US Cellular is issuing an update to their variant of Samsung's Galaxy Note II, bringing the baseband version up to R950VXALL1. The headline feature with this update, as may be expected, is multi-window support. That's not all the R950VXALL1 package brings, though.

The update, besides evidently bringing the device up to Android "4.1.4" Jelly Bean (did you mean to say "4.1.2" there, USC?), brings an armload of bug fixes, from a "Burst Mode" camera fix to occasional toggling between 3G and 1X, to minor UI changes including the replacement of the notification shade's "sync" button with a multi-window shortcut and a makeover for the phone's Sound icon, switching from gray to green. Here's a look at the full change log.


If you own a US Cellular-connected Galaxy Note II, you know the drill – head into Settings and simply tap About Device > Software Update and follow the prompts.

    4.1.4? What? There is no 4.1.4...

    4.1.4 is for the updates the carriers make themselves

    Thank you, Liam & your anonymous contributor! I've had this notification on my phone since early yesterday morn' but didn't want to fire it off 'til I knew a bit more about it. Was very surprised and frustrated as the hours passed and I couldn't find any info. on it anywhere -- not even so much as a casual mention that an update was happening. Guess I must've been among the first to get the OTA notification (a nice change from my usual luck) and that this world isn't quite as *instant* in its information dissemination as I'd thought. =P Great detail here though and I'm now quite excited to pull the trigger! Thanks again .......

      It's really USC's fault for failing to communicate this information to the public - they updated the download page but had 0 info. T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint all have official places where updates are posted, and so does USC, except it doesn't make a habit out of actually including what's new. AT&T doesn't even have a place (shocker!).
