Samsung announced today that it’s phone/tablet hybrid device, the Galaxy Note, can be upgraded to the current version of Android, called Ice Cream Sandwich.The software update also includes some new apps for the Note that utilise the device’s stylus.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to jump through a few hoops to get the update. Unlike most Android updates that let you download the software directly to your device, you’ll need to get special software for your PC and Mac and sync your phone to your computer. You can download it here.
Even worse, a lot of your settings will revert to default after you perform the update.
- Apps stored in folders on your home screen will be reset.
- The update will unpair Bluetooth devices, so you’ll have to resync them.
- Music playlists and some sound settings will reset.
- If you have a custom image as your wallpaper, it’ll reset to default.
- Some contact groups may be wiped out.
