Samsung sent out an update last week for Rogers customers who own the Galaxy S2 LTE & it seems there were some issues. Well Samsung has been very quick to fix these issues & have just announced on their Facebook page that they are rolling out an update to fix these issues. If you updated your Galaxy S2 LTE already you’ll need to update over KIES according to Samsung, but if you haven’t updated to JB yet then you can now update with an OTA update that should be waiting for you.

Go to your settings – About device – Software update – Update & download the new update with all the bugs fixed.

Google Now widget RELEASED!!!!

image

Seems Google let it slip that a widget for Google Now is in the works, & could possibly be released in the near future.
The widget will make using Google Now even better as you will be able to see the info it acquires directly on your home screen and/or lockscreen.

It’s unclear yet if the widget will be available for all versions of Android able to run Google Now or just a select version. I’m sure it will be released through an update to Google Now from the Google PlayStore though.
Have you heard anything else about this widget, perhaps anyone receiving the 4.2.2 update on their Nexus device right now may have got this update as well?
Let us know in the comment section below.
**UPDATE**
Google Now just was updated through the Play store with Widget support!!!!
It seems to be for all devices that are running any version of Jelly Bean. So if you have Google Now already head to the Play store & update.
