Let’s check out the detailed pre requisites which you need to follow and then followed by which in the next page we have mentioned the detailed guide on how to apply this update in your Galaxy Note.

Pre Requisites:

  • All the data in your device should be backed up with the help of below mentioned steps. Don’t use KIES to back up the data as it won’t detect the beta firmware or the leaked firmware.

SMS – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log - Call Log and Restore
Images, Songs, Videos, Files – Copy to internal / External SD Card,
APN and MMS Settings – Note down from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • Disable all the antivirus suites in your computer and uninstall the same in your device as these tools generally tend to interrupt the process of firmware update. You should have the admin rights in your PC along with the active USB ports with full read / write access.
  • Minimum charge left in the device should be at least 70% so as to ensure that device doesn’t get turned Off in the middle of firmware update.
  • Enable the USB Debugging in your Galaxy Note N7000 from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”. The USB Debugging option should be ticked as shown in the below screen capture.

  1. recovery mode isnt volume down and power, that’s download mode. recovery mode is volume up + home + power.

  2. Hi i am On GB 2.3.6 LA1 may i apply this update directly ??????

  3. Installed yesterday and it was the easiest and best process of over a dozen previous installs. Maybe it helped that I was already on ZSLPF ICS 4.0.3 already. I was able to root this ROM using CWM and SU-Busybox-Installer following directions http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1647148
    I was wondering if there is any advantage/difference to the other ICS DDLP8 version or if this version DXLP9 is the best choice.

    Thanks for a great job.
