    What do you think of it? I manually updated my phone with the file provided by XDA members recently. Still messing around with settings and getting use to newer stuff. So far I dislike my text messages/phone character icon is annoyingly stupid looking.
    Also what apps do you recommend turning off? I see there's a lot more loaded on with the update.

    I turned off the yahoo stuff and most of the Samsung stuff. So far its not that bad honestly once I got used to it(which I still am) but only thing that really bugs me is the fact my gmail always goes off when its set not to and once I get in a building were my service isn't the greatest my battery drains really bad and basically kills my phone

    So hows the performance (ie lag)? And can I turn off the camera shutter either in settings or mute?

    Also is the gpu performance greatly improved (supposed to have updated gpu drivers and opengl 3.0)? Try running 3dmark normal tests or gfxbench t-rex and egypt hd tests and post the scores please.

    In addition, does the update install to the internal user memory or on to one of the system partitions such as .data or .system or .firmware? Because I only have 1.2 gb left i heard the update is 700mb+ and you need at least 500mb left in order to install apps other wise it will give an out of space error and the phone will start lagging a lot.

    At first I had a lot of lag but it was just a first boot and I was moving files around. You can turn off the sound but will have to change a value of code in order for it to work. I'll do a test later on and post screens

    If your phone is on vibrate or silent, the shutter sound is turned off automatically. I love this feature, it should have been like that all along.

    The lock screen is really confusing now. I used to be able to swipe directly to a new incoming message or missed call. But now I just get the notification but when I press or swipe on it, it doesn't take me to it. It just does some cha cha dance with the bottom of the lock screen.

    You can add a toggle in the camera apps settings menu by editing system/csc/feature.xml. you must be rooted and use an app such as es file explorer. make sure file explorer has root rights enabled in it's settings.
    navigate to system/csc/. open feature.xml for editing. Scoll down to:

    - <!-- Camera -->
    <CscFeature_Camera_DisableGPSMenu>false</CscFeature_Camera_DisableGPSMenu>
    <CscFeature_Camera_DefaultStorage>phone</CscFeature_Camera_DefaultStorage>
    <CscFeature_Camera_DefaultQuality>superfine</CscFeature_Camera_DefaultQuality>
    <CscFeature_Camcorder_DefaultQuality>superfine</CscFeature_Camcorder_DefaultQuality>
    <CscFeature_Camera_ShutterSoundMenu>false</CscFeature_Camera_ShutterSoundMenu>
    and change false to true.
    <CscFeature_Camcorder_DoNotPauseMusic>false</CscFeature_Camcorder_DoNotPauseMusic>
    <CscFeature_Camera_CameraFlicker>60hz</CscFeature_Camera_CameraFlicker>

    I also enabled camera during call on my phone. Again change false to true.
    <CscFeature_Camera_EnableCameraDuringCall>false</CscFeature_Camera_EnableCameraDuringCall>

    Save and reboot. When you open your camera app, open it's settings and you will see an option: Shutter Sound On/Off
    Hope this helps you out.

    So before I update via kies, is there any issues and bugs I should know about? Like music player detecting only files in music folder on internal storage or any lagging on home screen and lockscreen?

    I don't get it. Why are so many determined to go OTA or kies.

    So far so good. The initial boot up is lengthy and is laggy when finally done but give it 5 minutes to create a cache at home screen and restart and it should be snappy again. Great job sprint and samsung. Will report back with benchmarks and more.

    Go to settings /application manager /all /download manager clear cache and data. Reboot and the issue should be fixed
