If you want to enjoy Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean on your Android device, you will have to either wait for the official updates or flash a Jelly Bean-based custom ROM. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000, it's still unclear when it will receive the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade.
Some users have become so impatient that they have decided to flash custom ROMs just to have a taste of the latest Android OS. Team Asylum's build of CyanogenMod 10 ROM for the N7000, for instance, will let you enjoy Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with added features.
XDA Developers member zX TheRipper Xz has provided the Asylum CyanogenMod 10 ROM for your Samsung Galaxy Note. This ROM is based on the popular CyanogenMod 10 ROM with added features. It also integrates the AROMA Installer, which allows you to customize the ROM at installation time and makes the installation process easy.
The AROMA Installer features the following options:
- Choices for kernels (CyanogenMod 10 or HydraCore)
- Set GPS locale for a faster GPS lock
- Set your LCD density
- Homescreen launcher (Apex or Nova)
- Install Google Apps
