    So I just downloaded the new Kies. Installed and ran and backed up everything from my Note 4. Will I be able to upgrade to Lollypop and do a factory reset then restore from Kies and get everything back?

    Update to Lollipop (if you really want to - I wouldn't), then do a system cache wipe, don't do a factory reset. The only difference is that a factory reset wipes everything off the phone, which you're then going to reverse by putting everything back on the phone. You're doing something just to undo it - why bother?

    It's not the factory reset that clears up the problems, it's the cache clear that's part of the factory reset that does - and you can do that from the Storage stats when the phone is running Lollipop. And remember, 5.0.1 is the bug fix for 5.0, and 5.0.2 is the bug fix for 5.0.1, so unless you're getting 5.0.2, you're knowingly putting buggy firmware into the phone. (I'm sure there will be a 5.0.3 to fix bugs in 5.0.2, but 5.0.2 hasn't totally bricked many phones.)

    So Rukbat is there a Lollypop update through kies available? I understand it may not be a good thing but...

    I really don't have any problems with my phone. And when I get Lollypop won't have any problems either.

    Lolipop isn't available yet for US Note 4's. At least I don't have it yet lol
    I'm hearing March as the expected drop for us. But who knows really.
