By now some of you are willing to use your Galaxy Note II as your test drive and not your every day drive. If that so happens to be the case for you, then you might also be interested in knowing that there is now a test Android 4.3 build developed for it.

I say not on your daily phone because being a test firmware, it is far from complete. It does have bugs, and it isn’t as stable as one would expect an official release to be. However, if it’s the Note II your own and the Android 4.3 you can’t wait any longer to try, then by all means give it a go and enjoy what is has to offer.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean


Follow the usual typical steps to complete the installation. The only difference this time around is that Odin has now been updated to version 3.09. This is a jump up from what we normally use — the 3.07. So, if you haven’t managed to downloaded the updated Odin already, you will need to do that before you start installing the firmware.

It will also need its default settings adjusted, because this time don’t check the box called re-partition. If you were to leave them they way the check boxes are naturally when you open ODIN, the re-partition is marked with a “x”.

By the way of features, you will have the Samsung Wallet as well as the Samsung Knox.
