My device (India) got a massive, useless 1.2 GB unknown update via KIES 3.xx.xxx on 28th December 2013. It took 8.5 hours to download on a 512 Kbps stable broadband.
It got installed on 29th Dec 2013 at 02:30 AM Indian time.
Before my device got 14 MB unknown update (after upgrading to 4.3).
So after getting 4.3 :
1) 14 MB update
2) 1.2 GB massive useless update.
Battery has improved only a bit. Looks like samsung has gone mad providing 1.2 GB update.

My Note II N7100 running in Jelly Bean 4.3, so far is good, no bad problems. About ePSXe, I had reinstalled it, use version 1.9.11, works very good.
Is it possible to downgrade from 4.3 to 4.1.3? I am very unhappy with 4.3 and I hate my phone now. Sometime change is NOT good.
Should I buy note2? I heard that recent new note2 are not good as first times note2. What should I do? Is anyone got note2 recently?
