    Hello All,
    What is the difference between "a firmware update" and a "Ice Cream Sandwich Update"?
    Kies tells me there is a firmware update for my Gingerbread Galaxy Note?

    I know I don't have to do anything and I don't want to go to Jellybean as I believe there are a few problems with it. If I do the firmware update with Kies will it autometically do the Jellybean update? I don't want to do that. I think I would be willing to upgrade to ICS.
    I suppose the bottom line of my question is is firmware uprgade the same as ICS or Jellybean upgrade?

    Thank you in advance.

    As far as I know, its the same thing. One can update software either though kies or through 'about phone' in settings
