Samsung Galaxy Note 2 received unofficial ROM for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update.

Unfortunately, despite a lot of Android users who were expecting it, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will not receive the official Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update anymore. This is because, according to reports such as that of International Business Times, Samsung is planning to skip the 4.3 update to go directly with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
