Galaxy Note I717 ICS 4.0.3 Update Leaked
Early this morning, XDA Senior Member zer0nine melted the faces and blew the minds of Samsung Galaxy Note users in the forums by announcing that the icing on the Galaxy Note cake has arrived, in the form of an update for the Note that brings the device to Android 4.0.3. If you’ve got a Note and your sweet tooth is craving some ICS, head over to the announcement thread for links to the image. The update must be flashed with Odin, so be sure you make a complete backup of your device and know how to restore it should something go wrong.
Although the build is fully functional, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, the Touchwiz launcher will crash on first boot and after adding a Google Play account. Second, flashing this build will increase your flash counter and will therefore void your warranty. Finally, while this update has no effect on your devices external SD card, the internal SD card will be wiped during the flash.
So what are you waiting for? Head to the original thread to get started. After your sweet tooth has been satisfied, don’t forget to post your findings and discuss any improvements, major changes, or bugs you may encounter!

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
