    I just want to add to my post that those who's home button is unlocking to the home screen is actually a Widgetlocker issue that should be addressed in a future update. So I'm sticking with the stock lockscreen for now, try it out on JB.

    For me my phone got kinda laggy... As before there was no lag. Google play music messes up alot now. Random apps seem to lag a bit. text message tone cuts off short now.

    I had the same issue with the text notification. You need to delete some text messages. I deleted some and my notification works perfectly now

    I used to be able to wake the phone up by pressing the home button. I have the lock set to 2 minutes so if I get a text before it locks I used to be able to hit the home button and be where I left off, now it takes me directly to my home screen. It is very annoying. Is this an option that I just can't find or am I doomed to having to hit the lock button to wake up the phone.

    Other than that I love the update. Google Now is has made the phone amazing, I feel like this is the phone I was expecting to get when I bought it months ago. I love it again.

    I noticed that I can't

    I noticed that I cant delete pages. When you try it says Unfortunately, TouchWiz home has stopped. Everything else seems good but this makes me think the update was not tested.

    I don't have that issue at all. Was able to delete pages with no issue at all.

    What I find weird is as I am typing the letters appear in the right time but the buttons have a major delay in the showing of them being pressed... They appear to be pressed well after the letter appears on the screen.

    Will do. I bet it takes another update. Already removed battery and everything I know to do.

    Got it. Go to developer options. Put animation scale to a number (1 or whatever)...change it from what it is now. Then go back and try it.

    Change your animation scale back after if it works if you want.
