International Galaxy Note Official ICS Released, Repackaged

While many mobile enthusiasts seem to be more concerned with the Samsung Galaxy S III that we recently gave a hands-on treatment, it is reassuring to know that Samsung still has a place in its heart for slightly older devices such as the International Galaxy Note GT-N7000. How does a large multi-national corporation show their love for a still young-at-heart device? The best way possible, of course—with an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The update to ICS comes in the form of the N7000XXLPY update to Android 4.0.3. Naturally, it also brings the love-it-or-hate-it TouchWiz user interface. Currently, the update seems to only be rolling out to those Notes in Germany. However, XDA Forum Member xaoc747 kindly posted the update in a recovery-flashable update.zip package for all to enjoy here on XDA. Forum Member xaoc747 was then kind enough to repackage the update to ODIN format and give instructions on how to root! In his own words:

Model:GT-N7000
Version:N7000XXLPY
Android 4.0.3
Date:2012 May
Open Germany

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
