    Still waiting for the update Been manually checking since the 7th with no luck. Sprint needs to hurry up & roll mine out. Not use to this. I am normally 1 of the 1st with an update on my past phones. I'm going crazy just waiting...lol.

    Yay! Just did the framework clear and reboot (first time today) and it came back up with it downloading the update! Of course I work in the boonies with horrible 3G speed and no wifi...so going to take it a bit to download.

    But its here!

    Glad that worked for you. I tried that earlier but didn't work for me. Will try it one more time. If not I guess I will still have to wait.

    Sometimes you have to do it 3 or more times in a row. If you just can't wait, there always the manual update which us truly simple to do.

    I did that several times with no luck. I also tried to do the manual update but I guess I couldn't figure it out. Never had to do it before.

    I wish this had worked for me. I know I can manually update it... just like getting it the official way.

    Just got it the official way.... using the settings, app manager, all, Google framework, clear data, force close and reboot method. Took me 4 or 5 tries.

    I wish the same could be said for their LTE rollout AKA their crappy network.

    Did you reset your flash counter?
    I don't think resetting the counter helps...at least for me it didn't.

    Is it REALLY that important of an update? Or do you REALLY not have any patience? Sprint said it would take a week or so to get it rolled out, or you can do a manual update (which there are instructions for right on the first page).

    I'd have to agree. I've been waiting since Oct. 25 just to buy the phone at Best Buy. I still need to wait another day and a half. So, my perspective is different of course since I'd be overjoyed to have the phone in my hands regardless. The multiview to me, is icing. I certainly want it, but I don't THINK I'm going to be checking for it every 5 minutes. There's so much this phone offers that I've never been able to do - mostly around the stylus - that I'm sure I'll have my hands full just playing with that. I'm also new to Touchwiz, so will need to familiarize myself with that as well. Also, since I've never had the video popout feature, let alone multiview, I'm not going to be missing it. I'll be excited to get it, but I think it's going to be a while before I'm so used to this phone that I'll be wanting some new enhancement to it. But of course, that's me. I guess others get used to new stuff much faster and/or have much higher expectations of getting everything asap, especially if someone else has been fortunate enough to get it already.

    Ok, found a youtube video that showed. I could bring up the menu for it but was stuck.

    I blame it on fuzzy brain after working 26 days straight of 10+ hour shifts. Finally done today!

    For those of you still waiting and too scared to do the manual method, try the other method I hinted at earlier and which has worked in past updates for most people.

    Click menu, settings, application manager, click on the All tab, scroll down to Google system framework, click on it, delete the cache, force close it, reboot the phone and check again manually for the update. If it didn't work try it again.

    No guarantees that it works but it's worth a shot. For those of you who are stock, and my method doesn't work, by all means try the manual update as shown in the post by qbking77 it really is easy to do, just make sure you have an sd card and that you save the update file on it and not the internal phone memory.

    Not seeing a problem with people being eager to get an update.

    Got the update. Reset the counter (Google svcs f/w reset > force stop > restart). Had to do this 3 times though. And it works. The Multi Window is useful & the extended toggles I was used to in SG3 is a welcome sight. Thx.

    P.S: Google Wallet is not part of this update. :-(
