Samsung rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat update for Galaxy Note II

Brace yourselves, Galaxy Note II owners, it looks like it’s time for that KitKat treat you’ve all been waiting for. A KitKat firmware for the international variant of the second-generation Note has shown up on Kies and is available in France, and while there’s no info on whether this is rolling out over the air just yet, it’s an official build and should soon be rolling out to other regions as well. It will bump the software version up to build number N7100XXUFND3, and should include all the goodies you expect from the newest version of Android.

These include a smoother interface and faster performance, white status bar icons, full-screen album art and a camera shortcut on the lock screen, wireless printing and NFC tap-to-pay support, options to set default messaging and launcher apps, transparent status bar, and better stability. Samsung’s own changes should be present as well, though we’ll know what those are only after we’ve updated our own devices to KitKat (which should take about 15 minutes from now.) are present as well – till now we’ve noticed the addition of Samsung Wallet and KNOX, though we’ll likely find more as we continue playing with KitKat on our Note II.

Have you received the update on your Galaxy Note II yet? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to check for the update in the Settings » About phone » Software update menu (you can also download the firmware from our firmware section and upgrade manually.)

Hi, i think somebody have that uploaded on torrent, but i think there is warning reason to NOT download via torrent all android platforms, cuz, it could become with virus, bitcoin virus etc, if u want original android, download it from Sammobile.

make sure that u had 100% charged ur battery before Update to KitKat, we all know that battery must be in 100% charged because the update requires a lot of time, if u had less than 60% ur update not be correct, anyway, make full wipe/reset to factory ur Phone, some applications can’t be updated because of this android, Sammobile was informed us of this.

Everything okay, I am a happy owner of Samsung Galaxy Note 2, there was an information from Sammobile or from Samsung, the Android 4.4.2 for this Phablet will come to our’s device at the end of March, Now We have May, and? No Update yet.

When we will receive an General information about this Update? We still Waiting and Waiting and there is no new information about this. Im confused, Samsung is a big Firm and they like to care about new customers etc. But why do you keep us in suspense.. i don’t know.

Sorry for my bad English im only Polish Person.

Does anyone experienced bluetooth problems?
On 4.4.2 (old and new France) I’m having terrible bluetooth signal strength.
While playing music via bluetooth the soudnd gets interrupted frequently, especially when I scroll web pages.
This rom is useless for me as I use bluetooth a lot (headphones, speakers, in the car), so I reverted to 4.3 :(

Samsung continue à faire traîner les mises à jour pour ce smartphone tout comme il a fait avec le S3 et à la fin des fins ils nous diront que le note 2 lte ne pourra pas supporté la mise à jour kit kat. ..
En tous cas sa sent l’embrouille croyez moi !!!!

C’mon SAMMOBILE!!!
WHY YOU GOT PISSED OFF ???
WHY DID YOU DELETE MY COMMENT?
I’VE JUST WROTE THE TRUTH.
THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS PAINFUL.
SAMSUNG IS CHEATING US WITH THESE POOR UPDATES WHICH CONTAINS FULL OF NOTHING.
CHANGING THE CAMERA ICON IS NOT A NEW FEATURE FOR US.
SAMSUNG CAN GIVE MANY USEFULL FEATURES FOR US.

ALSO YOU SAMMOBILE !!! BEHEAVE YOURSELF !!!
DO NOT TRY TO PROTECT SAMSUNG. BECAUSE SAMSUNG IS CHEATING ALL OF THEIR CUSTOMERS WITH THESE SHITTY UPDATES.
