Here is good news for those owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 who have been waiting for the latest Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update. A test firmware, N7000BLS4TCE, based on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy Note, got leaked Thursday.

Sammobile reported that the leaked Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean test firmware, provided by “Tel Cel from Mexico,” was just like any other official firmware. All what the users are required to do is to flash the firmware with Odin. There’s no need to flash any fixes after that.

“We have FULLY TESTED this firmware and this firmware works to our knowledge perfectly as any other official firmware the only thing is, it has different icons and widgets which are from the provider (alot of Bloatware),” read a post over at Sammobile.

The post also stated that N7000BLS4TCE, the leaked Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware in question, is the same as the N7000XXLSA Firmware and lacks the S-Pen features.

Below are some of the key enhancements and features in the new Jelly Bean update:

- Android 4.1.2 – Build JZO54K
