyboard with it? I just miss auto correct on the Samsung keyboard (I'm a big SwiftKey fan but prefer Samsung on the Note)

I just want two simple things fixed.
-Keyboard resetting to default after each reboot
-Screen rotation works intermittently

If those aren't addressed and resolved my Samsung days are probably over.

Seems like they included lots of the galaxy Note 3 features but they forgot to change the weather clock on the home screen. .

Moto x gets kit Kat, gaudy note 2 gets 4.3, galaxy s3 4.3 gets suspended. Not my android week. It seems Samsung is FORCING me to buy another brand.

Updated to 4.3 on my note 2 gt n-7100 in india, phone is hell lot faster than 4.1.2 but many of teh features not working like multi window or lock screen widgets etc. If u guys come to know of any solution plz share!!!
Thanks

Try to change the home screen mode to standard. There is a bug in 4.3 due to which the multi window doesnt work in easy mode.

Hope samsung fixes this soon.
