Sounds like you've been very lucky! Most of the ROM threads are full of problems people have had, and custom roms are often only tested so far. The users do a lot of the testing and bug reporting in general use - complete with bricking, etc. That's one of the reasons flashing a ROM voids your warranty!

In my case I've survived flashing an ICS ROM too, but not without difficulties and the route back to GB was even more perilous.

Hopefully you continue to be lucky and aren't posting about a brick anytime soon.

Getting a hard brick is the easiest for getting a warranty claim as Samsung (any brands actually) has no way of telling what happened. Just act stupid saying upgraded via kies caused that, or plainly act dumb even if you are a geek.

Don't ask how I know cause I like visiting support centre for warranty claim. Changed screen, buttons (equal change screen), battery and etc.

We are in 5th month literally and i honestly never thought this could take so long. I could easily be on the whiner's side if i did not flash Criskelo's custom ICS build. If even custom rom builders doing this for hobby in their spare times can do this so great, i would expect all those engineers at Samsung could do much better considering it's their day time job, they work as a crowded team, they have all the resources, and they are properly trained and educated to do this.

Ehm. Not true. Or, are the ROM developers that bricked their own phones with their own creations (angelom again, I'm afraid) ignorant?

No. Bleeding edge is just that, bleeding edge. Your mileage will vary. Bricking a phone with a stable time-tested GB release for the Note is probably down to not reading and/or understanding the instructions but when it comes to them pre-release ICS-ones with homecooked best-effort-kernels you may - to no fault of your own - find yourself way down Pain Avenue, adjacent to **** Creek and close to the river of Misery.

yes is sad that Samsung are the slowest of them all.
most of the tablets have been updated to ICS but look at samsungs GTab 10.1 still running 3.2 in Aus is still 3.1!

i think this time round because of the massive code change from 2.3 to 4.0.3 Samsung needed to modify a large chunk of code.

Mind you that to the avarage user ICS does not bring any extra benefit to the note. Hence the need for the premium pack. If it wasnt for the premium pack am sure that the note would had gotten ICS by now!..
But given the value proposition that it carries (ie taking notes via stylus) samsung needed to re-write and enhance most of their s-memo app.

nevertheless us geeks are not that impressed.. am sure though that Samsung already has ICS for the N7000 in UAT testing and ready to do a higher user base testing

I'm inclined to think the Premium Suite is actually because they knew they didnt have the resources to get ICS out on time, so the throw in some freebies to sweeten the deal and "shut" the users up.

pretty standard tactic when running behind on a project..

Clearly you have never owned an Android powered phone from Motorola. My Previous phone was a Motorola Milestone, which received about 4 updates in 2 years. I think my Note already received 5 or 6.

If that's the case i wish they leaked the UAT testing version at least.
