Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Note ll Gets Android 4.3

We have seen a few modern Samsung devices receive firmware updates recently. Looking back to November, we brought news that the Samsung Galaxy Note II N7105 was in the process of receiving the Android 4.3 update. The Samsung Galaxy Note ll (i605) from Verizon Wireless is certain not to be left out in this recent batch of Android 4.3 updates.

The update for the Samsung Galaxy Note ll i605 brings the device up from the previous version (Android 4.1.2 – VRAMC3) to version Android 4.3 – VRUEMJ9. Along with bumping up the Android version, a few new features and bug fixes have been included. One notable feature is easy access to Blocking mode, which Samsung had previously hidden from the settings menu.

Verizon has not yet officially begun pushing the update to all i605 owners, but they do appear to be conducting a splash test. It was through this splash test XDA Senior Member kwhodson received the update and was able to capture it. He pulled the files from his device and provided them to XDA Recognized Contributor beanstown106, who then converted the update into a flashable ROM.

While the ROM can be flashed normally, the update does include new firmware that must be flashed through Odin in order to insure that WiFi works. Head on over to the development thread for more info and to check out the ROM.
