Jelly Bean OTA Official Update Finally, For Samsung Galaxy Note

However users in India need to wait for now or manually download, as the Android 4.1.2 OTA update is rolling out in phases for the GT-N7000 (Galaxy Note 1).

 

Samsung has officially begun to roll out the Android 4.1.2 upgrade after a long wait, to users of the first Galaxy Note phablet (model GT-N7000). Its successor, the Galaxy Note 2 and its peer the Galaxy S2 phone, have both received an official JB update already. With this, the Note N7000 looks and feels pretty much like the Note 2, due to the overhauled features, user experience and "Project Butter" implementation.

Users can download install the update either via Samsung KIES, or OTA (click "Update my phone" from the Settings to receive it over-the-air via WiFi/3G). If the update hasn't reached you yet, you can take the risk of manually installing this firmware update (version JZ054K) using Odin via PC.
