Hi Folks!!! Samsung promised its Flagship devices Note-II and S3 a 4.2.2 update in the end of May 2013. Update includes most of the features available for Galaxy S4.

1. Real-time lingo-decoder S Translator.
2. Array of pointless camera features, such as Dual Shot, Dual Video
3. Smart Stay.
4. Smart Scroll.
5. S Health.
6. UI Changes including the Theme and Lock Screen Modifications in launcher.

Hope, Google's I/O 2013 can also bring out Note-II, S3 fantastic features a head...Fingers crossed..

There is an update but it won't show on rooted phones. It will over Kies but it will not update the phone. It will just sit there and won't update.

Well not sure what to tell you. I get one over Kies for my s3 what doesn't update because handset was modified. And when I check on my s3 I get no updates allowed because it has been modified. If I wipe the whole phone the update shows on my s3 but again I can't install it.

Not knowing what version you're on now, it's all academic anyway

Well, you can get back to stock in download mode, flashing with odin respective firmware of your region...make sure you have flash counter reset to zero, if not use triangle away so that your device again becomes genuine. ...

I've been wondering when were they thinking about releasing this since the leak has been around since february (i think) and the S4 has been released already. But to be honest, I couldn't care less about those "features" for an update, all i want is multitasking fixed. Which i'm fairly sure we won't get. Samsung should stick with fixing the basics instead or pushing out mostly useless crap. Guess i'll stick with aosp and just get a nexus at some point... :rolleyes:

That's a really old release of 4.1.2. There are loads of 4.1.2 updates since then. That will be what you are getting prompted for. You're 6 months out of date.
Well I use arhd anyway so mot really care about if it outdated. Just saying that I was promoted for updates quite a lot. But with a custom Rom I do not care.

Here's the fun fact of the day for you, we will not get s health because it requires hardware our phone doesn't have.

And another freebie the page they got that from was a fan page not an official one so it's all rumour nothing more.

That's not really the point.

Your point was Kies tells you there is an update and that it must be 4.2

My point is you are on a 6 month old release. Any update Kies tells you available is not 4.2. It is one of the 30 4.1.2 releases newer than yours.

I did think about that since i read somewhere about the extra sensors involved, i just thought they'd adapt or disable functions that really required them or at least do it in a different way that wouldn't need said sensors - there's software to mesure heart rate with the camera, which isn't the most conventional way and, to be honest, if someone told me before that was possible i'd most likely dismiss it as a prank app/gimmick, but i did see it roughly working :p
