    Did the download over kies hard line yesterday and aside from wiping my home screens it's been great. BATTERY Life for 14 hours no problem. That google now settings thing is correct but I dont care and someone figured it out anyway. Loving it, no new phone for me this July.

    Work-around: Simply click on one of the items in Google Search/Now (i.e.: Weather Forecast Graphic), after that you should be able to access the menu without it "flashing away".

    Good Luck!
    Thanks for that. I've tried that before but the menu still disappears straight away. It's no big deal, just annoying.

    So I went to my sprint store to have the update done, and they look it up and tell me that it was released and then pulled today until April 1st. They told me to come back on the 1st and they would be able to do it. Oh, and they also said that it wasn't even the Samsung site anymore, which they checked as well. Then they read the message from the Samsung site that said it's been pulled until April 1st. Anybody else experience this at all?

    I think they're pulling an early April Fool!

    I went to clear data from the Google Search App and the menu doesn't disappear anymore. Settings>Application Manager>All>Google Search>Clear Data. I also Cleared the Cache.

    Brought my phone into the Sprint store today on my lunch break, picked it up afterwards and this thing is running smooooth. Was glad I did it that way. Was quick and painless. If only all updates were this easy. No complaints so far, did have that issue with Google now but all tips on this thread fixed it no problem. I'm thinking this might be the final hoorah for this device though. Only if sprint would have a new nexus device.....

    Although when I brought my phone in around 11am Arizona time they were a little thrown off and told me that it wasn't available. I asked them politely to check their updates and sure enough they found it. Kind of caught them off guard.

    This did not work in my case. But I was able to time it right and hit the settings button before it disappeared.

    You can manually flash the firmware via Odin or you can just simply visit Sprint store and ask them to do it for you.

    Finally got the update downloaded & installed. At first I was using Kies Lite and nothing would happen. Used the reg version of it and it downloaded in no time. I like how snappy fast it is compared to ICS. So I'll have to see if this update is good with regards to battery life. I'm a happy camper so far!

    Ok, so I updated via samsungs download tool yesterday and the installation went smoothly. However, now when I flip from page to page on the home screen the speech output reads the page numbering out loud. it is so annoying. The driving mode is off and no accessibly, like talk back, is selected. Any advice on turning this off?

    Mine also has the settings stopping issue. Pure stock and no rooting. I found that if I turn off Bluetooth it doesn't occur! Hope I can find a fix.

    Did you install camera shutter sound mute? If so, open the camera app and select setting scroll down to shuttersound and select 'off'. If you didn't install the fix, you're out of luck.

    No new colors but the led no longer changes to blue when it's fully charged. It just turns off.

    Got home last night (~2am) and attempted the Kies update...got about half way through and it locked up. closed everything out and restarted the phone and still at 4.0.4. It works fine and all so, no damage done. Tried it again this morning and there is no update available. In fact, on KIES, it won't even check the rev level of the phone. It skips over it. It won't even allow a manual update. Weird. I will wait until Monday to try again. Ideas?

    This is what worked for me. Kies was just not working, and after recent experiences at the local Sprint stores I wasn't about to take it to them. The simple downloader worked fine, the instructions were pretty fool-proof.

    Here are the direct links to the downloads, although I'm not sure why Samsung would bother with different links for the black and white versions. Just click on the Download tab to find the installer.

    If I'm coming from FK23, is it recommended I wipe data? I'd rather not do that again if I don't have too...
