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.

The CM10.2 ROM providing Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update was developed by pulser_g2, alongside xplodwild. Some of the new features the OS upgrade will bring to your Galaxy Note 2 are Virtual Surround Sound, Improved Dial Pad, Permission Manager, Bluetooth Low Energy Support, TRIM feature, Theme Engine, new camera applications and a lot more.

Since the CM10.2 ROM is an unofficial firmware that is still undergoing a nightly build process, it is important for those who will use it to follow the installation process as careful as possible to avoid mistakes that could cause problems on the device. Also, you can also experience bugs and other issues on your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 after installing Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update through CM 10.2 ROM.
