Attention AT&T Galaxy Note Users
On 9 May 2013, I launched Kies to backup by Galaxy® Note™ (i717).
To my astonishment, there was the update to Android v4.1.2,
I finished the backup. Applied the update without a hitch.
Now I'm enjoying my "Jelly Bean" powered Note.
When I said, "without a hitch," I was speaking of the update install itself. Obviously, most of my settings were changed because they did not apply to the new 'droid edition. It was a surprise that my use of SwiftKey™ survived.
All of my downloaded apps were still available from the applications pages, but I had to replace them onto home screens. Under J/B, you get a new page when you launch the applications pages. The pages have tabs for "Applications" and "Widgets." Your existing apps and widgets to display their new features enabled under J/B. You can also put widgets on your lock screen.
You can read about J/B details elsewhere along with "what is new" descriptions. I mainly wanted to spread the word that AT&T finally did what should have happened in January or sooner.
