Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Update Confirmed

Yes, we are well aware that Samsung is all set to roll out the next iteration of the Galaxy Note device this coming September 4th, but this does not mean the South Korean company has forgotten all about the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. In fact, the Galaxy Note 2 is confirmed to be on the receiving end of the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system update, and with that, you can also have Android Device Manager run on it.

Hello, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean! / © Samsung

To know that Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is well on its way is a comforting thought, especially when the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean did happen to frustrate owners of the Galaxy Note 2 plenty in the past due to a seemingly never ending wait. Telstra, an Australian carrier, has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 2 will skip the Android 4.2 update, and jump straight into Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead.

It must be noted that while Android 4.3 Jelly Bean was introduced as recently as July 24th at a Google press event, a speedy confirmation like this is always more than welcome. Chances are, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will be the last of the Jelly Bean updates before Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie hits the deck. We await official word from Samsung as to the actual release date of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Note 2 with bated breath.

    That's some great news. The only problem I have is that my note 2 is rooted and I'm not sure how to update the OS on a rooted phone. It's just somethong I've never gotten around to learning.

    I don't know if you guys over there at androidpit have ever explained this in an article already but if so would you pls let me know wich. Or if anyone has a how to that explains this, it would also be appreciated. Thank you.

    Gio A - you just need to connect your device to a computer and use Kies to restore it to factory settings. This will unroot your phone but you can then root it again.

    What do you think the chances are of the Galaxy Note GT-N7000 getting 4.2.2? As slim as I think they are?

    we don't need 4.3 to use Android Device Manager. I have it on 2 Note 2's running stock 4.1.2. the features of ADM work just fine on them.

    I have asked about the the JB 4.3 upgrade on the Phones4U Community forum and they asked Samsung who refused to confirm; other than when they do, it will be on FaceBook and their site. One thing would be good is the ability to run programs on the SD card as currently it does not, in my version of JB ( this was confirmed to me by Samsung.)
