New update for Galaxy Note brings new interface and gallery

Samsung updated the Galaxy Note today in Germany.
Many things have changed in the latest Galaxy Note Firmware Update by Samsung.
Samsung changed the menu interface. The interface is now the same as the Galaxy S III.
Samsung also changed the gallery. The gallery of the Galaxy Note is now the same as the Galaxy Note II, complete with new things.
Samsung has used this gallery before in some of their TIZEN presentations

If you live in Germany you can update your device by using KIES or OTA.
Of course you also can get the  firmware from our firmware page called SamFirmware

  1. I’m really glad to see Samsung improving the interface of their old devices unlike the S1 and S2 which stayed the same through all the updates and new android versions.

  2. Nice ;) One step closer to the Jelly Bean ;)

  3. this is awesome.

  4. Great to see this Samsung!! Can’t wait for Jelly Bean :)

  5. I think the galaxy s2 user should expect a similar update soon.This is just to stall time for the Jelly Bean update.

  6. This is unacceptable from Samsung,to update Note already with a newer version of 4.0.4 and leaving the S2 with the 4.0.3 with all those annoying bugs that make me feel that I have a single-core smartphone!FOR EFFING SHAME!!!!!!!:-(

  7. link pls!!!

  8. awesome awesome

  9. Still no update for SII

  10. Very nice update no fcs yet.

  11. Good news but still waiting voor the Dutch version.

  12. WOooooooooooooo…..awsm

  13. When will available for india

  14. Anyone knows where i get the background, that you can see in the screenshots?

  15. I have big problems with this update. Performance is very good, but when I arranged all my homescreen icons and rebootet, nearly the half of all homescreen icons are gone. I saw this was exactly the apps I had on my SD-card. I have to rearrange all the apps from sd-card after EVERY reboot now. Big problems. And I read from other users with exactly the same problems. I hope Jelly Bean 4.1 arrives very soon with a fix of this bad error :(

  16. I don’t see the update on my phone! I live in the US but my phone’s CSC is Germany DBT and I’m currently on the N7000DBTLRK ROM! how do I get the update?

  17. i just wonder why they built new ICS rom with all these new feature when Jelly Bean is coming soon???? i just hope they didnt cancel jelly bean and update this as a new value pack…. and i want Jelly Bean for my SGS2….or any update similar to this would do now…

  18. Well, I wonder if my contacting Samsung & suggesting that they update the UI to the S3 version had anything at all to do with this update ? I asked a bunch of others to do the same & I guess Ill never know if we had anything to do with this but Im glad it happened :-) Now the long wait to see if it comes for the North American model i717 . Thanks Samsung – KID ANDROID (Team.Android.Canada)

  19. aalhajeh …flashing via odin :)

  20. When the firmware is going to be on SamFirmware for downloading?

  22. Direct Call was added it. Now you can hide some of your app in the main menu.

  23. Is Samsung forgetting about the s2? no updates since 4.03 till now

  24. Why samsung has forgotten Galaxy S2, even with more selling number compared to Galaxy Note? The Galaxy S 2 was the best smartphone in 2011. Or Samsung has something prepared behind the scenes? I think Samsung could loose a big community of users if Sammy do it. I hope that something is behind all. If not, I think my appreciated Galaxy S2 will be my last Samsung smartphone.

  25. They were already working on the new Note so Im sure it wasnt that hard to throw these onto the Galaxy Note & see how things go while they are building the Jelly Bean update. I dont get why ppl with the Galaxy S2 think they should be first to get an update when the Galaxy Note is a more premier device that customers paid much more for then the Galaxy S2, it should get updated first. Anyways the Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S2 will probably be first so calm down. We both just got updated to ICS so you should be enjoying that still anyways. Ppl are never happy about anything geez, if you care so much about updates go buy a crApple phone & get ripped off in every other way. Updates will come, be patient. – KID ANDROID

  40. Samsung is really working hard. I am glad to be part of the whole experience. Thank you Sammobile for the updates and information. Keep it up

  41. Downloading, will try later on (no apps on SD here, so no worries about SD apps disapearing ^^)

  42. Good

  43. I must to say that the firmware works fine, i’m using days ago in my white note and don’t see any problem, the battery have well performance, 1% by day. In the first days had bad battery life reported by CPU-SPY but was the sinc of my exchange mail each 15 min refreshing, only i put the sync on never and ready. Comparing the interface, is almost the same Galaxy S3 interface, i recive calls, messages, mobile internet, apps, ect.
    Really a nice interface, but is strange that only the N7000…and the XXLRQ. The galaxy s2 have 200MHz less by core that the note, samsung must to know that the S2 have performance too.
    I hope that when the 4.1 update appears, either the S2 and the Note, they can to have the update together.
    Good luck S2 users!

  44. After I updated my Note I got a weird bug, Whatsapp wasn’t working on wi-fi anymore (could not send or receive messages), but it was ok on 3G. It starded working normally after 1 or 2 hours (wi-fi and 3G)

  45. i have heard samsung is not going to provide jellybean until 2013…and after jellybean no update for galaxy s2 and note.

  46. when is it coming to india? ??
