Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean (AT&T) – Finally (Info Inside)

by Mihai Matei on May 7, 2013

Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean Goes Live at AT&T


We have some pretty good news for Samsung Galaxy Note owners out there, specifically for those who are also customers of AT&T and own the carrier’s variant of the aforementioned device. As you may recall, Samsung began the Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean roll-out back in February, but due to countless deployment issues and other unknown reasons, the roll-out process has been long and arduous. As a result, not every Note unit out there benefits from the Jelly Bean goodness. Add to that the fact that carrier variants are usually latecomers that get new software updates after the unlocked/international model(s), and we have ourselves a case of a roll-out that hasn’t reached its peak, months after the initial release.

Fortunately, things have recently changed for AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note owners, as Android 4.1 has now been finally released. Check out the details after the break.

Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean at AT&T

AT&T Galaxy Note owners can now download and apply Android 4.1 on their device, but if you’re waiting for an OTA release and a notification on your device, you might sit there waiting for a long time.


The reason for this is because the carrier hasn’t mentioned anything about an over-the-air release. Instead, the new OS is available for download via Samsung KIES (you’ll find the necessary instructions by hitting the link.)

Once you’ll bump your AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note to Jelly Bean you’ll be greeted by a large number of new features and improvements, including a new notification area with actionable notifications, Google Now and Project Butter. Additionally, new features such as Popup Video and Pop-up Note will also be on-board, ready to enrich your experience.

Feel free to visit AT&T’s customer blog if you have any issues with the update, and don’t hesitate to let us know what you like most about the new OS.

    I got it (after several tries) on Monday thru Kies and my battery usage went thru the ceiling !! I barely make it thru 1/2 day (5 hours) without any calls or other usage — the background apps eat it all up.

    And where is the multi-window every other release of 4.1.2 has?
