    Default Jelly Bean or Android 4.2.1

    Does anyone have any info on 4.2, when we can possibly expect to see it on the GN2, obviouslly what can be expected in enhancements or new items.
    Thank you

    You're only going to get speculation on this one. I love samsung stuff and have owned a number of their phones now. Given their poor history of deploying updates, and carriers helping the delay of deployment, I wouldn't hold your breath.

    I finally got to a point that I was tired of waiting and flashed CleanROM. Scott does an awesome job!

    I remember reading somewhere that Scott was awaiting some bug fixes prior to moving forward.

    Funny, I was thinking the same thing.

    But Samsung hasn't released the source code yet have they? Once that's done it shouldn't be too long(just my guess).

    Jelly Bean 4.1.2 vs 4.2.1..... whats the difference?

    Besides I hear 4.2.1 has its bugs and doesn't play well with other Android phones.... 4.1.2 is a winner for the GN2.

    I heard all the horror stories also. I did not update my Nexus 7 for 2 weeks researching the bugs etc. I have not had ANY issues on 4.2.1. It is the same for any device, some people have issues and others do not. That said, with touchwiz, it is hard to know what is a OS difference and an Android change.

    The picture thing is very cool on my Nexus 4 but make no mistake unless you just want the latest OS, which you know we will not have on the Note 2 or any other phone except a Nexus, you are not missing much in terms of functionality. I was just glad the Note 2 shipped with JB an we got the multiscreen update fairly fast.

    Of course it will be a different story when KLP comes out in 2nd or 3rd quarter.

    Yes, sane here, but you know, for once in not all gung Ho about it. The only feature I like in 4.2 is the photosphere, so for me n they have a greater chance of messing up something.

    Same here! I want to say I saw a mod mentioned long before I began messing with this phone. It may be some way to uncountable it, but I'm not sure if it's out there.

    But I really would like it also.

    There is a maid on xda that allows you to turn sphere. It is the complete camera application, but it does add a second gallery and does not cancel the main camera application.
