Sprint Galaxy Note 2 update available, brings multi-window feature not Android 4.2

by: Chris SmithNovember 7, 2012

Some of those Sprint customers that are already rocking a Galaxy Note 2 may not have the multi-window feature enabled on their shiny new phablet – an issue spotted with other Galaxy Note 2 as well, but an issue that can be fixed with an update.

And Sprint has just such an update available for you at this time, software version L900VPALJC that fixes various issues and enables the expected feature. Here’s the changelog of this update, as posted by Sprint:

Samsung Galaxy Note II Software Update – L900VPALJC


  • GPS lock settings can be defaulted by corporate device administrators
  • Emails go to Outbox when in no coverage area or airplane mode
  • Text message notification will beep while in a voice call
  • Multi Window View feature to run two apps on the screen at the same time

But don’t expect any miracles! We’re not looking at Android 4.2 Jelly Bean here, and it’s too early to talk about anyway given that Android 4.2 is not even out yet for current Nexus devices.

Instead it’s a minor update that will improve your Galaxy Note 2 experience. Did you get it already?

    Siiiiiick. I’m a Sprint Gn2 and I’m stoked, this is a HUGE feature

    I’m still waiting for Rogers to get the phone in stock. All the stores in my city have yet to receive a single unit according to their sales people. And if that’s any indication I don’t expect to see this update for 4-6 months minimum.

      Creeping up on 10 days after launch…still no phones available.
      Samsung and Rogers has reeaally dropped the ball on this phone. I’ve ventured past frustration, entering appalling stage. I’m not even a Rogers customer yet, and I’m already sick of their s***.

        go with Bell, they had it day 2, although the white one took a few more days – apparently due to the hurricane… i like bell better any ways (Y)

    Woke up this morning and it was there. It also fixed the top of the pull down screen. There is now multiple widgets and the bar is scrollable.

    Been well over a week that i have ordered my gn2 from rogers and still nothing. I have called rogers 2 times already both times saying the unit was not sent yet, but at the end of the conversation they confirmed the phone was on its way. For delivery it would be UPS but still no tracking information.
