Samsung Galaxy Note is one of the most popular phones in the current phone market, the possible reason why it’s so much popular is its huge screen size of 5.3inch with the awesome pixel density of 285ppi. The reason may be any but the outcome is that Samsung Galaxy Note is in too much demand, especially among youth. The by default OS of Samsung Galaxy Note is Android v2.3.5(Gingerbread) and is expected to soon get the ICS update but who knows whether it will ever come or not because there’s isn’t any official confirmation from the company on this very topic. So, if you are worried thinking if you would ever be able to use the Ice-Cream Sandwich OS then let me tell you that, yes you can! Team Rocket has brought to you the Custom Android v4.0.3 ROM. But before performing the tutorial, make sure you carefully read the “NOTE”, “DISCLAIMER” and “THINGS REQUIRED” column.
