Guys if you use Odin V1.83 don't use the supplied .pit file as it is for 32GB NOTE

Comments from people installing it:
-Currently very bad comment from people installing it.
-With this leak for Europe I got back that ugly banding
-"Null" problem still here
Solution1: Mobile odin - click cache - point to 'CSC' file of downloaded rom - re-flash
Solution2: To solve null keyboard issue re-flash and use English kingdom language

-try to flash via Odin v1.87 = stuck on "hidden"
-try to flash it via Odin v1.85 = stuck on...
-try to flash it via ...v1.83 = stuck on...
-flash via Odin Desktop doesn't work!

-Odin Mobile don't find N7000 and without Odin M impossible to flash CSC for resolve "null" keyboard
-This ROM sucks. The Chinese one is much faster.
-I do not hear anything and people I call hear some heavy noise only.
Solution: turn off noise reduction
-The call sound can be fixed just enable noise cancellation
-Major problem. They cant hear you either. You can only hear them thru speaker. So no phone
-Camera is now rubbish
-Buggy and slow
-Screenshots do not work anymore. Tested pen and power + home
-MTP Is not working
-No USB Storage Working
-No Sound during call (only speakerphone mode)
-Not a daily rom !

-Please do not flash this. At other ICS thread they did and it sucks. Slow as hell. Browser crash. No sound with call. Stop!!!!!!

-Is kinda snappy but I so wish I hadn't of flashed. Getting a lot of crashes and force closes. Dunno what to do now because I can't start mobile Odin. Says device not detected

OK: has working torch, video payer, wifi, wallpaper can be changed
Not OK: no ear piece, no call sound only in speaker phone

Wifi / no . Too BAD. but some guy no prob with WIFI
3g / yes
camera / yes
facelock / yes
calling / yes
messages / yes
mailing / yes

People advice, install Chinese ICS
Note: Chinese ICS use Q1_20110914_16GB.pit
