While having to deal with some of the issues raised when the Samsung Android 4.3 rollout went awry, carriers have been slow to accept the fixed version and roll it out to their end users. However, T-Mobile has announced that the much-anticipated Android 4.3 Jellybean update is now rolling out for Galaxy Note 2 devices on their network.
Since back peddling over the initial release of Android 4.3, fixes have been provided that resolve many of the issues found in the ill fated rollout. With those fixes in place and no reports of any more issues, carriers have deemed it proper to continue to roll out the Jellybean update. T-Mobile has jumped on board and is now providing an OTA update for the Galaxy Note 2 for Android 4.3.
