Wanted to make a thread with this so everyone knows they have the option if they do not want to wait. Enjoy
You have to put it on your sim card. Create a folder called Download is what I did and put it in there. Then power off your phone completely . Then press the power, volume up button, and the home button and hold all 3 together. Your phone will boot into recovery mode. Then go to download update from SD card and select the file. It take about 10min but it works. I did it last night and I'm pumped. It's worth it trust me. The only I have problems with is loading my old s notes. But I deleted them and started new one and its fine. If you impatient like me, do it
There should be a phrase you have to type in to start the download. It pops up right in the middle of the screen. I think it has like a progressive ad on it
Yes I got that one, I downloaded. No matter how I tried to boot my phone with the zip, it just won't. My version is L900VPAL1, do you think that is the reason it does not work?
Did you put the file on your SD card? If not make a folder on your SD card called download put the zip in there the give it a try. Remember to hold the power, up volume, and home keys to go into manual mode
NOTE ABOUT KNOX AND SPRINT:
According to Samsung Customer Support, at this time, Sprint does not Support the integration of KNOX. The background data is there (you can see it in the device managers list, and in the Application Management views...) There is NO APPLICATION ICON at this time.
There are 2 things that could happen according to Samsung:
1. SPRINT Could issue the application LINK as a minor update - and this is ONLY a link that will appear in your Application Tray
2. SPRINT Could send out a notification to affected customers telling them that KNOX is now available for download int eh Google Play Store (or the Samsung App Store)
KNOX is about 150mb and integrates into the phones kernel, it is NOT just an application.
I share the disappointment while AT&T Customers have this already.. Sprint is lagging far behind the market as usual.
Did my update yesterday and I must say it was well worth the download!!! My phone is way faster and smoother now!! Now, about KNOX...................................
