    Default Verizon Galaxy Note 2 - What have you noticed about 4.3?

    Just got the upgrade.
    Post here the changes you noticed over 4.1.2.
    Do you mean to tell me that I can make a phone call on this thing?!!!

    What have I noticed? That there are a lot of threads complaining about the problems introduced. Definitely noticed that.
    Live long and prosper.

    I've noticed that people really act ridiculous over this whole update thing,,,updates and rumored updates definitely bring out the worst in phone geeks.

    Anything yet on the Verizon Note II?
    I notice that I can move a lot of apps to the SD card.

    I can't remove the notification widget from the lock screen.

    You can enable tabs view in settings.

    I think the camera is better.

    When on the lock screen swipe to the right from the time and a page comes up to add them.

    Pictures look more clear, they also added slow and fast motion video.

    Received the update. Using the Note 2 there were no issues at all. The update was problem-free.

    Anyone know how to get FoxFi working? Verizon Mobile Data keeps coming up and won't let me use FoxFi for a hotspot.

    The only way the rooted users got it working was with a framework mod.

    Did the update take away the navigation app? If so, can you "go back to previous version" in Google Maps to get Navigation back?

    I can't stand the new Google Maps, if you can't tell.

    That's a bummer. Hopefully there'll eventually be a workaround.

    I posted this similar comments in another forum. Does anyone notice a tad bit slow performance in this 4.3 update? For example if I am in Facebook app right? If I want to hold down the home button and what happened was it took a while to finally load up the background running apps..it took a bit while which it normally should.. Before the update I was able to hold down the home button and it immediately load up.. As well for any apps you are in and if supposedly you want to quit and go to the home button, it also took a while too!! Its annoying!! Does anyone experience this similar small performance impact?

    I just tried it and it doesn't work. The Verizon Mobile Hotspot comes up just like FoxFi. Are you using this with a Note 2 on 4.3?

    I've uninstalled and re-installed; I've tried the "nolockscreen" hashcode; I set up a lock screen pin. None of them work, whenever I try to start the hotspot the verizon mobile subscription come up. Guedo78, are you unlimited? I'm still unlimited and I think that's my problem.

    ahem. I am on unlimited. the only way i get the subscription screen is if i go to Settings>wireless and network>more settings>Mobile Hotspot, which of course we DON'T want to use. when I run Portable Wifi Hotspot, it enables a hotspot for me...I've used it throughout this past year.

    On 4.3?

    I see above you said 4.1.2. FoxFi has worked great for me until the update to 4.3. I'm wondering if anyone has gotten FoxFi to work with 4.3 and unlimited.
