    At+t note 2, running 4.12 without any issues at all. Had some good apps.
    Anywho, i don't know why i did, but went ahead with the upgrade to 4.3. Great, more apps added that i won't use. Turn around and block those from future updates etc. Now some apps are not working at all.
    I have read a little about if you have some Knox stuff loaded then basically you're screwed, cannot downgrade. What a bunch of crap.

    Damnit!
    What kind of options do i have now?

    Heh. Disabled all the at+t crap that came with it, also there are a bunch of Samsung apps that come with it now. Not interested in those either. Gtalk is no longer a base app (replaced by hangouts, which sucks)
    Portable wife can no longer be used with 4.3. Spell check sucks. Haha
    i want my old phone back! At least with my old bb you could do this.

    Hangouts is Google's new all in one texting and messaging app. You can download another texting app and disable Hangouts.

    Haha portable wifi, not portable wife!

    @mrsmumbles, i tried hangouts a while back and did not care for it, i thought it was too cluttered. I downgraded that app to gtalk. With the 4.3 upgrade hangouts comes as standard app, it cannot be downgraded to gtalk. I just won't be using it anymore.

    I feel the same way. Too big and too bloated. Since yesterday I'm hearing a lot about evolve SMS app. I think I'll replace textra with it.

    With 4.3 the file system setup changed and boot loader changed to include the KNOX security. The older app paths are changed, most apps are updating to fix this, but some may take a while.
