After the big jump of Samsung to come out with Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, the predecessor of has already been running Android 4.0 ICS which got update last month. But after that nothing much has witness from Samsung as they were busy with Galaxy S III launch. Now then Galaxy S III is launched, Samsung gets back to their work and long awaited phone + tablet combination of Galaxy Note GT N7000 has finally been ported with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade. This would bring relief to more than 5 millions consumers who brought this big phone by Samsung. We all know that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade will certainly bring out a changed in the user interface of the your phone and along with that this also introduces various important features are panoramic capture, data usage details and lot more in particular.

Note ICS update

This update to Android 4.0 is been pushed to the all the Galaxy Note holders internationally and it has been released via over the air upgrade. Users from European countries like Germany and Netherlands were early to spot this upgrade and to let you know more about the upgrade it comes with XXLPY is the build software and the OS version included here is the Android 4.0.3 IML74L. The Galaxy Note owners can also update Galaxy Note device via the official Samsung KIES application.

The update file is of 318 MB and this also introduces the Touchwiz user interface. Samsung calls it as the Premium Suite upgrade as it comes out with various suite upgrade to S Note app and S Memo and other Samsung’s exclusive applications.

    Strongly regret updating my note 2 ics. If u havent then DONT. Its buggy as hell, scrolling behaviour in the browser sucks and it wipes your settings and forces you to update apps individually. Sheer masochistic hell AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

      Since this is an official release warranty will stay intact. That is for Custom ROM that warranty will void.

      So that’s it! What is the Android version on your phone now?

  38. Guan

    May 26, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    The new update just took away 2 functions that I like most…

    1. Text re-flow (the reason I bought the Galaxy Note), old version allowed me to re-flow text in my browser when I pinch to zoom and switch orientation.

    2. Ability to adjust brightness using notification bar after I off the auto brightness. (Had been proudly showed to my friends that I was able to do that)

    Now I am thinking to sell this and switch back to HTC.

    News for G Note owners in and around Pune….called up authorized samsung service center 020-25822584…they said they are giving free service to GT N7000 (under warranty) for upgrading to ICS….i will recommend to please go to the service station and get the stuff done for free and get delivered your phone in just 1 hour…..i see that this method is much more safer and let the company do the shit stuff instead of u…they are working on Sundays.( Monday closed)…will go tomorrow and check it out…will give u update later. They said the phone will get wiped clean…so backup your data, contacts and sms.

    Hi, I am using a n7000 & have tried updating my phone through kies, as well as from the option within the phone but still it does not show the update. It shows:

    PDA:LB2/PHONE:LB1/CSC:LA1(INU)

    as the current firmware which I believe is the latest firmware for 2.3.6, but still no news for ICS, also checked with samsung they are confirming that ICS has not yet being rolled out in India but “very soon” will be.

    waiting with my fingers crossed 😀

    • Shomit

      As far as i have collected knowledge…rooted phones can be updated…but after update all ROOT features are revoked and u may have to re-root the phone again….but u can update once its available in India.

            Do you actually have (or have seen) a note in India which has been upgraded? If not on what basis do you say that it is available in India? I’ve been checking once a day since the news came for OTA updates.
            Most people still are complaining that they haven’t got updates.

          • Shomit

            May 16, 2012 at 10:21 am

            Thats exactly the main problem Siddharth …here in this forum….everybody seems to talk out of their asses…there is no OTA or even Kies update for the firmware….yet members like Amit Bhawani and Yogeh Patel keep promising that there is an update and it will show up anytime soon…some even write with begining statement like “I HAVE READ SOMEWHERE”…stip beating around the bush and be specific …this is a technicla forum with hungry tech savvy people around and such loose statements drive me NUTS!!!!!!!…in some question above i even asked Yoesh that has he updated the phone himself…to which he smoothly avoided to answer…i am worried to the guts that these people who are making such promises as if they are from Samsung…do actually own the NOTE or not!!?..i known that this reply will get moderated but to the moderator…my reply should be an eye opener to you and you should moderate the headless or baseless comments …it will eventually drive us crazy as we are all patiently waiting……SO ALL>>>IF U AHVE NO POSITIVE REPLY….PLEASE KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!!!!!… will help many of us from not getting misguided…..

          Maybe true as spotted with OTA updates earlier, these are generally delayed.
