Galaxy Note Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update begins to roll out: Update

Under: Phone Software, Samsung
By:Debbie Turner | January 9th, 2013

UPDATE: Phones Review would like to make a public apology about this saga of the Galaxy Note Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update, we have looked into this further and have discovered the software update does not exist at all. We know the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has the Jelly Bean update but as far as the Note 1 is concerned it seems fake. We believed that Android Geeks as well as email confirmation via users that the update for the Galaxy Note was correct, we have looked into this and asked many Galaxy Note users if they have had the update and they all replied saying no. So once again we are so sorry to lead you down the wrong path and would gladly take a slap on the wrist for taking notice of the source below, they will no longer be used as a source from this day forward.

At Phones Review we always try to keep readers informed about various operating system updates for their devices and many of our recent posts on this have regarded Jelly Bean updates for Samsung devices. Recently we told how the original Samsung Galaxy Note would soon be receiving the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update and today we can tell you that the update looks as though it has indeed begun to roll out, news that should please many, many readers.

Only yesterday we told how the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update was now rolling out to the Galaxy Note 2 and now it seems first-generation Galaxy Note owners won’t have to wait much longer either. When we told recently that the 4.1.2 update was set to arrive shortly, Samsung had not announced a firm date but it definitely looked imminent as the company confirmed what the update would bring. This included the Premium Suite applications package, the S Planner handwriting feature and improvements to S Note. There will be plenty of eager Galaxy Note owners eager to get hold of the 4.1.2 update then, although some will undoubtedly have to wait longer than others.

Today we have learned through Android Geeks that the firmware update for the Galaxy Note N7000 has started to be pushed out, with a user in Poland stating that the update was now available there. The reader confirmed that he had just received the update for his Galaxy Note via Kies, which of course is great news for owners of the device in Poland. Although the update will be rolled out to all regions and carriers eventually, we cannot say yet which areas will be the next to see the update. However it could be pushed to several countries at once and the news that it has already reached Poland is very promising for other owners waiting for 4.1.2. Jelly Bean.

If you are a Galaxy Note owner it could be worth your while to check if the update has arrived for your device yet, either as an OTA update or through Kies. We’d very much like to hear from readers regarding this update, especially regarding where you live. Are you in Poland and have also just received 4.1.2? Maybe you have received it in another region already or maybe there’s no sign of it where you are just yet? Let us know as this could be useful to other readers and share your thoughts on this by sending your comments to us.

    Unfortunately no update via Kies in Polan yet! Maybe it was just a short test from Samsung or just fake…

    • Riaz

    “Today we have learned through Android Geeks that the firmware update for the Galaxy Note N7100 has started to be pushed out, with a user in Poland stating that the update was now available there”

    N7100 ? Note 2 then

    If this in fact concerns N7000, no update available through the phone itself or via Kies as yet. My device is from Germany but I’m currently in Poland – not sure if this makes any difference. Although someone seems to have leaked the official, bug-free update already – guess I’m not waiting any longer :)

    • Marcin Freitag

      It doesn’t matter at all. I also have a gt-n7000 (bought @ amazon in Germany) and I have always received updates in Poland without any problems (both via Kies and OTA). As far as the jelly bean update is concerned, there is still none for my device.

  • Firdose Hussain

    U know i changed to Samsung from Htc coz Htc are lazy in rolling out updates….. But Samsung have also became now…. O:p Coming guys make it fast before i change to other brand

  • TEVN

    My Note n7000 is updating right now! I hopped online to see what the green Android guy has been downloading for so long. Been about 2 hrs so far. I have an unlocked Note & use Straight Talk in Vermont USA.

    • Dejay

      Omg I thought I was the only galaxy note 2 user on a prepaid network in Vermont lol.. Still havnt gotten my 4.1.2 update got the 4.1.1 still.. Has multi app view and everything but missing the awesome ink effect still :(

      • TEVN

        I have the gen 1 Note & have only had Gingerbread. I hope this upgrade (into hour 3 now) is JB & not ICS. Everyone in my house and neighborhood uses Straight Talk. We are thrifty Vermonters, you know. ;-)

  • mlk81

    I have German Note who almost always get updated first and no update here. Unless I see a video of someone’s JB I call fake.

  • samir

    Good but when in india

  • Frank

    So who is actually responsible for the update? I have Galaxy 1 Version N7000 (International version) bought in USA, Now Im in China with China Mobile telecom. Is Samsung responsible for update, or China Mobile, Does having bought in USA make any difference? Does that Im in China make any difference as to when I receive the update?

  • Daniel Mikronis

    Update available for note 2 as of today in Australia via kies. Glad I got it before my Mrs original note. That would have ducked way hard after bragging since I got it.

  • http://twitter.com/phonesreview phonesreview

  • Samsung user but samsung hater

    Samsung is one of the worst mobile phone i hsd for a Long time. In spain they told us for some time that the update jellybean will be there soon but after presenting the note 2 they forgot about the n7000 users.. Just for anyone, buy an iphone and you will not struggle with updates…

  • px

    Samsung have issued an EU users handbook for jelly bean updated to download for GT-N7000 since 25 Jan 2013 so can’t have much longer to wait.

  • Hans0304

    Still no update for Note 2 in Europe. Tired of waiting and checking….. Next phone will be a Nexus!

  • MAHEN

    I will not be buying another Samsung note device until after my galaxy note GTN7000 has been updated with the most uptodate jellybean fo my Note1….SAMSUNG TAKE NOTE OF THIS STATEMENT…I AM SURE THERE ARE OTHERS JUST LIKE ME WHO ARE FEELING LET DOWN FOR PUTTING GREAT FAITH IN YOU FOR AN UPDATE..
