US Cellular’s Samsung Galaxy Note II gets the multi-window upgrade
US Cellular has joined the rest of the Galaxy Note II toting carriers and released an update to Android 4.1.1 (baseband R950VXALL1) which brings multi-window functionality along with a number of other changes.

The multi-window function is a distinguishing feature, and comes in super handy on the 5.5-inch phablet. The update also brings some bug fixes including solving an apparent problem with the burst-mode in the camera, which caused random black images. The Search feature has been fixed within the My Files application also.

The update is available over-the-air, just go to Settings >> About Device >> Software update.

Here is a rundown of the change log:

  • Split screen functionality is supported (Multi-Window)
  • The following U.S. Cellular pre-loads are included:
  • City ID – v. 1.25.1
