Non-final Lollipop firmware of Note 3 (Exynos) leaks, available for download
Not much more than a month ago, we saw a leaked build of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3. The leak gave us an inside view of how the new version of Touchwiz will look, along with countless other design enhancements. Other than the leaked video, we haven’t heard much else about the update for the Note 3, but that’s changing thanks to a beta Lollipop build that somehow made its way online.
Apparently, last week a user from Vietnam received a OTA Lollipop update on their Note 3. The user reportedly managed to capture the OTA and the firmware made its way to XDA. The update is for the Exynos version of the phablet (the SM-N900 variant,) so owners of the Snapdragon-powered model typically sold in the US need not apply.
The firmware is available for flashing for those brave souls who would like to try it. Now remember, this is supposed to be only a beta build of the software, so there are likely a ton of bugs and inconsistencies in the software, if you do decide to flash it.
So, is anyone willing to download the beta software? If so, head to the XDA link below and follow the instructions.
