Well, @rommel KitKat update for Note II is been rolling out all over, I can tell you the exact day it is going to arrive for your device but I'll say soon you are going to have the KitKat update.

I know that the most widely used operating system is Windows and because of this the Odin system is is touted for flashing Roms. I personally use LinuxMint and have done for 6 years so Odin is of no use to me. Could you at least put a link on your pages for us Linux users where we can get the information relative to us.
