Note-N7000

According to SamMobile, Samsung has begun the promised rollout of Android 4.1 to the original Galaxy Note, originally teased back in December.

2013-02-18-08-15-24 2013-02-18-08-19-08 2013-02-18-08-13-58

The update brings much of the software functionality of the Note II, including multi-window mode, pop up video, and of course the many changes associated with Android 4.1 at large. The new software build number is JZO54K.

Commenters over at SamMobile are indicating the rollout has begun in Germany, which is quite typical of Samsung's OTA distribution practices. A sort of "test" rollout often begins in a specific region before spreading across the world, and Germany has been one of Samsung's most-favored locales. Presumably, the update will be rolled out on a wider basis (assuming there are no problems) in the coming weeks.

    eff that antique, they should roll out 4.1.2 to their note 2 customers!!

    • David N

      I got 4.1.2 for my Note 2 in Sweden today so they seem to be working on it. :)

    • ProductFRED

      Blame US carriers for that. The N7100 has had it for a while.

      I just got the 4.1.2 update on my note2 for sprint, my phone seems slower with the update I'm really not impressed with it. I hope 4.2.2 update is faster to bad we'll be waiting months for that update

      Or you could root and install CM10.1 (t0lte) and get 4.2.2. If you want a good note taking app replacement: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1798117

  • Valters Bože

    • Jojn

      post a link of how you have 4.2.2.

      • gspida

        I'm sure he is talking about the 10.1 CM nightly. I think they are saying the 2-15-13 nightly is 4.2.2

        • smk

          It is. So is Paranoid.

    • sarem

      Dear what about bettery timing?

  • Imran

    Major change. i hoppe this one is stabile with the note spec.

  • gspida

    does this mean that the source code will come out soon?

  • gspida

    What about the camera? does it have the burst shot like the note 2?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=529661026 Ayush Dhoj Bista

      it won't have the burst mode like the Note 2...it's ...umm..well not possible..due to hardware restrictions.

    • Jon Garrett

      I want to be able to take stills while shooting video AND pause video like on the Galaxy S3 ! burst mode is nice but taking stills and pausing while shooting video is awesome.

    This is for the n7000 the international version of the Note. We probably won't see an update here in the states for the i717 LTE version of the Note. If you have a i717 Note don't expect to gain a lot from a dump, as these two phones are completely different hardware.

    For the time being if you want Jelly Bean (4.2.2) on your i717 I would recommend rooting and installing the CM10.1 nightlies (quincyatt) with CyanDelta and GNote. (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1798117) I've been using the CM10.1 nightlies since the 15th and they seem pretty stable.

    • Subee

      After my update to Jelly Bean on my n7000, my battery life has become really bad. The phone is slow in general, especially with the back button and applications responding very slowly. Apps that use the stylus are also very slow in response. On the back of the phone, the top part becomes warm after only maybe 5 mins of using the phone.
      I really regret upgrading to this update since it's made me dislike my phone now, and I loved it about a month ago before it started being a pain.
      I would love for Samsung to either fix whatever the problem is, or give me a way to go back to the previous version on my phone. :( Anyone facing the same issues? Any ideas on how to resolve this?

      • sami
