Default Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean Update Roll Out Looking Good

Quote:
The Samsung Galaxy Note will apparently be getting the upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
In addition to confirming the Galaxy S II Jelly Bean update, SamMobile also confirmed the update for Samsung’s original 5.3-inch phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update was rumored to be coming out in Q4 and today’s news does nothing to dispute that. It appears that the testing for the Galaxy Note Jelly Bean update went well and Samsung, at least at the moment, plans to roll the update out to Galaxy Note owners.
Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean Update Roll Out Looking Good


If true and I see no reason to suspect otherwise, this is very good news!

hopefully it happens. My old Desire HD was supposed to get ICS, then HTC pulled it. Might hold out and not get the note 2 now.

I have no idea if that will happen, though it would make sense to upgrade the UI along with the OS when it's released.

I don't think the US will get the note 2 until nov or dec. so I am thinking about pulling the trigger on the note that's available now. Only question before I buy it is, do you think the note that's available now will get jelly bean real soon? If so I want to buy it now.

From what I can gather, though no definite date has been set, Jellybean is supposed to be coming to the Note in Q4 of this year, which isn't that far off really.

If you're buying it outright (not the new contract price) then I'd say just wait til October and get one imported. It'll get updates faster than one you buy from an American carrier.

If you're using your upgrade then I understand not wanting to wait until December or whenever they release it here.

I'm seriously considering looking at how much I can get for my Note on ebay when the 2 comes out. I am totally happy with the Note. Love it. But.. Bigger, faster, newer.

Gaahhhh, get out of my head shiny magnet.

Why would this not be true? Just curious.... Am I missing something, or is not the whole point of OS updates to improve all devices running that OS? Or, are the OS updates only made for new devices just coming out at the time? That way when new software comes out they make you feel outdated and force you to buy a new device?

The comment of mine that you quoted was just a note of caution really. I have heard rumours in the past that have turned out not to be the case.

HTC said their Desire HD was gonna get ICS a while back, then a month or so ago said it aint happening.

So yeah, until the new OS is on your device, I just take what the manufacturers say with a pinch of salt tbh.

Excellent news. I hope the note gets the feature which doesn't allow it to switch off when I'm looking at it!?

Samsung GALAXY Note - Samsung Mobile

At the above link, look at where it says Platform and you will see it says JellyBean.4.1.

I suggest this means the JB update is imminent, seeing as how Samsung themselves have added JB to the specification of the Note.

I shall continue to view all of this whilst taking a pinch of salt.
I don't know what to believe these days.....
This thread started in August....... Almost 5 months late...what a shambles
Lets be right about it, they won't give us JB until they see the Note 2 sales all but stop....

Q4 for 2012 has come and gone. Samsung has lied again! Here is why:

I don't think the JB will be released until the original note is OFF the market at the stores. Why would one buy a Note 2 if the Note has JB too? The Note 2 wouldn't be worth $150 more would it? So, with that in mind, I don't expect the JB until the original note goes off the market.

I got this news in my inbox last night:
http://www.techhive.com/articl...
So in the USA, I bet it is still months away ONLY if the NOTE is off the market.

Those dates and that site is referring to the premium suite update that we all got last summer bundled with the ICS update... NOT the JB update.... (See 2:28 of the video)
They are separate things. If you watch that Video, you'll see that you can already do all that stuff.
Premium Suite upgrade is a totally different thing to the Jelly Bean update.

So I bit the bullet, took mine back and got the Note II. Now I have JB and all the improvements over the Note i.
Time for me to head over to the Note 2 section and hang there.

Good luck folks with the waiting.

Something weird happened last night which made me excited for all of 5 seconds.

I was on my computer and on the notifications tray, a message from Kies popped up saying "Downloading Firmware Updates. Click here to view.", or something to that affect. So I did and nothing.

Could it be that it was downloading the JB update for the S2 as I live in Spain and I heard that Spain was the 1st country to get JB rolled out for the S2 yesterday?

Whatever it was, I have no idea.

Uh... how long you folks been waiting for JB now that was promised many months ago and keeps getting pushed back? Samsung has lied several times saying it would be 4Q of 2012, then 1Q of 2013, then 2Q of 2013... bla, bla, blah!

I got tired of waiting for as it could very well be later this year before JB is available in USA. So now I got a new updated Note II with JB. And there ARE several improvements over the Note I, especially in speed to make it worthwhile.

No more waiting for me.

You made it sound as if your note2 was faster because of jb.

Anyways, enjoy your new device.
