    ...1 - When you unlock the screen with a swipe up it brings you directly to Google Now. Is there any way to get the phone to just bring you to the main home screen directly from unlock?

    2 - Once the phone is unlocked is there any way to get it to go to Google Now? On my DNA I just long press the Home button. On the Note2 that seems to just bring up recent apps.

    3 - Is the notification light RGB? Will LightFlow allow me to adjust the color, flash frequency, etc. of the notification light?

    Oh, and finally....do you know of any good youtube tutorials that kind of walk you through the use of the s-pen and all the software associated with it?

    Sorry for the newbie questions. I did a quick search of the forum but couldn't find answers to these issues. I'm sure they're here but....

    TIA for any help.

    It sounds like your swipe is starting on the Google Now shortcut, which is going to bring you straight into Google Now. Try swiping starting in a blank area of the lock screen.

    2 - Once the phone is unlocked is there any way to get it to go to Google Now? On my DNA I just long press the Home button. On the Note2 that seems to just bring up recent apps.

    There are 2 ways - After long-pressing the Home button, tap the Google button on the recent apps screen at the bottom; or use the shortcut for it (it's in your app drawer & you can put it wherever you want).

    3 - Is the notification light RGB? Will LightFlow allow me to adjust the color, flash frequency, etc. of the notification light?

    Yes, it is RGB. I'm not sure about Lightflow as I don't use it. I've heard it was causing some problems & don't know if they were sorted out.

    Oh, and finally....do you know of any good youtube tutorials that kind of walk you through the use of the s-pen and all the software associated with it?

    There are LOTS of Youtube videos showing off the s-pen. Some really good ones (for more than just the s-pen too) are from lucidmike78.


    Have fun!

    Hold down the menu button

    Yeah but there are a few conflicts, some can be resolved or worked around. There is info on the light flow Play page about issues.

    One other option to access Google Now is to long press the menu button. Personally, I just found it easier to place the app icon as one of the apps in the bottom tray (see pic).
