There's been a lot of talk lately from Samsung regarding updates to Jelly Bean, but almost all of that talk has been about their flagship Galaxy S III smartphone. We haven't heard a peep regarding the original Galaxy Note since August. For those original Note owners we have good news. Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean has leaked for the international model.
The original Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 (one with the dedicate home bottom) has received it's very own flavor of Jelly Bean this afternoon. The folks from SamMobile have leaked the build although it still isn't quite up to par. Obviously this is a test version, and nothing official, so you'll want to proceed at your own risk.
According to SamMobile this is the first Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean leak for the original Note, and they also claim the Galaxy S II Jelly Bean update is extremely close to being finished too. Much closer in fact than the Note, as the OG Note still is missing all those S-Pen features we love and adore.
Samsung's added everything we know and love about Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Some of those include expandable notifications, Google Now voice search, project butter for a smooth and stable OS, Multi-view, customizable notification panel, Samsung cloud services, Pop-Up Play and new widgets from the Galaxy S III, as well as 2 new homescreen layout modes. As we mentioned above, this is still an early leak and nothing official. You'll be required to flash the zip in odin, but it's said to be pretty stable. You won't have many of those S-Pen features and the S-Pen suite of applications working, so continue at your own risk. More details and the download file are available at the source link below.
