Upgrade to Android 4.3 has been rolled out for Samsung galaxy note N7100 and its a stable version with no problems in it. No data deleted during the upgrade and can be only done through Kies. Don't worry go ahead and get it upgraded.
To all :
Click 'add city' option in clock --> world clock. Have you tried?.
It is displaying 'unfortunately clock has stopped' for me (after updating to JB 4.3.
4.3 is a piece of shit I think.
I am facing this issue even after restarting the phone. I do not know what to do. Any solution?.
murali from india, 19 Nov 2013should we take back up our phone before update as it'll format our phone? how about downloadi... moreNo need to take backup. Nothing will be erased. But in case if mobile switches off (low battery, loose battery - battery cover open etc) during updation, then it will corrupt the phone.
So if you are concerned about the data, you can take the backup of SMS, call logs, phone memory apps and settings in KIES. No need videos and all (if they are stored in memory card).
The update is 700 MB. The download time will vary depending on the internet connection speed.
Do not update now. Because I am getting error when adding city to the world clock (Clock --> World clock --> add city).
Officially 4.3 is not provided for India time being... ( which I got this news from authorized Samsung service center) but the leaked version available for a sum of Indian rupees 500...my friends using this updates... But I am waiting for official one.. ..
Lag increased significantly after updating to android 4.3. stuttering in app drawer and apps taking longer time to open

Hi frnds! Just updated my note 2 android 4.3 and my phone is very smooth now and also love the changes. Hurray..
I just updated my note 2 to android 4.3 yesterday. Till now performance is better than before but heptic feedback not working when I press soft keys even after vibration intensity is set to max.
[deleted post]I think that from India first. My Note II (Indonesia region) is the latest version on Jelly Bean 4.1.2. For me 4.1.2 is good, update to the newest version doesn't always better than before.
SUDHAKAR, 19 Nov 2013Go to settings --> about device --> check for update. Better update via WiFi.should we take back up our phone before update as it'll format our phone? how about downloading via kies, should we connect our phone to system to update via kies?
