Samsung Galaxy Note 2 & S3 Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update incoming

Those of you that own the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or Galaxy S3 and waiting for the new Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update might like this news.

We have received many emails via sources (Not going to mention them) suggesting that Android JB 4.2.2 for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 is incoming and could come within the next 48 hours, we have emailed Samsung and other sources to verify this and have not had any replies just yet.

We are hoping this is all true, and if it is then you could see the new Jelly Bean 4.2.2 on these two smartphones within the next few days. Back on May 10th SamMobile tweeted news about the update (See below), since then no one has verified release dates.

Now if we go on the June release like SamMobile tweeted and the emails we received then it looks promising that in June owners of these devices will see the update, so here is hoping the 48 hour window is correct.

We also heard that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and S3 would in time get Android Key Lime Pie, but we believe the next update will be 4.2.2 and then will stop at that. It will only be new smartphones such as the Galaxy S4 and future devices getting the KLP treatment, we might be wrong.

Please let us know if you own the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or the Galaxy S3 and waiting on the Android 4.2.2 JB update?

  • Edgar Concepcion Delovino

    Im dying waiting for this update…… I’d love to have those camera features from S4 to my Note 2

  • Henry

    Yes I am. I check up on it everyday. Would love to have my phone updated to 4.2.2 for the big fixes and all the jelly bean features

  • nick

    Good News : Update is very close : the only bug on my note 2 is that every 3 days needs a restart to fix the stuck autorate feature. I hope thats solved, waiting for more fetures like 360 camera.

    Bad News(Rumour): Hope thats false: ”but we believe the next update will be 4.2.2 and then will stop at that. ” No KEy Lime Pie ???

    • Edgar Concepcion Delovino

      lets just be happy for this update, we will be blessed for some of the S4 goodies :-D

    • mikexbl

      S3 and Note II have been confirmed by Samsung that they will get update to key lime pie

    • applebite

      That is bullshit this site even reported that note 2 and s3 were getting key lime pie unless they are just trying to get some quick page views again

  • Aditya

    I WANT THE UPDATE BECAUSE I WANT FIXES, SPEED IMPROVEMENTS AND ALSO THE NEW EXCITING FEATURES THAT ARE AVAILABLE IN S4 TO BE IN MY NOTE 2

  • Garet

    Youre wrong. Saumsung updates almost all of its old phones to the newest software It can run. For example the s2 came out with android 2.3 and is now at 4.1. At least the note 2 will get it because its definately powerful enough to run it.

  • Richard Yarrell

    Looking forward to it.

  • Praneet Tulshyan

    I own a note 2 and have been eagerly awaiting the 4.2 update for my device! Especially for the photosphere!

  • Feenee

    Mine (S3) is updating now…. 53% and no idea which update it is yet!

  • Robben

    My S3 started updating about 10 minutes ago :)

  • nick harrison

    Robben what country are you in and is it 4.2.2

  • Ghena<3

    I wish we could receive the Jelly Bean 4.2.2 and then the Key Lime Pie update :) <3

  • abhiram

    im counting every sec from past three months for this update

  • Robben

    Well, the update just finished and I’m VERY disappointed… It was a 47mb update and my Galaxy S3 is still on 4.1.2. Must only be an update to fix bugs and issues…

    • Robben

      I’m in the UK btw

      • Gregory Bradley

        I loved your 88th minute goal in the Champions League final dude

  • Rath41

    I thought im using the complete 4.2.2 version, never thought its only a beta version when it released on 20+ May 2013, no photosphere the one i really waiting for.. now me is desperately waiting for this android version.. searching google for this like every 2 hours -.-”

    • Robben

      You stole my name!!!

      • Robben

        Sorry, your post came up with my name until I refreshed the page haha

  • Blarph

    I just got an update from Verizon. It was 129.1 mb but didnt give a description. It is in the middle of updating now.

    • compiled

      Same. It’s updating…

      • compiled

        It wasn’t 4.2.2 (I figured because of the small-ish size), but it was a pretty decent update regardless.

