N7000: How to flash N7000ZSKK1 (2.3.6)

I would like to flash my Galaxy Note to Hong Kong version 2.3.6. It's reported have better battery performance and S-Pen alignment. What should I do?

Download these files:
  1. Download N7000ZSKK1 (password:
  2. Download ODIN
Now you are ready to flash.

1. Run ODIN on your PC

Note: Make sure your phone is 100% for better battery calibration

2. Odin Configuration (See image above for files setup)
- Check Re-Partition, Auto Reboot, and F. Reset Time options.

- Check and select .pit file
- Check and select PDA file
- Check and select PHONE file
- Check and select CSC file

Note: Bootloader. Leave it BLANK

3. Ready your phone in Download Mode by pressing  
Volume down + Home + Power on Button, then press Volume Up to continue.

4. Connect your PC and Phone via USB cable provided until COM port connected.
5. Once ready, click Start button

6. Sit back and relax and let's it finished. Green and PASS
7. Disconnect phone. DONE

Do the reset by pressing *2767*3855# from dial pad. Extremely dangerous. It will WIPE your phone after pressing #. Do BACK-UP!

You should have this at the end of flashing...

Important: After reboot remember to Change Language to English on the first screen. By default it's Chinese.

For your knowledge:
  • PDA is the operating system with its programs and settings included.
  • PHONE is the modem firmware file, parts of which are required to access the hardware.
  • CSC (for consumer software customisation) are the regional settings applied which may install additional programs as well as provider-specific settings (APN).
-Moving from one region to another region ROM required ODIN in order to have proper or clean firmware installed. Patching technique sometime might introduce unexpected problem.
 -Rooting using zergRUSH is the cleanest way to inject SU and Busybox.

    hi! have a polish galaxy note with
    baseband -> XXKJ4
    kernel -> XXKJ4
    build -> XXKJ4

    stil on stock 2.3.5 but not getting the OTA update to 2.3.6

    want to update to 2.3.6 coz of high BATT usage on 2.3.5

    can i use this guide to FLASH my NOTE? do i need ROOT for that?
    if i do this, can i still get the official ICS update from SAMSUNG once it gets released?

    thanks in advance!!

  4. Flash stock rom via odin. Root not required.

    We could flash ics via odin as well....or via kies as normal.

    I tried this stock zskk1 connected to kies with no problem.

  5. how to create backup before upgrading the firmware?

  6. The best is titanium backul. Checkout my download area.

    For me google apps backup and restore good enough. Its inside privacy. Allow google backup and restore

    I updated my firmware by following this post. However, after update, my phone is still with 72% Android OS usage. Do you know why?

  10. Maybe you have more widget on your screen. I had removed all the widget and reduce running services at the background.

    anyway, why not try LA6...smoother..stable..good battery life...if you rooted...get cf-root mobile odin and its kernel..
