I tried installing the update but I was rooted with cwm recovery so the only thing the update did was install google maps to the latest version. After reading this thread I decided to update through samsung kies, which was relatively painless but I didn't want to lose my search function so before I updated, I copied the /system/app googlequicksearchbox.asp to my external sd card. Then updated through Kies and rooted again. Then I renamed googlequicksearchbox_usa.asp to some random backup name and copied googlequicksearchbox.asp back from my sd card back to /system/app. No Google now required. Updates are nice, especially the brightness bar. And the search works the same as it always had. Then I downloaded triangle away to reset my counter back to zero because I had rooted twice at this point. Please support the developers by purchasing triangle away from the store but in case you cannot purchase it thank Chainfire here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1494114

Can someone please post the original googlequicksearchbox.apk? I forgot about this until after I did the update. I thought I could pull the old apk out using Nandroid Browser, but it just just hangs on a spinning circle when trying to drill down into any archives. Thanks!

You can always download the rom and extract it from there.

Has anybody seen a drop in battery life and performance? For some reason my device lags more now, when typing the keyboard stops working (I can press the keys but nothing appears in the text box) and this all started after the update.

Any idea what it could be? any way to maybe retry the update and see if that makes things better?

I have definitely noticed some lag/performance issues. But I've also been testing various apps right and left so I didn't know if it was the update or the apps. Plus I've noticed it most in SMS/MMS threads with 1,000+ messages, which I assume doesn't help one bit.

I haven't really been monitoring the battery life, but nothing has jumped out at me as being off.

I have not had your problem with the keyboard (using SwiftKey).

Maybe revert to backup, then reapply update via Kies? (OTA didn't work for me.)
