    How do you install on your pc?

    Posted via Android Central App
    Go to https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=Jx-xG6IC

    Download for your system type.
    Plug in your phone and Kies will detect the device. It will automatically tell you there's a new version for the phone and ask if you want to install it.

    I got tired of waiting for the OTA. Used Kies instead. Just make sure you uninstall it if you have a Mac. It breaks Android File Transfer. Kies worked fine.

    Received it OTA last night at 11:30 pm Pacific time. Nothing but problems since the upgrade. Most apps crash and won't work. I think having to do a factory reset after a service update is BS. I'm on sprint in California.

    I am thinking the versions are not the same. The Baseband version on the Sprint site does not match the Kies update. And some folks are saying some Note 3 functionality is missing. Could someone who updated via OTA confirm their Baseband number? Were apps like S Note updated as part of the update? Is the Air Command function there following an OTA update?
    In response to the versions not being the same since I had the same question before I went ahead and did the Kies update from Samsung anyway, bako88fan, just posted his/her screen shot of the OTA download he/she received and the build number is the same as the one I installed from via Kies from Samsung.

    L900VPUBMK4

    Maybe I overlooked something but it seemed to me most everything else matched as well. Only note of difference is that bako88 notes problems. I thankfully have had none as yet.

    Anyone having issues with S Note following the Kies update? The app will launch but crashes a few second after opening. Hoping to avoid a factory reset.

    :-( No, sorry I haven't experienced that. Wish I could be of help. Have you tried going back to the 4.1 build and then reinstalling?

    Just a thought, but when I upgraded to 4.3 from Kies, there WAS an S Note update that occured. Have you checked that through Samsung Apps? I own my own business and run the bulk of everything with my phone and tablet so I definitely appreciate your need to have things run smoothly the first time with your device, let alone the aggrevation of needing to reset.

    I thought there was suppose to be, but don't recall an update to S Note during my Kies update. I did look through for ways to update but haven't found an option. How did you determine there was S Note update?

    There was a pop up on the screen that I noticed among many others.

    Yeah, I didn't see any pop ups. My phone certainly completed the Jellybean update but unsure about the apps.

    I've noticed you have to use trial and error with apps to SD. Some apps don't function properly on SD or their shortcut dissappear off the home screen regularly. Specifically Firefox, all of my favorite pages I added to the home screen would erase after a device restart. Other apps have given me similar problems.

    I've also noticed excessive battery drain when not in a wifi Network. I don't know if it's just due to a bad signal or what but it's noticeable. On the other hand it seems like it's better battery life when in a constant wifi area vs 4.1

    You download and install Kies from the Samsung website on your computer. Once installed, plug in your phone using your USB cord. The kies program will automatically detect your phone. The first time you connect it may take a few minutes for Kies and your phone to sync together.

    Once connected, Kies will show a pop up that states there is an update available for your phone and asks if you want to install. Click yes or okay and let it do it's thing.

    I've had the update for about 2 week nothing but problems! Hard reset twice just get the phone to stop freezing up. Now wifi issues, lag, home button not responding, sprint stated that it's out of there hands. But when it does work properly the small subtle changes they've made to the screen and menus and so forth are very nice and I like it and I don't want to have to roll the phone back to the previous Android but we'll see what happens.

    Home button lag is S voice being set to double tap. Open S voice>menu button>settings>uncheck Open via the home key. It will speed things up quite a bit. Hope this helps with your home button lag issue.
