The firmware is said to be slow, lacks the multi-window feature
Owners of a Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone can now take a new leaked Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean build for a spin on their devices, namely N7000XXLS2.The new firmware has been reportedly found on Samsung’s servers, which should make it a bit safer to install on devices. However, it is still not an official release, which means that users should think twice before going for it.
The guys over at SamMobile note that the new Jelly Bean for Galaxy Note GT-N7000 does not come with Multi-View built-in, since the feature is still in testing phase, but that the next firmware release for the device, namely N7000XXLS3, should include it.
Moreover, they also note that, while the new firmware is based on Android 4.1.1, Samsung might also be considering making the newer Android 4.1.2 platform release available for this device.
In fact, some suggest that it might jump directly to Android 4.1.2 for Galaxy Note, and that the OS might arrive with a firmware version newer than N7000XXLS7 (this software can be seen in the video embedded below).
Apparently, the company is already working on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S II, which means that it might not be too long before the update lands on both devices.
As for the newly leaked Firmware N7000XXLS2, it was cooked on October 9 and packs the same screenlock as nature UI, along with SPEN cursor air-view.
The firmware is said to be rather slow, although it does bring the Jelly Bean platform release on Galaxy Note. Those who would like to learn more on how to install the new firmware should head over to this page on SamMobile.
Before proceeding, however, they should know that they will install the leaked OS at their own risk, and that they will be the only ones to be held responsible, should anything wrong happen with the handset.
The official OS upgrade should not be too far in the future, and users are advised to wait for it instead. As you might know, Samsung has already started the delivery of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for Galaxy S III.
