It's just that by the Note II not even being on the list, that is implying to me that they haven't even started on it. Of course we all know nothing on the status of the update, but if it was close you think Rogers wouldn't hide it and would have it on the list. It gives no hope of the update coming in January.
It's unfortunate that we have to rely on root access since updates lag so far behind.
Samsung Canada just said they will bring the update BUT never said when. Here is for more info
EDIT - Samsung Canada said this to MobileSyrup " “The Note II Update will be available through FOTA in the next week. Exact availability will vary by carrier"
So no one in the end will know when exacly Rogers will release it. That is the ONLY info you will get.
