The first generation of Samsung’s popular phablet has been waiting for the latest Jelly Bean OS update for quite some time and while the official upgrade is still nowhere in sight,  an  Android v4.1.2 firmware leaked on the net for impatient users.

The firmware is N7000XXLSA, which is the first Android 4.1.2 leak for the Galaxy Note N7000 appeared in SamMobile. The unofficial Jelly Bean update lacks S Pen features which are expected to be implemented later, towards the final release. This is a pre-release ROM therefore many bugs are expected alongside a lot of entries in the change log.

This test firmware is like any other official firmware, you simply need to flash the firmware with Odin and you are all set. There is absolutely no need to flash any fixes later on. The source site also states that they have fully tested this firmware and it works perfectly as any other official firmware.

Here is the list of enhancements in the new Jelly Bean update:

Android 4.1.2 – Build JZO54K

Buttery smooth performance & great stability (Project Butter feature)

Multi-View (multi windows multitasking, similar to Note II)

Option to disable Multi-View

Page Buddy

Customizable notification panel

Notification panel has new additions

Smart Rotation option (screen display now adjusts to the user’s angle of sightings)

Continues input in Samsung Keyboard (similar to Swipe or Android v4.2 Keyboard)

Samsung’s Cloud services

Direct Call, Smart Stay and Pop-up Play features

New widgets from the Galaxy S III

Two home screen modes

New notifications bar

Google Now

The leaked firmware is unofficial and everyone is advice to proceed with caution as this is not the official Android Jelly Bean update. Thus, all of the necessary precautions must be taken. Just like all other firmware, there’s a possibility that your phone may brick, and that your warranty might be voided.

Samsung still needs to polish up the final build, and the official Android v4.1.2 update for the Galaxy Note N7000 is expected to release early next year.
