    Hey soloberry found the link and the post with teh zip file but is the correct zip. It states it the deuggered.zip and I've got it on my phone just didnt' want to run it and brick on accident. Here's the link and the post I believe you where referring to. AT&T to release OTA update on Dec. 27 to enable Multi-Window on Note II - Page 35 - xda-developers

    So why don't you buy unbranded international phones? I disable tons of bloatware and never root. I would love pure Android, but I buy the AT&T or whatever carrier, version because I don't want to spend the money. That means they have the final say so on when their update is pushed. That part goes with getting the discount for the phone. If that part is too much for some , they should pay the big bucks price for the unbranded, unlocked phone, IMO.
    This makes way too much sense

    Nevermind, that's in the boot mode-I do not know.
    Reboot the phone into download mode, (with phone off, hold vol down, power and the center button; at the option screen, press volume up). If it did not raise the flash counter, it will read:

    Custom binary download: NO
    Current Binary: Samsung Official
    System Status: Official

    If it says anything else, your warranty is out the window

    Yes. Also the phone should connect to AT&T servers for updates on first boot. You should see a red and blue arrows in the lefthand corner of the notification bar.

    That is not the right file dcjr99. Also, AT&T installer app is what controls the delivery of the update. The moving clock will no longer get you the update as the server through that app detected too many pings on it. Just wait for time to countdown. I have 80 hours left.

    Someone I know factory reset the phone and it DID NOT change the update. The ATandT updater app is through a server.

    I wish it were that easy that resetting the phone would clear the timer. Everyone would have tried it by now then.

    Tezz, this update isn't being pushed to phones, which in my opinion, it should have been and we would not all be on this thread. You have to wait for countdown timer (under check for updates) to countdown to zero, then press check for updates again.

    I guess I'll be patiently waiting for a month this time since I can't find the update file anywhere.

    Because the device is totally unusable without multiwindow...
    You are so wrong. My original Galaxy Note did not have it. I paid out of pocket for that phone and it was great! I do feel that for the money I paid for the Note 2, though, I am entitled to have what is made for it. I also pay AT&T more than I paid Sprint and on Sprint I had "unlimited everything" for a not too exorbitant price. They never wanted to "control" updates either.

    Go to Settings, About Device on the bottom of the list, then click on first option. check for software updates. There is a countdown timer there, that if no update is available, a timer will tell you when you can check again.

    But you bought the phone WITHOUT the feature. If you seriously bought a phone for one feature, salesmen must love you. Still in my OG Note, and we're supposedly getting it too. Do I need it? No. I doubt I'll even use it and honestly doubt you will after the first week as well.

    Changing the date and time is what pushed your countdown timer to outrageous numbers to begin with. Wait for timer to count down, then hit check for updates again, but not until then.

    That is not up to you to decide what I will and won't use. ATandT should have pushed the update to phones and we would all not be discussing this now. Please do not speak for me. I had the original Galaxy Note also, and I did not know they were going to add this feature to the Galaxy Note 2, as only Europe had it on their phones. If they chose to add it, I am entitled to it, as is everyone here.

    But you did buy a phone that did NOT have said feature at launch, correct?

    Also, assumptions are just that, assumptions. Going to assume multiwindow will not or is not a life changing feature. Truth hurts.

    Yes, and when a NEW FEATURE comes out, I am entitled to it in a timely fashion. Please do NOT speak for me. Doing so is presumptuous. You are happy with things as they are, and that is your prerogative. This discussion is at an end as it serves no purpose.
