TELUS says Galaxy Note users can now upgrade to Jelly Bean

note
Original Samsung Galaxy Note (SGH-I717) owners have been dreaming of the day that they’d receive the upgrade to Jelly Bean. For months this has been delayed, but according to TELUS’ “Android software updates” site reveals that Note users can finally taste Jelly Bean. They state that OS version 4.1.2 is being released “in stages” and “your smartphone will receive a notification when this update becomes available to you.”

Hit up your device (via Samsung Kies) and let us know if you’ve received it.

  • BaconTelevision

    EDIT: apparently kies wasn’t connecting to the server, JB update is available for Rogers variant. OTA download isnt available, so it must be updated via Kies

  • Guille

  • PT

    Wind Mobile has released 4.12 for over 2 months now. What a joke!

  • ArberBeq

    Hopefully the rogers one gets some Jelly Bean love without no bloat ware.

  • kevinsebby22

  • Joshua Smikle

    cant believe they didnt do it over the air, attempted to do it via keys as they prescribed and it bricked my phone…

  • Christopher

    Hello fellow galaxy note users, to feel the full jelly bean experience finish your update to your device. once it complete back up any or all important files. then go in settings>backup reset>factory reset. clear it all, it takes 10 mins. Start from scratch, add the apps you want. their chance one of the old app or apps had support stopped at ics, plus it fresh start to your phone. you notice a boost in speed and less ram usage. Enjoy!

      Multi-window is gimmick and all of OEMs doesn’t care of Canadian market. Sorry for this bad news.

  • kevinsebby22

    Kies is not working getting frustrated

  • kevinsebby22

    someone help

  • Norm

    I updated my phone yesterday through kies it was better then waiting for the notification.

    • kevinsebby22

      I cant kies to work

  • blaiser

    Connected to Kies yesterday around 11 p.m. and the download took no more than 15 minutes. Note now works perfectly smooth with no loss in usability. My original attempt to connect onto Kies failed on my first computer (Kies leaves alot to be desired). I had to re-install Kies via Samsung’s website onto another computer to make the download possible.Worth the effort.

  • Donovan

    Finally got the GNote updated to JB. The downloading process on Kies went smooth. I’m loving JB on the Note right now!!!!!

  • jepoi28

    Yebah.

  • Eric Haddad

    Had to flash via ODIN as kies did not recognize my device :s. Now experiencing battery drain issues and serious lag.

  • kevinsebby22

    is your model i1717d cause if so i still cant get it

  • kevinsebby22

    Said the samething to me

  • Rick Berglund

    Dont be in a hurry to taste Jelly Bean if you have a newer Uconnect radio or other older other models of different bluetooth software in cars. I took the plunge with mine and my wifes galaxy note I717D only to find problems keeping the phones paired, No solutions from Samsung, Telus,or Dealership. So I had to figure out how to revert back to ICS, now all is well except I don’t have JB it was so cool. Well I hope whoever needs to get with the program does because I don’t know what kind of phone to buy next, you can bet I will go out to the parking lot and be sure it pairs and works and remains paired before 72 hours by law and well I think my provider gives a month but you cannot use the phone past a certain amount, I need an hour that is it

    Doesn’t work on my I717D, keep having error on Samsung Kies
