Samsung Galaxy Note 2 System Dump
Here at XDA, we love to get our hands on all the goodies extracted from newly released devices so that we can start porting them onto other devices. What makes it even more exciting is when this happens before the device hits store shelves.
In an XDA exclusive, thanks to XDA Forum Moderator oka1, we now have our hands on a full system dump of the yet to be released Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Weighing in at 920MB, this full system dump should let you get your hands on the various goodies hidden within the upcoming “phablet.” It also gives the resident developers access to the inner workings ahead of time, allowing for tweaks and fixes to be worked on before release.
If you want to go digging around in the system dump, head on over to the Note 2 thread.

But for the most part, the awe has vanished. There is a feeling that virtually all of us at the XDA office...
