Yes. Use Mobile Odin and check Everroot to keep your root.

Surprised

A couple of questions
1. Is this a general release meaning via Samsung itself or is via your provider as was ICS.? As yet nothing in Orange in UK.
2. Also will this be OTA or via Kies ?.

Thanks in advance

I downgraded back to Gingerbread because ICS was killing my battery in like 6 hours is the bug in this version fixed ?, If not what's the point in flashing it.

For me personally, this was a terrible update. The phone no longer goes into deep sleep when it's not being used, meaning it used 3-4% battery an hour when idle. There's a tonne of people experiencing this problem on XDA forums. It all comes down to wakelocks, I fiddled endlessly to resolve it but no luck.

The upside of this for me was that it effectively forced me to give the finger to Samsung flavoured official ics, and I've since gone back to GB, full wipe/factory reset, and now I'm rocking CM9. Uuurgh, it is so so SO good, can't believe I've not done it earlier. It's like a new phone, I'll never go back now.

Ok, I know I am going to sound sarcastic, but I have to ask. Does 4.0.4 actually fix anything?

Android 4.0.3 allowed me to disable the worst of the problem apps. It helped a lot because my phone does not freeze anymore. Also the dreaded 'voice talk' can be disabled. Very good Google!

Movies from Google Play still will not play. The stylus is still far too sensitive to be practical. The Phone app is clumsy at best. Every call, SPAM, solicitor, or navigation point finds its way to my contacts list. Are any of those problems fixed? As a phone this thing is more problems than it is worth.

My GN-7000 is nothing more than the worlds’ most expensive Kindle, and personal navigator.

Just a warning, I had exactly the same problem with the official German release of 4.0.4. Other wake locks were spoiling the party too.

Oh, and the battery pull trick didn't work on mine either, peoples experience on that seem to differ.

Hi mate just curious as to which CM9 did you use? as the download link in the instructions no longer works...i did a google search for CM9 nightly, got onto the cyogen website where i downloaded the latest version for note n7000, flashed as per instructions and found it only had half the apps on for instance...no movie player...no music player...no way to browse my files (installed astro but it would not read anything off my external sd)...really want to use custom fw (might aswell since my note is now rooted.

any assistance would be greatly appreciated

regards

This is something I do not understand - I bought 2 Samsung Notes, international versions and unlocked. A couple of days ago my SNote received an OTA notification that the upgrade to 4.0.3 is available. I chose to upgrade and everything went fine. The other phone did not receive the notification, so I went to settings,and try to update it. It gave me a message that the firmware is up to date and of course told me that no update is available. The second phone is now stuck to 2.3.x where is the justice here?

Hi

I had the same problem when I upgraded my Note to ICS. My Pioneer car system would just not route the calls as I could initially do with GB.

I went into the connection settings on the car deck, deleted the device Galaxy Note and re-connected it after entering the passkey.
And guess what?
It works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just like before.

Please try and reply

Problem resolved. Honda handfree link was looking for gingerbread note not an ICS upgraded Note. Deleted old phone profile from car and started from scratch. Works good!

Omar Days,

I fine tuned the accounts and the elements of them for what I allow auto sync, got rid of Facebook app and my battery life is brilliant again after suffering since 4.0.3.

4.0.4 looks good and feels quick, and of course the in play movie feature is cool.

Thumbs up ICS 4.0.4 for UK is here !!

Yes I stumbled upon it by mistake thinking it was a newer version of 4.0.3 using 'checkfus downloader'

The webversion of Check Fus 2.0

Downloaded ICS 4.0.4 from 'checkfus downloader' today

Product Code: GT-N7000ZBAXEU
Latest firmware: N7000XXLRK/N7000XEULP5/N7000XXLRK/N7000XXLRK
Modified: 24/07/2012 11:17:01
Filename: GT-N7000_XEU_1_20120724111617_83hlhgn7j9.zip.enc2

Installed using ODIN - rebooted, checked 'About Phone' - Version 4.0.4

Yes at 1st glance it is RAPID, SMOOTH !!

************************************************** *********
However I have since rooted it using the CF-Root-SGN_XX_XEU_LQ2-v5.6-CWM5

Yellow Triangle 1.70 - worked and cleared the counts etc

Installed binaries via 'busybox'

(Haven't reinstalled - 'Speedmod K3-11')

and it still suffers the same 'NO WIFI CONNECTION' problem I had with ROOTED 4.0.3 ics with apps I'd installed via a CWM backup rom image

help some wifi issues with my galaxy note - xda-developers


Any tips on how to get wifi to connect would be helpful - cheers

Thumbs up

t sport 1978

I've had the note connected to kies this morning and the message was the same - 'no support' etc , tried ota - also the same!!

csc is set to XEU, so kies should have picked up on it and notified me of the 4.0.4 update, but it didn't!

Half hour after after finding the update on checkfus, I had a look at sammobile and the new file for the UK is also there now too.

Bottom line is there's a wifi connection problem once you root the rom, whether it be 4.0.3 or 4.0.4 !

What's actually changed? the only thing that I can notice on mine is the keyboard and video's now pop out so you can be on another app whilst watching a video.

Has anyone got OTA for XEU yet? I've been out of the country and can see on sammobile that 4.0.4 is released for XEU but OTA says no updates. I can't use Kies as I don't use Windows.

This is a really SAD story of a rank '0' grade newbie! Yes, of course I would like to upgrade my by-now 2 month old GN-N7000. I really hate those 'root now', find the custom Rom advices, I WILL NOT tamper with the original code. BUT there was this download ODIN/download 4.0.4 N7000XXLRG.zip so I did---and walked away nervously, not daring to start my usual catastrophy. Two days later, with a click and Joshua's trumpet, I was advised I am now at version 4.04! DuH? Ah well...Is all well?
How would I know? I'm a Grade '0' newbie, tripping over life's rich pattern (I hope).

The keyboard is miles better.

No more random full stops in sentences because your finger touched it, editing text is better too now, found it impossible before.

My Note is much snappier after the upgrade to 4.04. Much. Unlocked UK Note.

Well after going to all the trouble of installing Windows 8 evaluation edition in a virtual machine and installing kies, kies decided not to load. I gave OTA another shot and hey presto 'Update Available'!

Haven't been to the forum for a couple of weeks so news of an OS update was a bit of a surprise. Checking for an update via the phone didn't show anything but Kies did. Downloading it now.

Refused to download via Kies last night because of repeated time-outs. This morning it downloaded first time. Not seen a revolutionary difference so far.

This maybe a silly question. I'm in Australia on a Hong Kong Galaxy note. I received the 4.03 update over the air a week ago. Today my phone tells me there is another firmware update (84.26MB). But this one would not install. crashes my phone and says 'firmware update failed try Kies) There is no update on Kies and this new update has now disappeared and my phone shows no update available anymore and I am still on 4.03.

Was this 84.26MB update 4.04 ?
