Android 4.3 Pushed to Sprint Galaxy Note II, Update Captured
A few days ago, we covered the release of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for the international Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE N7105. We immediately began to wonder when 4.3 update would make its way to some of the more popular carrier-branded variants.
Now, it appears as if that time is here, as Sprint has begun the Android 4.3 rollout for the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note II. As this appears to be a staged rollout, not everyone will see the update when checking manually. However, XDA Senior Member npesa92 was gracious enough to pull the update from his /cache folder and upload it for everyone to enjoy.
The update comes in at version LP900VPUBMK4, and it is in the form of an incremental update from the previous LP900VPUBMC2 build. And as you may gather from the build version, this will only work on the Sprint-branded Galaxy Note II (SPH-L900). And naturally, you must be on stock firmware and recovery to flash this.
To get in on the update action a bit early, head over to the original thread.
