  • Upgrading my Galaxy Note to Ice Cream Sandwich

    Is it worth downloading and upgrading to ICS? The download is a pain in the ass and I just wonder if it really makes a big difference over the Android system I am currently using.

    Thoughts?

      Your Galaxy Note has gingerbread on it right now, correct? They've made a lot of improvements since then. Release notes for ICS
      I had a droid with gingerbread last year and then got the galaxy nexus which has 4.0.4 now. Huge difference. I'd say go for it.

        ICS is a big upgrade over gingerbread.

        Of course all the cool kids are running Jelly Bean now.

          I can't get the upgrade to take, for some reason. It won't give me the option to upgrade the firmware even after I have it downloaded on my computer. I hate shit like this and I often wonder why they can't just have this shit automatically update instead of having to fuck with this kind of crap. It never goes the way it should.

            Just stop back at where you bought it, hand it to them and say "make it work".

              After a lol reading it seems like there are some issues with it...at least there was with the initial international version. The hopes are great...battery life is supposed to be a huge increase... But a cpl sites I read said to try and wait a cpl days and see what happens. The international version seems to be bricking some notes and over heating others. Is have the store try or just wait a bit to see if the at&t version has any of the same bugs.
              Good luck.

                Samsung support looks to have a pretty comprehensive how-to here:

                  Samsung must have been overloaded with Kies downloads, as I went to the site and it wouldn't let me download the windows version.

                  Guess my hope to update is put on hold for a while.

                    Got the upgrades to work, took forever to download!

                    I gotta say, I'm liking the new look. Everything is a tad smaller on the screen, allowing more to fit. It reminds me of when PCs went to a higher resolution years ago.

                    Seems to be quite a bit faster too, which is scary because the note was already fast as shit.
