A few days back I made a post dealing with a leaked stock Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean based custom ROM for the Galaxy Note. And now we have the official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean test firmware for the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 . The new firmware’s baseband version is N7000XXLSA and it is still under testing phase before being released officially. Although we call it a test firmware, our sources from Samsung say that it might be the final build version of the JB update for Note.
The leaked Android 4.1.2 firmware for GT-N7000 is just like any other official firmware that be flashed directly to your Note (via Odin) like any other official release. If you are one who is waiting desperately to upgrade to the new stock Jelly Bean update, you need not wait any more. The firmware is reported to be working perfectly on the Galaxy Note.
