AT&T Galaxy Note gets newer and more stable ICS leak

If you're an AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note owner jealous of the international model's shiny new official  Ice Cream Sandwich update, you can take solace in yet another Android 4.0 leak for the American version. BriefMobile got their hands on the official software and posted it for download. If you're running the older version, you may want to upgrade: the newer ROM brings significant bug fixes, though it's far from perfect.

The leaked AT&T ROM from April was build UCLD3, while this build is UCLC5. There's no additional features and it's still Android 4.0.3, but the performance and stability of the newer software is testified by plenty of users already. The annoyingly constant force closes of the previous build seem to be fixed. Apparently it still needs a little more time in the oven, because for some reason Instagram doesn't work. Flashing it will require a Windows PC, and unfortunately you'll lose all the data stored on the phone so far (not to mention root privileges if you've obtained them).

Naturally, the upgrade is offered with no guarantees and plenty of caution - flash at your own risk. Those of you who are custom ROM junkies may want to skip the official updates entirely and try out some of the latest CyanogenMod 9 nightlies. On the Galaxy Note in particular they've added support for the S-Pen stylus and generally tidied things up. As always, remember to make a Nandroid backup.

    A couple of corrections: the new build is UCLD3 the old one is UCLC5.
    Also the CM9 nightlies are only for the international Note. Do Not Flash that rom on an AT&T Note!

      Took the words right out of my mouth. #researchfail

    Not a single force close.  Installed for over an hour.

    Not only did they get the builds wrong, they also indicate that the AT&T users can just use the CM9 ROM. Wrong. That’s for the international version.

    Sheesh.

    Talk about “…far from perfect.”

    The editing and research needs some serious effort. Flashing the wrong ROM can totally brick a phone.

    Never rooted any of my previous androids because I could NOT afford to own any $600 bricks. This article and these comments will do nothing to change my behavior. YIKES!!!
