    Hey question for you about #3. When you say it works now, are you referring to the garbled/corrupted video feed we get at this resolution? I haven't confirmed it to be a 480p problem, but I have noticed it from time to time on Youtube. Any more info would be greatly appreciated.

    Looking forward to the update.

    Yes. 480p gets those diagonal lines across the screen and you can't make out the picture. I used to get it all the time on 480p and 240p. That problem has disappeared completely for me.

    Why can't the s3 get all this? They are practically the same device except one has a bigger screen and has an s pen

    Great information and just what I was looking for. Now just waiting for the OTA in Taipei.

    One of the things that I was hoping for was the ability to customize the S-pen app tray apps or the suggested apps in the task bar.

    BTW, thanks again for putting this list together.

    Good info. My international still doesn't see 4.1.2 via OTA or KIES so I don't know. I like the customizable toggles and browser improvements.

    Number 9 already happens. Unless the customizable part is the new thing. I discovered it by accident, nice touch.

    It did on mine until I picked a Gallery image as my lock screen wallpaper (ie. not using the Samsung set). So maybe the update has an additional abstraction layer and works with all wallpapers or addresses whatever bug I encountered.

    LucidMike,

    I noticed that in your YouTube video, that you had gmail account running in the stock email app. When i tried to do that, the stock email deferred gmail accounts to use the Google gmail app.

    Any insight on how you got the gmail account to load in the stock email?

    Thanks in advance,

    Kevin

    I found out my own answer. In stock email, go to corporate, then add your gmail address, then manual setup. It pretty much sets itself up.
