Update Galaxy Note N7000 with RocketROM 4.1 Jelly Bean

While thinking what gadget to use for our next “How to” post, we stumbled across Samsung’s Galaxy Note N7000 which was praised by many of its proud owners. And then we found out that even though the manufacturer did not plan an Android 4.1 upgrade to happen soon, someone somewhere decided to leak it.

A developer then put together a custom ROM named RocketROM v2. This tool contains a couple of bugs, but nothing majorly problematic. However, we have to warn you that some features, like Face Unlock and Samsung keyboard, need more work done to fully function.

Requirements

Now then, let’s see what the usual requirements are for the Note N7000. We advise you the following: own a laptop with Windows already installed, root this gadget, fully charge its battery, download ClockworkMod Recovery, get rid of all the software whose job is to protect your comp against security issues, save your messages and create backups for the Note N7000. These are all the pre-requisites you will ever need to fulfill. Now comes the fun part.galaxy-note-n7000