  • ben frost

    Long overdue I say I have a note 2 and would love to have
    Some of the s4 features

  • Blarph

    I don’t know what my update was. It is still android 4.1.2. All I see that changed are additional apps.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jwidd Josef Widdifield

      Same. I think that might have been an update to get ready for the 4.2.2. But that’s just my opinion. It added a weird gallery setup and multi-windows. Press and hold the back button.

  • Barry Erickson

    Note 2 here, always waiting for a new update. Releases always come too slowly.

  • Gus van der Walt

    I have the note 2 and am seriously waiting for the upgrade.

  • sam

  • Tahmid Ali

    Yeah, if it does come out then s3 and note users might get s4 features. I got s3 by the way.

  • Zac Tiesman

    What you all are forgetting is that even though Samsung pushes out the update, its up to the carriers to push it to the customers. Dont expect it for a month or two.

  • 12mine03

    still Waiting for Update.. S3 owner here.. still no update here in Philippines.. can’t waaaaiit… XD

  • Don Numa

    Can somebody tell me what KLP means? Please.

    • mike white

      Key Lime Pie will be Android release 4.3 or 5.0. The actual dot release number is currently unknown.

  • Carolinakid

    S3 on ATT hopes that it comes here but then again its ATT so i wouldn’t hold my breath

  • Caleb

    Got an S3…holding my breath. Hopefully, CM will grab KLP when it comes out and I’ll be able to flash that too. The XDA version of the leaked 4.2 ROM is already available.

      • Edwin

        I don’t think it’s releasing. It’s more than 48 hours now. Disappointed again. I thought that I would have a new firmware to play with during my holidays. Sadly, no

        • 12mine03

          yaah.. same here.. they’re just keeping us waiting and waiting. you’re right. it’s almost more than 48 hours already, and nothing is released… nothing to update.

        • lily

          Yup, still nothing…guess it was just bs

  • chez

    chezstill waiting!!!!can,t wait

  • Peter

    I keep coming here every single time to see if anyone has updated to jellybean 4.2.2 sadly, no one have. Its true, its been more than 48 hours and I am getting very disappointed by Samsung. Why can’t they just tell us when will be released instead the having us waiting like crazy.

    • 12mine03

      You’re right dude. All that we want is to know the ETA for the update. Instead of having us wait to death. We all here are very much disappointed. They’re just keep on telling us that it’s coming. Blah blah blah.

  • ivan

    Oh no oh no.. it’s coming..

    • 12mine03

      I don’t think so…

  • stephos

  • Mohd Ridhwan

    My uncle asus nexus 7 already have jb 4.2.2 last week..

  • Adam Bublitz

    See I happen to think this won’t be the last update for the note 2. It’s hardly had any updates anyways. Maybe for the s3 this will be it, but it seems samsung is trying to update all its phones as long as they can.

  • ryan amper

    Its a fake guys dont believe this kind of rumors..my note 2 just updated last june 1 but nothings change its still JB 4.1.2..so dont put a lot of hope.

  • irfan ali

    Im tired of wating. samsung sucks…

  • irfan ali

    If you have the Samsung Galaxy S3 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and you have been patiently waiting for the update to Jelly Bean 4.2.2, this is your lucky day as we have news.

    We had had some emails from some sources, not mentioning any names, that says that Jelly Bean 4.2.2 is heading to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the update could be here in just 48 hours. We did ask Samsung and other sources for clarification, but are waiting to hear back.

    If this is true then the two devices could have the update within the next couple of days. On 10th May SamMobile posted a Tweet about the update, however no one has verified the release dates.

    SamMobile Tweeted about a June release for the update and so it is looking promising, thanks to the recent emails, that owners of the handsets will get the update very soon. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the 48 hour window turns out to be true.

    We also heard that owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 along with the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be getting updated to Key Lime Pie. However we think that this will not happen and the last update will be to 4.2.2. We think that it will be just the newer devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 that will get the Key Lime Pie update, however we could be wrong.

