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.

Thankfully for Aussie Note owners, the wait is now over. XDA Senior Member prana_Sky has posted some links to the stock Australian firmware courtesy of Samfirmware . However, there are a few catches with the new firmware. Those looking for a rooted stock ROM would do best to listen to XDA Recognized Contributor dr.ketan, who points out:

This root won’t work directly.
Otherwise write complete procedure how to do it.
here I am describing in short
-First get rootable ROM
-Get root with attached file
-Use CWM to update attached N7000XSAKL1 ROM.

For additional information, discussion and more, check out the firmware thread to get started. This firmware and all other stock ROM releases for the Note, along with their associated rooting instructions, are available in dr.ketan’s original thread.
