    Those of you that sideloaded the update, how long did it take from start to finish? Also did you back up to a computer or just your Google Account?
    Thanks!

    It took me a couple tries but once I got it to work it took maybe 30-45 min and I didn't back up anything but contacts and pictures I just redownloaded everything.

    Same here. Took some tries to actually get the whole sideload thing, but once that was going, or only took about 30-45 minutes.

    Rooted three phones in the past but haven't done it in awhile. Is this sideloading business similar in complexity? Easier, more difficult? Never had trouble rooting so I figure I might just say to heck with AT&T and take the plunge.

    Did you rename the file to .zip, or did you just go with the file, as downloaded?

    That would depend on which rooting methods you used in the past. This method sideload, is pretty simple, if it works; but fair warning....if you try this, it will wipe your phone, whether it works or doesn't. Once you enter the "sideload" option on your device, there's no turning back. I've tried it multiple times, and it didn't work for me, and now, I'm stupid enough, to try it one more time, on my laptop...lol. Good luck!

    If everything is done properly, it makes no difference what the filename is.

    However, some people get in trouble adding a .zip extension--either because they don't understand the subtleties of how extensions can be parsed differently by the command line vs. by Windows Explorer, or else because there's a conflict with third-party zip utilities installed on their PC.

    Therefore, the safest thing to do is to leave the filename as is. Or if you do rename it, make it something easy to type and don't add any extension.

    Also, some 3rd-party anti-malware software may need to be suspended (built-in Windows Defender is ok). Be sure you run adb from an administrator-level command-line. I think that covers the more common problems people have encountered.

    Initially I couldn't get the comp to recognize the device when I typed adb devices. Wasted a lot of time on that when all I needed was to go to the Samsung site and download the latest driver for my Note. After that it was smooth sailing.

    Only thing that I would add, is make sure the file for your build is added to the same folder that the adb install creates.

    As it was already stated, the entire process takes roughly 45 minutes and it will wipe your phone whether you're successful or not. So be sure to backup anything you want saved prior to attempting.

    I think I have winzip on my laptop. Do I need to uninstall that before I try again? I also have Norton. Do I have to get rid of that as well?

    No need to uninstall winzip. Wouldn't hurt to disable Norton while the process is being run. Just don't change the file name at all, leave it without the extension. Be sure to use the adb files provided on the first page of this thread:....then navigate to your adb folder, which should be in C:\adb....make sure the update file is in that folder...then right click while holding shift key, and run command prompt from there, when cued to do so. Be sure that the first thing you do, after youve booted to recovery and chose adb sideload, is to run the command: "adb devices" and make sure it finds your device.

    Good Luck!

    As downloaded without changing or adding any extension.

    Earlier, I had added the .zip extension, per the posted instructions on the xda site and it didn't work.
