I just purchased a galaxy note 2 from Rogers.  It is running Android 4.1.1.  The software is updated.   Does this phone have multi-view on it?  How does one run it 🙂

 

Thanks

Hello Paulgood

Samsung released the Note 2 with OUT the mutli-view on it. They said they will release another update with multi-view in it. This may take some time as when Samsung releases the update, Rogers will take the update & add their bloatware / own things into it & then test it & see if it works fine on the network. This may take weeks / months. Depending on the time frame they get.

So all in all, the next update you get, will have multi-view on it.

Hello JCBOY

You are welcome. Your phone is not defected lol. Its something Samsung will add with a later update.

The bloatware can ONLY been removed or freeze it by rooting the phone. Rogers add their boot screen ( if it has it), their Rogers apps & a few more Rogers things that are in the system it self.

If u go in settings-applications manager u can disable certain apps if u havent or wish not to root ur phone. Not a permanent delete but does free up ROM.

It does help but when you restart the phone, they will start working again. Not a good solution but its good if you do NOT restart your phone. Also remember, sometimes if you do that, it can affect the phone. Just a warning.

Hello yoeun905

Samsung / Rogers has not yet released any update on when the next update with this will be released. We need to wait until one of them says something.

I can wait for multi-window, but really want an Exynos bugfix

Hello all,

 

I can be patient about getting multi-window, I'm still getting used to how to get the most from the camera and stylus.

 

What DOES concern me is the critical Exynos bug that's bad enough that you can root your phone just using an app. There's also an app in the Play Store that enables you to check if you're vulnerable, and another app (sideloaded) that innoculates you (more info on the problem -- and a temporary fix -- is at XDA-Developers).

 

I note that there was a push OTA download for my Note2 this morning (day after Boxing Day) that claimed to update "Samsung Apps" but didn't give more detail than that. Does anyone have any more info on what was updated? Is this a prelude to a Mult-window patch, which has already been showing up for the same specific phone model -- the SGH-i317 -- at AT&T? Is it for the Exynos bug? Or just really updating some of the Samsung apps and nothing else?
