I have a Galaxy Note N7000 that I won in a competition and was unlocked when I got it.
I’ve managed to root the phone and change the Kernel to SpeedMod 3.0.15 which I think has improved battery life and it supposed to be a Kernel that is safe from the eMMC Bug.
But I’m still really scared to install any new ROMs on my phone.
I tried to do the official Samsung update from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 and the installation failed for some unknown reason – I think perhaps because of files that were changed when I rooted the phone
What are the safest ways to upgrade the ROM? Is upgrading a ROM on SpeedMod a safe place to start? as I keep reading about people being told to flash the Abyss Gingerbread Kernel first and then reboot and then upgrade the ROM?
I really can’t afford to brick this phone.September 6, 2012 at 2:06 pm #380Galaxy NoteMember
Very likely, you cannot ‘update’. You probably have to flash new ROMs for your region.November 11, 2012 at 9:05 am #593AnonymousInactive
Yes right. Run Odin3 1.85, set up your Note in download mode and plug it to the PC via standard cable. Make sure the serial port is on and then flash the latest firmware – it will override any custom bootloader and restore the original firmware.
You might as well download the Odin and N7000 manuals to get safe information about all the settings while flashing, an apparently minor mistake can brick your device once and for all.
