Frnds dont wait just update to official Jb german rom. or if u want to root ur device within warranty u co go ahead and root ur device with safe kernal. its just void ur warranty rest nothing harm to ur device.rooting device is just like keeping clothes in othr companies box.
Hi. Still awaiting JB upgrade in the UK for a SIM free Galaxy Note. But just a question for anyone who HAS upgraded to JB... Do you lose the standalone S Memo app, once you have upgraded? I know the S Memo function is within the S Note on the Note 2, but I would prefer to keep it on its own, as I have this as a direct app on my homepage. Seen some comments that S Memo (on its own), is not on the Note 2 and users not happy with this, even though there is S Memo Lite.
Can anyone confirm? Thanks.

Gingerbread is good in terms of battery alone. After updating to ics and jb many are facing more battery drain lasts for 12 hours only With heavy usage. OOtherwise jb is awesome in terms of features and smoothness. Though jb is officially not released in india u cn use a software called odin and update to German official jb rom.
If ur device is out of warranty u can root ur device and install custom jb roms with more features

what are you doing Samsung?? when will the JB update be available for note users in INDIA??
The Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 (aka the first one) is an awesomely awesome-tastic phone. True, you can do most of the same stuff with the newer model smaller phones, but thats what you get - a smaller phone!
The original Note was a game changer. It ran circles around the I-phone (personal experience talking).
If you like to watch films or just like to see more on screen, this is THE phone. I can watch the Formula 1 via wifi no problem. A few seconds to settle and you have hi-def tv! Put this through the car speakers and it sounds incredible (I was parked outside a shop while my wife was spending money. I found a wifi hotspot).
Get Polaris Office and you can type your Word compatible documents, do spreadsheets, powerpoint and other stuff I have still to use. I dont need this reall but it shows how it is a phone for all sorts of applications.
End of the day, this phone is awesome, fantastic, marvellous, and anything else you can think thats good.
The camera has taken some outstanding pictures. Sports mode, nighttime, panoramic, low light, parties you name it.
The only gripe I would have is one that any smartphone owner will have. Battery life. But alongside my wifes' SII, and it is not much different. Which cant be too bad considering I will be running 2 or 3 applications against her running one game. This is easily fixed by buying a higher mAh (capacity) battery. Try to find one over 3000mAh and you'll be happier.
Oh, it makes good phone calls too!
JB has been released in UAE.Neither its in OTA nor in Kies Air
Even i phone 10 cannot come anywhere close to note performance.Just for software update u sold note ?

Better go for S4, Xperia Z or HTC one. I'm also using Note N7000 over a year. But until they release Note 3 I’m going keep this with me. For me no lags or any other issues at all. Prefect for me..
successfully flashed ultimate ROM after checking recovery mode...it showed philz cwm... but somehow in "about device" there was no change in kernal name.. took risk and flashed the custom rom... going smooth s of now...
this is the kernel version i have in about device
the previous one i installed is also suppose to change the kernel but didnt... but my recovery mode looks different now..how should i check if my kernel has changed apart from about device option
Dibyendu, 16 Mar 2013This kernel is totally brick free.
