    Dont upgrade if you want to use your micro SD drive with ESFile Server/NAS and your device is NOT rooted.

      I’d imagine not too many people manage their files on-device? Still, thanks for the heads up!

  • C-Law

    Now I just need a stock rom and radios to be made so I can update my note 2

  • bbqsfire

    Waiting patiently for the upgrade. Wife’s phone will probably take the update first.

  • guitarist5122

    Have had the leaked version for a couple weeks now. Definitely a nice upgrade, but glad to see this the final product rolling out since the leak has bugs.

  • bbqsfire

    When I was on my s3 I always got the update day it rolled out. With my note 2 I always have to wait 2 to 3 days.

  • JWells

    Just got the OTA and it installed without a hitch. Not much change on the GUI side of things. Too early to tell about all the nuances.

  • Ckburks

    ….and maybe needless to say…someone mention when there is a rooted version to sideload please that’s offical. My software update button hasn’t worked since 4.3 sideload. Honestly I don’t even care if I lose root in case i do an early edge soon.

    Does any one know if this update Breaks FOX-FI?
    Edit– I just did the update: i guess it doesn’t!
