    Tommy, despite reports of it NOT working, I had been pushing my date out and re-checking. I was in for a 1800+ hour wait as I had gone into mid March 2013. Each day I would push it out 2 more days and try again. Today I moved it from March 19 to March 22. I Turned wifi on and the restarted my phone. When it finished booting up again, I went into check for update, and it found the update and is downloading now! 50% complete.

    EDIT: Update complete! Multi window is VERY COOL!! Ecstatic!

    EDIT 2: So what does this PROVE? The 'forward the date' trick DOES WORK, but only if ATT has rolled the update out to your area using whatever criteria they use (serial number, geography, etc). IT WORKS!

    Adding one more for Illinois! I bumped up my date to get past the hundreds of hours on my GN2.

    I am in the Chicago suburbs. Area code of 773. Still nothing. Correct me if I am wrong on the steps I need to do to get the update:

    1. Set the date as March 25 2012.
    2. Restart the phone.
    3. Manually check for the update
    4. Download the update
    5. After the update is complete I change the date back to today.

    Does that seem right?

    Thanks!

    You need to set the date ahead, not backwards. 2013, not 2012. I didn't have to restart my phone,so skip step #2. You can change the date back during the download, or before you allow it to update your GN2.

    I just let it complete and install the download and then when everything was done and updated, I went back into settings and set the date correctly.

    What do you need to rename the downloadable file to? All I can remember is update something or something update.

    Thanks for all the help on this. I am going to give this a shot tonight. My next question will be how to utilize the multi-view function but I will hold off on that until I get the update done. Thanks again!

    Yep. I lied the first time. But this time it worked like a charm. Sorry you don't have your update yet, and sorry that I proved your theory wrong.

    Yep. Now you get it!

    Demo it to your iPhone (and other Android using) friends now with the Samsung Multi-Window open...a pop-up video playing...a pop-up note open...and...a pop-up browser pane open!! Use that quad-core and 2G of RAM!!

    Long press the 'back' button to initiate the blue tab for the Multi-Task/drawer. Long press again to make it disappear. Then you can hold down the tab and move it to the top/right/bottom as well...if you do one-handed and hold it in your right-hand, you may want the tab on the right-side and the feature. You can also slide the tab up and down to find the best position to not hit it often.

    Multi-Window is also toggled via the notification panel button that is also part of this build/update.

    Also, play around with the swapping apps within a one of the window panes via the home button. And get used to that flexibility. So far so good, I hope they expand on this to make scrollable/swipeable window panes for more than two panes.

    You can only use apps that are available to Samsung's Multi-Task/Window feature ('Multi-Task' was what the sidebar of scrolling apps had been referred to as...just like on the S3, which had that on ICS and does not have Multi-Window - at least, I don't think it does or will, with a smaller display size)

    More apps will become available to the feature, as developers take heed and update their apps. Solid Explorer is one 3rd party app that was recently updated for this. XDA forums also talk about how rooting/flashing to other ROMs will allow you to enable other apps to use the feature, if you just can't wait for the developers. Or you can email the developer of some app that you want to work with it, and perhaps they will respond quicker.

    I would like to put in my input, to the 'clock pushing does not work' issue. I was up to over 1000 hours and I just checked now and I am currently downloading the update. I would like to say that if you haven't started clock pushing I wouldn't recommend it, but if you already pushed your self to hundreds or thousands of hours, you mise-well keep checking, you will not be forgotten, once the AT&T pushes it to you, you still will get it.

    Sorry added images backwards. Second image is showing me downloading the multi-window update, notice the date, today is 1/4/2013. The first image is after the update showing 4.1.2

    Thank you Peaches. My file is in an update folder with a few things inside it. Is that normal?

    Initially I was hitting the tab by accident while typing, but then I realized that you can slide the tab up and down the left side of the screen to keep it out of the way. COOL!

    Sure I did, sweetie. Had I not pushed my clock forward (as others have done also on this page) I would NOT have gotten the update. Again, so sorry you don't have yours yet.

    As a matter of fact, Jeffey, Illustrator Joe recommends "not" pushing clock ahead, and he got it anyway dahlink. My disucussion with you, an unarmed man, is over.

    Don't hate, Soapy. I know that it must burn you up inside to know that you were wrong. Don't worry, you'll get your update...someday.

    For those new to the thread. Soap4Me was spreading misinformation that pushing the date forward on your phones would delay your update depending on how far forward you pushed the date. I'd like everyone to know that if you have pushed your date into 2013, DO NOT FRET! Keep checking every few days by pushing the date forward each day and eventually you WILL get the update! I was at the end of March 2013, and according to Soap4Me I would have to wait close to 2000 hours before I got my update since I was "toying" with the clock. This is NOT the case. All is well! I got my update this morning after pushing the clock two more days forward and checking for the update!

    Jeff was just due to get the update. Leave clock alone. You will get it. If you read thread you will see pushing clock ahead didn't help. When it comes to your area, the update will download without clock pushing like an addict. As you can see, Jeff insults like a child so take advice from the source. 3 to 4 weeks to push to entire country. Take it from there.