    • shadrick

      When did the 48 hours start?

  • somparivenkatesh

    How many 48 hours will Samsung take to update I’m not gonna believe our. I think it’s all fake

    SAMSUNG SUCKS. .

  • Vincent Keari

    Been waiting for it long enough every time i check the internet the only thing i get is ” It’s coming soon” s3 owner

  • Andrei

    Here it is an official samsung mobile reply to my question “Google has no planned upgrades for other devices yet, however Samsung is considering upgrading Samsung devices to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Specific upgrade plans will be communicated separately. Samsung will stay committed to responsibility for its customers as much as possible.
    From Samsung Mobile”

  • IBot

    So Samsung is still considering???? This means the update is not ready yet????

  • Andrei

    Yes Samsung may be working on an update or may not..Don`t get all hyped up after you read news on the web, or leaks from insiders.The update may come or not..I am thinking that they have a very poor customer support, even though they focus so much on marketing and advertisements they lack common sense or they don`t want to invest in customer support. You will never know anything for sure with samsung, great gadgets, but poor customer support.

  • Allen LLeshi

    • Andrzej Muzaj

      It is next week… and still no update ;)

      • Ali Asghar

        well 4.1.2 is very stable, even after initial releases of 4.2.2, we should wait, because we know those contains bugs, also there recent history like sudden death syndromes and so, it’s very risky to update phones initialy.

      • Honey

        LOL

      • Allen LLeshi

        well I told u that update is coming this month so be ready … it is coming

    • Ali Asghar

  • kooldudee

    Guys which is the best best rom for note 2

  • lily

    I got a firmware XXEME2, but not sure what has changed :s anyone?

  • Andrzej Muzaj

    Still waiting…

  • Jamie Walton

    Is the update worth having, or is it not noticable?

  • Naviz

    The reason I dont choose Samsung ANYMORE is because they cant have all user to have up-to-date firmware. Just like only brand new phone will have the latest firmware example like Note2 and Galaxy S4 which S4 would be latest but Note2 doesnt have its firmware. Not like iOS, all iOS device can always up to date with a totally new firmware even iPhone 2G,3G and others.

    • Albert

      Have you ever owned a Iphone?? If you did, you wouldn’t have said that.

      • viren sanyaja

        ur right. sometimes some cellphones have outdated hardware which is not suitable for new os. and sometimes its due to de market strategy too.

  • rszed

    I don’t think they will release the update soon. they’re targeting sales for S4 so, they won’t let it happen. So we better exchange our s3 to s4. heh. ^^^

    • Iceman

      I agree…. but they should release 4.2.2 for note2 and s3 soon… waitin badly :(

  • Jehan Kateli

    I have the S3 mini and am eagerly waiting for 4.2…

  • SL Kolla

    ko yakoo taamath nane..

  • sathu

  • Nikola

  • shadrick

    Just updated my Sg3 to newest version 4.1.2 June 27 2013. Thought it would be 4.2.2. Guess not:(

  • nicki thekid

    Im trying to hold out for the update…and get it the right way but custom roms are calling my name. It shouldn’t take this long..Verizon and sprint got the update. Att holding out is only going to result in a loss of money on their part, anybody with a s3. Isnt due for a upgrade just yet.

  • jeff b

    anyone know what’s coming with the 4.2.2 update. Mine seems to be running perfect without it. Any extras will be added. I have to troll a little sorry those of you bashing Samsung and saying you are going to apple have fun. I’m not a big iPhone fan. BTW some of us here could do with some English lessons. The Note 2 is my favorite phone of all time so far. It s super fast and smooth. Battery is excellent. its the perfect size since they slimmed it slightly. and the display and camera are amazing. Samsung didn’t like the way touch wiz was performing and as soon as its ready it will be released.

    Waiting on the android galaxy note 2 update 2.2.2. I’d say galaxy note two is better than every other phone because first it has a massive screen and has the s pen and has a battery life that lasts longer than any other phone. So I’m looking forward to this update and many others down the road.
