Starting today, Verizon customers with the Galaxy Note II can start installing Android 4.1.2 on their devices. While the new build doesn’t bring things like Photosphere to the device, you still get a good amount of bug fixes, user interface improvements and they even remove some bloatware (bye bye Zappos). The changelog includes:

  • Download images via Enterprise Exchange email
  • Download ring back tones through VZTones version 5.1.2 preloaded application
  • Access downloaded languages on the Samsung keyboard
  • Use Multi Window support for more applications
  • (YouTube, Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon Kindle, Viewdini,  Google Maps and Talk)
  • Search or filter by Name in the dialer screen
  • The snooze option in the Alarm Clock app is set to “ON” by default
  • All Alarm Clock options are now viewable without the need to press the “more” button
  • Added a Notification Panel editing menu under Display Settings
  • Transfer content from your old device seamlessly with the Samsung Smart Switch application, now supported
  • Android OS updated to version 4.1.2 – including several Google security patches
  • Added support for IPV6 end-to end when using Mobile Hotspot application

To perform the upgrade, make sure your battery’s charged up, you’re using wifi and have no plans on using the phone for 30 to 45 minutes. There should be a notification pop up but if not, you can manually push the update in the device’s settings.
