Galaxy Note Android 4.1.2

The frequency with which the Jelly Bean update test firmwares for Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 are leaking out only point to one thing that the Android 4.1 JB update for the device is at hand. It was just a few weeks ago that we had another leaked test firmware version N7000XXLSA, and now there is a new leaked ROM  based on Android 4.1.2 N7000BLS4TCE that is available for download and ready to be flashed.

The latest leaked FW is for th Mexican cellular service provider Tel Cel and therefore it houses a bunch of different apps and widgets specific to the provider. After flashing the firmware, the look of our Galaxy Note turned different from what we are used to see on a typical Galaxy phone.  Moreover, the look of default icons have been changed. Just like the previous leak, this version too does not have a new S Pen features. May be they are added when the final and official release comes out.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    What do you mean by “paid for it”? I guess you are talking about high speed download from Hotfile! Well this a leaked firmware and therefore it will not be that great performance-wise. I would stiil recommend you installing the latest official release from here:

    http://droidviews.com/2013/update-samsung-galaxy-note-gt-n7000-to-android-4-1-2-jelly-bean-official-firmware/

    You will find the required steps easily explained there. Use it, flash it, enjoy it. If you still face any issue, let me know.

    Hi!! sorry for delay i have downloaded it from the above link only and had also paid for it…i don’t know anything about ROM if you could help me for getting it installed by some step by step method as you had shown above. And for battery i’ad downloaded Juice Defender but i don’t think so it is working GR8..as I am from India i don’t think so they had officially released here.

    Have you installed the official 4.1.2 release?

    http://droidviews.com/2013/update-samsung-galaxy-note-gt-n7000-to-android-4-1-2-jelly-bean-official-firmware/

    If yes, use a battery saver app on your phone. Greenify and Juice Defender are nice apps for the purpose. Additionally you can configure you device to get better battery life:

    The official firmware is full of bloatwares that consume much RAM and thus slow up your phone. Read this article and it might help you:
