Sprint Galaxy Note 2 users can now update to Android 4.3, JellyBean.

The final version of the firmware began rolling out to the carrier's customers yesterday. It is available OTA (over the air) and will bring the firmware to version L900VPAMK4.

Android 4.3 brings a slew of changes to the Galaxy Note 2 such as TouchWiz refresh to match the theme from the Galaxy S4 and Note 3, a new lockscreen with multiple widgets, adjustable clock size and personal message, actionable notifications and daydream mode.

Users will also be able to move apps to the SD card and will have new screen modes such as Adapt Display and Professional Photo. TRIM support will be added to improve performance along with Galaxy Gear support, Driving Mode, voice commands and Samsung KNOX compatibility.

Sprint's software could encounter some problems as other carriers have has issues porting Android 4.3 with AT&T pulling the update from the Galaxy S4 this week.

The carrier together with Samsung is currently investigating some potential issues with the build. There is no word on when it will continue to roll out. It could just be a temporary delay.
