    Is there any news out there for android update for the 3g model, n5100? I mean an official update.
    I don't know what is the update strategy for Samsung, why 3g version is updated later?
    Or should I be happy to still use 4.1.2, as there are reports about problems after the update?
    I'm mainly interested about the multiuser support. Would be nice to have different config for me and my girlfriend.

    I'm pretty sure the 5100 was the first version of the Note 8 to get the update to 4.2.2. Mine was updated about a month ago. But Samsung chose not to include multiuser support in their update, so even with 4.2.2 you won't have it. Where are you located?

    Ah, I see. I am in Europe, Hungary.
    But if I go ro Settings/About device/Software update, it says I have all the latest updates installed.

    You might try Kies. Be prepared for a lot of trouble though. Kies sucks!

    Okay, thanks!
    The kies update procedure sucks, or the result of the update, the new os version itself?

    Kies can be very difficult to work with. As you can see from the forum many people are complaining about the update itself. Personally, I have had no problems with the 4.2.2 update.

    Well, yes. Many people are complaining here, but its really difficult to make judgment out of this. How many are not complaining? How many not using forums like this.
    I will check the kies, thanks

    Is there anyone with the same 'issue', or my country is the last on Earth that receives update of the 4.1.2? Not that the 4.1.2 is not working, but it worries me a bit that both kies and the device says 'no update available', because then maybe we will not receive any future updates as well...

    Im from Toronto Canada, and my wi-fi 16GB model still can't update to 4.2.2. It keeps saying that I already have the latest version.

    I'm not really sure I want to jump into the update seeing that my cousin rooted his did a update that bricked it. I don't know why but I'm content with what I have.
