Yeah this article is pretty much completely wrong. This is not a Jelly Bean update for the existing Galaxy Note 10.1 which was released last year. This is a new LTE version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 which has had Jelly Bean since release, and this is simply a minor update to that tablet (Jelly Bean -> slightly updated Jelly Bean).

We’re still waiting on the existing versions of the Galaxy Note 10.1 (N8000 and N8010) to get Jelly Bean.


What’s the story with Samsung updates?? I’ve got the n8010, which has been getting JB 4.1 everywhere but Australia (even NZ has got it!), and here they are rolling out the n8020 which has only just been released in the last month…. Argggg. I’m getting impatient!


Talk about misleading article headline! I got all excited to think that my “released last year” Note 10.1 is getting some jelly bean goodness. But no, there’s nothing for the 3g N8000, yet.


Hate to burst your bubble, but the update is for the newly released LTE version. The WiFi version is the GT-N8010, which I have and there is no update as yet. So please do your homework before making incorrect posts.

Out now


typical it is the wifi version only yet another false start

So the unbranded version of N8020 firmware is available, but where can we buy the ‘unbranded N8020 australia’ device?

Check out JB, Harveys and Dick Smith. I believe they were tocking the ‘unbranded’ version of the Note II


No, it’s actually the LTE version. which already had Jelly Bean since its release.


Hey Joel, grammar check for “Last last year” Second Line 🙂
