Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 is on our latest tutorial because we have a way to update it to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. We have summoned the aid of a new official firmware called XXLT4 by its developer.
All that we ask of you is that you consider these requirements before you do anything else: make a backup via
our guides (include, in it, the data without which you cannot function), find and flash USB Drivers for this phone on your laptop, use the model that comes factory unlocked, charge the device’s battery and turn on USB debugging.
After mentioning the above, we feel compelled to also let you know that if you have a rooted Note GT-N7000, the end of this guide will leave it unrooted; which is why you will need to read our rooting tutorial if you wish to enjoy the benefits of such a procedure. Also, the phone’s custom ROM will no longer be present.
After we’ve settled what pre-requisites to adhere to, we introduce the following steps.
- Step number one is here with these guidelines: download, on your computer, the and Odin tool v3.07. At the end of the download you should unzip the files that come with these two archives; make sure there is a file called either .tar.md5 or .tar as its extension.
- The next task to perform is part of step two: power the smartphone off.
- For the third step you need to boot the Galaxy Note N7000 off by pressing and holding Home, Volume Down and Power. Stop doing that when the phone comes to life, then press Volume Up and you should be in the Download Mode in a couple of seconds.
- Odin has to be opened for the fourth step; you also need to plug the handset to your laptop. “Added!“, a COM port number and an ID:COM box in yellow are the signs to look for; if they are there, then the devices connected successfully; if you’ve run into trouble, flash the USB Drivers one more time.
- Step five:
– opt for a file whose extension is either .tar or .tar.md5; it will appear when you click on PDA
– click on Phone and choose a file that contains MODEM in its name
– once you click on CSC, a file with CSC in its name will pop on the display; opt for it
– click on PIT; now choose a file named .pit.
If you’ve had no luck seeing the files above, here is what you should do instead: check the boxes that say F. Reset Time and then Auto Reboot.
- [sc name=”banner-jos”]When you’re done, the sixth step will require the following from you: activate Repartition should you have opted for the .pit file, then click on Start. Only this way will the XXLT4 flash on your Galaxy Note N7000.
- Once you spot a message that mentions PASS, you have to wait for the handset to restart. The home screen should come to life.
- Step eight: unplug the GT-N7000 from your laptop. Go to About Phone from Settings and look for the XXLT4; if you spot it, then you’ve performed our guide very well.
