For those people who we're not able to get the multitasking feature even they updated their firmware is to download a new firmware on and odin.. At first I was hesitant to change my firmware coz my note 2's baseband is GT-N7100XXALIH and the available firmware on the sammobile is GT-N7100XXALJ1(France) but irregardless of the firmware type it is okay to install it on your phone as long as the firmware starts with *GT-N7100******..

The firmware is 1gb in size so you have to be patient when download. But after you install you'll be able to enjoy the multitasking feature. Good luck.

I'm from Indonesia. The Note 2 just launched today. Does anybody know when the update will be available in Indonesia? The software uodate keep saying: Access to software updated service is available to users in which they request it. Try again later.
