There are many owners of high end Android smartphones that are not that old who are still waiting to receive the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for their devices. Many owners of Samsung handsets are among these with recent news focussing on the situation with the Galaxy S2, but now we can tell you about the Android 2.3.6 update for the Samsung Galaxy Note (GT-N7000).
While it may not be that elusive Android ICS upgrade but another Gingerbread update has been released, build XXLC1, which according to the Android Community is the latest version of the Android 2.3.6 firmware available for the Galaxy Note.
It may not be as good as Ice Cream Sandwich but it will provide something for you to play around with while you wait, and it has to be remembered it s only compatible for the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000. To check you have the right version of the handset first you have to go to settings and hit the option ‘About phone’.
Before you can carry out the update there are a number of things you will need such as a Windows PC, and it has to be remembered the procedure will delete all the data stored on your handset so make sure you back this up before you start.
Samsung’s KIES application will probably try and interrupt the installation so this will need to be uninstalled first, along with temporarily disabling any antivirus and security suites you have installed on your PC. It has to be remembered that downloading the software is done at your own risk, and for the full detailed instructions hit the link above.
Do you already have the software installed on your Samsung Galaxy Note, and if so what do you think of it?
