Samsung Galaxy Note 2 getting stability update, Android 4.2.2 will have to wait

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Users of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in the UK should check their phones, because an update has begun rolling out to their devices.

The new update brings improved stability, along with some bug fixes, so it’s not the Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update users of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 have been waiting for (and which has been reportedly delayed, due to issues with new TouchWiz).

According to Sam Mobile, quoting the company, the stability update fixes battery drain, includes bug fixes and repairs some small other issues. The update will bring your device to build number JZ054K.N7100XXDME6 and is said to be available both OTA and through Samsung’s Kies software. The first users to get it are those in the UK, with the rest of the European continent to follow.

Users on the XDA developers forums are reporting downloading and installing the update, and one user has even posted a screenshot, which you can take a look at below.

The Android version remains 4.1.2 for now, but hopefully, it won’t take long before Samsung Galaxy Note 2 users get the Jelly Bean 4.2.2 bump.

    when will the update come to indian users ??

    • chirag

      its not that imp to wait for.wait for 4.2.2

  • GTI Guy

    Is this problem only in the UK? My Note 2 does not charge. After a full night of being plugged in it will only reach 41%…

    • Ahmed Waheed

      change usb cable and use a nokia one

    • Abdel Aziz Farhi

      Try to use a different charger then try to charge using a USB cable connected to your PC. if that doesn’t help there are 2 possibilities. either something has happened to your battery so you need to get a new one or to use one of those standard chargers that work with all kinds of batteries to stabilize your battery. If all this doesn’t work it means your Micro USB slot has a problem and won’t let your phone charge which is unlikely since your phone runs while connected. its most likely a Battery issue.

        I have tried that before but unfortunately it doesn’t work. I think it’s my charger. I tried my sister’s and mom’s charger but it still doesn’t work.

        • Jeric Garcia

          use different usb cable.. i got the same issue before.. all i did is replace the usb cable.. my current charging timeis 1 hr and 30 mins to 2 hrs

        • EvenInTheDarkestHour

          Not to beat a dead horse, but…I’ve been blowing through usb cables lately. Not sure if the ports on newer devices are slightly different, or if they are just less forgiving. But I’ve had this problem with Note II and Nexus 10, both solved by finding the right cable. Hope it helps.

        I am having the same problem and it is not my charger or my battery because I swapped those one at a time with my husband who has the same phone.

    • Lori Newberg

      I am having the same exact problem right now. I finally plugged it into the car charger this morning and it charged up to 78% in a couple of hours. The original house charger took overnight to get to about 60%.

    • nishantsirohi123

      thats the issue with the USB cable

      get it changed under warranty or buy a new one from samsung store

    • Bryan

      same things that happened to me in 2days ago… i charged for a long time but it still in 4%
      but now its okay le

  • Collin Lewis

    meh, why not just root and get yourself a solid custom 4.2.2 AOSP rom.. definetly the only way to use this phone

    • Abdel Aziz Farhi

      Some people want a pure clean Samsung experience. Others don’t have the knowledge to flash a custom ROM to their devices.

      • Collin Lewis

        Touchwiz UI is the farthest thing from Pure. Pure is Stock Android, AOSP.

        • Abdel Aziz Farhi

          Pure Samsung experience is what i meant. not pure android :)

        • lightyear25

          Not the best way for the Note 2, this phone begs to have the advanced features TW offers, otherwise its just another phone.

    • SeraZR™

      well people tend to use the Touchwhiz features which are not available on CM10.1 and other AOSP roms

        Jelly Beans’ — best of all worlds.

    i guess the S3 has been laid to rest for the us … still on 4.1 with att SMH

    • EvenInTheDarkestHour

      It’ll come out soon-ish. Samsung just needed to hold off a bit, so the S4 folks feel secure with their purchases. I wouldn’t be surprised if most, if not all of the features that sold the S4 are made available to S3 devices over the next few months.

  • SloSAM

    I bought Note2 in Slovenia and I get this update two days ago, so UK is not the only one and first one

  • nishantsirohi123

    I have recently received an update


    I guess i shall have to wait

  • snoopy

    I feel it could be a software problem, even a bug. So factory reset your phone after backing updata. Then reload back after reset.

  • Good. i like a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Thank you for sharing.
