Change your CSC Code to German and upgrade via KIES; this will also factory reset your phone.
so on phone :
*#272*IMEI# then change the CSC to DBT.
Phone will reset.
Change language to English (bottom right icon)
follow prompts to setup
Connect to KIES and the phone will update to ICS.
When your finished, you change the CSC code back to whatever you had before

Omg does this really work? Anyone tested it, left my note at a friend's place, if this works I will bang on his door and get my phone back to do it, some one please test it and report.

Having a german csc isn't enough, you need to be on a dbt GB firmware too.

OK I can confirm the update has worked perfectly. I was previously on a UK GB 2.3.6 ROM which had a multi-CSC (just look on forums for one), now have 4.0.3 ROM.

Wow thanks for testing it out, looks like my friend is gonna get a rude awakening in a couple minutes, thanks once again for testing, hope everyone enjoys the forever waited ICS on their notes, hopefully the stock ics keyboard isn't puke like gb's stock keyboard.

Ps. Is there a root out for the ICS already?

do *#06# to get your IMEI. Make a note of it.

then do *#272*IMEI#

this where you can select a different CSC, but only if your current ROM supports multiple CSC's. There will be a list of them if it does. Watch though, any changes you make here will factory reset your phone as the new Country.

I have loads of them in there but not the DBT one.

someone needs to modify the first post to let ppl know it will auto wipe your phone immediately.

By wipe your phone, do you mean all internal storage or just factory reset the phone, leaving sd untouched?

Guys be extra carefull I have just wiped up my neatly set up phone for nothing.

Yep, just nuked my Note to blank slate. plus, no CBT available.
Can someone point in the right direction of how to load a firmware that does include the CBT CSC?
My CSC was TTT, anyone know what that means?

If not available, how can I make a mixed firmware CSC with both TTT (my original CSC) + CBT (German based CSC needed for Keis upgrade)?

thanks!

No DBT in the list

I am using Note in india. With this method my note does not show option for DBT, though it gives me following codes:
TML , SLK, NPL, MDV, INU, INS, ETR.
Any catch ?
