Samsung Galaxy Note ICS source code released
Developers, rejoice! The Samsung Galaxy Note’s Android Ice Cream Sandwich kernel source code has been released by Samsung on their official Open Source website. This means that programmers can leverage the code and start developing their own custom ROMs, tailor made for the Galaxy Note.

Up until now, developers were working on ROMs with leaked code, and now that they have the full source, it will be easier for them to make better and safer custom ROMs.

As for the casual user, you probably shouldn’t care much at the moment. But check back a couple of weeks later, and you’d probably be looking at many interesting ROMs for your Galaxy Note. The code is below and you can share your experience with the handset in the comments section.

Hopefully this means the Note's ICS update isn't far behind. GIMME NAO! I MUST HAVE THE MELTY ICE CREAM GOODNESS!!!

One of the features I'm looking forward to the most, beside Face Unlock, is the ultra easy multitasking.

Is the source code for the GT-N7000 or the SGH-I717 or both? Thank you Victor I knew you loved the Galaxy Note at heart.

I'd like to know this too... I wish someone could build some kind of script that would allow us i717 users to use the international note's roms. It doesn't seem impossible. This way they could combine the forums and make the developer support much stronger (much like what they did with the HTC Sensation). I wish at&t would have just left the note how it was originally.

Wait a min I think this is only for the International GT-7000 version not the SGH-I717 for AT&T, Bell, or Rodgers :{[. How long must we wait?

We'll get the update when jelly bean comes out... Samsung makes me mad with their updates. They promise one date and then delay it for 10 years. And seeing that I have the US version, its going to be much longer of a wait for at&t to release it to us. I'm so dumb for wanting 4G. Should have just saved for the international version.
