Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.1.2 ROM leaked with new Ink Effect lockscreen feature

by: Bams SadewoNovember 20, 2012

Those who own the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 can now join in on the newer Jelly Bean flavor fun, for the Android 4.1.2 firmware for the phablet has leaked online. It’s not exactly Android 4.2, but there are still some nifty features to be found.

As reported by Sam Mobile, the latest firmware for the Galaxy Note 2 was first uploaded online by a Vietnamese website, tinhte. Here are the details:

  • PDA: N710XXDLJ2
  • Modem: N7100XXDLJ2
  • CSC: N7100OXADLJ2

We’re still looking for the changelog, but from the screenshots, the ROM brings the Ink Effect lock screen to the Note 2. As the name implies, you’ll see a colorful ink effect (pink, orange, green, or blue) whenever the S Pen touches the lock screen – except when you have a live wallpaper on the screen. Among other new things, there’s also a multi-window toggle on the notification panel.

The Android 4.1.2 ROM for the Galaxy Note 2 is available to download right here. If you want to give it a go, make sure you backup all important files and know exactly what you’re doing. As always, proceed at your own risk. You can always play it safe by waiting for the official update to arrive.

    It’s interesting you name the multi-window toggle in the notifications menu. I do not have this feature on my 4.1.1 despite having the multi-window function. Others I have read have this already.

    So is this for the International GN2 only or does it cover US models, although Verizon will take 6 months to review before release.

    I can only hope it arrives with the GN2 on Verizon next week. So what about the GN 10.1 Samsung, where is 4.1.2 for that?
