    That's because you probably changed your build.prop to be a nexus since it says it in your SIG. I had the same problem originally.

    I got the update last night. Noticed battery drop faster than normal. Normally I got noon time at around 90% with some usage. It's 10am and I am at 83% with minimal usage. Gonna download CPU spy and see how the rest of the day goes.

    I'm not having battery issues, but now Google Play Store crashes every time I try to use it. I tried clearing data and restarting, but it still does the same thing. And I get this message "Unfortunately, the process com.google.process.gapps has stopped."

    I only did the update last night and I'm still at 82% from 100% 8 hours ago. Light usage.

    I have noticed one odd thing and I've rebooted the phone twice to try and clear this up. The GPS indicator comes on randomly and it never did this before the update. Has anyone else noticed this? It doesn't stay on long but wtf? XD
    Don't worry, it's just sending your location back to the NSA. They're planning a surprise party for you and want to know when you're out of your house so they can go in and set up. Oops, the guys in the black suits just told me I wasn't supposed to tell you that..

    But seriously, it could be Google Now. I can't remember where I saw it, but there's a setting where it will check your location every now and then to determine if you're at home, work, etc. so it can give you info on your next commute.

    A few days ago, I read in another thread about increased battery drain and I wonder if does have something to do with GPS. Mine is always turned off (only turn on as needed) and haven't noticed any increased battery drain. I also don't use Google Now and have it disabled as well.

    I deferred the update but I have noticed increased battery drain over the past couple of days. I downloaded the battery stats plus app and it shows Lcdtest having a partial wake usage time that equals the time the Note 2 has been on. I don't know if this is abnormal though as I just downloaded the app a little while ago. Any one else experiencing the same with Lcdtest?

    Edit... I also downloaded CPU spy and the Note is not going into Deep Sleep either.

    I haven't downloaded that app but have also deferred the update (and hopefully prevented it by freezing SDM 1.0) and I have not noticed any difference in battery use which remains phenomenally good.

    Galaxy note 2 is SIM unlocked so under the new law if they sent an update to brick our phones as you suggest VZW would have a major class lawsuit on their hands. Verizon is greedy not stupid(arguably)

    As far as I know this update didn't set it to 4.1.2. I know my phone is still at 4.1.1

    I dropped from 28-30 hours to 16 after the 4.1.2 update.... checked for a couple of days.
    then I noticed that my GPS was on all the time in the notification area, - and I turned it off - can't remember how it was set before. I also turned the phone off and charged with the original charger all night, as someone mentioned that to be the most effective.

    After 14 hours of uptime, - I was expecting battery state to be 'low', - but it's actually at 60%...

    I'll bet the GPS turned off made a difference for me here. Please check.

    Have rebooted after 4.1.2 but before the above, - have checked with cpuspy and lowered my 'sync' settings all over without getting my standby time back. until I turned off the gps.

    I don't believe VZ has released, or even will release 4.1.2. We did get an update in January, but I believe it was a patch for the vulnerability.

    I did noticed the battery drain issue after the update. This is a known issue for galaxy s3 with no apparent fix. Turning off the phone and removing the battery for 10 minutes is a temporary fix. Or rebooting the phone regularly.

    Turn off all the location based Google now cards. It can be done in the Google now settings. Before that Google maps on my phone would keep my phone awake for 1 hour and 20 minutes on average but know it's down to about 18-20 minutes. My battery has seen a significant improvement.

    I read that Jellybean 4.1.2 is released for Note 2 in South Korea for the N7100. I have the .md5 for 4.1.2 downloaded and ready to flash with Odin, but I don't know if this would be compatible with Verizon's SCH-I605. Anyone have any info?

    This thread title is misleading as the update the OP is referring to is NOT 4.1.2, but just a patch for the Exynos exploit. But to answer your question, no the release for the N7100 is not compatible with the Verizon Note 2. Note the different model numbers. For Verizon, the software release should state specifically that it's for model SCH-I605.
