    Those of ypu wanting to restore app data try my backup pro from the playstore. Its 5 dollars to buy it. There is a free version as well. It backs everything up to the sd card or cloud whichever you choose

    Lame response from Samsung as follows:
    Thank you for contacting Samsung Customer Support.

    I apologise that you have been experiencing issues with your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 after the most recent update to Jelly Bean 4.3, I understand this must be frustrating as updating should be an easy process.

    As we are currently investigating the reported issues with Galaxy 4.3 Jelly Bean update, the upgrading service has been temporarily suspended. We hope to have a patch or update soon.

    We are committed to providing customers with the best possible mobile experience, and will ensure to resume the upgrading service at the earliest possibility.

    Once the issues have been resolved an update will be released to get your device back in working order.

    Regarding the saved application data, you will need to contact the application's developers for assistance.

    Most developers have an ‘Email Developer’ link advertised on their app’s page on the Google Play Store for customers to provide feedback about issues like this.

    I have responded with a little vitriol as typical large corporation attitude..blame the little guys, the app devs.. really!!? What ALL of them messed up, I don't think so. At least they have acknowledged the battery drain issue. My battery does seem to have improved thanks to your kind suggestions. Thanks newbroot83 for the back up tip. I'll look into it

    I havent had any battery drain issues. I put in my stock battery just to see how it would do. After a full day I was down to about 50%. Hopefully a reset will fix it...

    can you elaborate??? ART ? Dalvik?
    Sorry, here it is. Go to Select Settings, Developer options, select Runtime. change the setting to Use Dalvic. Reboot the phone. Once phone comes back it will update you apps. Next, go to Settings, Backup and Restore and select Factory Data Restore. Phone will put to factory restore. Please save all your data, apps information, SMS's etc because phone will be "completely" wiped out. I hope this helps. This worked on my Google Play Edition HTC One running 4.4.2

    Yup. Already looked it up. We're having issues with 4.3. There is no such option (select runtime) in 4.3

    Same problem I face here with my Note 2 (GT-N7105). After update to 4.3, battery drains off like flowing water!
    Just like what you have experienced, Almost 30% drop during my sleeping hours from 11pm to 7am. The phone not even doing anything!
    This sucks! Time to consider other brand.



    Yes sure..I was about to post the screenshots from wakelock detector, stock battery app, etc. Will post those soon for you to have a look.

    It's like something is wrong,
    1.Merely unlocking the phone and mumbling around here and there like browsing the music or changing songs eats 1-2% battery.
    2.At night if I leave the phone at 100 %, by morning it used to be at most 90%, but now, it drains to almost 70%.
    3.Idle phone (sync OFF, Mobile data/Wifi ON, Quick glance ON) consumes around 7% per hour.
    4.Even the power saver mode does not seem to be working anymore (same amount of battery drain)

    All of the above started happening after the 4.3 upgrade. I was very happy with the battery life with 4.1.2.


    P.S Now I have turned off WIFI/Data and observing the phone with
    1.Auto brightness
    2.Quick Glance enabled
    3.Smart Stay ON
    4.Power Saver OFF

    Have you tried a reset. All you need to do is go to settings my device and check backup app data and all that. Allow it to sync. After it syncs everything do a factory reset. After you do the initial setup and log back into Gmail it will go ahead and re download apps with app data, all wife passwords and all that. The only thing I lost was apps I got from unknown sources and my messages. You can also use my backup pro to backup everything. But an fdr should clear up most issues.

    We can't really blame the update without clearing everything first. Sometimes the old software will muddle up the new one. Until we clear everything from the old setup we are at fault. There's a reason why everyone tells you all to do a reset after an update. It's not just people grasping at straws. It has been tried and definitely works. I've had great battery life all along, but since I did the fdr it's got even better. Even if everything isn't backed up, it's not like your all world's will end because you had to take a little more time to get this great beast back where it needs to be.

    What info are you wanting to backup? Basically, any screenshots that aren't on my card, I move to my SD card. I copy my download folder and move it to my SD card. I copy ringtones I want to keep and put them on my SD card, as well as wallpapers.

    Then I do the reset, choose the one that doesn't wipe the card. My contacts, calendar, books, etc, come back when I sign into my Google acct. I go back to the play store and choose the apps I want to install again, under "all" that is under "my apps". Also, if you want, you can take screenshots of your homescreens to set all icons, widgets, etc back up like I had it. If you use a launcher, you can do a backup before you reset and it will back up to your card and you restore your desktop. No launcher, you just look at the screenshots and set it back up.

    The new auto adapt screen tone seems to hit the battery hard. Might have to select a tone instead.

    Problem solved.:

    I bought a Moto X, and--although we used to have 4 Samsung phones in our house, we will never buy another Samsung product again. Good riddance to Samsung's Knox software, the battery drain that wrecked a phone I loved, and any other Samsung product of any kind. I don't believe in good conscience I could even give away this SGS3 phone.

    A new update N7100DDUEML4 couple of days back.

    Had been testing it all this while, and it turns out to be smooth and very battery efficient. Wakelocks are almost gone. And the battery lasts for more than 30hrs with:

    WIFI - ON
    MOBILE DATA - ON
    BRIGHTNESS - AUTO (FULL)
    INTERNET/GAMING - Moderate

    1. Can verizons sch-1605 be rooted yet?
    2. If I delete everything related to knox, then factory reset then knox will just be put back on. Sorry, but I don't quite see where that's going?

    Mine has been great anyway. I lose about 1% an hour with use. Without use I may use 2% in 8 or 9 hours

    1) first of all , you need to root the device .
    2) install root explorer .
    3) search for knox in the root explorer.
    4) delete anything named knox.
    5) make factory reset .
    6) restart the device .

    I understood the process but not what you are trying to accomplish. What I am asking is if this actually removes knox or does knox reappear?

    I too had inexplicable battery drain after updating to 4.3 on my S3 (see below).

    Note 2: Battery Drain after 4.3 update-screenshot.png

    What got my battery life back to normal was to just to let it completely drain to the point where the phone shut down by itself. Then I gave it a full charge and turned it back on. I strongly recommend this method to people who have experienced battery drain since the update.

    I've gone days with great battery life since so let me know if this works for you as well.

    I cant get my battery to charge 100% after the update. I have the phone charging for 6+ hours and I will only get 30-40% charge. I will have to do a factory set as well I guess

    Been reading this thread all morning. I too have battery drain. This morning I did not touch my phone for 1hr. It went from 92% to 87%. No use!. I have not reset it yet. Will try to drain it all the way today and try that method before reset. So... it should be here in the next hour or so.
    Not understanding the factory reset your guys are saying. Factory reset then, update, then factory reset. Redundant? Wouldn't you be back to where you started?

    Well, what I have done so far is turn off Samsung Hub and all Samsung stuff. It's been most of the day and I'm down to 70% which is acceptable. That seems to help a lot. Normal day I would be down to 50% use for a day maybe 40% by 11:00 pm or so.
