Earlier this week, Samsung started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the European variant of the Galaxy Note. However, the official firmware has some serious bugs, performance issues and does not offer any of the visual goodness introduced by Google in Ice Cream Sandwich.
The good news is that starting from today, the Galaxy Note (N7000) is all set to receive official CM9 nightly builds. Even though this is the first official nightly build, it is completely functional without any major bugs. The only bug is that the Speakerphone does not work while on a call. According to the developers this bug will only be fixed once the Ice Cream Sandwich sources are released by Samsung, which should hopefully happen within a couple of weeks from now.
The first nightly build for the handset is already out, and can be downloaded from here. Make sure you are rooted, and are not running the leaked chinese Ice Cream Sandwich firmware on your Galaxy Note before proceeding with the installation.
