Samsung Galaxy Note Ice Cream Sandwich update leaks outAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
It looks like Samsung Galaxy Note owners now have a nice little treat to help them get over the mid-week hump, as the 5.3-inch handset's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update has leaked online. Posted by the folks at RootzWiki, the new software will bump users to Android 4.0.3 (complete with TouchWiz) and also includes Face Unlock and the new ICS multitasking menu. What's not included is the Premium Suite that Samsung detailed last month.
This leak is the latest in a line of Android 4.0 updates that have surfaced early for AT&T devices, with the Galaxy S II and Galaxy S II Skyrocket updates both hitting the Web last week. Galaxy Note owners that also happen to be Windows PC users can go ahead and flash this leaked update by hitting up the RootzWiki link below. Just remember that we're not responsible if you decide to pull the trigger and something goes wrong, and installing this update will end up voiding your warranty. As for those of you that'd rather wait for the official update push, we've yet to hear anything from AT&T on when that'll be happening, but The Verge claims that a near-final version of the update is in testing now, and that a public release may go down sometime in the coming weeks. Until then, why don't you brave and/or impatient folks that decide to install this update swing by the comments below to let us know how the software is working for you?
