With all the devices Samsung's listed that qualify for 4.4 multiplied by the different radios (Wi-Fi, 3G, LTE) extrapolated over the dozens of different regions (CSCs) there are probably thousands of different ROM versions that need to be pushed. Samsung was feverishly pushing 4.3 out to the SGS4, SGS3, and N2 to have it deployed before the holiday selling season in order to sell more Gear's. It took months and the benefit was Samsung's more than their customer's. In all my time on XDA I've never seen a Samsung update pushed before there was a leak posted either on XDA or SamFirmware. In other words, it may be a while before your specific type of N10.1-14 receives its update for your specific region. But keep trying, someone's got to be first.

Yea, I'm excited, but not that excited. Once someone here says they have gotten it then l will get excited and Check every 5 min. Until then, its business as usual.

I'm hoping this will come sooner as the carriers are not involved in the rollout. I really like my note but do find it to be a bit laggy and would like to have a more fluid experience.

Well, you shouldn't check every hour. I've been waiting for MK1 OTA since early November ...

Barry this is off topic but you are on more threads across more subforums for more devices than anyone IV seen on xda. And your responses are at times too in depth for the average. Seriously I'm on here a few hours a day and all over every tech site but you seriously live here.....Not bad.....just an observation. You should be a dev

I'm on frequent mind numbing multi-hour conference calls and this is my alternative to PC games. I also travel internationally a lot and when I do I'm off the board for weeks. I'll leave it up to you as to whether the latter's a good thing.

Same here, bought my tablet early December and am yet to receive any updates.
I'm pretty pissed about it.
