Galaxy Note 2 N7100 has received today a brand new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OTA Update with the XXDMB6 build number. This update has been pushed out to UK and Europe regions and it can be flashed via Samsung KIES or right from your device’s notification panel. The update shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes and you won’t lose any data during the process.
You will receive the update only if you’re running the stock Android operating system. Rooted devices won’t get the OTA Update pushed to their devices and, it it does appear, then it is not recommended to install it. That’s because you might lose important files in the process. Updating a Samsung device is easy when the phone runs on stock firmware as you will simply press several buttons and the new firmware is installed.
This is the latest Jelly Bean OTA Update and you should install it on your device as it will solve several bugs and errors that your phone might’ve features until now.
The XXDMB6 firmware build brings small tweaks over the previous XXDMB5 version. Also, bug fixes are added and some TouchWiz functions and features have been updated. This update is unbranded and it is destined for devices from United Kingdom and European regions. You will be able to update any unlocked Galaxy Note 2 smartphones but, only if you flash it manually using KIES or the ODIN tool. At the end of this post you will find a manual updating tutorial that teaches you how to use Odin and the firmware image file to flash it on your phablet. Note that that’s a guide for advanced Android users and it will work even for rooted phones that are running stock firmware. If your device is currently sporting a custom ROM, then you will be forced to flash a 100% stock Android 4.1.2 JB firmware before flashing the XXDMB6 update.
If you think that you can flash the firmware update without our help, then you can download it from HERE. If you don’t know how to use ODIN then you should follow this link here.
