If by any chance you happen to own a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, you should be happy to hear that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Wi-Fi model of the tablet has been leaked, and you are free to get it. Even though the phone make hasn’t officially released the firmware upgrade yet, online publication Sam Mobile claims that the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Note 8.0 is “completely official”, adding that after the software is installed the battery life of the tablet will be improved, and the OS itself will run smoother.
Not long ago, a leaked Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean ROM for the Galaxy S3 has also appeared. However, it seems that the former Samsung flagship, as well as the Galaxy Note 2, will be updated directly to Android 4.3, according to a recent rumor. Sam Mobile also provides a set of steps on how to install the firmware upgrade on your Galaxy Note 8.0 (remember that we are talking about the Wi-Fi version). The instructions should be followed carefully by those who want to but the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean ROM to the test.
We do not encourage anybody to install software that is not official, and if something happens to your device you will be the only one responsible. However, if you follow the instructions you will be just fine. Also, it’s better if you back up all your data before beginning the process.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 was announced by the company at MWC 2013 and it has been available for purchase for quite a while. The tablet may be seen as a rival of the iPad Mini, but it’s a lot better in terms of specs than Apple’s product, hence its price. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is a little more expensive than the other tablets in its class, such as the Galaxy Tab line, which is more budget friendly. The device currently runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
