New test Jelly Bean firmware for the Galaxy Note packs Multi-View mode and many new features

The Galaxy Note is one lucky phablet. Not only did it get an official update to Jelly Bean, which is still rare enough, but it is also about to get a new major update, bringing the cool Multi-View feature from the Note II.

If you are impatient, you don’t even have to wait any longer to get some of the Multi-View action on your Galaxy Note, as a test firmware with build number N7000XXLSA is now available for download.

The update comes courtesy of SamMobile and is based on Android 4.1.2. Sadly, not all of the S-Pen features are implemented yet, as Samsung has yet to pour them into its Jelly Bean source code.

And unlike the Jelly Bean ROM that leaked at the beginning of November, this one is the real deal coming straight from Samsung’s R&D labs. In order to install the update, you need to flash it with Odin and that’s pretty much it. Here is the changelog of the test firmware, as reported by SamMobile. Keep in mind that this is a pre-release firmware and some bugs are to be expected.

  • Android 4.1.2 – Build JZO54K
  • Buttery Smooth Performance & Great Stability (Thanks to Project Butter)
  • Multi-View (Multi Windows Multitasking, same as in Note II)
  • Multi-View can also be disabled
  • Page Buddy
  • Notification Panel can now be customized
  • New Additions in Notification Panel
  • Smart Rotation (Screen Display adjusts to your angle of sightings)
