Samsung started its Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update roll out from Poland on December 10. Millions of Galaxy Note 2 users (including me), who could not wait for the official release for their respective country/region, flashed the Poland build to get the new features and improvements. Now it’s is time for some of them and many others to flash the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean specific build for their country as Samsung has now directed the update to some Asian countries like India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh. Countries like France and Peru have also started receiving the new Jelly Bean update via Over-the-Air feature on device and Samsung Kies.
If you belong to any of any of the countries mentioned above, start checking for the new update on Kies. You can also check for the latest firmwate update for your Note 2 from Settings> About> Software update. Note that you will be able to get the update via Kies or OTA only of your phone is on stock firmware and it is not rooted. If you did not get the update notification yet or are unable to upgrade to Android 4.1.2 via Kies, you can still install the new firmware using Odin.
