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?

    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 ???

    1. applebite says:

      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

    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.

  4. Robben says:

    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…

  5. Rath41 says:

    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 -.-“

  6. Zac Tiesman says:

    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.

  7. Caleb says:

    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.

  8. freeky1 says:

    Stop crying people. You have not had to wait a long time. We should count our blessings that we have JB at all. My son has an 18 month old HTC Rezound that is still stuck on ICS 4.0.

  9. Jimmy Drew says:

    Note 2 with Verizon and waiting for the update but more waiting for the Note 3 or maybe the new HTC Phablet??? I love my Note 2 though and almost went for the S4 but I will wait for the next “Big Thing”….

    1. Tutu says:

      Well I’m on AT&T. All I’m waiting for is the international release. Once that hits, it’ll only take a couple of hours for the devs at XDA to port it to the AT&T version.

  10. Peter says:

    Still waiting for cricket galaxy s3. I just believe it will be updated after a month honestly i know these guys but still waiting and hopefully comes soon.

  11. Peter says:

    I truly believe that yes there is an update but will be released way later on this month. From all 100 comments i read so no one has successfully updated their devices. Ill just ignore and stop waiting til it comes. Samsung never promises =(

  12. sompari venkatesh says:

    These guys aren’t going to send the update so soon im getting irritated by waiting so im not going to check now. When it comes ill update it….. and SAMSUNG SUCKS…

  13. sompari venkatesh says:

    Ya im too much fed up im getting so irritated that I feel like throwing the phone but after all thats my money not samsung thats why I didn’t πŸ˜€

    1. SamsungCritic says:

      No ETA. But some sites says that it is finally arriving.. and that is the final call. Let’s just all wait patiently. God Bless us all.

      1. Edwin says:

        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

        1. 12mine03 says:

          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.

  14. Peter says:

    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.

    1. 12mine03 says:

      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.

  15. Adam Bublitz says:

    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.

  16. ryan amper says:

    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.

  17. irfan ali says:

    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.

  18. Vincent Keari says:

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

  19. Andrei says:

    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”

  20. Andrei says:

    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.

      1. Ali Asghar says:

        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.

  21. lily says:

    Omg guys!!! Check the software update!!!! There is one rolling outttt but mine says check later!!! Is it android 4.2 or? Anyone knows?

  22. LEFT says:

    I manually updated my S3 to jelly bean 4.2.2 leak version
    I9300XXUFME3 with odin
    and i am waiting for the official one i am very pleased from what i see

  23. Naviz says:

    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.

      1. viren sanyaja says:

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

  24. rszed says:

    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. ^^^

  25. sathu says:

    heard they r having issues in porting the new touchwiz from S4 so they r gonna delay a bit πŸ™ god i cant wait to get android 4.2.2 on my note 2 πŸ™ ….samsung please solve it asap!! πŸ™

  26. Nikola says:

    I had some update last night of 59 MBs on Note II, but my Android version remained the same (4.1.2). Maybe they updated kernel or something?!
    Does anyone know?

  27. Eddi22 says:

    I’m tire of waiting for the 4.2.2. We are the only one in the planet stock with the 4.1.2.
    If by the end of june there is no update well, byebye Samsung.

  28. Will Graham says:

    how long are we going to have to hear an announcement for 4.2.2 before it finally gets released??
    iPhone is starting to look a lot better…

  34. nicki thekid says:

    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.

  35. jeff b says:

    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.

  36. ddog says:

    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.

  37. BidDaddyLeekLeek says:

    Same thing here its July 1st and still no update on my Galaxy s3 I even tried to update my phone but there is no update available. Still

  38. eagleman45 says:
