Galaxy Note 2 GT N7100 gets Android
4.1.2 Jelly Bean with JellyBam ROM
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT N7100 users can now enjoy another custom Jelly Bean update, via JellyBam ROM. Thanks to XDA Developers member iGio90, Samsung's new phablet (hybrid phone/tablet) can access a plethora of features drawn from the best existing custom ROMs - AOKP, CyanogenMod 10 and ParanoidAndroid.
The ROM supports a high degree of customisation options including colours, screen alpha, custom home action and hardware buttons on the lockscreen and more. You no longer have to install Google Apps separately, as it comes bundled with the package. YouTube fanatics can enjoy the hacked 3G+Wi-Fi HD 720p playback feature on the ROM. Music buffs are in for a special treat, as Beats Audio, Clearbass Sound and xLoud by Sony, and Dolby Digital Sound deliver exuberant sound on the fly.
