I wonder if a factory data reset will be necessary before or after applying this update. I don't want this flawless, awesome phone getting messed up by this long-awaited update. I guess I have something like "residual PTSD" over what happened to my Infuse 4G after I upgraded it to Gingerbread without factory resetting it beforehand and instead factory resetting it afterwards with no effect.
After upgrading my Infuse to Gingerbread without factory resetting, the battery life took a dive, the phone froze up every day requiring a reboot every time that happened, and GPS stopped working. These things held true even after I factory reset after the update. I never want another occurrence like that again.
So, please reassure me that such things will not happen on the AT&T Note 2 by providing me with things that I should know before applying any update, whether it be OTA or using Kies.

I don't know about anyone else, but I really, really am not wanting their update any longer. The funny thing for me at least is, I am thinking to myself "this thing is running great, I have had two updated roms in less than a month that this official update probably can't touch, and most importantly, I don't want to have to depend on them any more."
I did a restore from a backup and I had the att kernel, but I don't know. I may just update it to be able to go back and do another backup, but I think for this set, I may stay on root? ...

Updated tonight and did nothing to prepare for it.
The update downloaded and installed without a hitch. No hard reset required.
No crashes so far and no app freezes as far as I can tell.
As far as speed increase, it is hard to tell the difference. The phone was already fast and fluid before the update. If there is any increase, it appears to be incremental, at least to me.

By now I just decided to let it run its course and update. It took about 15 minutes to complete.
If these update downloads are interrupted like I did here, are there any chances that the file will get corrupted? Two days after the update, I see no problems on my phone; everything works as well as it had been before the update. Even better, the 178 MB download didn't even register under my data usage records on myAT&T.
EDIT: I don't know if this is really a problem, but after a browsing session of about 40 minutes, which caused my battery to go from 97% to 89% (I use Chrome), I took a look at the battery stats (Settings>Battery) and noticed that the screen was on the top of the list. I know that's what's supposed to happen, but then under "Screen" was "Android System". Before the update, Chrome would have been right under the screen usage. I thought the battery stats were wacked, so I tested it out with another app to see if it would show up in the stats. After using the app for a few minutes, I rechecked the battery stats and the app did show up. Any other app I used showed up as well. But even after using Chrome for the next several minutes, it still failed to show up under the battery stats. Why did this happen? Is anyone else using Chrome having the same problem?
