Update Galaxy Note GT-N7000 to Jelly Bean 4.1.1 using CyanogenMod 10

Because there is no official date for a Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Note GT-N7000, users will have to find ways to get this OS on their smartphones. But they won’t have to look too much to have it. We are treating you with this operating system here.

There’s info making the headlines on the Internet. According to it, the Galaxy Note GT-N7000 will receive a new operating system upgrade next month. Since nothing is sure, we found a way to provide our readers with a set of unofficial CyanogenMod 10 nightlies. They were thought of by xda-developers.com member called mnm1992 via the CyanogenMod 10. But before we proceed with these, we have to tell you that they do not offer the same stability as the real deal. This having been said, beware of certain bugs that they will bring and which will not be so easy to fix. Except by experts.


You will have to keep in mind some things. Like the fact that these nightlies need certain elements to work correctly. These elements are as follows: a Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 that has ClockworkMod Recovery present on it; it also has to run the CyanogenMod 9 custom ROM.

Then you will have to download one of the these files:

After this step you will need to do a backup of all important data that is on your smartphone. That way you are not going to have troubles if you want to read your text messages, grab your Wireless passwords and so on. Because you never know when all of this deletes every single data on your device.Galaxy-Note-N7000-update

Other words of warning are the following: the instructions that we wrote out will only work if you own Samsung’s Galaxy Note GT-N7000. We do not claim that everything we are about to say will work like a charm in the end. So pay really good attention.

Important instructions

  1. First step is to download the CyanogenMod 10 custom ROM file to the root of the internal memory card. Once you completed this step, make sure to turn the device off.
  2. Next step is to boot into the phone’s Recovery mode. If you cannot locate it, here’s a method: press while simultaneously selecting the buttons for Home, Volume Up and Power buttons (we should add here that, once you are in the Recovery mode and want to select backup and navigate, you should use the buttons for Power and Volume, respectively).
  3. After this you have to perform a NANDroid data Back-up of your actual version of the ROM.
  4. To do that, return to Backup and Restore menu. Once you are there, opt for Backup.
  5. Then choose an option called Factory reset/Wipe data. You will see a screen appear: confirm that you chose that option.
  6. The following step is to choose the installation of the ZIP file from the SD card. Select the ZIP from SD card option and after that choose the CyanogenMod 10 custom ROM file. And return.
  7. The final step is to restart the operating system.

And that’s it, folks. By carefully following the steps laid out above, you will get your Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update to your Galaxy Note GT-N7000 in no time. And enjoy everything that it has to offer.
