I am currently on rooted Gingerbread 2.3.6, Baseband Version N7000XXLA4, Build Number JPLA1. Can I just start with Step 8? It would be nice to have more download links like mediafire or something. Thanks

I think so. That's what I did for my KK2 build!

I think I have found an (ok) solution for now. I will make edits on the first page to reflect the info.

I actually think it is somewhat louder than GB builds. Try the equalizer and sound effects in the stock music player. I'm sure you will like em.

I don't know what measures google has taken to prevent fragmentation, but I think GB and ICS versions of apps might be different. But hey, if it works for you, why not?

Thanks for the guide!

I don't think I see arabic or hebrew in the languages option. So, i'm not sure if RTL languages will render right everywhere in android (that includes apps in RTL). But Go keyboard DOES offer RTL languages.

Is it step 8? (I'm still on stock rom, only rooted with CWM, and superuser)

It depends on your baseband. I suggest using the KKA, but YMMV. Get a nandroid of your current setup and give it a try. If it has problems, you can start over from step 1.

Thank you.

I will try and upload more mirrors later tonight. Sorry for the trouble.

LA4 is newer than the KKA I recommend. So there is definitely no harm in trying. If you start having trouble with calls and GPS, you might have to start over from KKA.

I have a brand new International Galaxy Note and am about to start this ICS install.

Do I need to do some type of full backup of my present GB install before starting if for everwhat reason I want to return my Note back to 100% original stock install?

Thanks

YES, totally! You should backup you GB in case anything goes wrong after the successful flashing, like me... Do a CWM backup and you should be fine and add a RomToolbox or TitaniumBackup of your apps. Also, if you can do sms/mms/contact/calendar/pictures backup through myBackupPro or something similar, that would be great!

Hi,

I'm a noob, can you explain a little bit on the part "11. start your restore, and it will work." in the "##### Getting back to your old Ginger Bread ROM :" section...

How do I exactly start the restore? sorry for the noob question...

thanks.

Finally I had the nerve to give it a try. Now I'm enjoying the ICS. So far so good.

Thank you for a clear and very comprehensive guide. All worked well. The only hiccup was installing CWM, and the need to put one file in one folder. Otherwise, the main issue is the slow download of files. Thank you again.
