The international version of the Galaxy Note first received the Jelly Bean update a couple months ago.
What’s My Current Android Version?
The best way to check is to go to Menu > Settings > About Phone. If you have versions I717UCLA1, I717UCLF6, or I717UCMB4 then you should try to update your version. Once you have upgraded, expect to see version I717UCMD3 for Jelly Bean.
How Do I Upgrade To Jelly Bean?
The basic steps is to run Samsung Keis on your computer, then connect your Galaxy Note. Once Keis recognizes the device, a pop-up should show up notifying you that that the Jelly Bean update is available to you. Simply go through the motions and begin your upgrade.
