Android 4.1.2 ROM leaks out for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 bringing funky new ink effect
We still do not have the full list of new features, but what we do know is that the update brings a neat ink effect when you unlock the device. It looks as ink is spilled and you can pick the color. The effect can be applied to all wallpapers except live ones. Also, the notifications toggle in the dropdown now includes the multi-windows mode.
And here are the technical details about the update:
- PDA: N710XXDLJ2
- Modem: N7100XXDLJ2
- CSC: N7100OXADLJ2
Now, we have to stress that this 4.1.2 update is not yet official. You can download it at the link below, but you’d better back up before starting experimenting with it, and just be cautious and if not perfectly certain wait for the official update to arrive.

Why not? Bump the resolution to 1080p and you have a 400 ppi screen. Probably a better camera. Option to disable capactive touch while using the stylus.

Sammy, you are so clever! Other companies should take a lesson from them. They are one of the most customer friendly bunch of people. Not in the past, but now they are for sure.

Wow, Samsung is on a roll here, no doubt the best smartphone maker around, both in hardware & software.

Awesome! Now if they'd get that feature on the original note, that'd be great. Although getting jelly bean might be asking a little too much.

Already doing so. Patiently I might add :P

My last 5 phones have been Samsungs. And now I have the Note 2 . Other companies would have to seriously pick up in features for me to switch . I am a very peased customer !!!

I wouldn't call the ink effect new, I've been able to do this on my note II ever since I tried to unlock it with my stylus

just installed mine. quadrant score is now between 7120 and 7310. almost close to optimus G if am right. the official release would be dope. samsung is really working on software now. android just needs to be optimized more and trust me with the current hardwares it will be flawless.

Just got note 2 from att. I look forward to multiview! To install the new software do I need to root my phone? I downloaded the three files referenced but when i click them nothing happens. What do I do after downloading the files to get update?
