Update: Samsung has shared a little bit more information on this update. The approximate file size is 246.5 MB. Click on the image below to read up on the details.


The time has come for Verizon Galaxy Note II owners to experience the new features that Google rolled out in the fall of 2013, as the Big Red is pushing out an OTA update to the large handset that has the goods in tow. The software version goes by the elegant name of KOT49H.I605VRUFND7.


This update introduces the tweaks that come packed away as part of Android 4.4, such as those lovely white icons, but it's joined by some Samsung-exclusive related additions as well. Knox 2.0 is included, and people eyeing the Gear 2 can now pair the smartwatch with their phone.

Some apps have been removed, others have been added, and a few bugs have been squashed. You know the routine by now. Hit up Verizon's support page below to view some of changes you can expect.

    Whooooooa are they first in the US on this one?? Pretty sure they are. Still waiting on T-Mobile! But I'm on the version that rolled out in Europe right now. Works great. Not too much change.

  • Scott Breitbach

    Anyone who received the update know if Google Wallet Tap & Pay is working?

    • Andrew

      Been running the official release for almost a month now (It leaked that long ago). Yes it works like a champ!

      • Scott Breitbach

        Thanks Andrew. I was just wondering because I've tried a few different (non-TW) 4.4 ROMs and none of them have worked for me. :/

        • Andrew

          Thats because 4.4.2 doesn't carry the correct libs for our NFC chip. Samsung included them in this 4.4.2 build. 4.4.3 was supposed to add support, but I haven't flashed CM11 4.4.3 build yet to test it out.

          • Andrew Chandler

            I'm on the 4.4.3-based CM11 nightlies with my i605, and it's not functioning. If the update brings in the functionality, then CM hasn't merged it yet apparently..

          • Andrew

            Thanks, good to know. There was supposed to be support in 4.4.3, but I wasn't sure if it made it to the final build.

    Couldn't Gear 2 people pair their watch with their Jellybean Note 2? I have a Verizon Note 3 and have a Gear 2 Neo that paired fine before receiving Kit Kat.

    • Andrew

      Yes, pretty sure it did. I don't own a Gear, but I'm pretty sure when they came out it worked with Note II out of the box.

  • TheFirstUniverseKing

    WOW. Was not expecting this update so soon.

  • James Sloat

    Update now live in Los Angeles.

  • G1031L

    the gear did not work with the n2 at launch. only devices running 4.3+ (which was only the s4 at launch).

    the gear 2 requires 4.3 (bluetooth 4.0le) as well and was available with the note 2 at launch since the n2 had already received the 4.3 update

  • Alicia

    Battery doesn't last as long as before the update and a few little things that I highly dislike. If I had a choice I would not have done it and would go back.
