UCLC5 Ice Cream Sandwich Update for AT&T Galaxy Note Leaked

UCLC5 ICS Update AT&T Galaxy Note

Going by what the world has seen too many times with international version of Galaxy S and Galaxy S2 devices as regards new OS firmware leaks, compared to their US variants, one would be right to assume the international Galaxy Note would get a decent Ice Cream Sandwich firmware leak way earlier than its AT&T counterpart. But, surprisingly, an Android 4.0 firmware dubbed as UCLC5 got leaked today for the AT&T Galaxy Note, SGH-i717, while there is none good ICS leak for global Note.

The leaked ICS firmware for AT&T Galaxy Note, UCLC5, is based on Android 4.0.3, which was the latest version of android OS until Android 4.0.4 broke out some days before. Anyway, here’s how you can install UCLC5 on your AT&T Galaxy Note. Do not try this on international Galaxy Note, N7000.


This firmware and the guide below is compatible only and only with AT&T Galaxy Note, SGH-i717. It’s not compatible with any other device, including international version N7000. Check your device’s model number in Settings » About phone.

Pre-Installation Requirements/Tips

  1. This procedure will wipe all your apps, data and settings (but it will NOT touch your SD cards, so don’t worry about those). Backup your Apps and important data — bookmarks, contacts, SMS, APNs (internet settings), etc. This Android backup guide would help you.
  2. If you have Samsung’s PC software Kies installed, un-install it first because it may interrupt the flashing process.
  3. Drivers! — it’s important you’ve the proper drivers installed. Download links below.
    32 bit (x86) Windows |   64-bit (x64) Windows

Instructions (only for very experienced users):


To install the UCLC5 on your Galaxy Note, you gotta download the firmware (a .exe file) from here and then boot your Galaxy Note into download mode. For this, first power off the phone, and then press and hold Volume Down and Power buttons together until you see a screen. Press Volume Up to continue to download mode. Now, run the firmware’s .exe file and wait for Odin window to show up. It could take time for Odin window to appear after you’ve run the .exe file, so have patience. If you don’t get an Odin window, then abandon this process. Don’t do anything else. And once you get Odin window, connect your Note to PC, it should show in Odin as added! Press Start to begin updating the Galaxy Note with ICLC4 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich firmware.

    I’m a “die hard” Apple user (currently have two iPhones, 3GS and 4) but I am dead set on making the leap from Apple to Android and the big ? Is, GNote, S3, or 1X?
    Right now, I’m leaning greatly towards the GNote, however, I am curious if I will be able to download the OS that’s included with the S3 onto the GNote… I like the SVoice, and the UI looks kinda “smoother” and more “New” if that makes sense. Would REALLY like some advice from anyone knowledgeable in that area. My fear is that AT&T will release the OS for the GNote but it will be specially designed for the GNote and not include some of the things that I liked with the S3. For example, the water drip lock screen, I’m not a total idiot and while I don’t care if that is a feature on the note I’m curious if it will/could include that feature. If so, then I’m sure it will do some of the other small things as well.

    I have NO CLUE how the Droids work as far as “Jailbreaking” or whatever it is that Droids are called after being modified. All my Apple devices are JB because I HATE not being able to tweak my settings the way I feel is best. I hear that droids are HIGHLY customizable, stock. Is that true?
