Snowy, Cold and Messing Around in Russia: Galaxy Note with Stock Galaxy Note 2 Jelly Bean on it…

Update on my Galaxy Note…

Read this article first: Source >>>

Now lets talk about what is happening now on my Galaxy Note. So join me while I sip a cup of coffee and try to explain what I have done to the phone…

Today I saw that the source code for the Galaxy Note 2 was leaked around the middle of October sometime and that got me thinking. After a few cups of coffee and downloading the source code. I decided to do a little bit of work to it and see if I could port it over to my Galaxy Note…

Okay now I realized that Note 2 has a whole bunch more muscles than Note 1, but I also knew that I can overclock my Note 1 and I know a slew of tricks to speed her up and I figured that she could handle it…

Well she does and it puts a custom Rom to shame. That is not easy to do because most stock firmware has huge limitations on workability and speed, without tweaking it to the point of non workability…

It was fairly easy to port over, but you have to have some knowledge about working with an “Android Rom” and I am not getting into how to do it. I have decided that this is my pleasure and fun, but if someone would want something done to their phone I would take that in consideration and be glad to update the phone physically in my home. That means you would have to ship it to me and allow lots of time for the process to be done. I am not in business, but I would help, for the right price…

I live in Russia by the way… πŸ™‚

The rom I downloaded has all the bells and whistles, plus I was able to install binary for root and busybox right into the installation process. It just does not get any better than that…

Now Samsung Update got a little nasty and threatened me with the “You have unauthorized software installed so you will get no more updates!” attitude and so I turned that off right away. Oh Well! Easy come easy go, I say…

I had already updated to the leaked Galaxy Note stock Jelly Bean rom software, but that was just basically like the Gingerbread and ICS and was made for the Note. It was lacking in the latest and greatest from the Note 2. Like the new multi-window software for Note 2. Now that is really cool and allows a wonderful opportunity to be able to show you how the Note can multitask with the best of them…

So I am now getting ready to write on one of my books that I have been writing and then contemplate some more on the Note 1. It had a rough start and almost became a paperweight, but now that I have isolated and removed the brickbugged section of the eMMC card. (I lost 100mb of space, by the way!) So that is not noticeable in the long term scheme of things…

I hear that Samsung will finally push out an update of Jelly Bean 4.1.2 on the Galaxy Note, but that is still Note 1 specific and I suspect that it will be missing all the real charm of the Note 2 software. That makes sense because why make the Note 1 as fancy as Note 2. Then no one would want to buy the New Note 2…

It is a shame that such a strong running phone has to be plagued by software and hardware issues that degrade the full potential of the device…

But I am seeing how the Note grows on people and once you have become a big screen user and gotten a taste for the size, going back to a smaller phone just seems wrong. My poor 4 inch screened Huawei Honor looks kinda sad in comparison. The screen on my Galaxy Note is bigger than the whole Huawei phone… πŸ™‚

Have a nice day…

PS: I have to mention for those that run out and try to flash a Note 2 rom on a Note 1. Don’t do it, the rom has to be modified to flash properly on a Note 1. It is made for a Note 2 and that is that. You will brick your phone if you flash a stock rom from another model of phone to a different model of phone. If you do not know what I am talking about use Google and find out what custom rom, custom kernel and recovery image means…
