Android 4.3 test firmware leaks for Galaxy Note II

Android 4.3 test firmware leaks for Galaxy Note II
As we know, Samsung is working hard on getting the Android 4.3 updates ready for its devices, not so much because it wants its users to have the newest available software, but rather so it can have more devices that are compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Gear, which requires the Bluetooth 4.0 LE updates that are in Android 4.3.

It looks like the update for the Samsung Galaxy Note II could be pretty close to ready, because a test version of the software has leaked out. The Android 4.3 firmware, version N7100XXUEMJ5 is a test version of the software that is expected to be ready to go soon. The Samsung Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy S III are planned to get the Android 4.3 update at some point in November. 

In addition to adding in the various features that exist in Android 4.3, this test firmware brings some UI elements and features that you would see in the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the Galaxy Note 3, including the tabbed settings UI, as well as Samsung Knox and Samsung Wallet. As always, this test firmware is only for those of you who know what you're doing. Don't mess with it if you don't know how to deal with download mode or recovery.

A company with so many phones out there yet they try so hard to update most of their phones. This company really means business. No wonder their on top. Keep it up. Samsung customer care in Ghana my country is top notch. I returned my note 3 today after almost 2 weeks of use just because I wanted a white instead of black. I gave them some fake reasons about my phone being faulty. They just gave me a brand new one .No hustle at all.

Agree they are quite responsive to their customer. When i notice my gear watch has not display seconds require for pulse taking i wrote to them. They did reply instructing me on the alternative method like using the build in timer, works but not ideal. Two weeks later a watch face with seconds appear on their gear store along will a few other new watch faces. I using that watch face /w seconds displayed and are truly impress with their feedback system.

Compare this with "worthless" support that SONY offers where no one knows what to do with ZL IR not working. On their message boards they have agreed but nothing after that. When it comes to support all they do is play "passing the buck" game.

Tried on My At&t Galaxy Note 2. Everything is working! New Camera, Air View, Galaxy Gear, LTE, and Wifi. I don't know what is not working yet as I only had for 1 day 11/2/13...

I have my install and trial on youtube and the user name is vrockly if you search it you actually see my trials and how I installed and rooted it on 4.3...
