System Dump Appears for the Sprint Galaxy Note 2
With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 looming closer and closer, it’s really hard not to get excited. It’s gigantic, it’s powerful, and it’s beautiful. And as with the Galaxy S III, Samsung is bringing the device to all of the US carriers. So Sprint and Verizon customers won’t have to look at AT&T and T-Mobile customers with envy this time around.

An RDF found at the Sprint site suggests that the Sprint version will carry the quad-core Exynos4412 that powers the international version.
Additionally, sextape has shared links for a CWM recovery along with the stock recovery. This should help jump start development on the Note 2. It could also lead to more Note 2 applications being ported to other devices. For more details, check out the original thread.
