The official Galaxy Note Ice CReam Sandwich update may have been delayed until Q2 of this year, but thanks to the ever helpful leak, AT&T Galaxy Note users can already get their hands on a TouchWiz'd build of Android 4.0.
According to some internal sources, this build could very well be a nearly finished release candidate that was meant for internal testing. So far, the only apparent bug has been a one-time glitch when you first update the Google Play Store, so it seems that this very well may be true.
Note owners will have to download the installation package from RootzWiki and flash it via Samsung's Odin computer software to use the update, and even though it's not rooted it will still void your warranty. While this doesn't carry nearly as much risk as the Droid RAZR leak from earlier this week, most users will probably want to go ahead and wait for the official version to be released instead of installing the leak.
What the leak does give us, however, is an interesting look at what Samsung has changed in the Ice Cream Sandwich UI. Unfortunately, much of TouchWiz remains, and the update doesn't even seem to retain very many Ice Cream Sandwich design elements.
Still, the update should be welcomed by all users, and we can hope that this leak indicates that an official release is coming soon.[The Verge]
