    Hmm...I am a bit wary about ODIN though...something about binary count?

    No problem with MOBILE ODIN.... PC ODIN yes.

    Do you have MOBILE ODIN?

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

    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 ?.:thinking:

    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.

    I followed this simple guide;

    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.

    Still no update for me in the UK. I've tried kies and OTA but no update found? Does it depend the carrier?

    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

    Baz
