Okay, I'm a Noob.

I just downloaded the new GG software update, but in order to view full notifications, apparently, one is also supposed to update the firmware.

How the heck do I do that??

(thank you in advance if you can help)

When you see the word reboot on it you have to tap the button quickly like 5 or 6 times and that'll take you to the options select recovery by pressing the button again and hold for 3 seconds no more no less it can be tricky.

I see the firmware d/l in this thread and will do that later on today. So can we use this update on the USA GG or is it region specific? Also how do we update the GG Manager software on my GN3? I cannot find the stupid Samsung App store on my GN3. Thanks again.

Yes you can. I was on the same thing(got mine at best buy) and used the UK version which apply to all the US versions it does not matter if you get it from sprint or att it's the same. The update is a lot better.
