The Galaxy Note 8 from AT&T has finally released an update to KitKat. Since 2013, the Galaxy Note 8 has been running Android Jelly Bean, and finally the device will be updated to Android KitKat. It’s a major update, and you will see a lot of changes. Of course, most of them are hidden below the TouchWiz customization, but the improvement is clear.
The new version will be Android 4.4.2, with the build number JZO54K.I467UCANI2. There is a list of the fixed issues and changes detailed in the Samsung website:
Android OS Version upgraded to 4.4.2 with all Security patches
Beat Music app pre-loaded
GMS apps update (GMS 4.4.2_r2)
Multi User Mode
The update will be rolling out to the AT&T owners gradually, but you can always check manually if the download is available. To do so, you just have to access to App, Settings, General, and About device. Once there, you can search for software updates.
Before starting the download, be sure to be connected to a Wi-Fi network if you don’t want to spend all your data plan. Once you are ready to start the installation, check the battery (should be almost fully charged before starting the update).
After rebooting the device, you can check the current version. To verify the installation, go to “About device” option and you should see:
Android version: 4.4.2
Build number: JZO54K.I467UCANI2
