    Hi, last sat there was a smallish 4.3 update, i done it via kies and there was no change log saying what was fixed / added, does anyone happen to know?

    I'm in the uk.

    No idea, but since the update my battery life is shockingly bad.

    I've had really bad lag since the latest 4.3 update. Really slow it's very frustrating. Don't want to factory reset..no other option seems to be out there though unless they fix it soon. Not good.

    I've got my AT&T updater frozen, so I'm on the sidelines but curious about this mysterious second mini-update.

    Does your software still say MK2?
    Did anything change in the baseband, kernel or build number?
    (Attached is mine - based on original at&t 4.3 update with no 2nd update).

    Thanks. I lost track of the forum scope... I thought (incorrectly) this was an AT&T forum.
