Bought a N7100 a month ago after hearing that it would be updated to 4.3 & then to kitkat. It came with 4.1.2 (XXDMG1 updated). Today I updated to 4.3 through Kies. I first did a full back-up and then a Factory Reset. However, I continuously got "failed to run firmware upgrade.unknown error occurred" (about 10 attempts). After some trial & error I narrowed down the problem to my USB data card. On ejecting my USB data card & USB hard disk, I could successfully update to 4.3. Took about 2-1/2 hrs to complete. Restored everything (except apps) and now my Note II is purring along.

AnonD-75353, 24 Nov 2013How you get to know USB was your charging status? hiw did you changed it?First time I used it, 10 days ago. Sometimes I see Settings, Battery, status charging (USB). When I knew it took 7 hours or more, I had thought that might be something wrong. I used Galaxy Ace 2 previously maximum 4 hours charging if I used it when got charged. I searched on internet (on Kaskus Indonesia) there was user experienced the same and he concluded the problem was the USB cable. I installed Galaxy Charging Current app on the link given. When charging I saw by opening that app, it showed current 460. I touched refresh in that app nothing happened, I exited from that app, unplug the USB cable and plug it again, open that app, it ha shown 1800 (maximum). Then I did exit the app again, check Settings, Battery, status charging (AC). Later I will see it again when I charge my Note II if it will stay in AC status charging or back to USB status charging.

S . SUDHAKAR, 24 Nov 2013Thanks for the decent reply. Do you have any idea about kitkat 4.4 arrival for N7100 after Jan... more4.4 will be available in Jan for S4 and Note3, S3 and Note 2 will be getting this in Mar or April and may this is not cheap publicity, it is called development for which Google is spending billions of dollars so you are not in a position of suggesting to Google what it do. Bugs are normal. OS updates are necessary as per market requirement. I think you know what happened to Symbian once they decided not to give support, they kill the OS.

After this issue, I have read the developer notes of that software in play store. It is mentioned that the software will not function properly in 4.3 because of restrictions in the o/s side.

I am usiing iball (India based company I think) 4400 mAh battery as external battery. Buy only from branded companies. Do not keep your mobile and external battery in a pocket or closed tight area when charging. Because both batteries (mobile internal and the external one) will heat up when kept in air tight environment.

Google must provide regular updates within the same o/s version instead of always releasing new o/s version (I think they are releasing new o/s to create publicity in a cheap manner) with bugs.
We all are anxious about 4.3 version and we did not force Samsung to release it in a hurry. Microsoft provides updates for desktop o/s components via Windows update. Google should also follow this method in mobile o/s.
