    • Viraj SK

      Yes, you can. But if you are using AT&T Galaxy Note, then you’ll need to unlock your phone again (after flashing this firmware)…

  • johncy gss

    hi! i just tried to do your steps in updating i717 to ics,, how long would it take to open the device when you finished rebooting it ? tnx

  • kojo

    Just wanna say thank you.My i717 now has the official-ics-4-0-4-uclf6.Please always keep us abreast with new developments.Great job.

    • Viraj SK

      You’re Welcome Kojo!

  • dassi

    ok so i did all of the above up to entering into recovery mode, the phone just kept rebooting when i tried this, during one of these attempts to enter recovery mode, the phone seems to have switched to ics 4 without me having to do the factory reset, i checked and the phone is running ics 4.0.4. is it ok that i did not do factory reset?

    • Viraj SK

      That’s OK but it is always recommended to factory reset the phone in order to avoid FCs..

      • Mary

        My Odin never turned yellow, but the update seemed to work fine. Like the person above, it didn’t go into recovery mode, it just said “upgrading” and it seems to work fine. So what does it mean to avoid FCs? Why would I want to wipe out all my data if I don’t have to?

        • Viraj SK

          Not a problem…

    • idnar

      want to enter into Recovery Mode? try these: turn on your note (running ICS 4.0,), then long press the power button until the “shut down” and “restart” option will appear. now select “restart”. as soon as you press “okay”, hold/press the “volume up” + “volume down” simultaneously until you reach the Recovery Mode. There you have it! try it. I’ve done that after updating my samsung galaxy note at&t gingerbread to ICS 4.0 and it works perfectly.

      • dassi

        Thank you so much Idnar, that method got me into recovery mode, i did the whole factory reset thing, and i’m good to go. Merci, gracias, Danke shon.

        • idnar

          You’re very much welcome dass! i also had the same problem after updating to android 4.0.4 ICS, but i tried a lot of different combinations (by pressing different buttons) until i finally got it. Glad to help :)

  • jalandhar

    i tried the steps you indicated and got the message saying “FAIL!” in red. what does that mean?

  • idnar

    Hi! should I continue if the ID COM section turned sky blue 0:[COM35] instead of yellow 0:[COM37]? Please help. I want to update my at&t samsung galaxy note sgh-i717 from gingerbread to ICS. also, my phone is not rooted. I’m from philippines and i am using a SIM card from here (Globe telecoms.) Hoping you can help me.

    also, the my phone had been unlocked. after the firmware update, will my phone remain unlocked or i should unlock it again?

    • Viraj SK

      You should continue with the process (even if it’s sky blue).
      And after upgrade, you will have to unlock your Note again..

      • idnar
