Unrooted Firmware Released for Australian Galaxy Note
For a while now, Australian users of the Samsung Galaxy Note have been clamoring for a firmware release so they can enjoy the magic that the rest of the Galaxy Note community has been experiencing. The stock firmware can be used in a lot of ways, from use as a development base to restoring to stock for users who decide the rooted path is not for them. Additionally, developers can also often use them to extract radios and other important files belonging to the device.
